I came to the CRYS for a profound healing journey with Iboga. I knew this was THE PLACE for my experience, and I was more than in such awe every step of the way.
Much love and gratitude to Sarah and Darin for holding the space, to Lisa and MJ for their magic hands and being the best hostesses, and YY and Javi for the chinese medicine.
Not to forget the amazing cooks and housekeepers.
The people are beautiful as is the entire property. I will return, perhaps yearly.
Namaste

We have done endless research through a multitude of medicinal studies worldwide and have developed our one of a kind Iboga treatment for those who wish to partake. Truly a transformational experience all around, we are attentive to each person literally day and night. We are very happy to hear that this was the magical journey for you that we know it to be. We hope you return yearly as you mentioned!

Stayed here, loved it and wonder wether to recommend it or not as too many people will want to go!!
Location, people, food, animals, atmosphere all is just stunning.
If you are looking for natural, magnificent environment, a 'bit' more comfort, and all in an authentic way don't look further. The rooms a so lovely. The team is so friendly.

You actually do not want to leave this place any more.

Daran - the owner has put lots of love into the place which is visible everywhere.
Silent, thoughtfull, fun, and if you want some action you can have this too.
The team is organising everything for you horse riding with Beate, paddling with Allan, Yoga with various teachers, Thai massage with MJ ....

One thing however - if you don't like animals... this place might be not that easy going for you.

You forget everything around you.

To start off, thank you for your review! We will maintain our ways of catering to small amounts of people at a time so you won't have to worry about it ever being too crowded here at the Costa Rica Yoga Spa! We will continuously provide our hands-on, extremely personal experience for each and every guest!

Darin, the owner, has created his utopian vision and is still developing and perfecting it here onsite. Indeed we have very adventurous activities (optional) along with our most relaxing activities (also optional, both strongly suggested) such as spa treatments. We offer such a wide array of options for our guests to enjoy so we can accommodate to each visitor!

I was there for a Yoga Retreat a couple of weeks ago. It was the most awesome experience I have ever had, it was life changing for me and a large part of it was the Costa Rica Yoga Spa itself as it is very beautiful and the Rancho is very magical. I had one of the beautiful private rooms with a balconey, loved sitting out there in the morning watching the sunrise and listening to the sounds of the jungle waking up. Watching the sunset over the panoramic view of the jungle with the ocean in the background was breathtaking and something I will never forget. I miss watching the sunsets already. The staff are amazing and made you feel part of a family and the food was absolutely outstanding. Loved the excursions (paddle boarding and ziplining and the trips to the beach)and of course Yoga everyday. I enjoyed the Spa treatments and the healing session I had with Ashley.
I will definitely go back........Thank you to the staff of the Costa Rica Yoga Spa for the most amazing experience.

We can't thank you enough for your review! Hearing these kinds of responses from our guests reinforces the great pride we take in providing the space, activities, memories, and general well-being for each person who comes to stay with us. As we are situated on a riviera overlooking the jungle canopy and Pacific Ocean, our suites as well as our other rooms, kitchen, and yoga pavilion all boast an endlessly incredible view. Hearing the jungle come to life after the evening gives way to the first hints of daylight truly is an enjoyable experience. We are glad you took the time to take it all in!

Our family here at the Costa Rica Yoga Spa is all about making people feel comfortable and welcoming them into our community. Our activity list is very fulfilled and will surely provide you with the adventures you may be seeking. We have an equally substantially sized spa treatment menu which we love to spoil our guests with too!

All the staff made us feel like family with great friendly service. Excellent organic meals and great energy coming from this place. Rooms are clean, well designed with high ceilings and air-con in the suites. Close to the beaches also. Amazing yoga room with nice sea breezes and spectacular views.

Wow!! I hosted a week long New Year's Eve retreat at the Costa Rica Yoga Spa and I am blown away by every part of our experience. The staff, food, excursions, spa treatments, yoga space, and accommodations were fantastic. Sarah and YY made it an unforgettable experience for us, Ashley and the office staff were a huge help, and everyone on site (Jeff, Sky, Chica, Vero, Darren etc...) made it the most memorable retreat experience of my life. I was impressed with the ease of airport transfers, excursions, meals, and overall planning despite having a large group - everything was seamless. Rooms were clean, water was fresh, yoga space was outstanding, and the food was out of this world. Overall, an amazing experience. If you are a yoga teacher, this is a MUST for your next retreat or training.

Just finished co-leading a sold out new year's eve yoga retreat here and just wanted to share that it was an incredible experience. This place is excellent all around...rooms, staff (darren, wi-wi, sarah, vera, trunco very special*), excursions (surfing, waterfall tour, stand up paddle board etc...etc...), food...you name it!!

Having been fortunate to lead and practice in yoga spaces worldwide they have one of the best yoga spaces in the world that panoramically over looks the beautiful costa rican jungle and ocean.

All our students commented that this was a life changing trip and large part of that has to do with the staff and facilities of Cosa Rica Yoga Spa.

The only issue is that they max out at about 26 guests and once the word gets out they better build some more rooms fast...we will back for sure!!!

It is always so pleasing to get such positive feedback from our guests, especially retreat leaders. This was an amazing retreat filled with truly incredible people. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment with you guys and cannot wait to have you here again!

We are ecstatic to hear the feedback on our yoga pavilion. The vision for our creation was and is aimed directly at being "one of the best yoga spaces in the world."

As for the number of people we accommodate, yes, we are currently sitting around 26 people for our occupancy. However, we will begin building our villas and casitas soon on the land just across a suspension bridge from our yoga pavilion. These will be timeshares or shared ownerships. We will house the overflow of guests in these luxury condos which will also be located in quiet, pristine jungle.
