Living Forest Lake Arenal Retreat Center

About This Center

Welcome to Living Forest, a newly built Lodge & Retreat center, where you wake up to the sound of a river and jungle with tropical birds and monkeys often in sight. Come and relax or use us as a base for exploring the Lake and Volcano Arenal area!     

We host yoga, transformational and healing retreats, dance and movement, art & creativity, meditation and other spiritual retreats. We also offer weekly yoga classes and other events for the community and visitors.               

We are happy to invite you to Costa Rica to experience this beautiful country, abundant wild life and its warm and friendly people. We are looking forward to having you stay with us at Living Forest in Lake Arenal!


Living Forest Lodge has 3 rooms, each sleeping max 4 people. We have two large bathrooms with hot water. One wall is open to the nature.

The River View Casita has 2 double rooms each with a king bed for couples or two separate individual beds, a private bathroom with an own little garden. The river side of the casita has a veranda where you can enjoy the jungle and wildlife just in front of you.

All rooms have fans and screens on the windows.

Why Retreat?

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

I'm having a baby in October and want to focus my practice so I can be present and calm! Laine

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.
