It was the perfect end to a lovely vacation in beautiful Costa Rica. Sean and Jess are warm and caring hosts, and their staff worked tirelessly to make our stay comfortable. From the kitchen...

Care is given to every detail from the evening sumptuous fruit drinks to the morning eggs. The pool is cool and refreshing set with lounge chairs, the hammocks...

I just got back from leading a Pilates and MELT retreat at Vida Asana. This is my 3rd retreat in Central America, so I have some experience in how things can go right and how they can go less right. I have to say that Sean leads a crack team at Vida Asana. It's one thing to be a visionary...
