You can be a beginner surfer or an experienced pro, the waves outside the hotel offer the perfect surfing conditions. Guests can enjoy the spectacular sunsets from the beach at a few minutes walk from their room, or spend the lazy afternoon beneath the shade of a palm tree in the backdrop of the hypnotically clashing sea waves. The ocean is always just a few meters away here, and when it’s time to take a break from the tropical, guests can rest on their relaxing hammocks or sip on a refreshing drink at the rancho.

Casa Zen’s open air treetop yoga deck stimulates the veteran yogi and beginner alike, with daily classes open to all. Their yoga retreats are ongoing and can be personalized to your linking. You can take a rejuvenating morning practice or a more contemplative afternoon session or even a sundown meditative sitting.

    Buenos dias,
    quiero reservar un cuarto para dos personas
    para las noches del 24.7. y 25.7.2011. Somos dos
    estudiantes y hermanas de Alemania. Yo por
    mi parte ya he visitado Malpais y me quedaba en
    su hotel. Me acuerdo que pagué 12 dolares para
    una noche, pero era un cuarto para 3 personas.
    Por eso queria saber el precio antes de reservar.
    Muchas gracias y saludos de Alemania
    Ramona y Carina Barent
