Yes.

 

Is there a swimming pool?

What's the closest airport?

Liberia International Airport (LIR)

How do I get to the retreat from the airport?

The airport is about an hour from the retreat location. Playa Junquillal is a serene beach town in the Guanacaste province of Costa Rica. It’s a lovely, quiet area surrounded by several wonderful beaches within driving distance. Therefore, we highly recommend renting a car so you can take advantage of everything the area has to offer. Cars can be rented at the Liberia Airport through Expedia. Some of the beaches are accessed through dirt roads; therefore, we suggest upgrading to an SUV. Be sure to check with your rental car company about the required insurance fees. Here are directions from the airport to Playa Junquillal: www.tierrapacifica.com/getting-to-tierra-pacifica

 

What should I pack?

Passport.

As Costa Rica is a tropical environment, we suggest packing bug spray and plenty of sun protection including sunscreen, sunglasses, water bottle, note pad, pen, and hat/SPF clothing. You will also want to bring a pair of water shoes and don’t forget your bathing suit and beach towel. And, of course, yoga clothes and your mat.
