We love it here so much we are coming back! here's why..

We were here in 2017 and had THE BEST time!! They have an Indoor and an Outdoor Yoga Shala. Both have sliding doors or windows to make the space more open and to get a good breeze running through if desired. Both Spaces are large enough to accommodate 40 mats. Donald the chef blew our minds daily with his creative healthy cuisine, the chalets were beyond beautiful, there were beaches in every direction. We even managed to hit up a new one each day. The hosts are knowledgable about where to go and what to do. 


Quiet and beautiful, existing in harmony with nature is the El Sabanero Eco-Lodge.

This is as close to nature as you can come! Be prepared to immerse yourself in the beauty of your surroundings and welcome jungle visitors as the property has resident lizards, birds and howler monkeys.

Located on a hillside in Cañafistula near Tamarindo, the hotel overlooks the Cañafistula Valley with beautiful views from all chalets.

We are in the midst of 4 of the most popular and beautiful beaches in the area so our clients do not need to choose just one and have a variety to choose from. Playa Avellanas, Playa Negra, Playa Junquillal and Tamarindo are all just a few minutes drive away. (Beaches are not in walking distance.)

The Lodge: El Sabanero Eco Lodge was built in 2004 using all local material. A private escape cloaked in serenity and embraced by natural beauty, a unique place for those with a passion for authentic experiences.

The Yoga

Join Shauna Lewis for optional yoga at sunrise and sunset. These classes will be multi styled yoga. Shauna has been teaching yoga for 6 years and is trained in styles of yoga from fitness based to restorative. The theme of this retreat is to reset our souls! Inspire our hearts to awaken and lead us into our true passions.  Come with the body you have and lets have some fun! 

Other shennanigans 

Tours like zip lining, horseback riding, snorkeling, sunset cruise tours, surfing, Buena Vista Mega Combo, rafting tours, turtle nesting (November to January only) and many more can be arranged by hotel staff during your stay. Last time we all rented a car together and shared it including expenses, it was great! .

We will also have the opportunity to participate in an OPTIONAL sacred plant medicine healing ceremony. This can be a hugely transformative experience.

Cost would be an additional $100 UDS /person with discounts if there are over 5 participants. We will have a big discussion about this as a group. If you have questions about this specific aspect of the trip, please email Shauna directly at
