This special Adventure & Yoga retreat at the Pacuare River, Costa Rica, is the perfect getaway for all the yoga and adventure enthusiasts. Join us for 3 days and 2 nights on a retreat like no other where you will step out of your comfort zone and experience the many exciting activities that the Costa Rican jungle has to offer.

Our location at Rios Tropicales Lodge will ensure that you regain your connection to mother earth, the elements, and most importantly, deepen your connection with yourself. Let your adventurous self explore both inside and out in this unforgettable yoga retreat. Join us on this journey where Claudia Gallo and Ana Lu Fariña will guide you through their beautiful Yoga sessions and our variety of adventure and ecology guides will guide you through the rest.

What does “ecolodge” really mean? At Rios Tropicales Lodge, it means being surrounded by the beauty and splendor of the primary jungle without having to sacrifice luxury or comfort. And equally important, we don’t sacrifice our magnificent surroundings to make you feel welcome and comfortable. Sustainably built with reclaimed wood and hydroelectric power, our ecolodge is a model of ecotourism (we even have numerous awards to prove it).

At our eco-lodge, you can relax, explore, and enjoy all that Costa Rica has to offer in our 2,000-acre private reserve at the mouth of the Pacuare Gorge. We have over 40 miles of hiking trails and numerous waterfalls, streams, and pools. Our outdoor dining pavilion and lounge allow you to observe local wildlife and hear the sounds found only in a tropical paradise. (http://www.riostropicales.com/pacuare-ecolodge/)

During your stay at Rios Tropicales ecolodge, there will be NO Wi-Fi access or telephone signal. This will allow us to fully immerse ourselves in nature and in the practice of Yoga to fully recharge and align our energy fields. All meals are tailored to your dietary needs and all activities and classes are included but not required. All levels of yoga are welcome to attend the retreat. Claudia and Ana Lu will modify according to your practice.
