Costa Rica Surf Camp and Yoga Retreat for Women
Be adventurous and transform yourself during a weeklong retreat at Pura Vida Adventures. Our intent is to rejuvenate and to empower the mind, body and spirit through surfing, SUP, and yoga – the “pura vida” way. Our retreats draw inspiration from the Costa Rican phrase “pura vida,” which, loosely translated means “enjoy life.” This spirit is infused into every aspect of our retreats. Pura Vida Adventures is about giving you a new experience and perhaps a new outlook on life.
“What a gift it was to share a week in your perfect paradise – warm water, spectacular waves and amazing women. “Pura Vida” is the real thing and you all have it!” ~ Mary

Our retreats are situated in the scenic village of Malpais on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. Expansive beaches and tropical rain forest surround Malpais, creating fascinating landscapes, stunning views and unforgettable sunsets. The area has been compared with Maui 50 years ago. From the moment that you arrive in Malpais, you’ll know that you have discovered a very special place. The gorgeous beaches are uncrowded, the ocean is warm, the locals are friendly, and there are monkeys swinging from the trees. You can find secret waterfalls with warm water pools surrounded by jungle canopy, and surf spots with no one there.
Barefoot luxury accommodations await you at our beachfront retreat, located in the heart of one of the most inspirational and breathtaking beaches in Costa Rica, Playa Carmen. Our resort is a well established and highly reviewed hotel that offers a truly one-of-a-kind vacation experience with its labyrinth of foot paths shrouded in tropical foliage spilling onto white sand beaches and blue ocean water. It’s the perfect place to reconnect with that powerful source of energy present inside each one of us. Explore the finer details of our accommodations.
Malpais is a surfer’s haven and provides easy, fun waves in which to learn. The surrounding area has it all… point, reef and beach breaks. Our hotel is located beachfront at Playa Carmen which offers gentle, long breaking waves perfect for all levels of surfers. With our surf van we can access the other beaches of Playa Santa Teresa in 5 minutes, and Playa Hermosa in 15 minutes along with several point-breaks in the area.
