“La Selva at Nomad Tree Lodge” is an adventure accommodation offering a Home to surfers, yogis, and nomads from around the world.

We offer daily yoga, and foot access to 2 world class surf breaks (intermediate/ advanced).

We're not perfect, we're not luxury, but life here is really beautiful in it's raw simplicity. If you sign up for this adventure, commit to surrendering to the jungle and immersing yourself in this unique experience.

NOTE: wifi in communal space only, no guest kitchen.

The space
The Surf Shack is a newly-remodeled building, inspired by our need to provide space for the true heart of nomad - our surfers :) These single units are PERFECT for solo-travelers. Totally private space all to yourself, a big picture window of the jungle, super fresh & breezy, sound of the waves crashing at night … and super simply furnished - a nice twin bed (with great mattress & sheets!), and a desk.

There are shared bathrooms in the building and a shared kitchen space/ hang space in addition to the central hang space of the lodge.

Having been a solo traveler for many years - this would have been my dream room.
