Our love for exotic nature, joy over the manifold wildlife and the likeable Costa Ricans led us to create this hide away. el alma is a house for guests looking for calm and peace - a place where you can encounter and care for your soul.
el alma disposes of several places for recreation: a large covered terrace offers space and view over the Pacific. Our pool decks and other places in the garden are located in the shade of trees. The ample garden invites for short walks. The patio offers quiet space for yoga, reading, reflection or just for being.
The house was furnished with special care for details with almost exclusively tailor made furniture for this place and with other objects from the Pacific area. Symbolic mandalas accompany you through the entire house.The house and surroundings may be described as a "garden of the soul". It is a place for inspiration, (re-)enlivenment, refreshment, salvation, love and personal development. A site made for the pursuit of spiritual happiness. el alma and the retreats offered here are devoted to the soul as George Eliot once put it: " it's never too late to be what you might have been".
Every day is a new beginning and this mentality gives distinction to our house. We are deeply convinced that our world would need not only el alma but many other resting places for the soul. el alma is a place motivating to listen to the inner self, a place inviting to make aware everything that falls by the wayside in every day's life.
