On this retreat, you will be staying at Pura Vida Wellness Retreat. There, you can commune with nature in all its forms; sea, jungle, river, tropical plants, and birds. The accommodations are rustic but clean and comfortable and designed in modern Mexican palapa style with all comforts including hot showers, mosquito nets, safe boxes, LED lights, hammocks, etc.

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 one to two queen size beds (organic metal-free mattresses and organic, hypoallergenic or goose down pillows) with mosquito nets.

There is also a very spacious cabin with a loft of two queen size beds downstairs and two upstairs. Each cabin has a private bathroom (some with ocean views). They are furnished with authentic Mexican furniture and artifacts selected individually for each cabin to offer a very unique look and feel. All cabins are spacious and individually designed. All lighting is soft white LEDs which are energy saving and good for your eyes and health.

The cabins were built in modern palapa style. They are walled from three sides and open in the front, offering amazing jungle and ocean views, security, privacy, and fresh unpolluted air. There is also one fully enclosed cabin with air-conditioning.

Pure Vida Wellness Retreat is mostly EMF-free. There is Wi-Fi limited to certain hours in the common area. There are spots on the property where you can get cellular reception. Pura Vida Wellness Retreat invites you 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.

For cleansing and spiritual rejuvenation, Pura Vida Wellness Retreat offers temazcal, a type of sweat lodge used traditionally by pre-Hispanic indigenous people of Mexico. For meditative Vipassana walks, there is a labyrinth in the zen garden. You will also find a way to enjoy your aloneness on meditation decks on the rocks by the ocean. To ensure your meditative retreat experience, loud music or alcohol is not allowed at the property.
