Join Susan and Jess for a week of nurturing your SOUL in NATURE through the exploration of CONSCIOUS living, self-LOVE and a cOMmunity of THRIVERS.


Retreat to nature, the jungle and the beach. Join us for an intimate 7-day yoga and relaxation experience. Costa Dulce (the sweet coast in Spanish) is a lush full-service eco-retreat intertwined with nature. Costa Dulce bungalows and cabins were designed to be in harmony with nature and were individually built without the use of machinery. The local Papagayo winds will keep you cool without using electricity.


Located in a tropical dry forest half of the year and a jungle during the rainy season, you will share your exotic environment with monkeys, sloths, snakes, iguanas, turtles, and birds. Located on Playa Escameca Grande, Costa Dulce is truly immersed in nature. Costa Dulce is ideal for all travelers looking to enjoy good company in a relaxed, safe, and healthy environment. Dulce Cocina takes pride in serving you nourishing, delicious local food. Enjoy a seasonal menu served family style, to nurture a sense of communing together.
