Staying at Pura Vida Wellness Retreat is an experience unlike any other.

The cabins are located in a jungle and a tropical garden situated on the hill just at the ocean shore.

Most of the cabins have breathtaking views of the ocean and Yelapa bay, they were built literally just above the ocean. You may enjoy the ocean view right from your bed or from a terrace. Each cabin has 1-2 queen size beds (Organic metal-free mattresses, organic, hypoallergenic pillows, organic bed sheets) with mosquito nets. There is also a very spacious cabin with a loft – 2 queen size beds downstairs and 2 upstairs. Each cabin has a private bathroom (some with ocean views). They are furnished with Mexican furniture and artifacts selected individually for each cabin to offer a very unique look and feeling. All cabins are spacious and individually designed.  All lighting is soft white LED – energy saving, good for your eyes and health.

The rooms were built in modern Palapa style, They are walled from 3 sides and open in the front, offering amazing jungle and ocean views, security and privacy, and fresh unpolluted air.

There are also two fully enclosed rooms with air-conditioning.

Pure Vida eco retreat is EMF free at most of the areas and at night.. There is Wi-Fi limited to certain hours in the common area. There are spots on the property where you can get cellular reception. We invite our guests to retreat from the media, computers and phones.

Unlike other hotels in the area, you are not limited just to your room. It’s a communal, spiritual retreat experience.

Start your morning with Yoga and end the evening with group meditation/inquiry, plus 5 rhythms and Qi gong happens 2-3 times per week (schedule changes seasonally).

You are welcome to walk on the paths and explore the exotic park with many quiet places to meditate, do yoga, get a massage, hang out at the meeting places, explore healthy vegetarian and Mexican cuisine from our Kitchen. Or just enjoy the amazing views,

swim in the infinity ocean water chlorine-free pool and soak in the hot tub.

In Thalassotherapy, trace elements of magnesium, potassium, calcium, sodium, and iodide found in seawater are believed to be absorbed through the skin

You may also enjoy raw, organic treats, juices and smoothies from our pool side Juice Bar.

There is also Spiritual Cinema to enjoy in the evening inspirational movies or documentaries shown on our big projection screen.

For cleansing and spiritual rejuvenation we offer Temazcal [temasˈkal] – a type of sweat lodge used traditionally by pre- Hispanic Indigenous peoples of Mexico. The ceremonies have to be scheduled in advance.

For meditative Vipassana walks there is a Labyrinth in our Zen Garden (completion in summer 2019). You will also find a way to enjoy your aloneness on the rocks by the ocean.
Our retreat center is at the Point, the area removed from the village – 12 minute walk, just three minute walk from a small beach and 20-25 minute walk from the main beach.

To ensure your meditative retreat experience we don’t allow loud music or alcohol at the property.

Our cabins are available for individual or group retreats for any amount of time from 1 night up to a month. Right now we offer 15 rooms, which when shared can sleep 25 or more persons. By the next winter we will have more cabins, swimming pool, Watsu pool, sauna (Spring 2019), and completed spa, right at the shore of the ocean – Open from Fall 2018.
