Pura Vida on Playa Guiones.
Costa Rica is known for Pure Life, or “Pura Vida”. It’s a place where people rise and set with the sun, move a little slower, laugh a bit more, worry a bit less, enjoy the simple pleasure of a fresh mango, a perfect set of waves, the sound of the howler monkeys in the morning, and the beauty of the jungle and sea around them. For one week come live this pure life, in Nosara, Costa Rica - one of the worlds Blue Zones.
Jade is an inspiring private retreat nestled where jungle meets the Pacific at Playa Guiones. This native shelter of teak, concrete and water seamlessly blend with gardens and canopy for an intimate connection between architecture and nature, comfort and inspiration. The property is comprised of a series of private villas arranged around a shared dining/cooking space, a pool, and an exclusive yoga shala, complete with mats and props. All rooms are air-conditioned with a private indoor bathrooms. (Deluxe Garden Villas contain indoor AND outdoor bathrooms.) Each villa has a queen size canopy bed and a pull out full/double bed for doubles. Two bunk houses contain four single beds in each, ideal for friends or folks saving their money for surf lessonss (two person minimum in these rooms.) Enjoy some solitude on the deck outside your villa, or some company around the shared pool and ping-pong table. A private chef will prepare all meals - think fresh veggies and fruits, salads, gallo pinto, fresh fish, etc. You are welcome to use the fridge and drink the water - the whole property is equipped with reverse osmosis water filtration.
After an integrative and intuitive morning practice and a healthy breakfast, take a 5 minute walk out the door and down to Playa Guiones, where you can stroll for hours, searching for shells & agates, or take a surf lesson and learn to ride the waves. Enjoy lunch at Jade or check out Nosara, browsing the shops and restaurants, and meeting the locals. A variety of excursions will be available to those who want to explore and adventure, with daily free-time for those who want to chill out and listen to the sound of the waves. In the evening we’ll wind down with a relaxing practice and blissful Yoga Nidra session to restore body and mind. Dinner will be served with a smile. And at least once during your week, plan to check out the Milky Way, hanging clear and bright over the beach at night.

Monkey’s that OM!.
“Seriously, our group was finishing our yoga session on the beautiful outdoor yoga shala and a monkey chanted "om" with us. We experienced many magical moments like this at Jade. It was the best place to hold a luxury yoga retreat. Our group appreciated the privacy of the casitas and hammocks as well as the outdoor living areas for gathering.”
“What a pleasure it was to meet so many amazing souls and to spend the week together in such a beautiful place!”
Serene & Private Paradise.
