Nearby Nosara Yoga Institute: For a vitalizing, life-opening experience of studying and practicing yoga, few locations on the planet equal Nosara on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. Yoga reveals to us that attuning to nature, in all her different forms continually calls us to listen to the natural wisdom inherent within our own being. The schedules and curriculum of every Nosara Yoga Institute program honor the time and space it takes for Nature to work her miracle of bringing the rhythms of self into ever-deeper harmony with the rhythms of Nature. On any given day while you are here, you will have time to get to know yourself, spending time on the beach and exploring the wonders of the surrounding jungle community and wildlife preserve.

Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 17, 2010
  • Stayed: Dec 2010
We are a family of five and thoroughly enjoyed our ten day stay at Villa Cortes. We truly cannot imagine staying in a more beautiful place. It is just the slice of paradise we needed to recover from our hectic busied lives in the States. We stayed in Casa Grande and thoroughly enjoyed the amazing accommodations.

Aida, the Villa's caretaker, was amazing! She made us feel very comfortable and seemed to be very intuitive…making herself available should you need anything, but otherwise just letting you enjoy your vacation. From our arrival with smoothies, taking us to town and showing us the way the “Super,” supplying fresh coconut water in a bonafide coconut, and cooking dinner for us.

We enjoyed seeing all the animals that are around Nosara and on property! We had a chance to see a family of monkeys, an armadillo, a snake, and a skunk (pee-yew…as it sprayed).

Yoga and Pilates lessons in the Villa Cortes Yoga Studio with Gabbie is a must! I have taken three lessons already and my three-year old son loves the classes as well. As you can imagine keeping a three-year old engaged/interested is challenging but Gabbie has a wonderful way with children. Who knew that my son would master “downward-facing dog” and “upward-facing dog” postures so young! As for me, I managed to get a great workout and gain more skill with advanced poses.

The lesson on conservation of our earth’s resources and being eco-friendly was invaluable for my family and myself. Ten days adhering to composting much of our garbage and not using zip-loc bags, Tupperware, and paper towels proved to be very enlightening for us. Less is more…there is no need for many of the so-called “necessities” that we cling to in the United States. Upon our return home, I plan to enlist more eco-mindfulness and less wasteful habits.

“We got away from a hectic busy life and lived the dream of hiding away in a tropical paradise. How fortunate to experience the ultimate getaway in PRIVATE, luxurious surroundings. Thank you, creators of VILLA CORTES. It was the perfect vacation.”

“I could never fully describe the comfort and luxury we experienced in this beautiful place while at the same time waking up in the morning to the howling of monkeys and the call of tropical birds. Villa Cortes is truly a tropical paradise. Something that few people have the privilege of experiencing during the brief time they have while passing through this world.”

My family and I just had the most amazing vacation. I surfed morning and afternoon everyday, I can't believe how consistent the waves are, off shore wind in the morning, with afternoon glassing off. WOW!
My wife really enjoyed the property with the pool and all the lush gardens. We also did some long beach walks to Playa Pelada amazingly beautiful. The next time we come we will definitely be doing the meal plan. Aida that was an amazing meal. Thank you & see you next year.
