I scheduled this trip for the rainy season about 9 months ago thinking it would be less insane and it was. The rain never really came. The Sangria was flowing. The staff was the best I have ever experienced. The town offers a lot to do in a short time when it comes to site seeing excursions and such. The views from this location is unlike anything I could imagine. Long drive out there but the taxi drivers that the hotel partnered with are 10 star. I left my hat in there and they washed and returned it! Miss this paradise already and would definitely recommend for any avid travler.

I’m a yoga teacher and this is my 3rd year staying at Vista Celestial while hosting a yoga retreat, and I am already planning a trip next year! The views are amazing and the staff is incredible. The staff prides themselves on making sure you are happy! If you want to do an excursion but aren’t sure what to do, ask Issac, he always has fabulous ideas. Edgardo, Juan, Gustavo and Ronaldo will make sure you have everything that you need (and they all make tasty cocktails). Fabian and Alberto are amazing chefs and will cater to whatever your dietary needs are. I can’t emphasize enough how much the staff looks out for you. For example, one of my students wanted to see a sloth. Edgardo spent everyday with his binoculars out looking for one. On one of our last days, he spotted one and found my student to show her! Another day, a few of us wanted to go on a hike and we didn’t feel comfortable going by ourselves, so Gustavo stepped in and took us on a great hike in the jungle. One day, an excursion got cancelled due to weather, and Issac instantly came up with a fabulous alternative plan that everyone was happy with. (Ps, Issac is also an amazing Bird Watcher and can identify just about anything). One last story! We wanted to have a beach picnic one day. So Juan and Ronaldo pitched in and took us, they stayed with us so they could watch our belongings while we swam and walked the beach. I could go on and on with story after story. Visit for the views, stay and relax because of the staff. Either way, it’s my favorite trip every year.

We just returned from a great yoga retreat at Vista Celestial in Uvita, Costa Rica. While we did yoga twice a day, we went white water rafting, played and swam in the ocean, hiked to a waterfall and went swimming, did wildlife and bird watching and had a great cooking lesson given by the chef at Vista Celestial. Everything was arranged by the fantastic staff at Vista Celestial. Isaac, Edgardo, Estaban and all the staff took care of our every wish and even anticipated what we would like. We were served wonderful meals that were prepared with Love and served with Love. Our group of ten people had a fabulous experience and many of us will be returning next year.

We spent two nights in the hotel (two adults and 2 children of 14 and 16). The villas provide an exceptional view and great comfort. The personnel provides outstanding service and is willing to do the little bit of extra that makes a real difference. Thanks!
