Location

Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica

The Nicoya Peninsula is known for its sapphire waters that curl into perfect waves up and down the coast. It is the perfect location to hunker down on a pristine patch of sand and soak up some sun or ramble down rugged roads, fording rivers and navigating ridges with spectacular coastal views.

This boot-shaped peninsula straddles two of Costa Rica’s most beautiful provinces. The untouched scenery, lively jungle and rugged terrain all come together in the kaleidoscopic beauty that this country is so well known for.

On the southern tip of the Nicoya Peninsula, located just 30 minutes from Tambor airport, Cabuya has been described as the ‘closest thing to paradise you can find in Costa Rica.’ One of the most remote towns on the coastline, Cabuya is a delightful breath of fresh air, tucked away from tourism and the hectic nature of day to day life.

Characterized by its pristine beaches, glassy surf breaks, dramatic waterfalls and rugged jungle, Cabuya is a slice of untouched wilderness where the ocean breeze will lull you into a world that feels very far away.

Food

Artistic-gourmet vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free cuisine comprises one of the pillars which supports, nourishes, detoxes, and cleanses you on a Yoga Teacher Training Certification Program.

The talented plant-based chef will create for you three unforgettable tropical fusion meals per day inspired by the world’s greatest cuisines. The healthy organic food is artistically crafted to please all of the senses. Meals are designed around the seasons using Ayurvedic principles while incorporating the best and freshest local ingredients, herbs and spices. All organic produce is from local Costa Rican family farms. Meals are well balanced and prepared with love. This positive energy is infused into the food, aiding the digestion process.

Plenty of protein is provided by using legumes, seeds and nuts, artisan cheeses, and eggs from free-ranging chickens. With an ever-expanding orchard of over 300 various tropical fruit trees, freshly picked organic fruits make great complements to your dining experience. Overall, this will produce a more lively healthy body and mind and is the most environmentally friendly diet.

Shared Lofts at The Sanctuary at Two Rivers

Shared Lofts

The Jungle Lofts are sensitively green-designed to harmonize within the natural environment, providing a comfortable up-close and very personal experience with nature. Each of the six jungle lofts at The Sanctuary has an area of 625 sq. feet and places each guest at eye level with the forest canopy and her passing monkeys, singing tropical birds, and scented floral trees. Plenty of room to perch yourself on a hammock at canopy eye level with your favorite book, a pair of binoculars, digital camera and a glass of fresh mountain spring water. Screened-in open-faced walls allow for vintage viewing, excellent ventilation, and pleasurable sun and moonlight. Refreshingly cool slate stone supports the ambiance to relax, recharge, and reconnect.

Upstairs in the bedroom mezzanine, guest beds have an unencumbered view to the jungle. In the spacious bathroom, and private dressing area there is ample sink shelf space for each guest. And right outside is a tropical garden view solar hot water shower with great pressure, and wide showerhead. All of these jungle lofts are of a townhouse design with two lofts side-by-side. Each accommodates two individuals; each guest in a single twin bed, or combined to form a king bed.​
