This is not your typical vacation. Instead of eating like a slob and lounging around while your vacation time slips away, the goal for this retreat is to help you come home in better shape than when you left!

Throughout this retreat you will learn a unique blend of Muay Thai techniques, training methods and drills that you can take home and adapt into your own training routine. With this type of training, you will develop a more aware and focused mind, especially through the additional yoga and mindfulness practices that the group does throughout the week.

On top of the training you will also get to explore the gorgeous scenery Costa Rica has to offer. Not only that, you will also be served delicious, healthy, fresh meals three times a day while having the opportunity to lounge out by the Infinity Pool or lay in a hammock between sessions.

We all came from different martial arts backgrounds and experiences, but Sean was able to adapt and teach us appropriately. He focused not only on our strengths, but weaknesses, and I can safely say that I left as a better Muay Thai enthusiast." - Safi S.

The Perfect "Train-cation" For Muay Thai Addicts

“It’s been an amazing lifetime experience.” – Adam V

"I didn’t know what to expect, going to a new country, training with some unfamiliar faces and stepping out of my comfort zone, but attending Sean Fagan's Muay Thai retreat in Costa Rica in March of 2015 was one of the best choices I made."

I was surprised right off the bat how down to earth and friendly Sean was. I have had a lot of good luck with generally only dealing with positive people in the muay Thai community but you never know meeting somebody you have only followed online. Not only was he friendly to myself and the other members of our group but he was open to our input as far as what we wanted to train and do outside of training.

It’s always challenging making everyone happy especially a group that was pretty mixed as ours. He was patient with us, which is one of the hardest parts of training or teaching other. Some people don’t have that quality and it makes them poor teachers… Sean definitely is not lacking in this.

As far as the resort and country went, it was awesome. It was really the experience of a lifetime amazing food, beautiful beaches, super friendly locals and tropical weather. The hosts were extremely accomodating and friendly, I would go there again in a heart beat.

One of the coolest parts about the whole experience was meeting new people from different parts of the world that came together over a common bond like muay Thai, it really shows the positivity this sport can bring into your life. I gained some great experience from Sean and would train under him again anytime. The first day back to my normal gym people were amazed how much I was showing improvement, just from one week of focused work with Sean.

– Wesley Smith


These Muay Thai retreats are more than just about Muay Thai, it’s about having an active, healthy vacation where you get to try out new things and experience a different way of life. Here are a few of the other activities that you can choose to do while on your retreat:


Have you ever wanted to try surfing? Well there is no better time and place to do it than with a professional surf instructor at the beautiful Playa Guiones!

In fact, Guioness beach is rated as one of the World’s Top 20 surf locations and is an ideal spot for beginners to learn the fundamentals of catching waves.

Already a seasoned surfer? Then rent a board and enjoy year-round consistent surf conditions. Heck, you could even try stand-up paddle boarding if you wanted!


Nosara is the yoga capital of Costa Rica. The Jungle’s Edge has a 40×60 ft open-aired yoga studio surrounded by banana trees. The Jungles Edge environment, full of fruit plants and vibrant colors, is the perfect place to relax and enjoy your yoga sessions. 

By training yoga you will become much more in-tune with your body’s movements, improve your flexibility AND become mentally stronger – which will help you become a better Muay Thai student and be more focused, aware and driven throughout everyday life. 

There will be 1-2 sessions mixed in with your Muay Thai training led by certified yoga teacher Liz Gaschler.

Take an afternoon off from Muay Thai training and join the group in a trip to one of the most pristine waterfalls you'll ever see. 

BYou can choose to dive off the waterfalls cliffs or just hang out and take a dip in the swimming holes surrounding the area. We'll pack fresh fruits, coconuts and snacks to enjoy while taking in the beautiful jungle atmosphere!


After your afternoon training session take a trip down to the beach to watch the stunning sunsets that Costa Rica has to offer on Guiones Beach. 

Once the light starts to fade get ready for a group bonfire where you get to stargaze and chat with fellow passionate retreat members. 

This was one of the best parts of the trip!


Balancing all facets of life (i.e. work, family, relationships and training) all at once is a constant battle that can suck the life out of even the most driven of people. Every now and then it's absolutely crucial to take a break from the day-to-day grind to recharge and relax, especially when we are feeling burnt out from doing too much.

If you go on a Muay Thai retreat, you're able to escape the stressors of life and completely cleanse your mind, body and soul. Listen to what past retreater Harland had to say about his experience at my retreat earlier this year.

Are you serious about coming to this tropical retreat , but still have more questions?

Fill out the short survey below and Sean will personally get in touch with you to answer your questions!

“I was a bit nervous going to Costa Rica on a Muay Thai retreat. New country, new people, and traveling alone left me not knowing what to expect. But as soon as I landed and met Sean, Liz and Wes, I knew that it was going to be amazing!

We trained twice a day, every day, and every session we learned something new and got in great shape while doing it. Sean is an amazing teacher with a lot of knowledge and love for Muay Thai. After each session, I felt a better sense of what my weaknesses are and what my strengths are. Training with Sean in Costa Rica gave me what I needed to re-motivate myself and be the best that I can be inside the ring and outside. I will definitely be attending more of his retreats!

I feel very fortunate to have had this experience and will definitely implement what I learned into my training and into my style of fighting. I can’t thank Sean enough!”
