Feel at home in quiet comfort, cradled by nature amidst the mango trees and sounds of the living forest in your beautifully appointed suite. Allow yourself to truly relax in the peace and security of the Costa Rican mountains.
A birdwatcher’s paradise, we will be among three lush acres of mountain forest – home to two types of toucans and hundreds of varieties of birds and butterflies. The white-face monkeys swing between the trees in the early mornings, and scarlet macaws squawk as they fly across the valley. A stream, hiking trails with stunning views, dozens of mango trees and reforested pochote hardwood are all part of the tropical ecology. Please contact your hosts for the specific address and resort details.
Tastefully designed and decorated for you to enjoy the serenity of your surroundings, each suite features one or two queen beds, a spacious private bath with shower/bath tub, and your very own terrace and garden with outdoor seating. Hardwood furniture and a locally harvested teak wood ceiling bring the ambiance of the forest into your room.
You can enjoy some of the freshest foods in all of Costa Rica served on a balcony overlooking soothing sceneries. Enjoy International Cuisine nourishment, with an emphasis on fresh fruits and vegetables, some home-grown in organic gardens. You have the opportunity to consult with a professional nutritionist/herbalist about a diet that is best for you and begin implementing that protocol while you are here at the Retreat. Vegan, vegetarian, fresh fish or hormone-free chicken dishes are available.
We will gather specific details regarding dietary needs before the retreat and are able to accommodate individual needs.
Spa treatments. Yoga classes. Wellness services. Gourmet meals with local and organic ingredients. Adventure excursions – fly like Superman on the zip-line, visit a private waterfall, ride horseback through the rainforest, or catch some surf at the beach! Included in your package is a day trip to a jungle tour, the local beach and surf town, plus a visit to a waterfall and swimming hole. We will participate in an welcome orientation for guests to sign up for additional adventures if desired.
