Angus and Tania, Chirriposa Retreats – Costa Rica & Europe

“Chirriposa has been hosting retreats at numerous destinations around Costa Rica and in Europe over the last years and we can honestly say that La Montana Azul is our favourite location to bring our yoga, dance, art and photography groups. The property is in one word ‘magical’, the accommodations and facilities are outstanding with such great taste and attention to detail. The yoga space is second to none and takes the ‘wow factor’ to a completely different level…”


Rabbi Marcelo Bronstein – USA

“I have been going to la Montania Azul for five years taking people from New York for a week of mindfulness, deep encounter with the soul, the kindness of the mountain and bearing witness to the social fabric of the community that surrounds the retreat center. I keep choosing la Montania Azul to lead my congregational Mindfulness retreat because they walk the talk…”
