Yoga, Surfing, Tours in Costa Rica

Sandra Sharp Dygert and Derek Dygert are the owners and operators of Hermosa Retreats. We love to share the stoke of surfing, the pureness of our yoga, and the Pura Vida lifestyle of Costa Rica.

Derek was born and raised in Costa Rica, fluent in both English and Spanish, he is your personal & local tour guide. Learning to surf at the young age of 4, he can't get enough and has surfed just about every day since, he is a true waterman. Derek began to teach surfing 8 years ago and is CPR and water rescue certified. 

Sandra loves to share her passion for an active and healthy lifestyle! Sandra was diagnosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis at the age of 10. Before this she was active in many sports. After several years and many types of medicine, therapy, and rehab she found ease in her pain and was able to get back into sports.  She stumbled upon yoga in 2010 while attending University at Nova Southeastern. She loved the way her body felt during practice. She now takes very little medicine for her RA and finds a yogic lifestyle and a vegetarian diet is the cause! She became certified to teach in 2012. She loves to teach yoga and share her healthy lifestyle tips with everyone. She is constantly learning new styles and techniques from her fellow teachers and students. She moved to Costa Rica in 2012 and is eager to share her passion for a healthy and active lifestyle, love of Costa Rica and good waves!
