HDS philosophy

Hacienda Del Sol is an all-inclusive, eco-friendly, wellness retreat centre surrounded by acres of untouched Guanacaste jungle, and located just a couple of kilometers from several beaches on the Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica. It is an alcohol and drug free retreat oasis, which focuses on detoxification, weight loss, and rejuvenation. Our ongoing 7 -28 Day juice cleanses, detox, ketogenic, fitness, yoga and spa retreats aim to renew you from the inside out.

Our method is simple: we immerse you in nature, feed you nutrient dense and delicious food, and guide you through physical activities that increase your freedom to move (what we call nutritious movement), all combining to calm your central nervous system. Regardless of the retreat you chose, everyday follows a cycle of sympathetic nervous system activation (ex. primal yoga, workouts, hikes, etc) in the morning, then parasympathetic nervous system activation (ex. meditative movement classes, sunset watching, easy jungle walks, etc) in the afternoon. This re-synching with nature will recalibrate your biorhythms (for example your circadian rhythms) thus optimizing your natural healing mechanisms.

  • Happy Sunday! Need healthy brunch ideas on this beautiful spring Sunday? Our keto pancakes here at the centre are still a fan favorite. 
They have only have 1 net carb per pancake and are fluffy and so satisfying. You can drizzle them with monk fruit maple syrup by Lakanto for the authentic taste! These are topped with lakanto maple syrup and a spoon full of almond butter. The recipe is easy: 4 eggs, 4 tablespoons coconut flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tblsp psyllium husk, 1 tblsp ground chia seeds, 1 tblsp vanilla, 2 cups unsweetened almond milk. Blend and make as regular pancakes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Have you ever noticed that you just feel better when your in nature? 🧐 Well... whether it’s new news to you or not... being  in nature, or even viewing scenes of nature has been proven to reduces anger, fear, stress and increases pleasant feelings 👍. Exposure to nature not only makes you feel better emotionally, it actually has been proven to reduce blood pressure, lower heart rate, lower muscle tension, and lower the production of stress hormones. Make an effort to reconnect with nature ❤️ and thank it for the gifts it gives us 🙏
