Open-air Pavilion

Commune with nature in our peaceful open air, wooden pavilion, a hidden sanctuary in our secluded jungle paradise. The floor is teak, designed especially for yoga and movement with high wooden ceilings. It can comfortably accommodate 20 for yoga, and more for other activities. Looking out, you are surrounded by lush green flora, flowers and abundant nature. The ocean roar becomes more audible during high tide, a beautiful addition to the practice of meditation. Bird songs, butterflies, and an occasional hummingbird contribute to the inspirational atmosphere. It’s an ideal location for workshops, educational courses, events and celebrations. Use this space to practice yoga, dance, meditation, or whatever calls to your heart. Props include yoga mats, blocks, cushions and blankets.

Bocas de Nosara

We are within walking distance from Bocas de Nosara (Nosara River mouth) where both the Rio Nosara and Rio Montana converge and empty into the Pacific Ocean. You will observe lots of wildlife in this beautiful and tranquil reserve. Here you can also discover hiking trails, stand up paddle boarding, and kayaking.

From our property, you can enter lush, natural jungle trails and walk alongside estuaries as you immerse yourself in giant trees, hanging vines, and tall grass. These trails include a private jungle path that leads you right to the beautiful and tranquil beach of Playa Pelada.


Throughout our three acre property, we offer many opportunities to read, write, relax and rest. Among these are hammocks that hang from most of the houses on the property and meditation benches, which can be found around the pavilion and in the jungle surrounding the guest quarters.
