About the place

Puerto Viejo de Talamanca offers many conveniences as an up-and-coming beach town that was once very off the beaten path. Explore 14 kilometres of gorgeous and pristine Caribbean beaches, hike waterfalls, horseback ride, surf or spot the local wildlife on your days off. This place is a nature lovers dream! The retreat centre is located close enough to town to walk to all conveniences, yet tucked away in a quiet jungle corner to support a deep and sacred study. OM at Cashew Hill The town of Puerto Viejo’s 1st and original fully functioning Yoga Studio & Health Center. Est. 2008. NOW a full Retreat and Yoga Teacher Training Center, too! Many of the activities of Caribbean Side Costa Rica involve much physical movement. Treat yourself to a massage after that long day surfing, snorkelling, biking or kayaking (or after a long night of dancing to salsa and reggae beats). Get your energies balanced and tune back in with yourself with some Reiki, Massage, Meditation or Yoga after too much sun and sand. Or just come in to maintain that beloved state of Bliss which you are sure to find within the jungle wonderland of Caribbean Costa Rica. Namaste. Cashew Hill Jungle Lodges are within walking distance of all of the towns amenities but nestled away in the safe haven of the jungle for the Sacred study of Yoga.

Food

A mouth-watering vegetarian breakfast and lunch are served daily. Gluten-free and vegan options are available by special request. As much of the food as possible is sourced from on-site organic gardens and locally from the community. This is truly a labour of love that can be seen...and tasted with each serving! Often one of the HIGHLIGHTS of many tired students' experience!

Things to do

Holistic treatments

Spa available on site for bookings in your free time.

Other activities

Jungle Life is not for everyone! We want a near-to-nature experience in order to sink into an appreciation of earth's natural cycles. We live in peace with all creatures here...including the less-desired ones! If this doesn't seem like your cup of tea, a luxury resort may be more your style. We are a jungle lodge, permaculture project and located in a surf town. Also, when the rain comes down in the rainforest (it has a tendency to do that!) it comes down HARD! Temperatures can be much cooler than during the daytime. Bring warmer layers for any rainy nights.

    Avani and her team created a truly unique and incredible experience for the 200 hour YTT program. It is clear that each team member has a real passion for yoga and for spreading the essence of what it means to be a yoga teacher. Every detail (from the organic vegetarian food to the curriculum to the extra "surprise" activities) was practically flawless. I had initially attended this program to further my own personal practice. But the passion and love with which I was presented the information, I was inspired to become a teacher myself (which is what I am doing today!). I recommend this program to anyone who is looking for the best of the best as far as a yoga teacher training program and is curious about what it is to live a yogic lifestyle. From Facebook

Avani has an amazing way of bringing the right people together- the staff and each member of the training program are special in their own way and make for an amazing community. My forever Caribe Kula that I am beyond thankful for. A once in a lifetime, magical experience. You will learn how to be a yoga teacher and so so so much more. <3 From Facebook

    I am completely in awe at the attention to detail and students needs that the staff gave in my YTT. Every aspect of the training was carefully pieced together to create a space of acceptance and self-exploration. Everything from the food, to the beds, to the fresh flowers in the Shala were mindfully placed. This YTT has something to offer for everyone; whether you aspire to teach or deepen your practice. If you decide to take this training upon yourself be open to view of yourself in a new light. This YTT prepares you to deal with stressful student situations or to endure personal mental conflict. You will leave this training feeling empowered to lead your first class, find continuing education, and/or deepen your practice. This training balances out Eastern and Western philosophy. Make sure that you are open to learning Eastern philosophy. Find your inner teacher and step into your new self through a training with Caribe Yoga Academy. From Caribe Yoga Academy Facebook Page

    I did my 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training here at Caribe Yoga Academy. It was a life changing experience for me. It is an amazing and beautiful place to stay with a super friendly atmosphere. They serve delicious food straight from the garden and have an awesome teaching infrastructure with outstanding teachers. All this and its located in one of the most beautiful natural locations in the world with pristine beaches, monkeys, sloths, and beautiful birds all around. If you do any training here you will not be dissapointed! From Caribe Yoga Academy Facebook Page

    I've been advocating for Avani and the Caribe Yoga Academy since the moment I began my YTT. The whole program went above and beyond my expectations. The course materials, lessons and teachings were extremely well organized and carefully taught, and Avani's patience, compassion and understanding throughout the journey is something I will remember for the rest of my life. from Yoga Alliance Reviews
