My trip to the Costa Rica Yoga Spa has been the most relaxing vacation of my life! Yoga, check. Sound healing, check. Breathwork, check. Beach time, check. Watching the turtles come ashore to lay their eggs was a once-in-a-lifetime experience! Chef Pedro Portes created the most delicious healthy food I've ever eaten. Proprietor Darin McBratney led us on a hike to a double waterfall. Along the way, we heard the howling monkeys, the sound of which made you feel like you were entering Jurassic Park! But there was no need to hike to see the howling monkeys - a family of three appeared just off my balcony. In the evening we all enjoyed the mountaintop view over the Pacific Ocean. This will be a trip I remember the rest of my life. Can't wait to go back!

I arrived back to Nosara on a business trip - or so it can be called.

Upon arriving I was quite overwhelmed by the importance and weight of the trip, as well as by other personal matters. A few days in, breathing nature and enjoying some angelical food made by their dear chef Pedro and all tension was eased and I was boosted with confidence - a lovely place indeed.

Lovely staff. Quite peaceful. A treat.

the whole place is just amazing, the setting on the mountain, the views from the restaurant, the animals that come and visit, hummingbirds, butterflies, big birds flying by….The material that the dance space is built with, the bridge towards the garden, such a powerful place.

Room tip: rooms on top floor have better views

Costa Rica Yoga Spa is the perfect spot to go when you need some nice quiet time and rejuvenation. The managers, Victor and Virginia went above and beyond to make sure that all my needs were met during the visit. The giant circular yoga deck has an ocean view from high up on the mountain. The room I had was fit for a queen, the bed was one of the most comfortable I ever slept on. The food, well that is just OUTSTANDING! The chef a Costa Rican native named Pedro filled my belly and soul with so much LOVE! He can practically tell what you need to eat just by looking at you. I wish I could hire him to cook for me all the time! I will definitely be returning to this magical jungle spot in the future!

Thank you so much for your kind and good words. It was our pleasure to have you here, your fire hula hoop dance is uncanny and we enjoyed it so much.

We are glad that you felt welcomed and loved by Pedro's amazing food.

We wil be happy to have you here anytime, visit us soon again.

Have a great time in Santa Teresa!

Attended excellent ‘respirited retreat’ for women’s leadership which was held at this facility. Rooms fine (except had to be careful when ‘housekeeping ants’ decided they were travelling through your room) and had no hot water for first 3 days (but amazing what you can get used to). Small pool was welcome in the heat. Food EXCELLENT. No walking access to town or beach.

Hello Michelle!

We live in the middle of the jungle, and having animals around us will be always something to be aware. We love being surrounded by the howling monkeys and beautiful butterflies.

Sorry to hear you were not able to enjoy hot water for 3 days, I wish I was there to explain you how to run the hot water, it just takes a couple more minutes than usual to heat.

I'm glad you had Pedro's amazing food. We love his creations and the cuisine.

Thank you for your words and rating, we will get better!
