What Our Guests Are Saying…

I came to Dominical in search of some healing, but experienced so much more. I felt such a strong reawakening of my divine light and my true self, that I was able to cultivate the power I needed to change my life to “live my yes.” Staying at Danyasa was the start of an enormous shift in my life… I am in love with my life and myself again, and although I have lived in many beautiful places and met beautiful people, I am always comparing it back to Costa Rica, Dominical, and Danyasa. Thank you for inspiring a change that has lead me to become a truer version of myself, and helping me realize my dreams.

Yoga Teacher and World Traveler

I had such an amazing experience at Danyasa. The people in Dominical were very friendly, the space was beautiful, safe, and comfortable. My room was so comfortable, clean and made me feel at peace. The kitchen, the hammock, and the yoga studio were my favorite parts. As most people would feel visiting Costa Rica, I could’ve just lived there forever. As a woman traveling alone, I felt welcomed and overjoyed to meet so many amazing people traveling and doing the same thing I was. I will be back to Danyasa without a doubt. Much love!

I stayed here for nearly a week in July of 2013, and my memories of this tranquil place situated in the quiet town of Domincal make my heart happy. Even if you are not staying at their eco-retreat (now called Danyasa), taking a class in the studio (Bamboo YogaPlay) is an experience you won’t forget. This studio is the epitome of the beauty in yoga.

An oasis of all things good in Dominical. If you are looking for a great vibe, a friendly team, nice views, folks who know Dominical and where to get the best of everything, how to arrange everything, and amazing connections across the country, look no further. If they were not full many of the nights, I would have spent every night there.
