Travel with Sheila Ewers to one of the most breathtaking, bio-diverse places on earth: Nosara, Costa Rica. Immerse yourself in the beauty of the rainforest. Swim in the healing salt water. Practice Yoga daily. Nourish yourself with fresh, delicious meals and bond with fellow adventurers. Yogic wisdom teaches that our true nature is infinite, eternal and whole, connected to all beings and radiant beyond our imagining. We sense this when we pause to watch a sunset, when we gaze into the vast horizon of an endless sea, and when we are surprised by beauty, but oftentimes our busy lives leave little or no time to explore either the world without or the world within our own being. Give yourself the gift of retreat to recalibrate your awareness and dive into deeper connection with Self and Soul.
The Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort was designed to flow with the nature that surrounds us. You can begin your day with a cool-down in your outdoor shower or a dip in the salt-water infinity pool at sunrise. Soothing fountains and waterfalls guide you through the local fauna on your way to your bungalow. Open the door to find a star-lit shower, luxurious cotton sheets and a canopied bed that promises a well-deserved rest. All bungalows have air-conditioning, free Wi-Fi and modern amenities abound. Security staff is available 24 hours a day and housekeeping staff will keep your room looking as beautiful as the first day you arrive.

When you leave Costa Rica, you will have to pay a departure tax of $29 USD. It must be paid at Juan Santamaria International Airport before going through airport security. The tax is payable in either colones, U.S. dollars, or with Visa/Mastercard.
Option 1: Fly from San Jose Airport (SJO)
A flight from San Jose to Nosara takes approximately 45 minutes and can be booked at www.flysansa.com. This is a beautiful way to get a bird's eye view of the topography of Costa Rica and one of my favorite ways to see the country.
Option 2: Shuttle from Liberia Airport
For those flying into Liberia, a shuttle can be arranged through Bodhi Tree Resort. The drive takes approximately 2.5 hours and will incur an additional fee of approximately $50 per person in a shared ride.
Option 3: Drive from either international airport. Rental cars are plentiful in Costa Rica, but you will want a 4 wheel drive vehicles, so be sure to arrange your rental well in advance.
