Ticket To Ride have teamed up with one of Europe’s best professional surfers; three times British Champion Alan Stokes and Yoga-guru Philly Lewis of Wild & Free Retreats, to offer a bespoke 10-day Costa Rican surf and yoga retreat.
Restore your mind, body and soul with sunrise and sunset yoga sessions, hit the perfect waves with Stokesy fuelled by wholesome classically Central American food, and soak up the tropical sun rays – positive vibes and Pura Vida lifestyle.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Your Costa Rica surf and yoga retreat will be spent nestled up in the palm trees lodging in wooden tree-house style cabanas in the grounds of the awesome Don Jons Surf Lodge. Surrounded by lush jungle and friendly Howler monkeys and just a short walk through the jungle to the super fun waves of Santa Teresa beach.
There will be a maximum of 3 guests per cabana, all of which are en-suite featuring a balcony, orthopedic mattresses, refrigerators in the rooms and daily cleaning service.
You will practice yoga with our expert yoga teacher Philly Lewis. Every morning meditation will be offered to guests, followed by an hour’s Vinyasa flow class to get you energized for your day ahead. If your a total beginner yogi then don’t worry, Philly will guide you through the basics allowing you to access as many poses as possible whilst working with your own body. By the end of the trip you’ll be flowing through your practice with ease.
After your morning yoga session, our professional surfer Alan Stokes will then take you to the beach to hit the waves! It doesn’t matter if your a total ripper or just a beginner starting out, Alan’s enthusiasm and experience will guarantee you a surf full of waves, fun and laughter.
Spend your daily free time as you choose, relax in the tree top hammocks with a good book, walk down to the beach to top up your tan, explore the surrounding areas, or enjoy a cerveza and some music with Don Jon in the bar area.
Every evening, you’ll be able to join Philly for a restorative yoga session to help heal the body and leave you in a blissful state ready for the next day in paradise, preparing you for your next surf and yoga day.
Costa Rica is a tiny country but it’s packed with ecological biodiversity, in fact it accounts for 6% of the entire earth’s biodiversity, so be sure to spend some time exploring the amazing Cabo Blanco reserve a short drive away. Other must do activities include our quad bike adventure days and horse riding along the beautiful Playa Carmen and Santa Teresa beaches at sunset.
