I’ve been coming to Costa Rica for years and spending time at El Velero is always a highlight of my trip. The people here are wonderful, very friendly and great service. The location is also amazing with direct access to the most beautiful beach. Highly...More
This is going to be one of those reviews where the reviewer rambles angrily on. And, in fact, if this isn't one of those angry rambling reviews for a crappy establishment, I apologize because it is most certainly meant to be that. However, as much...More

We had a very great stay. We wanted to stay in a place that was more Costa Rican than a resort and we found it. The rooms aren't fancy but clean and comfortable. The staff are very friendly, helpful and fun. After a couple of...More

Unfortunatly I cannot answer this question as I am not into yoga however, you can ask the owner directly as he is very resourceful and knows everybody around the area......however, I did see people on the beach doing yoga and they invited us so this is not something unknown to them.

The food at El Velero is pretty good. Ginger is directly east of the hotel up on the main road. It is a Spanish Tapas restaurant, and very reasonably priced for the quality of food that is served. La Casita Del Marisco is a small seafood joint that is close to the Condovac, they serve all kinds of different fresh seafood dishes. Restaurant Mangaby is small little restaurant that is just up from the beach towards Ginger. It is a small quint hotel that has a bar and restaurant on the premises. The food is quite good, and the service is great.
