jungle dreams: COSTA RICA

Join Gabrielle Roberts for 5 days of yoga, adventure, and the beautiful jungle in Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, Costa Rica.  This will be a truly unforgettable experience with people from all over the world.



The Jungle Dreams Retreat 2023 will take place in the tropical jungle of Costa Rica's southern Caribbean coast and will be hosted by Gabrielle Roberts. 


This retreat is an ideal place to disconnect from daily responsibilities and focus on personal wellness. There will be a day to completely unplug and disconnect from all things, really focusing on you.

There is no yoga experience needed to attend.  Over these 5 days we will explore various styles of practice.

The Sonora Carribean Jungle is located in Playa Negra, a very beautiful beach, much less crowded than others that we can find in the Costa Rican Caribbean, surrounded by powerful nature that gradually turns into jungle, embraced by hundred-year-old trees, colorful flowers and the sound of animals. In a land divided by a stream, a beautiful place and with the comfort of staying in a place surrounded by the silence of the jungle for a relaxing vacation.

It was created by Italian designers, elegant interior decorations, the use of fine linen and cotton fabrics in soft colors and warm touches of Caribbean wood.  The food served is made by select organic raw materials from the area, additionally, the chef works with local eco-sustainable companies and the search for tasty and healthy dishes and ingredients.
