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 choose, 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.

  • Pura Bungalow #2 recently remodeled and refurnished with custom handmade old teak furniture and this incredible canopy bed. The original high vaulted ceilings keep the bungalow fresh and spacious (even though it does also have air conditioning). If you’ve stayed in this bungalow before you’ll notice we added the glass doors in the bathroom so that you have the option for it to be open to the jungle or closed in, but still have the incredible view while showering!  Give us a comment if you love this bungalow ❤️
  • So excited for all our new #primal and #keto menu selections 😋 healthy food has to taste good and be easy, otherwise it’s impossible to live your life actually enjoying eating healthy food! If it’s a “diet” then it will never last. Focus on finding healthy things that you actually like and will make at home. It doesn’t have to be what we make, it  has to be what you like! Happy cooking, and happy lunch time!!
