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.

  • Social connection strengthens our immune function, helps us recover from disease faster and may even lengthen our life.
We designed Hacienda programs to allow for genuine connection and friendship building, while still giving you need the alone time you need to decompress, heal and reset your nervous system. 
So who says you need to escape alone to achieve true wellness? Join us this summer with three friends and you’ll each receive the gift of 15% off your stay. 😘
  • To do this weekend:
Take a few moments to sit still and calm your thoughts. 
Ask your body what it needs. 
Do that. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Listen to your body. 💕 It knows what’s up. (Image credit unknown, message us if you know the creator)
  • To all the mommas out there, may your Mother’s Day weekend be everything you deserve and more. No matter what your weekend looks like, we hope you take some time to celebrate yourself, all that you do, and how far you’ve come. 💕 
Psst... if you want to treat your mom (and/or yourself) this summer, nothing makes a better gift than being surrounded by nature, nourishing food, and amazing movement. At least that’s what we’ve heard 😉

  • 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. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
