FAQ

Information on our Costa Rica Wellness Center

Location: San Juanillo, Guanacaste 

We are located 5 minutes drive to one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica (San Juanillo Beach)

We are located in the largest of only 5 blue zones in the world. *

*Blue zones are geographical areas with the highest concentration of centenarians. People here live past 100 at 10 times the average. And it is not just living, it is 100+ years of quality living. Science might still not fully comprehend why this is, but our souls grasp this the second we step into it.

Location and Getting to Hacienda del Sol

Where is Hacienda del Sol Located?

Hacienda del Sol is located 14 Km up the coast from Nosara, on the Guanacaste Peninsula of Costa Rica. This area of Costa Rica is one of the last remaining areas that is only accessible via dirt roads which is one of the many things that makes it so charming. Being 14 km out side of the busy touristy area of Nosara makes our retreat centre the most magical place to reset and rejuvinate. There are no temptations, no noise and no crowds. While you are in our immersive jungle retreat you will only hear the sounds of the jungle, monkeys passing and crickets in the night.

If you do want to plan a day trip to experience the famous landmark of Nosara we are happy to arrange an excursion.

What airport should myself and my guests fly into if I plan to host my retreat at Hacienda del Sol?

Blue Zones

One of the things we are the most fortunate about is our location. Not only are we surrounded by unspoiled Guanacaste dry forest and gorgeous, undeveloped beaches less than a kilometer away, but we are located in the largest of the only 5 blue zones in the world.

Blue zones are geographical areas with the highest concentration of centenarians. People here live past 100 at 10 times the average. And it is not just living, it is 100+ years of quality living. Science might still not fully comprehend why this is, but our souls grasp this the second we step into it. It just feels good being here! Most of our guests feel happy and healthier just being here, and we maximize this with daily practices of Yoga, walking, hiking, and just plain delicious and healthy eating.

There is no need to rent a car because once you’re here there is no need for a vehicle. We recommend saving your money that you would normally have spent on a rental vehicle and putting it toward massages (far more therapeutic benefits).
