Why Pura Vida Retreat & Spa you might ask??

The Costa Rican phrase “Pura Vida” isn’t just a motto – it’s a conscious way of living. Simply translated, it means “simple life” or “pure life”. Pura Vida is a mindset which is all about being with the flow of things as they arise. Not surprisingly, Costa Rica has been named one of the Happiest countries in the world.

I am thrilled to return the Dragonfly Experience to the beautiful Retreat Center that itself is called Pura Vida Retreat & Spa. I am delighted to invite you to join us on this amazing 7 night retreat, centered around community, divine feminine, healing and transforming and Bliss….The Pura Vida way = Finding Joy in Life.


​Pura Vida Retreat and Spa is perched in the volcanic hills of Alajuela at 4,900 feet above sea level. As an award-winning spa and wellness destination Pura Vida overlooks the Central Valley of San Jose and is known for its outstanding hospitality, breathtaking views, and exquisite gardens. Pura Vida’s climate is spring-like year-round with warm days (70s-80s F) and mild nights (60s F). The sun rises at 5:30 and sets around 6 all year long.

​We will be hosting our Retreat during Costa Rica’s Green Season. The Green Season is a time of richness and splendor for those seeking peace and tranquility. The Green Season offers refreshing mountain temperatures, as well as purifying and cleansing afternoon showers which provide an opportunity to discover what the Costa Ricans call the season of turning within.

This is “back-to-nature” without being back to basics!
The Meditate Retreat will immerse you in the beauty of Costa Rica, without limiting the comforts. We pride ourselves on giving you the feeling of total nature-submersion with the private, personal, peaceful luxury, rarely found in this modern, fast-paced world.

There is no prior experience needed to attend. We ask you to come to our retreat with an open mind and heart, we will do the rest. Be ready to learn and experience a transformation.


Food is such a HUGE part of the Pura Vida life. All of the meals during our Retreat will be lovingly prepared by a team of talented chefs. The entire retreat will be based around local farmers and growers as well as seasonal recipes that will delight the palette, and entrance the eye. 

All our ​Delicious dishes are lovingly prepared from fresh local produce and regional purveyors. Served buffet-style in our inviting dining hall, all meals feature both North American and Costa Rican vegetarian, fish and chicken dishes to tempt your taste buds and nourish your body and soul. We also can accommodate specialty diets with advance notice.

Complimentary coffee, tea, alkaline water and filtered water are available throughout the day.
​The wine and juice bar in the dining hall stocks sulfite-free, organic wines, Costa Rican and Central American beers, and bottled water. It is also the place for fresh smoothies, custom-blended chai and organic wheat grass elixirs (made from wheat grass grown in-house).
