Our two-story 36 x 33 foot yoga deck is one of the biggest and best around – located at the beach under the rainforest canopy and overlooks the crystal blue waters of the “Golfo Dulce” – the ideal place for a unique yoga experience.
Massages and Spa
The Encanta la Vida Spa located at the yoga pavilion was especially designed for yoga retreats. The lower level has two separate areas where you can enjoy a spa treatment, acupuncture or a relaxing and therapeutic massage by one of our professional masseurs.
Yoga and Food
We understand that yoga groups enjoy a healthy and sometimes very specific diet, so we have developed a menu with something for every taste and dietary need. Our chef makes both local Costa Rican dishes as well as recipes with an international flare. We often have fresh fish and all of our fruits and vegetables are locally grown.
Location is key
What makes Encanta La Vida the best place for a yoga retreat is not only the quality of service we provide or the beautiful lodge itself but our great location. Our lodge is nestled between the mountains and shore of Cabo Matapalo where the secondary forest meets the primary forest. Matapalo is known as the epicenter for flora and fauna in the area. Four species of monkeys, toucans and scarlet macaws are seen from our lodge and yoga deck regularly. We are the only lodge at the beach in Matapalo, considered by many as the most exclusive area on the Osa. We are also fortunate to have the best beaches for swimming, sunbathing and surfing are right in front of our property!
Not only for Yoga
There are many activities to keep yourself entertained including taking one of the many tours offered in the area. Rappel down waterfalls, Zip-line through the rainforest or take other guided tours. See our tours page for more information. Our location is ideal for yoga retreats that would like to include surfing as part of the daily activities. The surf break Pan Dulce is located in front of the yoga deck and is a gentle right point, great for surfers of all levels. Lesson packages can be arranged and the lodge has a variety of boards available for rent.
