About This Center
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.
our mission is to provide a sanctuary that rekindles a connection with nature and nourishes each guest in mind, body and spirit.
