Highlights

Blue Osa Yoga Retreat and Spa is the perfect place to rejuvenate through the practice of yoga. Yoga is at the foundation of Blue Osa. From the friendly smiles of the staff who know your name, to the way the bread is baked from scratch daily, everything is done mindfully with love. With 12 rooms and a capacity for 32 guests, this intimate beachfront eco-resort offers the ultimate sanctuary if you’re seeking solace from the hectic world. Nestled off-the-beaten-path in the virgin Costa Rican rainforest of the Southern Osa Peninsula, guests have an endless selection of quiet places to meditate and reflect. Only 50 meters away from the waves, you can see the private beach while practicing yoga from our elegantly designed second floor Yoga Studio. Onsite, there is also a chemical-free lap pool for an afternoon swim.

Yogic not only in design, Blue Osa encourages guests to be mindful by implementing a morning silence to a pre-dinner ritual of presenting the food during their freshly prepared organic farm-to-table communal meals. Napkin rings with guests names are rotated at the dinner table each night to encourage mixing and mingling. For full relaxation, there is also a full service eco-spa offering locally sourced fruit facials and body scrubs. Massage practitioners offering therapies such as Watsu and Deep Tissue Massage. A Chinese Medicine acupuncturist is also available. Built from the ground up as a sustainable micro-grid that runs mostly on solar-power, Blue Osa intends to leave the smallest carbon footprint possible. By living in harmony with the environment, guests are able to experience true mindful living in balance.


 "This retreat is all about you! We will have daily Restorative Yoga practices and optional daily Breathing and Meditation class. My intention is for you to arrive here and find some inner peace, a place of grounding and to really spend some time focusing on you. Daily Restorative practices along with Meditation are sure to calm your nerves so that you can truly relax and restore!" - Mindy

Yoga Ambassador

I am here to share the many great benefits I experience emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually from practicing Yoga. Yoga won’t take away the anxiety, the triggers or the pain. Yoga will help you to find a way to understand yourself better, be healthy, be more compassionate and feel and overall sense of peacefulness.

The trip was phenomenal! … Everyone was so accommodating and great to us at the resorts; the food we were given daily was hands down the best and the living quarters we got were amazing; the excursions that were included and the excursions we paid for were, as expected, memorable and everything you'd want them to be.

Everything was fantastic!  Loved being out in the wilderness just relaxing.  Alex is awesome (but I did know that going in).  And I found everything to be very well organized and planned out... I've already recommended you to all my yoga friends (teachers and practitioners both).

Kayaking, waterfall hike and swimming, zip lining, yoga in the open air pavilion, the camaraderie of the group at meals, in the evening etc. Basically, I liked everything.

This trip was amazing! It was beyond all of my expectations. Harris and I were the random couple from Florida on this trip, but we never felt separate, out of place, or not a part of the group. Every single person on this trip was lovely and I really feel I have made new friends for life. There is no doubt that I would follow Kim Smarr and her group anywhere. She was simply wonderful and to be doing yoga twice a day in a rainforest paradise is every yogi's dream. I felt so connected, alive and spiritually recharged. This trip was so enjoyable I cannot say enough good things about Rancho Margot and Kim Smarr. I could not have asked for anything more... except time! I didn't want to leave! This was a great, great experience!

The meals were the 2nd best part of the trip and I'm not even Paleo! Had I known just how MUCH food there was going to be, I would have paid even more for this trip. Fantastic.

This trip was life changing for me in the least cliche way. First of all, I met some of the most beautiful people… that I have ever come across. It was harder for me to say goodbye to this group than it is for me to say goodbye to some long time friends back home. I not only learned to cherish quality time with good people, but was able to do so while eating healthy, keeping up with my fitness, exploring Nicaragua, and learning tips and tricks in the kitchen... I now find myself yearning to travel, explore, and meet new people. Also, ever since this trip I am cooking almost every night! This trip was indeed priceless and I can hardly wait for next year.

Going on this adventure alone as a French-speaking Canadian girl was a challenge but I’m so glad I did go for it! I am amazed that i've been so lucky to be with this funny group of good, positive, life-loving and awesome people from all over !! I couldn't think about better people to live this trip with! Can't wait for the part II next year!

The trip to Nica was just what Lewis and I needed… Meeting the amazing crew of people just solidified that sometimes you just need to connect with your "tribe" and all will become clear, and the world will right itself.


From Flora, Bart, Marc & Marielle to the sweet ladies in the kitchen to the grounds crew -- the lovely people of BVSC made it a home away from home. Even the howler monkeys sang to us to show their love (thank god I brought ear plugs)! Yoga on the deck in the mornings just brought me such peace and renewal of spirit.


Keeping it Paleo, soon in WA!

Thanks so much for putting together the best trip ever. I've been all over and Nicaragua is the best by far. The warm water, great waves, beautiful scenery, diverse wildlife, and really cool people to share it all with made for a perfect recipe to take it all in. Sorry I ate all the food and I definitely lost count of my block intake. I can't wait until next time! Thanks again for the great food and great adventure, and thanks to all the culinary ninjas in the kitchen!

The trip truly was awesome. I would agree with Michelle and say that I wish it was longer. I'm missing Playa Maderas, the surfing, the taco shop, and the good times with all the people from the group. I will definitely keep another Culinary Adventure to Nica on my radar. Thanks!
