About the Location – Costa Rica


Costa Rica has recently been named the Happiest country in the world! This is a land of Pura Vida where Ecological Integrity really matters. The easy vibe and friendly locals welcome you like you were family.


In the last 10 years Nosara has grown quietly into one of the hip holistic hot-spots on the planet. This peaceful and vibrant international community of nature lovers, surfers, yogis, and families truly embraces the Pura Vida lifestyle.

nicoyapeninsulamapThe community resides along the coast with 3 unspoiled stunning beaches – Playa Guiones, Playa Pelada, and Playa Nosara – with private houses, little hotels, and excellent restaurants hidden into lush tropical greenery. Blue Spirit has become a vital part of this community.

The residents of Nosara are committed to preserve their natural environment. The 3 beaches are protected as a turtle refuge, and almost half of the land in the entire area is protected forest, and a moratorium on hunting animals stretches back for over 20 years.

The actual village and original settlement of Nosara is 4 miles inland, alongside the Rio Nosara. It’s a a small traditional Costa Rican town with grocery stores, typical restaurants, churches, a disco, a soccer field, and the landing strip for daily flights to and from San Jose.


From The Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort’s website:”The Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort was creatively designed around nature, leaving the surrounding jungle as it was meant to be. We strived to preserve the jungle’s natural state leaving the impression that Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort has been here for many years.Solar panels are responsible for utilizing the sun to heat all the hot water needed for the facility. Bodhi Tree will always work towards being as environmentally friendly as possible.

Being aware of our water usage is important in Costa Rica. Long dry winters use up the aquifers storage making it even more important for water management. Here at Bodhi Tree, we take this very seriously and every drop of water goes to use on our grounds. Bodhi Tree has built its own water treatment plant so no water is wasted. This water is used to irrigate the gardens keeping everything green without draining subcutaneous water supplies.

We are very proud to be a plastic free facility. Along with our community we have taken an aggressive stand on keeping our environment clean and healthy. We encourage every guest to join us in doing our part in Keeping Costa Rica Plastic Free. Through education and consistent effort we are working to make Bodhi Tree a consciously green resort.”
