About The Event

Because of COVID - all retreat dates, and pricing are tenative.

Deep into the elements that define and differentiate destinations, Costa Rica is a pretty sweet place to be. Costa Rica will ignite the senses, cleanse the soul and leave you with an overwhelming sense of Pura Vida, meaning Pure Life.

While this is a very popular thing to be said out loud in response to almost everything whilst in Costa Rica, it is more the essence of the meaning behind the ever so popular saying that Costa Rica embodies.

It symbolizes the idea of simply enjoying life and being happy. It’s no surprise then that Costa Rica is one of the top 10 happiest places on the planet and home to one of only 5 blue zones in the world, designated zones where some of the worlds longest-lived people thrive. These are people that live to 100 and beyond in good health, of sound mind and genuinely happy. There are many things that determine a blue zone, this is why there are only 5 in the whole world however, one of the findings is that all the zones shared a deep appreciation for nature, family and friends and held tightly a sense of time freedom.

Pura Vida is about connection.

This national mantra embodies the most beautiful philosophy we have ever known and why our founder Penny Light choose to make Costa Rica home for 6 years. Pura Vida is all about accepting the beauty in the world no matter what may be happening around you. Pura vida is all about seeing every experience in life as a gift. It’s the essence of Costa Rica and if you can learn to embrace it, Costa Rica will surely embrace you.

In Costa Rica the hours are gloriously long and moments even seem to stand still because here, you can feel each second. Here, in Costa Rica you naturally fall into step with the pace of nature, and learn its ancient secret of time.

Lush jungle spills onto golden sand beaches. Crashing waves kiss the shore. Divers plunge deep into the ocean. Surfers hide in the tubes. Monkeys shout from the treetops above gushing waterfalls. Volcanoes bubble and erupt over valleys. Butterflies flutter across flower covered mountains. Sunrises and sunsets demand standing ovations. The moon and the stars light up the nights.

Costa Rica is undoubtedly one of the most magical places in the entire world. Costa Rica reminds us how it feels to be truly alive.
