One way to imagine mindfulness is to think of your mind as the surface of the ocean. There are constant waves on the water churned up by the wind that come and go in different intensities and direction, just as the wind of challenge and stress varies in our lives. Those are the winds that stir up waves in our minds. Sometimes they’re big, sometimes they’re small, and sometimes they’re almost unnoticeable, but they are waves nonetheless. And you can’t stop them… But you can learn to surf!
This adventurous getaway is the ideal blend of tranquil and fun, jungle and beach, and all the leisure or excitement you could probably ask for. Here's what you'll get:

We provide surf boards, yoga mats, blocks, and straps. There is also a portable speaker we keep on the terrace.
Costa Rica’s Nicoya Peninsula, home of Santa Teresa, is blessed to be not one of only five Blue Zones in the world, but the largest in the world. A Blue Zone is an area where the residents enjoy an remarkably long, healthy lifespan. Perhaps there’s more to the Pura Vida lifestyle than we imagined!
You are welcome to join us, slow down, and sink into the local culture. Experience the local produce and recipes. Watch the sunsets. Allow the Pure Vida lifestyle to become a part of you. And when you return home take a bit of this special lifestyle with you.
Casa MarBella is a boutique style hotel that provides a perfect venue for our retreat to have the service, safety, and privacy of individual hotel rooms, yet the intimacy of a private villa. The casa consists of 8 separate units surrounding an infinity pool overlooking the Pacific Ocean. With the variety of 4 room styles, we can accommodate individual travelers, couples, families, and friends. In total, the casa offers 14 separate bedrooms, 10.5 bathrooms, and 6 kitchens. We also have a beautiful ocean view yoga deck that will be used for many different activities including yoga, and meditation.
Our property is located just up the hill and is our own oasis above the hustle and bustle of town, yet only a 5-minute walk to town and the beach and grocery store. MarBella also offers a large and central pool for our enjoyment.
We have a water softener and UV purifier making the tap water and all the running water at the hotel safe to drink. This means you don’t need to spend money on water and reduces plastic consumption.
