Vacations are more than opportunities to merely “get away from it all.” As any savvy traveler knows, it may not always be enough to take a break from reality, when the real aspiration is in renewing the mind, body, and spirit. Because of this, our getaways are just as much about seeking inspiration for rejuvenation as they are from taking a break from the ordinary. After all, while indulging and pampering oneself on vacation is part of the fun, it can also become an unforgettable way to become a better you. 

Casa Teresa Luxury Villas’ concierge will help you plan your perfect luxury retreat in Costa Rica, because we know that your best souvenir is an enhanced appreciation for your health and wellness in your daily life. Hosting a luxury wellness retreat in Costa Rica will be a gift to yourself and your traveling companions that will remain long after your time in Santa Teresa.

Traveling to “The Blue Zone”

We won’t be surprised if the first things that come to mind about “blue zones” are the blue waves caressing the beaches of Santa Teresa and the swirling pools at our villas, but here we are referring to a medical phenomenon documented by research scientists, who pinpointed specific areas in the world that are known for both quality and quantity of lifespans. 

Spoiler alert: the Nicoya peninsula region of Costa Rica, in which Casa Teresa is located, is one of these acclaimed blue zones!

There are many reasons why Costa Rica, home of the Pura Vida, or “pure life,” has literally been put on the map for longevity and wellness. Researchers have specifically cited the area’s abundance of various physical activities along the pristine beaches, rainforests, and mountains, which all prove why fun in the sun is just what the doctor ordered. Costa Rican culture, similarly, is one that is warm and welcoming, beckoning you to llevarla toque, or slow down a bit – and maybe smell the Costa Rican flowers while you’re at it. And, of course, with an equally impressive abundance of fresh seafood, ripe tropical fruits, world-class, antioxidant rich Costa Rican coffee, and more, the ways in which you replenish yourself are just as important. 

Hosting Wellness Retreats in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica

Even though the peninsula of Costa Rica is now getting official recognition as the beacon for well-being that locals knew long before, and thus getting its place in the sun as a trending tourist destination, Santa Teresa is an exclusive destination for luxury retreats in Costa Rica. This means that we delight and take complete care in assuring our guests’ comfort and privacy. It’s why, for example, we can help arrange chartered flights to nearby Manzanillo or Tambor, and take additional measures to ensure that your experience is specially catered to you.

The level of indulgent pampering alongside second-to-none levels of hospitality ensure that you and all of your traveling companions will be freed to focus on what you came to Costa Rica for: yourselves and your well-being. Our exclusive Costa Rica villa rentals will keep you grounded and provide the perfect place to fill your cup. 

A Holistic Approach to Wellness

Undoubtedly, Santa Teresa is already renowned for its adventures, from dazzling nightlife to its reputation as a surfer’s paradise. It is thus no surprise that this playfulness also requires taking rest and restoration seriously, to the point that many honored guests have opted to spend their time at Casa Teresa by enjoying it to its fullest, whether it is reading an indulgent book by the pool or from the Moroccan architecture looking over the ocean, dining in with personal chef services, taking advantage of the benefits of our gym and cold plunge pools, or spending quiet moments journaling, painting, or anything else in the comforting, relaxing privacy of a home-away-from home Costa Rican luxury retreat villa. 

In order to take your and your guests’ plans to “stay in” to the next level, the staff of Casa Teresa offer a wide menu of activities that you can customize to the theme of your wellness retreat.

Fitness and Yoga 

Whatever your personalized fitness goals are, our personalized fitness instructors are ready to bring you exhilarating workouts either inside our extensive gym amenities, or against the backdrop of pristine nature and opulent living spaces. Similarly, if you are a yoga instructor or wellness practitioner seeking a venue for your next retreat, please get in touch with us to learn how we can help host your Costa Rica wellness retreat, whether it is a yoga-focused retreat or more comprehensive wellness or fitness activities.  


If you would like to pair meditation sessions with yoga, with other mindfulness activities for you and your traveling companions, or focus your stay primarily on meditation and other spiritual pursuits, our concierge services will artfully work with you and your guests to arrange for sessions that are meaningful, fulfilling, and with techniques that can sustain you for long after your time here.

Blue Zones and Food

What would the “Blue Zone” life be without tantalizing, nourishing cuisine to pair it with? When everything is picked or caught at the peak of freshness, even the simplest meals – including the “three sisters” of Mesoamerican diet of corn, squash, and beans – can become delicacies all on their own. With our personal chefs available for adding private culinary experiences to your vacation, this is once again another opportunity to bring luxury to your retreat in Costa Rica. 

While there are numerous fine dining options throughout Santa Teresa, it is not uncommon for visitors who are hosting wellness retreats to tailor the menu according to the goals of the retreat, and in mindfulness of guests’ specific dietary needs. 

The private chefs at Casa Teresa are well-versed in a variety of cuisines, and take extra care to ensure that every individual enjoys a meal that is both delicious and nourishing. Of special note is our chefs’ exquisite vegan meals and snacks, prepared according to personal taste, and in acknowledgement that more people have found that plant-based diets are often the missing ingredients to healthier lives. 

The Sky (and Sea) is the Limit

For all the excitement that awaits you along the Nicoyan peninsula of Costa Rica, our concierge is ready to bring the adventure to you. Should you be inspired to add any additional activity to round out the Costa Rican retreat you are hosting, including outdoor fitness-focused adventures such as hiking, snorkeling, biking, or surfing classes, our staff are ready to work with you to bring your inspiration into reality. Salud – cheers to your health! – and enjoy your luxury retreat in Costa Rica.
