You are responsible for arranging, booking and paying for your flights to and from Managua airport in Nicaragua.

Major international airlines run daily connections into Nicaragua’s Managua international Airport (MGA), including American Airlines, Delta, Continental, United, Copa, Taca and Spirit.

Booking sooner rather than later for long haul flights is generally recommended to get the best deal available.

The retreat location

Costa Dulce is located just 30 minutes south of San Juan Del Sur, just North of Playa Coco and South of Playa Yankee. Not only does our beach have great surf breaks but Playa Yankee is a destination for many surfers in the area. You will have the waves to yourself on our restricted access (effectively private) beach!

Costa Dulce is set within the pristine jungle and the beaches of the Southern Pacific coastline of Nicaragua. Natural living meets rustic luxury for a truly inspiring and unique retreat. Costa Dulce has grown organically whilst committed to a grass roots approach to a more sustainable future; improving the social, economic and environmental well being of the surrounding communities.



When you close your eyes and picture yourself practicing yoga, you will probably find yourself in a setting very similar to the yoga studio at Costa Dulce. With the sound of the waves as your soundtrack, and mother ocean as a back drop, you will have no trouble finding yogic peace.

The 900 square foot studio, fully equipped, is composed of a tropical hardwood platform with comfortable space for up to 24 yogis. The studio features an open air design facing the ocean, to assure a panoramic view and perfect climate during your practice. There is also 300 square foot. Rancho (covered platform) on the point - great for meditations sessions and even more yoga.

Outside the studio entrance there is a bathroom with 2 tropical bamboo shower stalls to rinse off after your practice. Whether stretching, flowing, or meditating, enjoy and absorb the energy from this spectacular setting….a yogi’s dream!


(This retreat is not for complete beginners who have never practiced any yoga before).

Each day will offer 4 hrs of yoga; a morning and afternoon session of 2hrs each. You will be in the safe hands of Toni Roberts and Stewart Heffernan, both highly experienced yoga teachers, best friends and each other’s inspiration.



Throughout the week’s retreat together we will explore different themes that draw on the ancient principles of yoga and combine with a contemporary viewpoint and understanding. This will be a unique experience for all attending whether you are a beginner to yoga or someone with more yoga experience behind you.

For yoga teachers attending the retreat, you will be able to gain 9 CPD points within the 28hrs offered. We will register the CPD hours with Yoga Alliance Professionals UK. You will just need to bring your CPD sheets with you for us to sign/authorise. Possible themes are as follows:

  • Yoga Therapy for Stress, Anxiety, & Depression

  • Shakti & Shiva - The Power of Backbends

  • The 7 Chakra System

  • Hands on Assists

  • Embodied Yoga History & Philosophy

  • Restore & Renew

  • Prana Vayus & Subtle Body Anatomy

  • How to build an intuitive practice

  • Breathing for Optimal Health

The retreat accommodation

Costa Dulce started with the beach house; an open air design which is now an integral part of the ethos. Boundaries between indoors and outdoors blur when sliding walls open onto your lounge and bedrooms to large decks overlooking the beach.

Rooms will be allocated on a ‘first come first serve basis’ with prices based on two sharing per room/accommodation. If you are attending on your own, we will put you together with someone else to share.

It is possible if you’re attending as a triple to share a triple accommodation, although this is limited to availability. There are four available triple shares.

There is one quad available. Prices are based on 2 x 2 sharing.

There are two single accommodations available which have double beds, so can be used for couples attending. There is a single supplement payable. Couples sharing will pay double sharing rate.

All rooms except the singles are priced on two people sharing regardless of the size.






Local, fresh, organic, nutritious food

Below the yoga studio there is a large fully equipped kitchen and a family style dining area that seats up to 25 and includes a beautiful front porch to absorb the amazing ocean view.

Your retreat includes four delicious, fresh, healthy meals per day, unlimited coffee, tea & filtered water, all locally sourced and carefully selected. Don’t forget the Free coconuts!

Dinner will be provided on 25/11/17, the day day of arrival & check-in and breakfast on 03/12/17 the day of check out, transfer departure time permitting.

Please inform us of any food allergies in advance of arriving to Costa Dulce. We can accommodate vegetarian and vegan diets.

(Extra snacks, juices, beer etc can be purchased from the Cantina, open all day).



Airport transfers

We will arrange one transfer time from Managua airport to the venue; Costa Dulce on 25/11/17 and one transfer time to Managua from the venue; Costa Dulce on 3/12/17. The times will be arranged nearer the time, but we estimate the transfer time from Managua no later than 5.30pm on 25/11/17.


Unfortunately it is not possible for us to accommodate everyone’s individual arrival and departure times. If the transfer times arranged are not suitable or to your liking then you will be able to arrange individual transfers on your arrival at the venue and at your own expense.
