Why You Should Book Directly with Caribe Yoga Academy

We’re a boutique Yoga Academy and many of our students come from international locations around the world. We don’t use a fancy booking system, and though you may have seen us on some of the popular booking sites (BookYogaRetreats and RetreatNetwork) we prefer instead that you book with us directly.

Why we use our own reservation system:
  1. Reservation systems are costly and take a lot of time to maintain (we prefer to focus on providing the very best, authentic and tranquil learning environment for our students)
  2. Booking Sites take a large fee from our customers AND our academy (sometimes as much as 30% goes to the site… and not to our school).
Booking Directly with Caribe Yoga Academy means that:
  • Your deposit goes immediately to your benefit (instead of fees for an outside booking site)
  • You’re helping Caribe Yoga Academy support our amazing staff and continue to improve the OM at Cashew Hill facilities
  • You’re benefiting the local Puerto Viejo economy (we do our best to buy local and stay local… it’s how our community thrives!)
What to Expect When You Book:

We use Square payment gateway and digital invoicing service as well as our website registration forms to take reservations and deposits.  If you prefer to use PayPal, bank transfer, cash or USA / Costa Rican check, please contact us.  

If you have any questions, you can always email us directly and we’ll be happy to address any concerns!
