Live the Magic

Since 1993, Mystica has been opening its doors offering comfort, yoga, healing, taste, art, sports and adventures, and hosting yoga retreats from all over the world in a spectacular location in the heart of Costa Rica. This magical Oasis rises on a hill in the lush valley overlooking the vast Arenal Lake and impressive, active Volcano. The magnificent view is breathtaking for the eyes and the soul.

Discovering Mystica, you will be surrounded by beautiful fruit trees and exotic flowers leading you to the organic garden, the natural pool, the tree-house healing space, and the sanctuary by the river. Relax in the hammocks, let stresses dissolve as you receive a massage, and wake up to the powerful practice of Yoga.

Entering the restaurant, your senses will be awakened by the vibrant colours, the fragrance of Mediterranean cuisine, and the enchanting music. Your comfortable room, in the main lodge, private villa, or two-bedroom home, will await you with a cozy and fresh atmosphere.

Mystica offers you a chance to remain connected to the outside world through wi-fi internet access (available only in the reception area and restaurant), and also invites to you go deep in your inner world, connecting with Nature and with yourself in ways that are meaningful and life-changing. We love to host group retreats and yoga retreats coming to Costa Rica from all over the world to combine Yoga with Healing and Adventure. We are also happy to host you as a hotel guest, making Mystica your home-base while you enjoy windsurfing, mountain biking, kitesurfing, explore hot springs, waterfalls, jungle canopy tours, and discover the beauty of Costa Rica.

It is our joy to share with you the wonderful energy of Mystica, a piece of heaven on Earth. We warmly welcome you to come and... Live the Magic!

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
