Hi! Blue Spirit is a non-smoking facility but you can go to the beach to smoke and there is a trash can there where you can discard the butts. Pura Vida!

I never saw a scorpion but we did see a big spider. Tell the staff and they take care of it. Our room opened to the woods. You’ll wake up to the howler monkeys though. And be careful regardless, it is nature out there!
