Paradise Rainforest Yoga Retreat Dragonfly Beach Retreat, El Caribe de Costa Rica
Where the Jungle Meets the Ocean 23 – 29 September 2023
Costa Rica is one the most beautiful and biodiverse countries on the planet, an ecological gem of tropical rainforests, rolling green hills and paradise beaches. Dragonfly Beach Retreat is an exquisite, pristine, peaceful sanctuary set in landscaped gardens, surrounded by rainforest and steps from the Caribbean Sea. This is a wild paradise where the jungle meets the ocean and natural habitat to howler monkeys, sloths, toucans, birds and butterflies. You are held in the power of nature’s healing embrace on this extraordinary yoga journey and retreat experience.
Dragonfly Retreat has been ecologically constructed with tropical simplicity in harmony with the beauty of nature. The luxury casitas are set in tropical gardens of indigenous flora and fauna with rainforest views. Each casita has been lovingly designed with handmade teak wood furniture, splashes of colour and a unique hand-painted mural depicting the animals and wildlife of Costa Rica. Enjoy double, twin or single bedrooms, a luxurious bathroom, lounge, kitchen and terrace. These wildly serene retreat lodgings hold you peacefully in the heart of Mother Nature.
On waking up in this paradise place, we will do a blissful sunrise sadhana on the open-air yoga shala surrounded by rainforest, wildlife, bird song and the sound of the ocean. Moving through beautiful sequencing and creative namaskars, we will embody the beauty and power of nature through elemental inspired Vinyasa Flow and Dharma Yoga. These soulful practices create a sense of connection, openness and vibrancy, leaving you feeling lovingly uplifted and alive. In the afternoons, we will surrender to an introspective Yin Yoga and meditation practice at the yoga shala and on the beach, allowing your being to rest, rejuvenate and renew.
Sunrise to Sunset immerse yourself in the wild natural beauty of the Caribbean Sea and soft sands where wildlife swings in the rainforest as you walk along the shore. Swim in the serene pool, relax and read surrounded by tropical gardens or indulge in a luxurious massage.
Costa Rica’s fertile land gifts the food of the gods for our paradise retreat nourishment. Your day begins with a divine coconut and tropical fruits by the pool. After our creative, uplifting yoga sadhana, we will share a delicious, nutritious organic vegetarian Buddha Bowl, Costa Rican coffee and natural fruit smoothie at Namu Cafe. In the evenings, we will experience delectable cuisine at Argentine, Thai and Caribbean restaurants to immerse in local culture and ambience.
Dragonfly is steps from the pristine Caribbean beaches of Punta Uva, Playa Chiquita and Arrecife with aquamarine waters that are home to world-class surf, snorkelling and paddle boarding. In addition to sun and sand, the laid back yet lively town of Puerto Viejo features an array of restaurants, boutiques, coffee shops and farms.
This wildly abundant region offers a variety of experiences, excursions and activities. Explore the local area, beaches and Nature Reserve by bicycle. Visit spectacular waterfalls, hike along the idyllic white sands, coral reefs and tropical vegetation at Cahuita National Park, birdwatch at the Kekoldi Indian Reserve or go horseback riding along the pristine shores.
This Paradise Rainforest Retreat where the jungle meets the ocean is an extraordinary and unforgettable setting where the power of nature pervades your body-being and takes you on a soul journey home.
