The plan is buy your flight to arrive into Liberia Airport (LIR), Costa Rica on Tuesday January 23 before 1pm, SYB captain Mantas will round everyone up and on an SYB bus we will make our 2 hour drive to the SYB Villas! This bus ride will be everything you had hoped for, we'll play games, have fitness pit stops, and of course be best friends with a group of likeminded awesome people before we even get to our home. 

Obstacle Course Training! This is a special adventure that will have an optional intense training session to learn how to overcome walls, ropes, mud rivers, monkeys and hang-overs - basically functional fitness.

Surf! Our beach is a short walk so we will be making our way there often, usually for sunset sessions. Expect wipe-outs, soar shoulders from paddling and red noses. If you're coming from NYC, simply keeping your feet in the sand might even be enough of a satisfaction.

Yoga! This is a perfect introduction to the benefits of a yoga practice, especially since we will be taking our bodies through such rigorius fitness activities. 

Food! Four dinners will be provided by our very own private chef and the other two we'll enjoy out at the local restaurants. Eddie Larios is the owner of a Latin Restaurant in SoHo called Salud, he is curating the food himself for every meal.

Beer! And of course, there will be partying.  Staying true to our 10 commandments, our days are a cycle of detox-to-retox because hell, we're on VACATION.  We're here to have a damn good time, not take ourselves too seriously, and leave feeling renewed in body AND spirit.

Pura Vida is a saying in Costa Rica that means a lot of things awesome and chill, you'll get those native vibes really quickly and see what this place and SYB is all about!

OUR ACCOMMODATIONS IN COSTA RICA:



Some Questions You Probably Have:

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.

How do I get there? Are there flights?

#sybuber

Do people go solo?

Yes, in fact that is recomended. But we understand it is intimidating and hard because you feel like you don't know anyone, but trust us - it is worth it. #firststepisthehardest

Who normally goes?

There is no average person, every trip is it's own magical group. #allnewfriends

Do I have to do the Digital Detox? Is there wifi?

No, we have wifi and if you need to work or Instagram go for it. #offthegrid

What is the preferred currency in Costa Rica? And how much should I bring?

For the most part, everyone accepts American money. But if want to, no need to exchange more than $300 US Dollars. If you love to buy souvenirs many places have ATM’s and may even take credit cards. If you go into banks with your passport, you can also use your bank debit cards to withdraw larger sums of cash than the limited daily withdrawal amounts the ATMs allow

Can I just sit back and unwind the whole time?

Yep, no questions asked, this is your trip. Although we make things really fun so just saying you might be seduced. #playtime

How soon does it fill up, and how does the waitlist work?

We fill up very quickly because of our limited amount of beds, the sooner you can book the better. The waitlist works on first come first serve. Once we contact you off the waitlist you haev 48 hours to book your spot otherwise we move on to the next person on the list.

Is there a caretaker and house keeping?

Yes, we have 4 gaurds 24/7 on the property. This is a very safe place for even without them. House keeping will also keep your room tidy.

Are the power outlets the same in Costa Rica as in the United States?

Costa Rica has the same voltage and frequency – 110V 60Hz - and uses the same plug and outlet designs as in the U.S. so you don't need an adapter or converter.

Do I need to bring a towel or yoga mat?

Yes if you want something softer for sunset yoga, but you can figure things out if you don't... Also you should purchase an SYB towel, thats prolly the coolest thing you can bring. Try to go light on the packing list, people end up wearing just a few articles of clothing the whole week. Oh ya and running shoes and bathing suit would be a good idea too.

What’s up with theft

Be safe and you won’t be sorry. Crime is Costa Rica is usually of the petty theft variety, typified by small time thieves seeking cash or things they can readily turn into cash electronics like laptops, iPhones and cameras. Don’t flaunt jewelry or cash and keep your valuables secured and locked up in the hidden storage bodegas and mini-safes we provide in each room when you are not using them. Do not take anything of value down to the beach unless it is tightly attended. Also don’t worry we are always sticking with our SYB group so we will all keep an eye out for these sorts of things.

MEALS BY SALUD?

Owner and SYB partner Eddie Larios has created the perfect menu of clean delicious eating, energizing foods, and local specials. Don't believe us of his talent? Go visit him at one of his two cafes in NYC, SALUD NYC! #saludnyc

BOOTYCAMP and OBSTACLE COURSE TRAINING?

Say hello to your very own badass celebrity trainer MARK REBIERO. He was recently on TV on the obstacle course race TV show Amarican Ninja Warrior, this guy knows what he is doing, let him teach you his ways! #sybootycamp

MEDITATION BY KINGSLEY?

When Kingsley was injured she was left to work out her mind. She turned the brain into a muscle that you can strengthen like any other in your body. Stronger in the mind is stronger in the body. #sybehere
