Lodging and Location


Casa De Alces

The group will be housed in Casa De Alces, an exquisite private home just five minutes from the waves of playa Guiones. All meals are prepared by a private chef, with the exception of a night or two exploring local fare at the restaurants in Nosara. There is a private yoga studio on premises where classes are conducted daily for the group. Program participants are in shared rooms assigned by gender. Casa de Alces provides exceptional amenities from quiet nooks for meditation to an inviting outdoor dining area and pool for lounging after surf. Recovery meetings take place in the communal area each evening.



Playa Guiones, Nosara, Costa Rica

Playa Guiones is nestled in the quiet, quaint town of Nosara in the Guanacaste Province on the Pacific side of the country of Costa Rica. Unlike the crowded beaches of places like Tamarindo, Jaco, or Dominical, in Nosara you won’t be trampled by hordes of tourists. There are no street lights or paved roads and we still have monkeys cruising in the trees. There are just the right amount of amenities in town to ensure you have a relaxing vacation. It’s a surfer’s paradise!
