December 28 – January 4 2024/2025

Spend New Year’s week barefoot on the beach, surfing tropical waves, watching the sun melt into the ocean, dancing the night away, and celebrating the New Year in “pura vida’ style.

We’ve planned an adventurous, rejuvenating retreat that will help jump-start your New Year’s resolutions. Our beautiful beachfront resort is the perfect place to unwind and bring in the new year with healthy cuisine, full-service spa treatments, and an oceanfront pool, steps away from the beach. Our caring team of highly-trained professionals will guide you through your vacation with surfing, yoga, PLUS a special day trip to the waterfalls in neighboring Montezuma, and an EPIC New Year’s Eve party.

Our end of the year beach party “under the stars” starts with a gourmet dinner, followed by local live music and dancing until midnight and beyond! The coastline is alight with bonfires and fireworks…simply stunning.

Costa Rica Surf School
Costa Rica Surf School and Yoga Retreat


From our oceanfront beach bungalows to the world-class Tropico Latino spa to the delicious meals prepared by renowned Costa Rican chef Randy Siles, everything at our surf and yoga retreats is designed with “Pura Vida” (the joy of life) in mind.

“I just wanted to let you know again how incredibly thankful I am for my experience at PVA. It exceeded my expectations in every way. The hotel was awesome. The instructors and hosts were caring, funny, knowledgeable, and always made safety a priority. The food was excellent… I could go on and on.

“The week I spent at PVA would certainly be on my top 10 list of most terrific, fun, fabulous, and best things I’ve ever done in my life. I was fortunate to meet a group of amazing people, surf some waves, and generally revel in the utopian environment that is Mal Pais and Pura Vida Adventures.”
