It was a wonderful time. Great all natural homemade food. The side trips were fantastic! Saw so many different animals and experiences. I've been having balance issues and Stacy gave me great advice and practical ways to help ME! Other guests were very nice and friendly. I would recommend this retreat to anyone and I would like to return!!
By Linda S for 7 Day Deepen Your Practice Yoga Retreat in Costa Rica on May 27, 2024
The grounds of the retreat are lush with tropical flora, rooms very comfortable, food is creative and vegetarian, Stacey is a knowledgeable and enthusiastic yoga instructor, the area of Cahuita feels friendly and safe. Stacey and Marc provide a restful space to re-energize and unwind. This was my second trip and I would definitely recommend Casa Firefly to anyone that was interested in a week of wellness in an environment teaming with the local flora and fauna (sloths, toucans, exotic birds, agouti, dart frogs and more). I felt more fit, peaceful and overall healthier than before I arrived.
