Flora da Rocha is a modern apartment complex just a short walk from Praia da Rocha beach and the town of Portimão. Each apartment has a private bathroom, comfy bed, kitchen, and terrace. Enjoy the amenities of the property, including tennis courts, a game room, and outdoor swimming pools. 

Cerro Verde retreat centre is a smaller, more intimate setting than some other retreats in Costa Rica and by design. SoCal Wellness Retreats thinks it's important to create a safe and inviting space for guests to feel more like they're at home than on a vacation.

Program

Workshops will give guests a deeper understanding of how yoga, meditation, and mantra can bring peace and harmony to all facets of their life. Come experience this retreat with the founder of SoCal Wellness Retreats and creator of Q Yoga, John Quirk!

Is prior yoga experience necessary to attend?
Not at all, just a willingness to try. SoCal Wellness Retreats' yoga instructors always offer variations to ensure you’re being challenged based on your individual level of experience. Each year there are several participants who take their first yoga class in our Costa Rican paradise.

Excursions
Include excursions (all excursions are with a local guide, not the places you find on TripAdvisor):

  • Waterfall tour
  • River rafting tour
  • Volcano tour
  • Cultural immersion tour
  • Surf lesson

Food
It’s no secret, food an integral part of our retreat offerings. Guests feel nourished and inspired by how making better food choices can lead to feeling so much better. Plant based eating doesn’t have to be boring, in fact it is incredibly delicious! Our food workshops are always a huge hit, learn how to put together amazing plant based meals and make better food choices for YOUR body. 

We love the blend of influences that Costa Rican food offers. With influences from Spain, Jamaica and Caribbean cuisine, this unique environment and its abundance of amazing local produce is a recipe for food bliss. Our private chefs carefully select menus that will fill you up without slowing you down.
