We have been to Blue Spirit for the past 5 years and the beauty of this sanctuary never ceases to amaze me. Every year the retreat center-hotel becomes more and more beautiful. New art, new installations, more plants sheltering you and more wild animals to discover. The facilities are incredibly confortable and natural. My family is returning for New Year's... More

Pura Vida is alive and well at this spa resort. It will make you live longer and better, but don't come here unless you are already in good shape! I'm staying two weeks; the first week is in an Eco Cottage, 300 or so stone steps from the beautiful main building where the dining and my morning retreat activities take... More

Our third time to Blue Spirit on yoga retreats. A delightful place to settle into yourself, energy and peace, gives time not to think and just be. Stayed in the huts at the bottom of the slope a few times to get that extra back to nature feeling, and showering outside :)

Not to mention the massage therapists who are truly... More

I led a retreat to Blue Spirit in January 2015. The grounds were luscious, the food was delicious, and the staff were super friendly and attentive. Blue Spirit has clearly discovered what it takes to provide the ideal setting for a retreat. We will be back next year.

Went for a yoga retreat and had a wonderful time. But be sure to read the other reviews and understand the practicalities of staying at a remote "eco" resort. Dirt road, soap & TP restrictions, stairs and true medical help is 1.5 hr away in Nicoya are all facts to know so you are not disappointed. And also there are... More

Blue Spirit is truly a sanctuary. The staff is warm and friendly; the location is beautiful; the food is exceptional; the attention to environmental concerns is unparalleled. Go! (Note - (1) leave your usual shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and other soaps at home; the eco-conscious setup only allows for biodegradable products. (2) the rooms are sparsely decorated and quite warm;... More

I found a new home at Blue Spirit. Living in New York with all the hustle and busle,noise and pollution, I look forward to a place of peace and tranquility. The place that fulfilled all of my needs was Blue Spirit. For the last 3 years, I looked forward to spend my winter months at Blue Spirit in Costa Rica.... More

We finally arrived at Blue Spirit after 2 days of travel. They arranged for our transport from the airport and we arrived mid afternoon very tired and hungry. Check in was rapid and the staff efficient in getting us situated into our room. Our first disappointment was discovering that there were no food options for guests at this hour of... More
