While we accept reservations up until the retreat is fully booked, your placement is based on room availability. If you would like to be placed with a roommate, please let us know and we will do our best to pair you with another participant. Due to the uniqueness of this retreat, we recommend making your reservation at least three months in advance. 

 

The Chirripo is the highest peak in Costa Rica. It is located on the Talamanca Mountain Range and forms part of the Chirripo National Park. Our remote mountain retreat 'La Montana Azul' is tucked deep inside the cloud forest at 5000 feet above sea level.  This spiritual location provides the ultimate mountain retreat setting.

 

The ‘Osa Peninsula’ is located at the most southern tip of Costa Rica, close to the Panama border, and at the entrance to the ‘Corcovado National Park’. The 'Osa' is home to the largest concentration of animal and plant species outside of the Amazon Rainforest, boasting nearly 5 percent of all species. It is listed in National Geographic’s top five naturist destinations. Location, location, location! 'Tumbo' is situated amongst primary rainforest and a stone's throw from the beautiful 'Pan Dulce' (sweet bread) and 'Backwash' beaches and offers a pleasant twist on jungle living.

About Costa Rica

 

Costa Rica is a destination internationally renowned for its friendly and genuine people and spectacular nature. While it may seem remote, Costa Rica is easily accessible from the United States and Canada, and attracts more eco-friendly and holistically oriented tourists each year. “Pura vida” is a characteristic Costa Rican phrase used both as a greeting or farewell, and as an answer to express that things are going well. Pura vida literally means pure life, however, the real meaning is closer to "full of life" or "this is living.” You will quickly see that pura vida is more than just a phrase – it is a way of life for the Ticos (Costa Ricans). You would be hard pressed to find a more friendly and welcoming culture.

 

Costa Rica is not only known for its beauty and ecological tourism, but also as a country whose values reflect many ideals embraced by those of us interested in world peace, environmental preservation, excellent education, and a high standard of health care. Costa Rica is at the forefront of environmental stewardship in Central America. It is committed to a major initiative to decrease its ecological footprint and become a leader in the green movement. It is unique in Central America as it has the longest uninterrupted democracy, no standing army in more than 50 years, and a 95% literacy rate. The official language is Spanish, but many of the people speak some English, a required course in all schools.

 

Even though Costa Rica is a small country, it has almost 5% of the world’s biodiversity. Much of the country is set aside forever into protected National Parks, wildlife refuges and nature reserves. Costa Rica’s year round temperate climate generally ranges from 70 – 80 degrees during the day dropping down to 55 – 65 degrees at night.
