I spent a week on a yoga and surfing retreat at Boca Sombrero, and came back a new man. The Osa and Puerto Jimenez are truly remote, so you are really, really on a retreat. I shared the Casa Troya, a unique and beautiful hardwood and thatch structure, from which you can see the surfers in action. No alarm clock needed - monkeys woke us in plenty of time for coffee and yoga, followed by breakfast 2. (That was a theme - two of every meal.) The food was delicious, varied and healthy. The yoga pavilion is well-built and well-equipped. Our hostess, Monica, is kind-hearted and resourceful woman, who went above and beyond helping out her guests. In my case, she connected me with Federman R., a dependable and detail-oriented guide and driver in San José.
