Here at the Costa Rica Yoga Spa we have a wide variety of activities that we offer for you to partake in during your stay. Scroll down through this page and take a look at some of the activities we not only offer, but suggest doing as well.
There is something for everyone!
Canopy Tour (Zip-Line)
Our number one activity choice! This zip-line is the highest, safest canopy tour in Costa Rica and is the longest in the world. Gliding above the lush jungle canopy, enjoy a refreshing dip in a natural waterfall pool, and piece together an unforgettable experience.
Set out for an adventure tour on the Rio Montana and see the endless wildlife and thriving nature. The sights and sounds of the estuary and mangrove forests will provide a continuously captivating experience all around.
Saddle up and explore Nosara atop one of our many local and beautiful horses. This is an incredible way to take in the Costa Rican countryside and beaches. Make your dream of horseback riding on the beach come true!
Magical Mystery Tour
As you embark on your journey you will be prepared for a day in the most hidden magical locations of the Nosara region. You certainly will not find a tour like this in any guidebook.
Ostional Turtle Tour
This is a guided tour of the Ostional National Wildlife Refuge, one of the world’s most significant nesting sites for Olive Ridley sea turtles. Witness an arrivada (arrival), when all of the adults have traveled thousands of miles back to the same exact place that they were born to lay their eggs. Shortly after, and maybe in accordance with the timing of your trip, the baby sea turtles will hatch and make their way towards the ocean to begin their journey; both of these events are unbelievable natural spectacles. This tour is not to be missed!
Learn to surf with the CRYS crew— lessons begin with safety and yoga in the Rancho and progress to Playa Guiones, one of the world’s best surf beaches.
Stand Up Paddleboard
Enjoy the world’s fastest growing sport by way of river or ocean with professional naturalist guides.
Wave Hunter Tour
Check out Ostional, Marbella, or Camoronal. These breaks are perfect for surfers seeking to ride secluded and more advanced waves. The journey includes many river crossings as well as mountain and ocean vistas. Sure to please more than just the surfers.
* Must be intermediate level or higher for surfing.
We can also arrange ATV's for you to explore on your own time and free will. Guides available upon request.
Learn the authentic rhythm and finesse of several different forms of Salsa dancing. Our instructor is very enthusiastic and patient as he guides each person one by one through the steps and movements of the dance.
* Two person minimum
Visit the Sibu Sanctuary where injured or orphaned animals are rehabilitated for release. This two hour heartwarming tour aids the sanctuary in their goal to educate and encourage respect for animals and their habitat. CRYS highly recommends this tour and provides complementary transportation.
*Please note, you must be in the country 3 days prior to visiting the sanctuary.
Bio Reserve Hike
Explore the Reserva Biologica; a private nature reserve situated along the Rio Nosara. Start this hike with a breathtaking view of the boca (river mouth) and tour the 35 hectares/90 acres of land that provides the home for unique species of plants, mangroves, and other wildlife.
This guided tour leads you through mild terrain to hidden treasures within the jungle. Explore an array of waterfalls and natural pools while you get to know our local flora and fauna.
If you are a fan of fishing let us know! Choose from deep sea, close shore, or river fishing and simply inform us, we will make the rest happen for you. The rich waters here contain abundant numbers and varieties of wildlife.
Private Yoga or Pilates Sessions
Spend some one on one time with one of our talented resident yoga teachers. We can work with you to schedule a private session in our yoga pavilion, the beach, or elsewhere. Work on asanas, alignment, breathing techniques, or simple meditations, and transform yourself to employ the Pura Vida way.
One daily yoga class is included in the cost of stay, 4 people maximum.
Fly in a Gyrocopter!
Get an unparalleled bird’s eye view of the beaches, mountains, valleys, and rivers of Guanacaste. This really gives you the full perspective of the area.
We can also arrange any of the above activities for group members personally if you are hosting a retreat. We're used to serving groups so we understand that planning is essential, even if you plan to do absolutely nothing! We create all kinds of individualized adventures, both big and small, by teaming up with our best partners to entertain, guide, and challenge (if desired of course) our guests.
