A Hidden Gem on the Pacific
March 1-5, 2018 : La Costa del Bálsamo, Playa El Tunco, El Salvador
On this 5-day co-ed oceanside soul vacation we’ll journey to La Costa del Bálsamo for local flavors and undiscovered beauty. A Condé Nast “best kept secret,” this unspoiled El Salvadorian coastline takes it’s name from the aromatic oil of the balsam tree. Enveloped by friendly faces and an abundance of natural life, this beachfront surf, SUP and seva retreat experience is the perfect setting for exploration, relaxation and stargazing.
luxury resort, local cantinas
& authentic culture
Escape to Central America for a wild adventure for the soul.
Wake up to the sounds of the Pacific Ocean and the smell of freshly roasted locally-grown coffee. Wander down for a morning yoga session in our studio surrounded by the lush tropical landscape. Catch a wave, grab a cheap beer and enjoy some of the freshest seafood imaginable. Stroll to a funky little beach town, relax by the pool or take an afternoon nap as your hammock swings in the ocean breeze and the sun sets over the ocean. After our chef-prepared dinner let your hair down, grab your new friends and hit the dance floor for a salsa dance class.
This Retreat is For You
Perfect for adventurers at heart, this co-ed retreat is especially curated for all-levels from bare beginners to those with experience on the mat or the board. All-inclusive packages include luxury resort accommodations, surfing or SUP (stand up paddleboard), salsa dance class, yoga, meditation and soulwork classes featuring Enneagram teachings, daily brunch and dinner plus healthy snacks and freshly cracked coconut water, as well as opportunities to engage with local community.

“El Salvador is Central America’s most underrated country. Visitors who do make the effort are invariably impressed by just how much this tiny country has to offer: world-class surfing on empty waves, dark-sand beaches; coffee plantations clinging to the sides of volcanoes; colorful Spanish colonial towns; and sublime national parks. There is only so much encouragement we can give; it’s now up to you.” —Lonely Planet
“As a recovering Type A who lives in my head, your retreat has been A Truly Amazing Experience. Being present, being authentic, being at peace – those are phrases I never thought would apply to me. I came not knowing what to expect, and I am so grounded and reset. I feel embraced and embrace all the world has to offer.”Paige S, 2017 retreat participant
