8 Day Reclaiming the Sacred Self - Women's Wellness Beach Retreat in Guanacaste

Blue Spirit Costa Rica, Guiones Sur, Playa Guiones, Nosara, Guanacaste, Costa Rica

Transformational Journey in Costa Rica

Seeking Sacred Journeys invites you to join them at the world-renowned Blue Spirit retreat center, a lush, natural, tropical paradise in Costa Rica on the Pacific Ocean.

Imagine a week in a high vibrational 'Blue Zone', perched on a hillside overlooking 3 miles of white sandy beach (a protected turtle sanctuary) and the Pacific Ocean.

You’ll luxuriate and soak in the sacred energy of this incredible, breathtaking location and fall asleep to the sound of the ocean waves and howler monkeys in the distance.

Pamper yourself with spa treatments and healthy, gourmet meals.

Learn to surf. Ride a horse on the beach or hike to a nearby waterfall or lie on the beach all day.

You’ll meet a small group of incredibly amazing women and leave with life long best friends. They’ll get you. They’ll support you. And they won’t judge. Not even a little bit.

You’ll re-set your nervous system, breathe deeply and smile as you mean it (maybe, for the first time in ages).

You’ll be guided by expert facilitators whose sole focus is on you, your needs and helping you rejuvenate, realign and reclaim.

This is not your ordinary vacation. This is a necessity of self-care - of health and well-being, of reclaiming your soul essence and nurturing your body, mind and spirit.

Things to do (optional)

There is so much you can enjoy near Blue Spirit when you are not in your yoga, break-out session, or meditation class. There are fabulous activities for guests who like to venture further! Once you arrive at Blue Spirit Costa Rica, the front desk staff is more than happy to assist you in booking your preferred excursions.

Canopy tour

Experience the most exhilarating canopy tour in the unequaled beauty of a Costa Rica forest wilderness. This canopy tour is the longest canopy tour in the world! Traversing majestic mountain ridges and valleys, soaring high above multiple ravines, with breathtaking vistas of rivers, waterfalls, and the Pacific Ocean. Suitable for nature lovers, adventurers, families, and all who wish to experience the ultimate canopy tour adventure.

Horseback riding

Get close to nature and enjoy a morning or romantic sunset ride along Guiones and Garza beach. All horses of the 'Mis Amores' stable are well trained, healthy, young, and great for riders of any experience level.

Surf lessons

Guiones Beach is famous for its safe and exceptional surfing conditions. The super friendly native instructors are experts in helping beginners and advanced alike to experience the utmost joy of riding the waves. Board rental is also available.

River kayak expeditions

A naturalist’s dream, this adventure is flanked with lush green foliage, loaded with birds (up to 30 different species), and an occasional crocodile, all along the rivers with tropical scenery. The jungle rivers of the Nosara area and nature photo opportunities will boggle your mind.

Stand up paddle surf

This emerging global sport is like walking on water. Unlike surfing, stand up paddle surf is very easy to learn, but provides a good core workout. Within one hour, the instructor will make you feel comfortable on your board and you’ll enjoy being out on the ocean!

Waterfall hike

This tour begins with a 45-minute hike that involves crossing a creek a half dozen times, traversing a cattle farm, and weaving through a primary canopy of tropical dry forest. Stop along the way to discover the sights, sound, and smell of everything around you before discovering a series of brilliant swimming holes and small waterfalls, each cascading from one to another.

Spa treatments

Whether your tissues are holding some core tensions, or you’d like some sound advice on your nutrition, wish to transform a painful relationship issue, or are simply in the mood to be pampered with a tropical body polish or a luscious facial treatment - all Blue Spirit Costa Rica bodyworkers, therapists, and counselors are highly qualified, excel in what they do, and enjoy being of service.

All spa and wellness services must be booked after check-in at the front desk, comfortably charged to the room folio and paid for when you check out.

How to get there

Recommended Airports

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flight to arrive at Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport (LIR) or Juan Santamaría International Airport (SJO). Both airports have frequent flights to and from all over the United States and Canada.

We recommend that you fly into LIR Airport, which has been recently expanded with increased numbers of flights from the US and Canada. It is only a two and a half-hour scenic drive from Blue Spirit Costa Rica and has become a destination of many non-stop flights from several US cities (New York, Miami, Atlanta, Denver, and Houston).

Flying to SJO Airport is also an option as sometimes flights from the US, Canada, or other parts of the world are less expensive or more direct than flying into LIR Airport. Getting to Blue Spirit from SJO Airport by ground transportation, however, is more costly, and can take 4.5 hours.

An alternative option is to take a 40-minute short domestic flight from / to San Jose International Airport to / from the local Nosara Airport (only a 20-minute drive from Blue Spirit).

Please note that transfers to and from Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport (LIR) are included. Blue Spirit will pick you up from the airport. For all group shuttle services, you will need to make advanced reservations. Blue Spirit group shuttles run on Saturdays only several times during the day from / to LIR Airport. Saturdays are the arrival and departure days of the programs. It is a scenic 2.5 hours' drive. Based on the arrival times of all major airlines, the shuttle pickups are between 12 p.m. and 4 p.m. for flights arriving at midday and early afternoon, and between 7 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. for all flights arriving in the evening. This means that if you have reserved a seat on a group shuttle, and your flight is arriving in any of these two mentioned time periods, a Blue Spirit group shuttle will be waiting for you outside of the arrivals terminal.

For your departure from Blue Spirit, there are several group shuttle services each Saturday to LIR Airport: 3:00 a.m., 4:00 a.m., 8:30 a.m., 9:00 a.m., 10:00 a.m., and 11:00 a.m. You should plan to be at the airport two hours before your flight’s departure.
