It will come as no secret to most that Costa Rica is considered one of the world most beautiful countries with endless ocean views, pristine beaches, and lush green jungles. Over the past ten years though the focus of tourism in Costa Rica has taken a bit of change, not only are people coming for the views and wild life, they are also now coming to take advantage of Costa Rica’s organic laid back pace, or what foreigners affectionately call “Tico Time.” In fact Costa Rica has become a hub for those looking  for mediation and relaxation, to practice yoga and even learn to teach yoga.

Currently there are over 50 Yoga retreats through out Costa Rica, so we decided to put together a list of our Top 10 Yoga retreats in Costa Rica.
