Your life for the next 8 days will be turned upside down (in the most amazing way possible) - we have the beach, rain forest and an obstacle course surrounding our property, a pool and gazebo kitchen centered for all our late nights and early morning coffees. The beautiful spacious rooms each have A/C for cool off time and plenty of WiFi to get you the Instagram love from daily roundups from our personal photographer following you around your most epic days.

We will hike, surf, race, workout, practice yoga, have pool parties, eat delicious fresh locally sourced meals created by own personal chef and partner SALUD, watch sunsets that will give you life, and of course we will all leave with 40 best new friends that come from all over the world. This is how to vacation, this is how to train, and this is how to live!

From our 2018 Nosara adventure

ITINERARY

 

December 26th ARRIVAL


Flights seem to be very expensive for this trip so we are recommending you fly to San Jose then take a smaller plane to Nosara Airport. We recommend FlySansa https://booknow.flysansa.com/search This is much cheaper than originally flying to Liberia Airport. Although we will still be providing transportation still from Liberia airport December 26th and back January 2. Note this is almost a 3 hour drive. If you have any questions please email us at dude@surfyogabeer.com Once there we can arrange pick up times.

Today we'll get to know each other and our amazing location!

December 27th 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.

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.

December 28th 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.

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!

December 29th OBSTACLES


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.

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!

December 30th SURF'S UP


Similar to day 1, mixing up our workouts and gearing towards a full day of surfing in Nosara! 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!

December 31st OPTIONAL DAY


This is either a chill on Nosara beach and surf day or an optional adventure day. We have options for horseback riding, atv tour, fishing adventures, wildlife santuary visit, or grocery shopping with our food partner SALUD.

Tonight we party at a beautiful restuarants over looking the beach and local fireworks on the waterfront. Get ready to boogie!!!

January 1st WATERFALLS


We begin this day with a hangover, but it's ok because then we hit 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!

January 2nd BACK TO REALITY

ACCOMODATIONS

With enough space for 45 of us. this 25 acre property has 20 spacious and unique rooms with A/C, private bathrooms, patios and stunning ocean views. The main lounge area has WiFi, our own restaurant, bar, swimming pool and sunset viewing deck. There are outdoor gym & yoga facilities, several hiking trails available for use and the Pacific Ocean is just a short walk down manicured paths.

DETAILS

 

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!

Going Alone

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!

Flights

Flights seem to be very expensive for this trip so we are recommending you fly to San Jose then take a smaller plane to Nosara Airport. We recommend FlySansa https://booknow.flysansa.com/search This is much cheaper than originally flying to Liberia Airport. Although we will still be providing transportation from Liberia airport December 26th and back January 2. Note this is almost a 3 hour drive. If you have any questions please email us at dude@surfyogabeer.com Once there we can arrange pick up times.

Registration + Payment

  • Deposit: Your $500 deposit is used to secure your spot and goes toward your full payment. Your deposit is non-refundable or transferable.
  • The remaining balance is divided into three additional payments with the full payment due 30 days prior to the adventure's start date.
  • Trip credit (less deposit) may be transferred towards a future trip (within 12 months) up to 30 days prior to the start of the trip.
  • Please note that there are absolutely no refunds or deposit transfers for cancellations within 30 days of the trip. We strongly encourage all participants to purchase trip insurance just to be safe.

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.

Self Care

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!

Food

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.

Safety and Security in the Region

There has been no incidents that we've heard of or come across that would have us concerned. You are safe in the area and very safe if you stay with us.

Sleeping Arrangements

We'll assign you to a room and roomate according to your pretrip form. Please let us know if there are any special requests.

Bathroom Situation

DO NOT FLUSH ANY PRODUCTS, INDCLUDING PAPER, DOWN THE TOILETS.

This is a third world country and the sewage is not the same as the US. There are waste baskets next to bathrooms, please use those.
