Commune with nature in all its forms (sea, jungle, river, tropical plants and birds), Pura Vida Wellness Retreat is rustic but clean and comfortable. The accommodation is designed in modern Mexican palapa style, with all comforts, including hot showers, mosquito nets, safe boxes, LED lights, hammocks, etc. Right now there are eight cabins, which when shared can sleep 20 or more persons.
The cabins are located in a jungle and tropical garden situated on the hill just at the ocean shore. All cabins are spacious and individually designed. All lighting is soft white LED (energy saving and good for your eyes and health). They are walled from three sides and open in the front, offering amazing jungle and ocean views, security and privacy, and fresh unpolluted air.
Most of the cabins have breathtaking views of the ocean and Yelapa bay. You may enjoy the ocean view right from your bed or from a terrace. Each cabin has one to two queen-size beds (organic metal-free mattresses and hypoallergenic or goose down pillows) with mosquito nets. There is also a very spacious cabin with a loft (two queen-size beds downstairs and two upstairs).
Each cabin has a private bathroom (some with ocean views). They are furnished with authentic Mexican furniture and artifacts selected individually for each cabin to offer a very unique look and feel. There is also one fully enclosed cabin with air conditioning. Pure Vida Wellness Retreat is mostly EMF-free. There is Wi-Fi limited to certain hours in the common area.
There are spots on the property where you can get cellular reception. You are also welcome to walk on the paths and explore the exotic park with many quiet places to meditate, do yoga, get a massage, hang out at the meeting places, explore healthy vegetarian and Mexican cuisine at the restaurant or just enjoy the amazing views.
There is also spiritual cinema to enjoy inspirational movies or documentaries shown on a big projection screen in the evening. For cleansing and spiritual rejuvenation, they offer a temazcal which is a type of sweat lodge used traditionally by pre-Hispanic indigenous peoples of Mexico. For meditative Vipassana walks, there is a labyrinth in the Zen garden.
You will also find a way to enjoy your aloneness on meditation decks on the rocks by the ocean. To ensure your meditative retreat experience, loud music or alcohol at the property is not allowed.
