The Costa Rica Yoga Spa is located on the mountain of a private ranch in Nosara, Guanacaste on the gold coast of Costa Rica. This boutique resort and retreat center looks out on both the Pacific Ocean and Ostional National Wildlife Park, where hundreds of thousands of Olive Ridley turtles come to nest and a wide variety of birds call home.

Driving directions from Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport (LIR)

  • Take a right on to the main highway. Drive about an hour keeping on the same road. You will pass through the towns of Filedelfia, Belen, and Santa Cruz. After Santa Cruz, you will see signs for Nicoya. Take a right into Nicoya.
  • ​Once in Nicoya, continue straight down the main road until you are forced to make a right. Make your first left and continue right through the center of town.
  • When it ends, make a left and then your next right (at its end). You'll stay on this road for nearly 30 kilometers. You will encounter several turns along the way, but just stay on the main road. If you are in doubt, look for signs pointing to either Nosara or Samara.
  • Be aware for speed bumps and pot holes, pedestrians, bicycles, dogs, and numerous other obstacles along the way. You'll need to pay attention.
  • All of the bridges along this stretch of highway are wide enough for only one vehicle at a time. There will be a Ceda (yield) sign on one side of every bridge. If you have a Ceda sign and there are cars coming the other direction, pull aside and let oncoming traffic through.
  • After driving about 30 to 40 minutes, you'll see a gas station on your left. Immediately after the gas station, the main road turns to the left and you'll see a sign for Nosara on your right. Slow down and turn onto this road. From here, you've got about 25 kilometers on a gravel road.
  • The road is occasionally graded, so depending on its condition the drive should take between 45 minutes and one and a half hours. During dry season, it can be very dusty. If you see locals walking or riding a horse along the way, slow down to avoid covering them in your dust.
  • After about 10 kilometers, the road comes to a T intersection where you'll see signs for Nosara. Turn right and continue on your way. When you reach Playa Garza, you are at the beach! This is a beautiful spot, and a great place to take a rest if you need one. Otherwise, continue on over a hill and down to Playa Guiones.
  • You will come into Playa Guiones and see businesses like Coconut Harry’s Surf Shop and National Car Rental. The employees at National are very friendly and know Costa Rica Yoga Spa well so if you are lost or need to call them, you can certainly ask them for help.
  • You are still a bit south of Nosara at this point. After a few more kilometers, you'll see signs for Playa Pelada, continue straight ahead towards the village of Nosara. *On the right hand side you will see a large gas station, take your next left, a half mile after the gas station. You will see a sign for Ostional or Playa Ostional and also a sign for Costa Rica Yoga Spa. Continue on this road.
  • You will cross a bridge and take a right immediately after the bridge. You will see a sign for Costa Rica Yoga Spa here as well. Follow this road until you come to another “T”, take a left there.
  • About 400 meters down this road is the entrance on the right. You will see Costa Rica Yoga Spa's sign and a black iron gate and a wall with Mayan type design on it. Go up the drive on your left you will see the reception office, please stop there to check in. If it is after hours and no one is there, continue up the drive all the way to the top and follow the sign for drop off.

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flight to arrive at Nosara Airport (NOB). Transfer from and to the airport is included. Bella Retreats will pick you up from the airport. Costa Rica has two main international airports, Juan Santamaría International Airport (SJO) and Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport (LIR). If flying into Liberia, Bella Retreats recommend a ground shuttle to the Costa Rica Yoga Spa (two and a half hours). If flying into San Jose, they recommend a transfer by air to Nosara.

The Costa Rica Yoga Spa offers free local pick-up and drop-off at the airport or other hotels in Nosara.

For information about the booking conditions, please send Bella Retreats an inquiry.

    "Wendy Pabich is one of the rare speakers who is both scientist and artist. The artist side gives her the ability to connect with audiences of all knowledge levels without sacrificing scientific rigor. She is a wonderful speaker and can make water issues come alive."

    "I knew I would come into the weekend curious, a bit anxious, and mostly looking forward to what was in store. What I left with, at the end of three days of yoga, was a feeling of being refreshed, a trust that I could go back into the real world standing a bit taller in life, and lastly, a deep emotional healing. The retreat touched all my senses and emotions. Thank you, Mary Beth, for such a spiritual and inspirational weekend!"

The people who attended were such kind and supportive ladies, bonds were unavoidable. Una is light, patient, funny, and so full of spirit! If you are reading this, wondering if you should commit, dont waver! Do it! This is a gift to yourself that you will keep forever."

    "Una is an amazing facilitator, organizer and yoga instructor. She has a gift for partnering the perfect people for the perfect experience. Laura Dawn has an unparalleled understanding of how to and compliment flavors and textures. Her cuisine was the most beautiful food Ive had in a very long time. Autumn Skye, I am speechless. I have never been in the presence of a more beautiful, loving, compassionate and talented woman. I truly enjoyed the way she sees the world and her ability to translate it and communicate about it. Her voice, humor, grace and poise are an inspiration and I havent even gotten to her artistic skill yet. I arrived a beginner painter and in one week I feel that I have learned how to see the world with new eyes. Her instruction was concise and easy to understand and her command of the materials is awe inspiring. I am so grateful for the experience. It was well worth the fee. I hugely recommend this retreat and will be coming back next year. I loved everything!"

    "What an amazing opportunity. the whole self is nurtured through this retreat. Una and Laura assist with bringing the physical body into clarity and balance through yoga and fresh, live food. Assistance on the physical level really helped with my level of creativity and feeling good in my body. Autumn Skye is such a gem. her natural ability to support the paths of others is what makes her instruction really shine. Clear concise, instructions with a sense of humor really make learning from Skye such a pleasure. What a complete honor this retreat was for me. Mahalo nui loa."

    "Una, your art brought me to a place that I had been forbidden to go by other people's judgment of what I should be doing. Feeling the paint in between my fingers against the board, watching magic happen right before my eyes was such a powerful sensation that it still brings me to tears thinking about it. It unleashed so much that painting, especially with my hands, strongly calls to me and experiment without anyone's judgments. I just want to say that you've made a major difference in my world and pray that I may cross paths with you soon again."

We were both impressed with your artistic and yoga teaching talents, probably for different reasons, but that just illustrates what an amazing person and teacher you are. Thank you again for presenting the best yoga retreat I have ever been on."

    "I so enjoyed this retreat! The chakras theme is clever as it lends itself to a day-by-day focus on each chakras. Katrina has a magnetic energy I was immediately drawn to - I probably do not fit the typical yogi mold but she was open and interested in my life. I so appreciate that she made a personal connection with all of us. I learned a great deal from her and now view yoga from a new lens, knowing it is not just about a mind, body connection, but also mind, body, and spirit. Despite the touch-and-go weather, she always had a great attitude. She also really cared about whether we were enjoying ourselves and if we wanted to do any side activities, or change up the schedule. Thank you so much for a great week! Please let me know of any other retreats on the horizon!"

    "When I arrived at Mag Rock and first headed down the stone steps to the ocean I felt completely off balance. By the end of the week, I was running up and down them barefoot two at a time, feeling totally grounded, yet light on my toes. I've never felt stronger or healthier in my life after these seven amazing days! It is nice to go on a vacation with a group of friends, but going on a retreat with Lindsay and Una was a completely different and life changing experience."

She has given me real tools to work with on all levels, to really peel through the subtle layers to be the most grounded and authentically happy person that I can be. Through diet, asana, pranayama, mantra, meditation, and helping to identify what holds me back and helping me break old patterns, Katie has provided a clarity and a sense of empowerment."
