When we imagine the idyllic wellness and yoga retreat, it is inevitable that the scene will include lush vegetation and a closeness to nature. This is Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge on the Golfo Dulce of Costa Rica. Not only is it nestled into the rainforest and the Piedras Blancas National Park, but it is also a retreat for healthy food, exercise, spa treatments, and opportunities to experience or expand your spirituality and creativity. Let´s see why Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge is the best wellness and yoga retreat in the Costa Rican rainforest.

Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge, a valued member of the Enchanting Hotels Collection of exclusive boutique hotels in the most beautiful corners of Costa Rica, is located on the shores of the idyllic Golfo Dulce, on the southern Pacific Ocean border, where the greens of nature are infinite, and biodiversity is epic. Palm-tree-lined beaches, a nature-lovers paradise, and a signature vibe put the Golfo Dulce in place on its own.  This beautiful retreat also has an on-site yoga and massage therapist all year round too!

Not only is Nicuesa right on the beach and offers its guests the opportunity to refresh and revive heart, body, and soul with wellness treatments, a yoga deck for daily classes, a sensorial-focused restaurant, and lush tropical gardens surrounding the sustainability-inspired cabins and main building.  This is a yoga and wellness retreat that inspires!


Wellness is inner and outer healing.

According to Thrive Global, the search for a vacation place to recharge, eat and live healthily and to fix new health and fitness goals in an experience where you “get both inner and outer healing” is becoming more and more popular for travelers.

Included in a number of best wellness retreats in Costa Rica, Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge is not only a beautiful property but also located in one of the most “close-to-nature” beach destinations in Costa Rica, where the serenity and yoga vibe set the scene for a relaxing vacation.  It is also a member of the exclusive Enchanting Hotels collection that showcases the best eco-luxury boutique hotels all around Costa Rica!

This means that Nicuesa not only has the perfect mix of amenities and ambiance for a vacation to relax and heal but it is also surrounded by possibilities to reach your goals when it comes to new experiences and new adventures in a healthy and balanced ambiance.

Nicuesa is Yoga by the beach.

One of Nicuesa`s specialties is yoga, whether you would like to join a daily class or be part of a yoga retreat.  The Yoga Deck is nestled into the lush tropical gardens overlooking Nicuesa Beach and the Golfo Dulce. It welcomes you to be part of the yoga energy that is so present in Nicuesa.   Whether you are a beginner or a teacher, Nicuesa is a beautiful place for yoga, meditation, and connection with other people and with your inner self, which is key to a wellness experience.

Spa treatments with views of the beach, the sound of the waves, and the freshness from the sea breezes are the perfect combination to immerse yourself in your massage and the specialized treatments the qualified therapists have prepared for you.

The range of massages and focused treatments look to stimulate, relax, and restore your body and spirit from the stress and rush of daily life.  Your vacation should be a time to escape the routine and the bad habits we tend to adopt; the therapeutic benefits of a massage will heal and revive especially when it is by the beach!

One-bedroom cabins are very private, tucked in the rainforest, and fashioned with luxury amenities.

Wellness is healthy food and drinks.

A state of vacation wellness includes the quality of the food and drink you have while relaxing.  One of the most delightful times of your stay at Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge is mealtime!  Whether it is breakfast, lunch or dinner, a healthy, hearty, and heavenly meal is as sure as spotting wildlife during your walks along the trails or tours around the Golfo Dulce.

Just as Nicuesa is focused on your well-being from a holistic perspective, the Restaurant is the fusion of fresh, locally grown fruits, vegetables, seafood, and other ingredients of the highest quality converted into creative and healthy dishes.  If the ingredient isn’t harvested on the property in the vegetable garden or the fruit orchid, it has been sourced from local farmers, fishermen, or stores.

This is casual dining and where you will perceive Costa Rica-inspired flavors with native touches to create a culinary experience that “nourish the body and enliven the senses.” Take a seat and enjoy the food, the ambiance, and the views of the gardens and the beach beyond.  It is part of the wellness experience.

Wellness is a Nicuesa specialty and a favorite place for visitors of all walks of life that unite in this beautiful place to connect with others and to focus quality time and practices to achieve the balance of body, mind, and soul.  Your time may include yoga, spa treatments, exploring the rainforest, walking along the pristine beach, inhaling the spectacular sunsets that light up the sky, or just in quiet contemplation with the beach as your backdrop.

Nicuesa is Wellness and looks forward to your visit! Come and refresh and relax in this breathtaking destination.  If you are interested in organizing a retreat and hosting it at Nicuesa, enjoying the Yoga Bliss Package, or being part of an upcoming yoga retreat, let Nicuesa know about your wishes.
