Renew and find your flow on our newest Costa Rica yoga retreat. Join us for a 5-night reset on the stunning Playa Langosta, on the northern Pacific Coast in Guanacaste. Unwind at a secluded beachfront sanctuary, about an hour’s drive from Liberia International Airport.
Nature balances and heals the life force in our bodies. It helps bring us back into a state of vibrancy and peace. When we connect to the natural rhythms of nature and practice yoga, we discover our own natural vitality and innate joy. Our Costa Rica yoga and wellness retreat is hosted at a luxury boutique hotel in the tranquil area of Playa Langosta, just south of Tamarindo. This Vajra Sol retreat includes ample time for pampering and relaxation, exploring the surrounding stunning beaches, or for the more active individual, partaking in surfing and other ocean activities.

Can I stay at the retreat hotel extra nights?

What is the payment and cancelation policy?
Full payment is due no later than September 30th. Should you need to cancel your reservation before this date you will receive a refund for payment made less the $500 deposit. The deposit may be transferred to another Vajra Sol retreat within one year for a cancelation made before the final due date. Should you need to cancel after the final payment date, for whatever reason we will not be able to provide a refund or credit unless a replacement is found. No refund or credit will be given for arriving late or departing a retreat early or for meals/activities in which one does not participate.
If force majeure (e.g. pandemic, natural disaster, government travel restrictions, etc.) causes a retreat to be canceled we will offer alternative dates to reschedule the retreat within one year. In this case, there is
no refund of payments when a retreat cannot be held due to causes beyond our control. If the traveler is unable to join at the rescheduled date, full or partial credit of their payment may be applicable towards another Vajra Sol retreat. This will be determined at the time as it depends on how far out it is from the retreat start date. In the unlikely event Vajra Sol needs to cancel a retreat for a non-force majeure reason, a full refund will be given.
We strongly advise to purchase travel insurance at the time of booking your retreat in the case of any unexpected events or changes to your plans before or during your trip.

“Beyond amazing….an enlightening journey in a magical place. Thank you Sandra Tedeschi for all you do. I loved my yoga and SUP retreat. Well done! Highly recommended.”
- Andrew, Laguna Beach, California
“Even before I left New York, she provided so many helpful tips. And once I got to the retreat I felt so safe and taken care of in every moment. Between surfing and yoga, we had a luxurious amount of downtime, .. I haven’t felt so calm and happy in years! Sandra brought in mindfulness elements to the yoga practice, including some awesome breathing exercises, which I loved. It was a week of “bliss”.”
- Haley, New York City
“This was an amazing retreat with a bunch of like-minded travelers. I have been on a few yoga retreats and this was my favorite. We were all solo travelers except for a mother/daughter pair. This was a relaxed retreat that gave you the freedom to do as much or a little as you wanted. .. I had a wonderful week to escape the east coast winter. ”
