Nestling among wooded hills beside the fast flowing Chirripo River, Rio Chirripo Yoga Retreat and Hotel is a refuge from the pressures of a busy world, a place of refreshment for mind and body. Throughout its grounds the vivid hues of abundant tropical flowers and shrubs beguile the eye and enchant the spirit.
Below the main buildings of the hotel and retreat a tree-lined path leads down to the pool area, a free-form riverside pool and hot tub, a sumptuous hideaway overlooking the Chirripo’s tumbling waters.
The focal point of life at the yoga retreat is the Rancho, a unique architectural mix of rustic tropical Santa Fe with hints of Mexico, the Mediterranean and Bali. Its open spaces have been designed to bring the outside inside. Here you can breathe fresh mountain air as you eat our healthy meals of local produce while hummingbirds explore the nearby trees and bushes. And at day’s end, in the still of the dark, you can relax by a fragrant wood fire in the Rancho’s high-roofed hall.
Uphill from the Rancho is Rio Chirripo’s yoga room whose windows offer a magnificent view of tropical forest and lush green hillside. It regularly hosts yoga retreat groups for stays of up to a month.
