The Jungle Lodge

Guest rooms are arrayed on a hillside and are fronted by a sitting porch which looks out into the beautiful flower garden where butterflies and hummingbirds fly endlessly. There are four twin rooms which are spacious, simple and warmly decorated, featuring private bathrooms with a hot shower, mini-fridge, room safes and ceiling fans.

The eco-friendly lodge, used exclusively by Sunflower Retreats guests, has five guest rooms with private bathrooms, keeping it intimate, quiet and low-impact. It has a wonderful swimming pool, waterfall jacuzzi, yoga shala and a lounge-dining area and terraces which are ideal for relaxing and practicing yoga and meditation. There are hammocks to relax in and free wi-fi all around the property.


A delicious breakfast of local fruit (papaya, mangos, pineapples),fresh yogurt, cereal, coffee or tea, eggs ,toast with jam and honey is served after yoga practice each day and on the morning of departure day.

We'll also organise trips to experience delicious cuisine in authentic local restaurant in the seaside towns of Mal Pais or Santa Teresa on the evening when there is no buffet dinner. A small fee, per person, is charged for transport to-and-from the town for this service.

Delicious healthy dinners are included in the price five times within a six night stay and two times within a four night stay.

The food is mainly vegetarian but includes some local fresh fish dishes. The food is locally-sourced.

The lodge also has a maid service which you can book at breakfast-time for when you want a snack or drink during the day, or if you decide not to join the visit to a local restaurant.
