Accommodation

Costa Dulce (the sweet coast in Spanish) is a full service eco lodge intertwined with nature. Much thought and consideration has gone into the location of all of the buildings keeping the jungle undisturbed and vibrant. To preserve the natural beauty of the jungle, no machinery was used in the construction of Costa Dulce. The entire place has been has been hand built using traditional construction methods. ​​

Spread across a jungle hill rising up from the from Playa Escameca Grande, Costa Dulce consists of eleven individual Bungalows, two yoga shalas, a large lounge/common area, wellness center, and a restaurant; the Dulce Cocina. Enjoy ocean views while relaxing in a hammock or sofa from your front porch. Open air design in all of their unique rooms keeps you cool while connecting you with nature.

The Casa Ola lounge provides a big common area to meet fellow travellers and is a great place to have a cold beverage and watch the sun go down over the surf.

Dulce Hotel and Retreat Centre has grown organically, integrating itself with the surrounding natural environment. They are committed to a grass roots approach to tourism and a more sustainable future through improving the social, economic, and environmental well-being of the surrounding communities.

Dorm

There are five beds in each dorm and there will most likely be one all female dorm and one coed dorm. There is a shared bathroom and the dorm is located closer to the common area so it can be a bit noisier.

Shared room

In a shared room, if you come with a friend or a partner you will have a private room for two. If you are coming solo you will be in a room of two or three people. The shared rooms are a bit nicer and quieter than the dorm rooms.

Premium rooms

Most premium rooms are in the casitas which are stand-alone units in the quietest part of the village. They are the newest units and can be described as comfortable, cozy, airy, and well designed. There is also a premium room with a king bed that is in the back of one of the big Casas with a private bath.

Private rooms are for one person and you can choose between a standard private or a premium private.

Instructors

Jessica Desiree
Jess embraces letting the beauty you love be what you do! She first began teaching yoga in remote villages in Mongolia and was amazed at yoga’s universal ability to inspire and heal. She enjoys guiding her students toward a celebration of the heart, an awareness of the intuitive body, and a deep sense of belonging. She embodies the belief that until you give adequately to yourselves, shining light into your own souls, only then can you find the wealth of energy to give with true intention.
