I have been to Blue Spirit for a yoga training, a retreat, and to lead a yoga retreat and it is always an amazing experience. The people, facilites, food, setting, and variety of things to do is all first rate. I plan to keep coming back for a very long time. Being at Blue Spirit really recharges the batteries.

I spent a week during the New Year's Eve, and it was an amazing exerience. The food is delicious, they have potable water everywhere, it's a calm and peaceful place to stay. The beach is beautiful, The sunset at the beach is awesome! The jungle with monkeys allover makes you feel in a forest.
