The yoga class we took was solid and the instructor was nice and accommodating, but the setting was a bit tough, given it’s proximity to the street.

The street noise was quite loud and distracting making it hard to hear the teacher.

The class is $15 USD, but other places we found only charge $6.50.

Thanks so much for your feedback. Because of our central location, we don't have much contorl over the street noise. It comes and goes and we are planning on doing what we can to erect a solid wall to mitiigate it. As far as our pricing, it actualluy is quite competetive with other classes offered in town. Not sure where you found a yoga class for $6.50 but it likely was an illegal pop up operation. One thing to note is that we are a legally registered business here and pay taxes in Costa Rica, unlike many other instructors who are teaching yoga on the beach (using public space for free) and not contributing to the common good of the country. Always good to do some research on how your dollars are supporting (or not) the country in which you are travelling.

Had a luxurious and relaxing facial at Alma Tranquilla with Michelle. It was my birthday present to myself and it was worth every moment.

The treatment rooms are adorable and comfortable. The products are gorgeous, handmade and natural. The facial was refreshing and made my skin glow.

Beautiful, quiet property, easy to locate and very chill vibe.

Pura Vida!

I cannot say enough good things about my experience at Alma and with Michele. She is sweet, welcoming, and knowledgeable. I felt relaxed during my entire spa experience and would definitely go back

I go to Michele every few weeks for waxes and she is AWESOME! She makes me feel so comfortable. She always responds in a timely matter, and is very flexible with appointments to work around my busy schedule. I highly recommend her for any kind of waxing treatment, its definitely the best waxing experience I've had!

I have been going to Michele for waxing since I have lived in Samara. She makes booking appointments seamless, as she always responds via Facebook within the same day that I message her. Additionally, she has stuck around after closing when there was one time I mixed up the date of my appointment. Michele does an excellent job, has top-end supplies, and I thoroughly enjoy her company. Alma Tranquila Massage is located conveniently in the center of Samara. I highly recommend for a waxing treatment and when the day comes for me to get a massage, I will be contacting her as well.

A colleague recommended Alma Tranquila and I sent a message on Facebook to schedule a wax. Michele responded very quickly and booked me for that weekend. The rooms were clean & comfortable, & Michele was both friendly & professional. Highly recommend!
