The spacious lodges are built from local teak and include queen size beds, air conditioning, and a large deck to relax in a rocking chair. The pool has a beautiful view of the valley and you can enjoy the bar that is right beside it.

There are two stunning outdoor shalas where you practice yoga with the most amazing views. Each lodge has everything you need plus a porch with your own hammock to relax in and read a book or just simply take a nap. You can hear and see local species of animals on their natural environment and find peace and serenity in nature.


Sonja has been traveling to find the most perfect spot to host her own retreat, and as soon as she arrived to El Sabanero, she knew that she found it!

Imagine yourself waking up in the jungle and breathing in the healthy pure air first thing in the morning, watching the monkeys climb on the trees - you can actually see them from some porches!

She will put all her knowledge that she was gathering since a few years in the fields of yoga and meditation together, and create an unforgettable experience for you.

You will try different kinds of yoga, so you can find out which style is your style. There will be a bit more challenging practice in the morning so you can rise and shine and carry that yoga glow within you the whole day.

In the evening, you will practice a more gentle practice to really calm your nervous system, releasing tensions in your bodies and feeling what is inside of you.

Most importantly, with a gentle practice, you are preparing for a good night's sleep to wake up every day well rested. Filling you up with all the self care and self love because you deserve it.

There will be different meditations in the morning or evenings and very special events. You will have a sacred cacao ceremony together, sharing circles, and a sound journey to open your hearts and support you on your individual journey within.

Sonja lived with the staff for one month herself. Everybody is warm-hearted, super friendly, and will do the very best they can to make you feel comfortable.

December is the best time to travel to Costa Rica. The rain stopped and you will experience the lush greens of the jungle. Costa Rica is showing itself from its best side!
