Experience the Power of Meditation in Nature’s Lap at Pura Vida Retreat and Spa

Power of Meditation in Nature's Lap at Pura Vida Retreat and Spa

Welcome to the tranquil charm of Pura Vida Retreat and Spa, one of the premier resorts in San Jose, Costa Rica. Nestled amidst the breathtaking panorama of verdant landscapes, this oasis offers more than just a vacation – it’s where you reconnect with your inner self and embrace the healing power of nature.

Our guests, many of whom return each year, often compare their stay to coming home, setting aside a week for restorative self-care under the guidance of their favorite retreat leader. While the focus here is not on luxury or state-of-the-art facilities, the appeal of Pura Vida lies in the simple, rustic setting, the warmth and dedication of our staff, the expertise of our spa therapists, and the nourishing, albeit non-organic, cuisine that fuels your body and soul.

Join us on a transformative journey at our renowned yoga retreat in Costa Rica, where you’ll find comfort, healing, and rejuvenation in the lap of nature.
