Wellbeing is at the heart of Blue Spirit’s core values and caring for our guests and staff as well. In response to COVID-19, we have developed new work procedures and mandatory trainings to ensure safety for everyone.
Our singular goal is to provide guests and employees with the confidence and assurance that their health and safety is our first priority.
With this in mind, social distancing measures are embedded for guest protection, including appropriate spacing in dining, buffet line and café. Here is a list of COVID-19 safety measures being taken.
This means people who identify as being in recovery from addictive substances or behaviors with at least 30 days of continuous sobriety at the time of application. All participants commit to avoiding the use of alcohol, tobacco, and other addictive substances during the program.
No. There is no nicotine in any form allowed on this trip. On this journey, there’s no need for nicotine.
Yes, you will want to have at least begun a practice of yoga. However, the yoga we teach, while challenging to each individual, will be accessible to practitioners at every level.
Absolutely! If you have a partner or friend who is also in recovery or who has supported you in your recovery, please ask them to apply and include your name in their application. Sharing this transformational week with someone close to you is such a gift.
Prices start at $2,000 US, with various lodging options available. Your accommodations at Blue Spirit, all of your meals (with ample vegan and GF options), all lectures, yoga, and retreat activities are included. You should not need to spend more than a few dollars in addition to this cost while staying at Blue Spirit.
Your transportation to and from Blue Spirit (air and ground), spa or excursion services, surf lessons, additional snacks, gift shop purchases and incidentals. We do like to venture into town as a group one night and dine out – you could easily find a lovely meal with tax and tip for less than $20 US.
You will need a valid passport to travel to Costa Rica, but you will not need a Visa if you are coming from the US, Canada, or the European Union. The drinking water is good at Blue Spirit and the nearby town of Playa Guiones, as it is in most of Costa Rica, and no additional vaccines are recommended. If you’re planning to spend time off site, you may want to get some Costa Rican Colones, although US dollars are widely accepted both at Blue Spirit and in the surrounding community.
Blue Spirit offers lodging options with and without A/C, and the common areas are primarily open air, no A/C. Fans are provided in the rooms without A/C, but only you know yourself. If you’re quite accustomed to a cool sleeping environment, you may prefer a lodging option that includes A/C. We have never felt overburdened by heat in any of the lodging options.
Beach clothing, yoga clothing (shorts), slip on shoes and your camera! You can leave your shampoo and soap at home, because luxurious and eco-friendly options are provided (and required) to help protect the turtle sanctuary at Blue Spirit. Yoga mats and props are also provided, as are bath towels. Beach towels are available for purchase in the gift shop. There are no laundry facilities, so we recommend packing accordingly. You can always walk or arrange for a car to go into Playa Guiones (about an hour walk on the beach, or about a 12-minute car ride) if you need incidentals that are not available in the beautiful gift shop.
Playa Guiones has many wonderful places to stay at all price points. Blue Spirit may have a room available for you before and after, although the property is only open to those attending retreats. There are budget-friendly hostels, luxury hotels, and yoga retreat properties all within a 30 minute drive of Blue Spirit.
