Surf Inn Hermosa Yoga Fitness Retreats are designed to help one REVITALIZE, RESTORE, RECHARGE ….. and all while doing fun activities while on vacation in Costa Rica.  They are great way to jump start weight loss and get one motivated to work on one’s self!

The following is a basic outline of what to expect during a typical day on the retreat. We try to stick to a plan, but we are also flexible as we will modify the schedule based on weather and other factors such as tides for the ocean based activities. Every day is a new beginning – starting with nourishment for the body and meditation for the mind; followed by an active day of healthy fitness activities. While you will have some time to be alone, most of the day is filled with outdoor fun, healthy food, clean air and the incredible Costa Rican environment.


  • 7:00am start of the day.  Wake up just a few hundred feet from the Pacific Ocean.
  • 7:15am Begin with a healthy light snack and review the upcoming day’s activities which could include Surfing, SUP (Stand Up Paddle Boarding), High Intensity Interval Training or Hiking. Discuss the level of difficulty, the location, environment of where it will be performed, what clothing to wear and what else to bring.  Yoga may be held on our third floor oceanfront yoga deck or we may choose to hold yoga on the oceanfront lawn or participate in yoga classes at various nearby yoga studios.
