with Asami Martens in San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua
5 nights in San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua
Sat Mar 25 - Thu Mar 30, 2017
Daily practice gazing at the Pacific Ocean. Just steps away from the beach, Costa Dulce is located in a tropical dry forest shared with monkeys, sloths, turtles, lizards and more. It is your time to unwind and unplug yourself from your daily life. Give yourself a soulful treat to deepen your Yoga practice, but most importantly, relax and chill!
Practice energizing and creative Vinyasa Yoga in the morning and nourish your body, mind and soul with soothing Yin practice in the late afternoon. Each morning practice will help you strengthen and deepen your Asana practice followed by meditation. You will be introduced to advanced postures. These postures will be explained to you as a mini workshop style so you can debunk the myths of these big Asanas!
The Yin practice will be designed to tap into your inner emotions through imageries and affirmations. The practice helps you to free yourself from everyday stress. Release what is stuck in your heart and let go of your daily blockages you feel inside. And of course, prepare yourself for a good night’s sleep!
Advance your Yoga practice, make new friends, learn to surf... take a day trip to the city. Don't miss this opportunity to take a step forward in your Yoga journey.

Experiencing Costa Dulce with it's empty beach and amazing sunsets is really something you have to see to believe. With no other resorts or people around the days melt away and you are engulfed in complete tranquility and relaxation. It is an incredible feeling!
Costa Dulce’s yoga studio features stunning views and the soothing sounds of jungle and ocean. Monkey infused yoga sessions have been known to occur. Our 900 square foot rancho style yoga platform stands alone over-looking Escameca Nature Reserve and the beach. It also doubles as an excellent event center. WIth a large fully equipped kitchen and common area you can host dinners for up to 60 people and then dance the night away.
Includes daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
The location was spectacular! The staff at Costa Dulce were wonderful often going above and beyond. I enjoyed the Nicaraguan foods we were treated to for many of our meals. The activities offered were unique and so much fun! My only concern would be about organization/ communication of activity arrangements, whether regarding times, additional costs... Etc. Loved this trip, would do it again I. A heartbeat!!!
Great! Really lovely location and fun times in the sun!
Amazing, words are not enough to express the awesome experience!
Overall the trip was amazing. I had a great time.
The transportation to the hotel was easy to find and conveniently set up for us. Costa Dulce was not what I was expecting. I think I would have enjoyed it more if I had known what I was getting into, and would have packed very differently. It was more of a hostel on the ocean than a hotel. Small rooms with no locks, screen walls, and bugs everywhere. Some rooms had bathrooms, others you'd have to walk outside to get to the bathroom, and showers were shared by several rooms. No A/C and limited airflow in the rooms lead to hot and buggy nights. The meals were good, and what seemed to be authentic Nicaraguan food-very carb heavy and little protein. There was a super convenient 'honor bar' where you could get beer, wine, rum, or soda and charge it to your room. Massages were great, on site, and super cheap. Most of the activities were done by local contractors and very well done. Horseback riding was awesome. My group and ambassador was great, but have a few more creature comforts would have been appreciated.
My trip to Costa Dulce was incredible beyond words. From the location to the food, from the yoga classes to the energy of the city, everything was perfect. The location is beautiful and very rustic, the food was some of the best I've ever had--each meal was more delicious than the one before, and the yoga itself was absolutely amazing. Massages, surfing, and nature walks were wonderful too. Would recommend and definitely travel there again.
This trip exceeded my expectations in every way. Costa Dulce is a beautiful, peaceful place staffed with kind and caring people! Emma and Jess's yoga and meditation instruction was top-notch. We had a BLAST!
The retreat location was great, rustic, but that was to be expected. Food was fantastic, they were wonderful about accommodating dietary restrictions and the place was so relaxing.
My group and I loved Costa Dulce and the staff! The location was idyllic and I could not have asked for a better retreat venue and participants who joined.
