costa rica

a Tropical paradise

On this 6-night, 7-day fitness retreat to the Guanacaste region on Costa Rica, we’ll stay in a luxury beachfront villa overlooking the beautiful golden sands of Playa Langosta, near Tamarindo. With jaw-dropping modern interiors, and a pool and private steps down to the near-remote beach, you'll never want to leave this ‘pura vida’ lifestyle.

This beach town is known for its unparalleled surf, laid-back vibes, and endless adventure opportunities in nature, making it the perfect base for a week of exploring and relaxing.

What to expect

Explore Here

salt, sunsets & pura vida


Day 1

Touchdown costa rica

Check in after 4 pm and settle in for the week of your life. Explore your new home for the week, meet new friends by the pool, and unwind with a mobility session to shake off travel-day. As the sun sets, sip an ice-cold sundowner overlooking the ocean, followed by our first group dinner.

Day 2

Fitness and feasts

Kick off the first full-day with a team workout and breakfast Costa Rica-style (just wait!). Hit the beach before our stretch & recovery session, followed by a delicious, nutritious lunch. Soak up the sun poolside or take a golf-buggy to explore the local beach town, before we round out a salty day with workout number 2 and a sunset dinner.

Day 3

Surfs up

A morning of surfing with the help of some local instructors. Kick back and relax with some recovery, and work up a sweat in our afternoon beach workout. In between all that, enjoy heaps of down-time to chill, explore and embrace the sounds and sights of beautiful Costa Rica. If you're after a little extra adventure, head off into the national park for some zip-lining.

Day 4

chasing waterfalls

Costa Rica is home to some of the best waterfalls in the world, so after a morning workout and refuelling brekkie, we set off for our waterfall hike and jungle adventure. We'll stop for a chef-cooked packed lunch at the waterfalls and for cooling swim-stops along the way, before we head back to our villa for sundowners, and a special sunset dinner.

Day 5

workouts and waves

Kick off the day with a sunrise workout and brekkie, before more surfing, sunning and exploring. Rest those tired muscles with an afternoon recovery session, ice baths and beachfront massages. Time to get your best fits on for a magical sunset dinner, as we head out for a Costa Rican feast at our favourite local spot.

Day 6

Adventures and sundowners

Wake up to our last full day together with workouts, beach adventures and heaps of down-time to kick back with your new mates. As golden hour rolls around, there's one more chance to jump in the ocean and soak up the sunset with a cold-one in hand, and surrounded by the people you've just made life-long memories with.

Day 7

Homebound and Happy

Checkout is at 10 am, so plenty of time to squeeze in one more salty workout and a final breakfast spread to see you on your way. Whether you're staying on to explore more of this magical country, or heading home, it's not goodbye, it's see you on the next adventure.

"Salt Escape truly is the best fitness retreat out there! Mike and Amy are really welcoming and lovely and the food was absolutely amazing! Workouts are tough and challenging but no need for any particular previous experience/fitness level. Have recommended to all my friends and will certainly go again! Thank you both 🙌🏻"

"I can’t put into words just how amazing Salt Escapes is! Mike & Amy have truly created something special, bringing together like-minded people for the most incredible experience.
I’ve done two trips (Zakynthos and Costa Rica) and am already planning trip number three! Salt Escapes is the perfect balance of adventure, fitness and fun. The team are so welcoming, the workouts are challenging, but, rewarding, and there is good balance of activity and downtime. If you’re even thinking about it, just do it!"

"THE BEST WEEK OF MY LIFE! I don’t even know where to start with my review. Hands down the best investment I have ever made. I truly believe that what you get with Salt Escapes is unique. I have been on other group exercise holidays before and met amazing people, but this was something else. There are so many little thoughtful added extras that make this trip perfect. It’s been a week since I returned, and I am still absolutely buzzing. I can’t wait to go on the next Escape."

"Fantastic week with top tier trainers, diverse individual and team-based work-outs along with wholesome/high-quality restaurant grade food to fuel you through the sessions (seconds encouraged). Plenty to do away from exercise (boat trips, downtime etc) and left feeling much fitter and stronger as well as surprisingly refreshed."

"Hands down one of the most fun trips I've been on! It was fun to meet people from around the globe and share meals, workouts, and downtime. The hosts, Mike and Amy, are genuine and caring people who went out of their way to ensure all was taken care of and each person was enjoying their time. If you are looking for a trip that focuses on fitness, healthy eating, and socializing, all while staying in a luxurious house, look no further : )"

"Can not say enough wonderful things about Salt Escapes. I speak with my actions and am just finishing my second trip with them (there will definitely be a third). They do an incredible job curating the destinations, accommodations and food. Most importantly though, they build an amazing community. Their attention to detail is unmatched.  The best tour operator I have ever used."
