I went to Blue Sprit for a woman’s spiritual retreat. What a lovely place. I fell in love with Blue Spirit the first day. The food is vegetarian and fish. Food is very good healthy and organic. In the morning, meditation, yoga or tai-chi. Later one attends the workshop. The gardens are lush. Hearing and seeing the howler monkeys is special. Also, seeing parrots is amazing. It is a sanctuary for animals and human beings. It embodies community and sacred spiritual space. The infinity pool was a welcome. Spa was good. No gym. The beach is beautiful. Remember to time your swims with the tides. The low tide was magical and safe. The water was warm, venturing in search of tide pools, and walking the beach (3 miles) was breath taking. At high tide, one needs to careful due to strong currents. I was in room 307 beautiful view and air-conditioned. Most rooms do not have A/C, and I strongly recommend A/C. Plenty of activities during downtime. This is a retreat center for the soul. It is an amazing place. I forgot to mention the staff was warm and friendly.
