Selva Armonia

Our Mission: To provide a sanctuary that rekindles a connection with nature and nourishes each guest in mind, body and spirit.

Selva Armonia, or “Harmonious Jungle," provides exceptional retreat space deep in the rainforest of Costa Rica,  overlooking the South Pacific Ocean. We are a true eco-lodge combining elegance with a rustic atmosphere in a breathtaking jungle setting.  This space is used for world-class teachers, healers, yogis, facilitators and nature-enthusiasts to celebrate and share their gifts and teachings with others.

The project began with conscious intention in 2006 with the purchase of 35 acres in the pristine mountains of Uvita, Costa Rica, preparing seven .5-1 acre home sites and planning for sustainable living. Our stunning Eco-Retreat Center was completed in 2011. This land and its environmentally conscious architecture has been thoughtfully designed to graciously host your retreat or workshop, or to support your personal re-creation. Selva Armonia provides retreat space for world-class teachers, healers, yogis and facilitators to share their gifts. Whether we are hosting your event or you are a guest in one of our fabulously fun vacation packages, we invite you to enjoy this place as we do.

Arrive at Selva Armonia to find yourself removed from the mundane. With a breathtaking view of the famous Whale’s Tail in the Pacific Ocean, Selva Armonia Retreat Center is a private and sacred space where there is something for everyone. Lead your retreat or workshop in our open-air “floating” bamboo Yoga deck surrounded by peace-invoking edible and botanical gardens. Treat yourself by signing up for a workshop offered by one of our traveling guest teachers (See our Schedule of Events….Coming Oh-So-Soon!). Relax and be pampered where sea-kissed breezes fold into the sweet serenades of jungle song birds and exotic fruits grow on trees right outside your door.  Hike to magical waterfalls, commune with the dragonflies, watch a lotus flower unfold, be inspired to practice your art or blissfully sit and wile away the hours with a good book.

If adventure draws you here, the National Marine Park of Costa Ballena is but a short drive. Explore the area in one of our joyfully crafted vacation packages offering snorkeling, surfing, whale and dolphin watching, horseback-riding, zip-lining canopy tours and infinite hours of sun and beach time.

Whatever your fancy, we support you in creating the retreat that you need and want. Come be in a place world-renowned for its magnificent scenery, gourmet food, enlightening Yoga and an intentional community that is devoted to co-creating the retreat of your dreams.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My inspiration is to find some very much needed solace away from the stress of raising 4 children, working (as a dietitian) and trying to get my private nutrition counseling practice launched. I am a registered yoga instructor and have practiced for over 10 yrs, and have always dreamed of taking a yoga retreat just for my own inner well being. Linda

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
