Our local region attracts gifted healers and therapists. They accept both dollars and colones for their services. There will be spa menu and sign-up sheets upon your arriva. Wellness Services are provided in the Pool & Spa therapy rooms.
While we are totally “off the grid,” decent access to internet connections are found on the property. Two wireless broadband USB data sticks are available for this purpose and only work in laptops, not iPads. We encourage you to disconnect while on retreat, however you may connect during meal times through staff phones which act as Hot Spots. The Sanctuary has cell phones for emergency use.
Being 100% off-the-grid entirely on Solar Power, this eco-estate respects and requires energy conservation: Electronics such as hair dryers, curling irons, hot rollers, and similar energy-draining items cannot be supported with this system and hence their use is not allowed. We recommend a light leave-in hair conditioner. All lights and fans must be turned off before leaving the accommodations, pool area, or Yoga Pagoda. We have standard 110 volt three-prong outlets for our guests to truly enjoy a carbon-neutral green vacation. One can charge their phone, computer, or play music with a docking station almost anywhere on the property! Plus, we have independent solar hot water heaters on each guest house's roof, providing a spectacular garden-view hot water shower experience!
The US Dollar is accepted in Costa Rica; exchanging US Dollars to Costa Rica Colones is not necessary. Denominations of $20 are best.
ATM: The closest ATM machine is a 12 minute drive into Montezuma.
Bank: The closest bank is a 25 minute drive into Cobano.
Safety Box & Personal Belongings
Each room is provided with a safety box. The Sanctuary cannot be held responsible for any missing personal items.
Accidents happen even to the fittest of us. A 24-Hour Emergency Medical Center, with English-speaking doctors, is only a 25 minute drive into Cobano, where there is also a pharmacy.
We unfortunately cannot provide laundry services. Your towels will be changed on Tuesday. Please air dry towels on the hooks provided.
Candles & Incense
For fire safety reasons, we cannot allow candle or incense burning in any of the guest-houses.
Please rinse off any lotions or oils before entering the pool. No diving allowed. Use the special towel provided in your room for the Pool and Waterfall. Please be mindful of your conversations; a massage therapy session may be underway nearby. Pool hours are from 7 am - 9 pm.
Perfumes & Fragrances
In consideration of others, please do not wear scented oils or fragrances in the Yoga Pagoda. Please refrain from using any alcohol-based perfumes or colognes anywhere on the property.
