About

Yoga Caravan values inclusivity and community in all our retreats. Queer Caravan (QC) simply takes that extra step of saying LGBTQI first on this one! QC will include all the great yoga and adventurous excursions of our other Uvita retreats: surfing, waterfall hikes, repelling, and more. We will also take the time to do some special activities and yoga classes which speak directly to our LGBTQI family. Allies are welcome and wanted to share in out first ever queer-focused retreat. It is going to be a blast!

Location

Selva Armonia is located in Uvita, Costa Rica, 3.5 miles up a dirt road, nestled in the jungle, overlooking the majestic Whale’s Tail peninsula of Marino Ballena National Park. Our group of travelers will fly into the San Jose International Airport and then we will shuttle together (approx. 4 hrs) to the property.

Accommodation

Alive, beautiful, and peaceful, Selva Armonia is a remote rainforest paradise with ecologically conscious rooms, nourishing, homegrown meals, saltwater swimming pool, open-air yoga deck, and beautiful aerial views of the Whale's Tail peninsula and Playa Ballena National Park. There is wifi available throughout the property but can at times be spotty due to the remote, jungle location. More detailed information and photos of Selva Armonia can be found here.

Rooms are shared with a maximum of 3 people per room. Private rooms are also available on a limited basis for an additional cost. Please note that all bathrooms are shared.