Happy to have found this laid back resort. I would recommend this resort to anyone looking for a safe place to enjoy Nicaragua. The staff went over and beyond my expectations. Much to do or do nothing you will enjoy this place.
This trip was absolutely wonderful. The staff at the resort was so friendly, the food was delicious, and the location was something out of a fantasy.
This retreat was amazing! Costa Dulce is a one of a kind location with an amazing staff. Also the food every day was super fresh and health. We all looked forward to the smoothie of the day each morning!
We had an amazing time at Costa Dulce. The food and accommodations were excellent, and the staff were great. We so enjoyed the fact that it was an eco-resort and blended into the jungle and ocean surroundings. It was the perfect place to unplug, recharge, practice yoga, meditate and just relax. Definitely a special place!
The trip was amazing. Costa Dolce is a beautiful place, and the staff was great. I would recommend this place to anyone.
Absolutely incredible trip. Costa Dulce is even more stunning than the photos and a perfect location for a retreat. All of the staff and owners are super helpful, approachable, and a pleasure to interact with. The proximity to the beach, views from the rooms and the yoga shala are second to none. Costa Dulce sits on its own private beach (which is massive) and offers plenty to do - from swimming, surfing, paddleboarding in the lagoon, reading in a shady hammock, horseback riding, etc. The food was amazing and they managed to accomodate an extensive range of food allergies/preferences and offered healthy, fresh meals. I would give the trip 6 stars if I could.
Just one word: paradise. Thank you for an amazing trip!
had the best time in a gorgeous location, being so close to the ocean and isolated from everthing is the best feeling. The team there is very welcoming and attentive to every detail
Very nice location, closest thing to paradise. Staff, food and managers were great. Yoga classes with the very dedicated Asami were soooo cool and demanding at the same time. I can't see how a retreat could be better executed.
The trip was amazing. I signed up because Asami is a wonderful teacher, and the entire trip exceeded my expectations. The yoga was a great combination of meditation, flow and yin, learning new postures and doing affirmations with partners. Costa Dulce was very accommodating for the airport shuttle, dietary restrictions (the food was incredible!), and many different activities. It was just the right combination of high quality but laid back, activities to choose from but time to relax, nice rooms and bar/lounge, the waves and sunsets were beautiful. A couple we met there said they had stayed at other places in Nicaragua before Costa Dulce and there was simply no comparison. Thank you Asami, Kit and Tyson!
Costa dulce is off the beaten path and well worth the trek. Gorgeous beaches, quaint bungalows with amazing views, the food was fresh and healthy. Yoga with Cass and Caitlin was fun, relaxing and the views in the studio overlooking the ocean were like no other! Overall I had an amazing experience.
Yoga with Singer was awesome - daily restorative sessions to the sounds of the ocean and the wind through the jungle trees was truly unique. Costa Dulce beach was clean and secluded as advertised. Great place to unwind and just be a beach bum. Three meals a day were very filling and a nice variety each day! Would go back again.
This trip was the best trip of my entire life!! Seriously! It was 1000x more than I could have ever imagined or expected. Simply put... priceless. The location was stunning and pristine , so minority touched by humans and there was endless things to explore on a seemily small ish area. I could have stayed for 3 more weeks and still not have run out of things to do. Each morning I woke up and just thought to myself... everything is absolutely perfect right now and I have never felt happier. The staff was so genuinely kind and accommodating. I have never had the pleasure of such hospitality and feeling 100% at ease and stress free. My biggest "stress" each day was do I go down to the ocean for one last swim or shower off the salt and sand and transition into a cozy mellow night time. I saw so many animals I'd never thought I'd see in my life. Smiled and laughed enough to carry me through the rest of the cold weather back home, and made life long connections with others and got closer to myself. Life will never be the same... in a glorious way. <3 if if could replay a week of my life on repeat this would be it. Sat Nam and Namaste. - thoughts truly do become things
