  • Poolside bar

The stunning property of Tamarindo Diria Resort has a boutique-y vibe with lush grounds, four-star accommodations, and friendly, welcoming staff. There are three pools, including two with swim-up bars, a tennis court, and massage services. Plus, being right on the beach means you'll waste no time between a fresh and delicious breakfast and soaking up the morning sunshine. The best part? While the property is relaxing and peaceful, you are steps away from a safe local town with plenty of restaurants, bars, and shops to explore - the perfect vacation balance with something for everyone!


Each guest will have a private coaching session with Sarah to kick off the retreat and ensure your goals are top of mind each day. Also, you'll come together as a group for one to two daily workouts with an invigorating workout in the mornings and a restorative class in the evenings.

Classes will be modified to challenge all levels and will vary between strength and conditioning exercises. Also, Sarah will sprinkle in a few wellness workshops to offer additional insight throughout your stay while learning to maximize your workouts by warming up and using proper form.

Welcome to Costa Rica! Guests will arrive at Liberia, Costa Rica's Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport (LIR) and take a provided shuttle to the resort, the Tamarindo Diria. You'll check-in and then meet for introductions, an Intention-setting workshop and a welcome stretch at sunset. Tonight's included dinner will be at a beach restaurant in town!

Friday, February 7, 2020

This morning, you will kick off your morning workout routine with a strength class using just your own bodyweight followed by a nourishing breakfast overlooking the ocean waves. After some time to change or walk the beach, you'll depart for a zip lining adventure through tree canopies - the ultimate adventure (and bonding experience).

You'll return for a free afternoon to enjoy some lunch and free time and begin the scheduled one-on-ones with Sarah. You'll come together once again in the late afternoon for a more restorative class with a focus on stretching and mobility and then enjoy the sunset. Tonight is a free night for dinner and optional nightlife - salsa dancing under the stars, anyone?

Saturday, February 8, 2020

Today, you will work up your breakfast appetite with an optional beach walk followed by a total body interval training class overlooking the ocean. Then you'll have a fresh breakfast and finish up any remaining one-on-ones before heading down the beach for a surf lesson. This all-levels class will be led by professionals who know the waves and are experts in helping you get up on the board.

You'll have time to practice on your own and when you finish up, you have a free afternoon to relax on the beach or by the pools. You'll meet again for an afternoon Healthy Habits workshop and stretch followed by a free night to enjoy dinner at one of the area's amazing restaurants.

Sunday, February 9, 2020

You will kick off the morning with a check-in on the intentions you set on day one. Have you kept your personal goals in mind? Are you making the most out of each day? Are you stepping outside your comfort zone? The morning workout will follow this train of thought as you focus on an invigorating strength and conditioning class.

You'll end with breakfast and then enjoy a free day to explore the surrounding town of Tamarindo, go on an adventure to another beach, or sign up for an additional activity like a massage, horseback riding or kayaking. In the afternoon, you'll come together for a workshop about Building a Program and a sunset stretch and then get ready for your final group dinner (included) at an amazing restaurant.

Monday, February 10, 2020

This final day will kick off with an early morning fitness class, some final remarks, and nourishing breakfast. Then you will have time to take one last dip in the ocean, walk on the beach, or stroll through town before departing for the airport with a healthy glow and a big smile!
