Blue Spirit Costa Rica provides an extraordinary setting to all who are dedicated to spiritual transformation, personal development, and environmental sustainability. Perched on a hilltop that overlooks the Pacific Ocean and a three-mile long white sand beach that is protected as a turtle refuge – Blue Spirit offers an extraordinarily beautiful and natural setting on one of Costa Rica’s renowned beaches, supporting your retreats, workshops, and trainings to be a deeply nurturing and unforgettable experience.Blue Spirit is located in one of the world’s Blue Zones© which inspired the name Blue Spirit. According to author Dan Buettner, the Nicoya Peninsula is one of five Blue Zone’s in the world: a Blue Zone is an area where people live the longest and report the highest levels of well-being. While visiting Blue Spirit, you will feel the resonance of a vibrant, inspiring, and healing energy, because of the rich subtropical environment, and the cultural lifestyle.Your stay at Blue Spirit offers you a comfortable and elegant accommodation of your choice, delicious gourmet vegetarian cuisine, a salt-water infinity pool, koi pond, café, gift shop, spa and longevity services, outdoor excursions, and complimentary wireless service.Blue Spirit was founded by Stephan Rechtschaffen who also co-founded the renowned Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY. He is a nationally recognized holistic physician who lectures on health, wellness, nutrition, longevity, and time. These interests have drawn him to living and working in the more mindful and slower paced environment of Blue Spirit in Costa Rica.

This was my fourth visit to Blue Spirit over the past 10 years and it continues to evolve. While most reviewers talk about "transformative experiences," what draws me here are the teachers that Blue Spirit attracts, not the property itself. But the property is lovely with lots

Thank you TrishaMD!!! We love hearing of your return trips not 2, or 3, but 4 times! How great. Yes! We are very proud of the faculty that we draw here. Amazing instructors, speakers, authors from all around the world that are dedicated to delivering top notch programs. Our suggested gratuity fee for staff have been well received with our guests to take the guess work out of it for you and is distributed amongst the staff (kitchen staff, grounds keeper, housekeeping, etc…) Also, we offer regular lower cost shuttles back and forth the LIR airport - but for those booking outside our regular shuttle times - then the private taxis hired are more expensive. We have so many wellness offerings and a varied range of therapists to suit any ones desires. Thank you again for your thorough review and for sharing all of your insight. We look forward to serving you again.

The Nature Cottage was comfortable and lovely, nestled in nature. I loved waking up and starting my day rinsing off in my outdoor bamboo shower...listening to the howler monkeys, and looking up at the tropical plants and taking in the wonderful smells! The organic vegetarian

Thank you Fruglo for sharing your experience and helpful tips for future guests. To share with others in more detail which room type you were in- visit: https://bluespiritcostarica.com/rooms/mountain-view-with-a-c/ We understand everyone has a unique palate and we do try very hard to please all of our guests with a variety of menu items that change daily. The amount charged for tips is mentioned during our Welcome Orientation Meeting that we have with every group. We do this charge to take the guess work out of it for you, so that you don’t need to be giving tips for services during your stay - it’s a suggested amount that you can choose to lower or make higher. We do this so all staff equally split the benefit of gratuities. This tip stipend is dispersed amongst our entire staff that cleans your room, cooks your food, and helps to keep the grounds beautiful. The distance from the Liberia Airport to Blue Spirit is listed in further detail here: https://bluespiritcostarica.com/shuttle-reservations/ So sorry to hear you experienced motion sickness! Happily we haven’t heard this from guests before and yours is a rare experience. We do provide wine for sale in our Cafe so bringing your own is not necessary. To view more about our amenties please go here: https://bluespiritcostarica.com/stay/amenities/ Yes we agree that sunset is a must see! Ear plugs are a good tip- but we would also recommend experiencing the howler monkeys at least once to really take in the nature surrounding you and the magic of the jungle. We accept US$ and CR colones as a payment method. We are happy to hear you had a relaxing and refreshing time and hope you come visit us again. With love from the Staff at Blue Spirit, Pura Vida.
