The Osa is the last untouched area of Costa Rica. The last truly wild, far out, off the beaten path corner of this beautiful country. Located just north of the Panama border, the Osa is home to Corcovado National Park, dubbed the most biologically intense place on earth. With the rainforest on one side and the vast ocean on the other, the country’s largest population of scarlet macaws floating above, the Osa is truly a unique, inspiring and life changing place.
Boca Sombrero will be our home for this adventure, serving up comfortable rooms, delicious/healthy food, a swimming pool and a yoga studio just yards away from the ocean. It’s so beautiful, once we get there, we never want to leave. With daily yoga, surfing, and amazing excursions, our adventure into the wild side of Costa Rica will be as balanced as a rainforest’s eco-system. Optional activities include massages, epic tree climb, marine preserve, horseback riding and waterfall and so much more.
To get here, simply fly into San Jose, Costa Rica and take a short flight on Nature Air or Sansa to Puerto Jimenez where we’ll pick you up! We suggest booking your local flights in advance to give you the most options available.

Empowered. A word I live by.
All of us have the ability to overcome things in our lives. Defining moments in our “story” give us a choice, the courage to either become our truth, or live in a lie.
Before yoga came into my life, I was a young mother, strapped to a corporate job, with laundry list full of guilt, shame and baggage from a turbulent youth. Fitness goals led me to yoga, and yes, I became physically strong, but slowly I began to notice changes occurring in my actual nature. The baggage from my past started to slowly get stripped away. I began to realize who I was deep down, and deep inside beauty started to unfold where there was once only pain.
My past does not define me, but I know the challenges I have been blessed with in this life are so I can empower others with the knowledge that all we have to do is look inside for the answers.
That is what yoga does for you. It strips away what is not real, replaces it with Love, and gives you back what you truly are at your core, your spirit. And it’s never too late to start.
Boca Sombrero is an exclusive ocean front paradise embedded in the amazing rainforest settings of Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula.
This center specializes in group events that usually combine Yoga practice with surfing perfect waves in the lush tropical setting of our beach. Our wide range of accommodations allows you to choose one of our luxurious beach front villas or one of our more modestly priced thatch roof tent platforms.
We also offer a wide variety of activities that will give you the opportunity to explore the rugged beauty of this unique part of Central America while kayaking, climbing trees, rappelling down waterfalls, or simply zip-lining through the forest canopy.
Of course you are also welcome just to relax by the pool, have a spa day, a massage, an acupuncture or one of the many other treatments offered by the therapists of our small cosmopolitan local community.
Our highly trained chefs and kitchen staff provide an exotic blend of delicious and healthy cuisine that is sourced from local farmers.
