About this trip

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. When we take the time to step outside of our daily routine and immerse ourselves in another world, we learn, grow, and awaken to a deeper appreciation of our lives. Immerse yourself in paradise and see what is revealed!  


Join us for a week long journey into the jungles of Costa Rica. The Mystica Lodge & Retreat is an oasis in the heart of the country, overlooking Lake Arenal and the Arenal Volcano. Join us for daily power and gentle yoga classes and take advantage of the full spa amenities on site. The package includes excursions to hanging bridges, waterfalls, hot springs, and a day to explore the local area with a knowledgeable guide. We'll cap everything off with a sunset catamaran cruise on Lake Arenal! Bring your appetite, Mystica boasts an incredible variety of food, from typical Costa Rican meals to traditional Italian pizzas made in their wood burning brick oven.

Additional Travel Information

Note that shuttle service to and from Liberia Airport is included in the package. That being said, it is typically significantly more expensive to fly into Liberia Airport. As an alternative, many of us will be flying into San Jose Airport and taking a shuttle to and from San Jose. Shuttle service is $200 per shuttle each way, so more passengers makes for a less expensive ride. The shuttles are air conditioned and have Wi-Fi.  You may even elect to arrive a day early and spend the first night in San Jose. While this is not included in the package we can make recommendations for a nice hotel in the city.

So fantastic! Stayed in Ramsada with friends and it was gorgeous and comfy. The resort really felt like staying with family that fed you better than you can ever expect and is more patient with you than family would ever be :). It was high enough that there was a constant breeze - so though it was in the 80's, it felt really nice all of the time. The whole place is like a gorgeous garden you get to walk through - and walking to optional yoga classes morning and night was a great start and end to my day. We had mosquito bands, but I think it was windy enough that they weren't needed. Oh, weirdly my favorite part is that they have really good water from their well, which they put into wine bottles that you can grab from their fridge any time you want. As a water fiend, I admit this was really awesome for me. We also went on a few adventures offered out the resort - and those were amazing. I think the 'warnings' I'd give people - it's going to rain every day, and you want it to. Makes it nice and cool. If you are going for a full yoga retreat, bring your own mat if you are picky. These are fine for 2 classes a day, but I"m pretty pick,y so I would bring my own if there were more classes. Don't stock up on bottled water - you really don't need it :D. They only have a few types of beer, and they are local and tasty. If you need more than that, grab it on the way and put it in the fridge. Also, no hard liquor at this resort - it's not the sort with a bar. Though my husband LOVED the house red wine. I really recommend it - such a wonderful time.
