Your life is about to be turned upside down, and you can thank us later. We’re taking it farther than Costa Rico’s typical sandy beaches and stunning rainforests- we’ll have an obstacle course surrounding our property, an insane pool, and a gazebo kitchen perfect for those smoothie filled mornings and cocktail filled nights. The spacious rooms each have an A/C for cooling down and of course there will be WiFi to get you that Instagram love (we’ll have a professional photographer on the trip too, so you know it’ll be fire).
We’ll hike, surf, race, workout, practice yoga, have pool parties...convinced yet? While watching sunsets worthy of “breaking the internet,” we’ll eat the delicious and locally sourced meals created by our own personal chef and partner SALUD. You’ll leave with 40 new friends that come from all over the world and stories that your friends won’t believe. This is how to vacation, this is how to train, and this is how to live!
March 18th ARRIVAL
Flight information coming soon. We recommend taking a puddle jumper to Nosara airport, otherwise we'll have one designated time to take the SYB bus from Liberia airport to our home in Nosara which is a 3 hour drive.
We'll get to know each other and our amazing location! Dinner is served at 9pm, dancing is rampant, and lights go low and the disco balls come out. Where this night takes you is your story, but this is just day 1.
March 19th A FULL SYB DAY
Get ready to experience SYB to it's fullest. We begin with wake up calls, more on this later, go straight into morning workouts, beach games, yoga cooldown, a dip in the ocean to clean up, and a hearty breakfast all before it's even 9am.
Then head to explore the surf town of Nosara, grab a green juice, talk to locals, head to the beach, get into surf lessons, spend a few hours getting wiped out, grab lunch, ride a golf cart and enjoy a cold beer laughing with friends all before it's even 4pm.
We head back to our compound, get into our yoga minds, watch the sunset as we practice and feel a deep connection to those who you haven't even spent 24 with yet.
This is also the night we head into town for dinner, bring your dancing shoes, or wait it's a beach town, shoes are not necessary!
March 20th MANGROVE TOUR
Similar to day 1, we mix it up with a few things to keep you on our feet. Then we head out for our tour down the river to see the wildness of Nosara.
We head to Whales Tail beach, this is the most beautiful beach you will ever go to... We'll enjoy drinks and watch the sunset here. We'll be having dinner at home and we've also got a surpise this night!
March 21th OBSTACLES & SURFING
We're taking on the obstacles today. Get ready to overcome challenges mentally and physcially as we get a full run through our properties obstacle course! We're also adding a few extra runs up our hill, this is the day to see your strongest self emerge.
This is the big day to get those action surf shots for your gram, we'll have a drone following you shred (or wipe out) on those waves.
We'll stick around towards sunset, have a few beers, and grab dinner with our sandy feet in our favorite local spot!
March 22nd WATERFALLS
We begin this day with a hike to the local waterfalls. On this hike you'll see howler monkeys, do some cliff jumping, and get a feel of the spiritualiy of Nosara.
Our workouts will be afternoon based, followed by the most beautiful and spiritual sunset yoga practice and an inner connection workshop.
We finish this last night with a bon fire, our SYB awards ceremony and lot's of fun surpises throughout the night!
March 23rd BACK TO REALITY
Everyone will be checking out at 9am, some earlier some later. We will have an SYB bus taking people to Liberia and another one taking people to the local Nosara airport. Until next time... or until we throw our next party because this friendship just started!

Can you handle it?
This is a tropical beach adventure, not a yoga retreat or luxury travel experience. But our property is very beautiful with very comfortable and clean rooms. As we're in the middle of the jungle you'll have to keep an eye out for bugs, tiny little scorpions, and spiders. As long as you keep the doors shut you should be good.
Almost everyday you can expect morning workouts, sunset yoga, obstacle course run throughs, and beach games. We'll be pairing that with big group dinners, nights out in town, and lots of dancing! You can always take it at your own pace, skip workouts or adventures and stay back at the house.
If you have an open mind and a sense of adventure we believe you can easily handle this advenure!
Yes, in fact that is recomended. We'd love you to be whoever you want on this adventure and bringing a friend could also bring old habits.
But we understand it is intimidating and hard because you feel like you don't know anyone... trust us, this is the way to go!

Where are we staying?
We are going to Rayos Del Sol in the Guanacaste Province of Costa Rica. They do not have an address so the best way to explain is it is located on the Nicoya Peninsula along the Pacific Coast, in between the towns of San Juanillo and Ostional on Route 160, just 10km north of Nosara. The property sits up on top of a hill overlooking the ocean and a 10 minute walk to the black sand beaches of the Ostional Wildlife Refuge.
We'll be doing some adventures throughout this trip that require a bit of self awareness of the surrounding area. Remember this is the jungle.
Dehydration is a common cause of feeling unwell. We require everyone to bring their own refillable water bottle and drink lots of water.
Avoid drinking too much alcohol. Of course you will want to enjoy a few beers and try some of the local rum around the first night, however don't make yourself a liability. Nobody wants to have to look after a drunk person. Tropical hangovers are a nightmare and you don't want to miss out on the day activities if you are trying to recover from the night before!
Your skin will burn easily in the tropics especially ya'll winter hybernating New Yorkers. Get the proper gear, and protection!
We know this is going to be a huge highlight for you. We have a long 3 year partnership with New York's SALUD cafe, who prepares every breakfast and most lunches and dinners. Not only that but the cocktails themselves are worthy of those $17 specialty drinks from NYC. Also don't worry vegetarians and vegans, we cater to ya'll as well.
