"Amazing people at an amazing place"
Everyone at Vida Asana is kind, helpful, and on an interesting life journey. Even if you ended up at Vida Asana alone, with no other guests, the staff are more than accessible and friendly. We spent several hours chatting with the owner, Sean and coordinator, Frank. It truly is a special place. And it helps that the food is always fresh and delicious.

"Everything and more"
I liked how welcoming everyone was! Everyone introduced themselves and made you feel right at home and comfortable. Everyone being the staff and the guests! The staff were so kind, encouraging, happy, and really did all that they can to make your stay perfect for you. Not only did the staff work hard to give you the best time but also were super personal and you could have meaningful and deep conversations with them. It was really special.

This was my first yoga retreat - novice to yoga. I was welcomed with open arms from the second I walked in. You are sorrounded by nature, amazing food, bicycles on property to ride along the beach. Sean, Frank and Rachel make you feel like part of the Asana Family. It was much more than I expected and would recommend to anyone looking to escape, disconnect and reflect. I look forward to going back!

"Recommend to anyone!"
The food that Adriana makes is totally amazing!! So much flavor you won’t even realize you’re eating vegan. Frank is very organized and is exceptional at getting any and all activities scheduled for you.
Alexis has made an impressive garden and if you go, ask him for a little tour.
Sean has a big heart and it’s very apparent. I hope to see you all again! :)

"Didn't want to leave"
Vida Asana is a welcoming, comfortable environment. The room was clean, and the grounds were well kept. There were places to go off and be by myself or hang out with others if I wanted. Everything was very laid back and relaxing. Sean is extremely helpful and facilitated whatever activities I wanted to do. Everyone there was warm and friendly. The food was delicious and plentiful.

"Vida Asana Amazing"
This place was everything that I was looking for and more. I booked it while on a 3 month vacation in Costa Rica and I didn't want to leave. The owners were amazing, helpful and made me feel a part of their family. The food was excellent. So much nutritious food to eat and beautiful coffee to drink. I went surfing, yoga, the sweat lodge, biking, hiking, Rainmaker and also had a great night of live music in Playa Hermosa. They were all about the details to even the nicest soaps for the shower. for the five nights I was there, I was relaxed, rejuvenated and inspired.
