Immerse yourself in nature, enjoy organic farm-to-table meals, participate in our daily movement classes, and rest deeply for a total reset. All of our specially-crafted retreats aim to renew, revitalize, and restore you from the inside out. And they all share one vital ingredient in common – our Hacienda Del Sol Wellness Method.
We feed you nutrient-dense, delicious food
Guide you through physical activity that creates freedom of movement
Provide quiet, luxurious spaciousness for rest and sleep
Immerse you in beautiful, healing nature
These four foundational pillars are at the heart of everything we do, so that you can journey back to your natural state of wellness. Each space in Hacienda Del Sol has been mindfully created as an integral part of the transformational journey to hold you inside of this soft strength.
Combining ancient knowledge with modern science, our curated offerings are woven from this supportive foundation. With the aim of reactivating the regulatory and regenerative power of the body, everyday follows a cycle of:
From here, your central nervous system can calm and regulate, and in turn, restore your body’s natural ability to function optimally.
All of our meals contain nutrient-dense, locally-sourced whole foods, which are rich with living enzymes, fiber, plant and local animal proteins, healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals.
Naturally grain-, dairy-, and sugar-free, we are firm believers in feeding our bodies as they were designed to eat, what we call ‘primal’, for maximum energy and nourishment.
Because our modern diets are so nutrient-depleted, our bodies are starving even if we are eating ‘enough’ calories. This puts undue pressure on the nervous system, which literally thinks it’s in a famine state – causing an exacerbated, constant stress response. Skipping meals just worsens the situation.
When you stay with us, this imbalance gets corrected and the body finds its metabolic equilibrium.
We grow as much of our produce as we can on site and receive the rest from farmer’s markets.
Local animal products such as daily caught fish, eggs, shrimp, and occasional chicken are also used (though we have plenty of plant-based options available as well). The ingredients we source are always fresh, whole, and organic whenever possible.
With the addition of our 400-square meter hydroponic greenhouse and vast outdoor natural garden, we are designed to be 80% self-sustainable with farm-to-table nutrition.
Hacienda Del Sol offers 3 different types of nutrient dense, anti-inflammatory menus:
Note that the Juice Cleanse meal plan must be led by a facilitator in the custom retreats and wellness packs designed for this option.
The Vegetarian and Daily Primal Specials menus can be chosen from our menu as daily meal options for any of the other retreats. Read more about our culinary experience here.
At Hacienda Del Sol we believe that physical movement should be treated as a nutrient that feeds your body’s freedom to move: creating space, gaining pain-free mobility, and melting away stress hormones.
We also believe in cultivating a deep and mindful connection with your body, in order to use it more efficiently and not force it into chronic shut down. In other words, ‘more’ is NOT better.
Activities that support this process are what we call ‘Nutritious Movement’.
This is achieved by physically and mentally reaching your edge, but not pushing past it.
Our Primal Yoga classes, Reflect and Recharge classes, and Primal Fitness classes are all rich with nutritious movement that feeds your body, rather than depletes it.

Every detail of our location was selected by design to immerse you in the healing power of nature. We are surrounded by acres of untouched Guanacaste jungle.
We are located a couple of kilometers from several pristine and protected beaches in the world’s largest ‘Blue Zone’ (one of only five in the world). Blue Zones are areas known for their rich and measurable quality of life – where people live longer, better.
With an intentional focus on detoxification, weight loss, fitness, and rejuvenation, each of our bungalows has private terraces which open to the native tropical landscape. Our pools are saltwater, our amenities are sustainable and biodegradable, and our entire footprint is eco-friendly.
Every element of our resort – from our boutique bungalows to our zen-like pool area – was designed for optimal comfort and ease so that when you lie contentedly in your hammock or sink into your cloud-like bed listening to the white noise of soothing jungle sounds, you rest and sleep deeply.
We invite you to slow down to the pace of being.
In addition to our comprehensive menu of Spa and Healing Services, all of our retreats offer flexible downtime to simply journal, relax, reflect, and be.
