About Hacienda Barrigona

A breathtaking 500-acre nature lover’s playground, Hacienda Barrigona is surrounded by lush jungle and the secluded Barrigona Beach where guests are invited to explore, create, play, celebrate life or simply do nothing at all. It's a setting where one can disconnect from the digital world and the distractions of everyday living. Comprised of 10 bedrooms spread across three villas, Hacienda Barrigona is both wonderfully private yet at the same time a communal space for an intimate group experience. 

The hotel is located 30 minutes from the town of Nosara, within the beautiful province of Guanacaste in the Nicoya Peninsula. Nicoya is regarded as one of the world’s Blue Zones, where life expectancies of residents tend to surpass 100 years of age.

What We Love

Tucked into the jungle canopy, Hacienda Barrigona is a truly unique setting. The breathtaking sweeping views over Barrigona Beach alone are worth the trip. This is a place where you can detach yourself from everyday life and become totally immersed in the natural beauty of Costa Rica. A refuge of relaxation with a sense of community at its core. This area of the world has a reputation as one of Central America’s leading yoga meccas. The soul-soothing sights, sounds and ambiance of the jungle landscape act as the perfect catalyst for a deep state of serene awareness. There are two Bali-inspired open-air yoga shalas that are perfect for practicing yoga or meditation. And the warm and surfable waves almost 365 days a year make this the perfect surf getaway spot for those of all levels. Hacienda Barrigona is a place where guests can genuinely disconnect from distractions and find freedom.
