Bliss, Balance and Beach 8-Day Costa Rica Retreat

About us

Why simply vacation, when you can ignite, thrive and shine? Firefly invites you to join us for our third Bliss, Balance and Beach Yoga Retreat at Blue Spirit in beautiful Nosara, Costa Rica. Step away from the daily grind to ignite your soul with a week of bliss on the beach in one of the world's Blue Zones. Disconnect from your day-to-day life to find balance. Nourish your body and spirit with nutritious food and daily yoga appropriate for all levels. Acquire tools and resources to transform your life. Relax into the “Pura Vida” lifestyle of Costa Rica. There will be opportunity to fulfill your sense of adventure with optional excursions and activities such as Stand Up Paddleboarding. Enrich your experience with service (seva) to support the local community, or choose to simply enjoy some R&R by the sea.

This retreat is perfect for those who are feeling stuck or at a cross-road in life. A change of scenery can help you to tap into your passion and purpose. The setting is perfect for re-discovering your true self. There will be opportunities for time alone to reflect, as well as shared experiences with the group to connect with your fellow travelers. 

I literally just had one of the best weeks of my life! Thank you for your guidance and support throughout this journey! Thank you Thank you!! Becky, yoga retreat participant Carrie

Venue Highlights

Blue Spirit provides an extraordinary setting to all who are dedicated to personal development and environmental sustainability. Perched on a hilltop that overlooks the Pacific Ocean and a three-mile long white sand beach that is protected as a turtle refuge – Blue Spirit offers an extraordinarily beautiful and natural setting on one of Costa Rica’s renowned beaches, supporting a deeply nurturing and unforgettable experience. The north and mid sections of Guiones beach offer great surfing to beginners and advanced alike. Blue Spirit is located at the quiet South end of the beach, where swimming is easy, thanks to the gentle current. The 700 foot walk (220 meters) from Blue Spirit to the beach transverses lush grounds full of mango trees and coconut palms.

The daily lunch and dinner buffet includes a Pure Food Option, which offers greens, grains, and legumes without oils or seasonings. We purchase the food from local farmers and organic produce when available.

Accommodations

The Mountain View room has a step-out balcony and large windows with an extraordinary mountain view. The room is tastefully furnished and provides the perfect space for two people. It has a king-sized bed or two twins, with a private bathroom with solar hot water and air conditioning.

If you desire more privacy, Nature Suites are very cozy and located on a hillside overlooking the lush vegetation. They are natural wood frame structures and have private bathrooms with an outdoor shower overlooking the jungle. Each Suite sleeps two people and includes a separate enclosed porch with a desk. All Suites have solar hot water as well as air conditioning. The Suites are a short walk up the hill to the Main Building.

Directions

It's best to fly into the Daniel Oduber Quiros International Airport in Liberia Costa Rica and take the Blue Spirit shuttle ($60 each way) that takes approximately 2-2.5 hours. The shuttle is offered on Saturdays. You may also fly into San Jose and take a domestic flight to Nosara, or a 5 hour shuttle/taxi.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Mind training for post-retreat life! Renate

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.
