Females traveling by themselves to Costa Rica’s yoga retreats have been on the rise at places such as Vajra Sol in Santa Teresa or the Nosara Yoga Institute.
Yoga retreats in Costa Rica are seeing a rising number of lone female travelers coming to their establishments to center themselves while meeting new friends. The choice to head out without family or loved ones stems from the desire to forge new relationships while pursuing something they enjoy, and the overall safety of these pre-planned trips helps them to cement their choice to do so.
It’s not just a phenomenon specific to Costa Rica. Booking.com has reported a 53% increase in the number of female travelers booking trips where they are traveling by themselves. The Eat, Pray, Love effect has taken over much of the world, and more and more women are seeking to find themselves through travel and cultural experiences.
The retreats in Costa Rica such as Vajra Sol at the beach community of Santa Teresa or Nosara Yoga Institute in the rainforests near Playa Nosara offer just the right mix of life in the tropics and meditation focused exercise practices to entice many female travelers. The added adventure aspect that they can afford travelers with tours such as canyoning expeditions, horseback riding tours, personally instructed surf lessons and many more also play a large part in a woman’s decision to head to Costa Rica’s yoga retreat.
Many of these travelers are moms who are taking a break from work and family to enjoy the surf and the sun while rediscovering themselves. Costa Rica offers the perfect mix of professional tour services along with certified yoga instructors that brings in more variety than just the young adventure seeker sect.
