“Mariko is a yoga instructor’s instructor.  She’s the best one I’ve had.  She’s passionate, precise, friendly, and very calming.  Rarely do you walk out of a class feeling better than when you entered.  In her class you feel energized and rejuvenated. 

 She seems to have dedicated much of her life to yoga having undergone advanced training in India.  You can tell that yoga is a way of life for her.  She exudes positive energy, attention to proper posture, and has an very calm music selection. 

 I wish I had known about her earlier.  She’s a consummate professional with a sublime and uplifting spirit.”

~ Review from

“She is most effective as a teacher and has helped me to identify the strengths and weaknesses in my body enabling me to perform the asanas with greater comfort and ease… 

Most importantly, she makes me feel that she cares; and, additionally, I feel a sense of improvement as a result of the way she encourages me and shows me how to work with my body.” 

~ Margot Steinberg, NYC

“Her form is so beautiful, and her instruction is delivered with patience yet is challenging.  She brings a very spiritual aspect to her sessions, while still keeping it very athletic. I love Mariko so much- she puts 100% into every class and her joy of doing yoga is infectious!”

Now let’s talk about the venue!

Staying at Pura Vida Wellness Retreat is an experience unlike any other. The rooms are located in a jungle and a tropical garden situated on the hill just at the ocean shore. Most of the rooms have breathtaking views of the ocean and Yelapa bay. They were built literally just above the ocean.

It’s the perfect place to connect with nature…and with your inner self!

Relax at the infinity pool overlooking the ocean, chill out with a book in their spiritual library, or pamper yourself with holistic treatments.

This peaceful, secluded ocean front resort is located a ten minute scenic walk from a small Mexican Village named Yelapa, which means “where the two rivers meet the sea.”

You’ll be far away from the tourist crowds. Instead, you’ll discover the beauty of Mother Nature, and charms of the local culture and delicious cuisine!


“Pura Vida is a beautiful space found amongst an even more magical place – Yelapa. I had the opportunity to spend several week at this wonderful retreat and feel so lucky to have come across it.

For me the location was perfect as it had a wonderful mix of ocean and jungle. The rooms are really nicely designed and you wake up to some beautiful views of the ocean!

All the staff at Pura Vida are really caring and kind and the food is delicious – especially if you are looking to nourish your body with some nutritious, organic deliciousness! I was also fortunate enough to meet many other beautiful visitors while staying there as there place definitely attracts muy buena onda!

I highly recommend this place for anyone looking forward to some relaxing and healing space. I will definitely be back!”

What’s the Accommodations like?

Example of an Open Air Double Occupancy Room.

When you put down your deposit, you’ll choose whether you’d prefer Open Air or With Air-Conditioning.

Many of the rooms are an Open Air style with only three walls allowing for a view of the ocean and jungle – offering circulation of fresh, unpolluted air. 

Our retreat venue is truly a gem. The rooms are located in a jungle and a tropical garden situated on the hill just at the ocean shore.

Most of the rooms have breathtaking views of the ocean and Yelapa bay – they were built literally just above the ocean. Each room is unique with its own  special character.

Their beds are fitted with organic metal-free mattresses, organic, hypoallergenic pillows, organic bed sheets and mosquito nets.

All cabins are spacious and individually designed with soft white LED lighting– good for your eyes and health.

Each bathroom comes equipped with a waterfall shower, hot water, and natural stone and tile details

The AC rooms come with sliding glass doors. 

February in Yelapa is very pleasant, with comfortable ocean breeze and very little bugs, so neither the glass doors nor AC are needed, but if you’d like to have more amenities at your fingertips, go with the Air Conditioned rooms. 

Whether you’d love a boho-chic open-air palapa or a fully enclosed AC room, the earlier you book, the more choices in accommodations you’ll have.
