Know before you go!

Flight Info: We suggest flying into Liberia International Airport, we reckoned Southwest because you get two free carryins. Please plan to land sometime before 2pm to give ample time for checking in before our initial session. We reccomend handeling your own luggage at the airport, there are luggage porters that do not work for the airport that will expect a tip if they assist you. Upon your flight booking, please send us your flight numbers so we are aware of when you will be arriving and departing! Please note that Blue Spirit can accommodate guests who would like to stay a few days before or after the retreat, but these bookings must be made through Blue Spirit directly. 


Shuttle info: Upon your arrival to Liberia airport, Blue Spirit is able to transport you directly to the retreat center for a fee of $60. It is about a 2 hour ride. We highly suggest booking through Blue Spirit https://bluespiritcostarica.com as it is THE safest and simplest way to get to the retreat center. You can book your shuttle and read more info here


Check In & Check Out Times: Check-in is at 4pm. Check-out is at 10am. You may store your luggage at the front desk. 


Visas, immunizations, & travel insurance: Costa Rica does not require Visas for US or Canadian travels who are planning to stay for less than 90-days, so no need to worry about the Visa process. We do, however, suggest you purchase travel insurance to cover your trip in case you have to make a last minute cancellation. We recommend visiting a travel clinic for up-to-date information on immunizations and medicine while you are abroad. If you are not from the US or Canada, we suggest looking into the Visa policy specific to your country. 


Medical Services in Nosara: From a general health perspective, Costa Rica has high health standards in the entire country and is considered one of the safest destinations in the developing world. If you have a healthcare provider in the country of your origin, you may want to inquire before your travels about their coverage policy, when traveling to Costa Rica. English speaking doctors have offices 15 minutes from Blue Spirit, along with dentists.A hospital is located within a 45 minutes drive in Nicoya, or for serious conditions, an airlift is available to a hospital with excellent and Western standard medical care in the capital of San Jose within 45 minutes.Typically, from US, Canada or EU there are no shots require, for others, please check Costa Rica's requirements for your country.  


Passport: Be sure your passport isn’t due to expire for at least 6 months AFTER your travel date. If you need to renew your passport, do so sooner rather than later.


Money: Any extra spending while being at Blue Spirit (i.e. for activities organized through our reception desk, like surf lessons, horseback riding, canopy tours, or Wellness services) and any consumption at our Café-Library can be charged on your credit card. Therefore we recommend not bringing too much extra cash from home (a maximum of US $500 should be sufficient). The US Dollar is widely accepted in Costa Rica, so exchanging US Dollars to Costa Rica Colones is not necessary. Smaller denominations of $20 or less are easiest to cash. The exchange rate is approximately 600 Colones per US Dollar.There is an ATM machine and bank, which is a 10-minute drive from Blue Spirit. The ATM and Bank only accept VISA Cards and disperse Costa Rica Colones.  


Time Zone: Costa Rica is on Central Standard Time, six hours behind Greenwich Mean Time and one hour behind EST in the States. It does not use daylight saving time – which means that when there is daylight saving time in the US, then Costa Rica is on MST (2 hours behind EST). 


Activities and Excursions: The Front Desk is glad to assist you in organizing Surf-Lessons, Horseback-Riding, Turtle Nesting Tour, Canopy Adventures, River Boat Tour (Bird watching), River Kayaking, or Stand-Up-Paddle-Surf. Payments can be made in cash or with a credit card at the reception desk. 


Blue Spirit Store: Should you forget essential items at home or are looking for some snack foods, books to read, gift items, clothing, or souvenirs - the Blue Spirit Store offers a wide array of goods to purchase. You can pay cash (US$, Costa Rican Colones) or with a credit card.  Check out the hotel here :

Beyond the Beach...
Our “Beyond the Beach…” retreat will be a beautiful yogic Costa Rican journey to your true inner self. We will take this opportunity to step away from our compartmentalized lives to quiet our mind, rejuvenate our body and restore our spirit. We will experience a variety of yoga lineages as we practice and meditate briefly together daily, eat healthy organic meals and bask in the Costa Rican sun and Blue Zone environment. You deserve this!
