Everyone is so kind and down to earth and makes you feel like family. I was there with a group of about 20 on a retreat and everything was... More

We were made to feel right at home and part of the "family" at Vida Asana. I live in Hawaii, but have always had a special place in my heart for Costa Rica, but this was by far my favorite trip here. They went above and beyond to give us an incredible, zen, and soulful Costa Rica Experience. The food... More

Vida Asana is a very welcoming, family owned and operated Eco-resort. Sean the owner is there on site and very involved in the day to day activities. He ensured everything ran smooth and all needs and wants were quickly taken care of, above and beyond expectation. If you don't see it on the website, just ask, he makes it happen.... More

My husband and I, my sister and brother in law, visited Costa Rica in February 2015. We have traveled many places together, and with both couples coming from cold areas thought Costa Rica would be a fun, guaranteed good weather vacation. It was so much more than that! We stayed at Vida Asana - Eco Lodge and Yoga Retreat. It... More

To be honest, I was a bit scared to travel to another country all by myself. But Jamie Woods with Sanga Retreats made it simple and clear. The coordination was perfect! When I arrived to Vida Asana, Sean and his wife Jessica made us feel welcomed. Their beautiful baby Juju was the life of the party. I absolutely appreciate Sean... More

Let me start by saying I had never been to Costa Rica, and this was the first Yoga retreat that I was helping to lead, so I had no Idea what to expect. After arriving in San Jose, we were shuttled by Vida Asana to the Eco Lodge. It is about an hour and a half drive to get there... More
