This retreat will take place at Blue Spirit located on the Southern end of Guiones Beach in Nosara, on the Northern Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. Blue Spirit Costa Rica is remote, yet easily accessible. Once you arrive, you will find yourself worlds away in a region renowned for its spectacular scenery, excellent restaurants, local cultural events, and an international community that gives the region a vibrantly creative and peaceful atmosphere.
Blue Spirit overlooks the Pacific Ocean and has a three-mile long white sand beach, which is a turtle preserve. This extraordinary setting will provide you a deeply nurturing and unforgettable experience. The pristine nature, subtropical climate, dedicated staff, and the healing energy of the Nosara community create the ideal environment for your retreat, workshop, or training to be an unforgettable and deeply nurturing experience.
Costa Rica has 2 airports, San Jose International Airport (SJC) and Liberia International Airport (LIR). San Jose International Airport (SJC) is about a five-hour drive or one-hour charter flight from Playa Guiones, while from Liberia International Airport (LIR) takes about a two and half hour drive.
"The trip was nourishing at all levels from the physical layer to the blissful core. Blue Spirit, Costa Rica, the howling monkeys, the food, the ocean, yoga with sunrise and sunset, the energy and community are all lovingly interwoven by Kia and Tommy, and the amazing music of Aykana."
