COSTA RICA is quite simply one of the most beautiful countries on the planet. Sometimes referred to as the Switzerland of Central America because of its comfortable lifestyle, peaceful democracy and overwhelming natural beauty.
Costa Rica has beach breaks, point breaks, lefts and rights, reefs and river mouths, warm water and year-round waves making it the perfect surfing destination. For the most part, the Pacific coast has bigger swells and better waves during the latter part of the rainy season, but the Caribbean cranks from November to May. Basically though there is a wave somewhere waiting to be surfed at any time of the year!
Urban Recovery is offering you an exotic and luxurious surf and yoga based retreat in Playa Santa Teresa, a small, rustic, chic town on the Nicoya Peninsular. The spot offers many exceptional beach breaks which are hollow and consistent, especially at lower tides.
In addition to the world class waves Santa Teresa boasts an incredible collection of spiritual minds and souls from all over the world. They have all been drawn to this special place because of the magic and healing power of it's fertile land and the energising power of the pacific ocean. Urban Recovery has recruited a number of these inspirational people to deliver incredible massage and relaxation therapies including: Sports Massage, Reiki, Acupuncture, and Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Accommodation options on these retreats include; award winning boutique hotels set amongst beautiful tropical plants and wildlife, a floating designer tree house and incredible private beach fronted villas.
Food on our retreats will be prepared by our incredibly knowledgeable and skilled resident raw food expert. All the ingredients used to create our simple, tasty and nutritious dishes are certified organic, locally sourced and most importantly packed full of life!
