Pura Fruta Family Health and Detox Retreat
We are a family and child centered fruitarian community located in the peaceful village of Cahuita, on the Atlantic shore of Costa Rica.
As families with young children Ourselves, we know how hard it can be for parents to find time for their own health while not depriving the children of meaningful time together and the best care…
Now it is possible!
While the parents take time for their water/coconut water/juice fasting or detoxing on fruit, read spiritual books and attend educational workshops, exercise and receive massage,
their children spend time in Fruitarian community, learning healthy lifestyle from living examples, the way children really learn, inspired and supported by a team of dedicated adults and young play pals committed to Non-Violent way, be it in food, approach to mother nature, or communicating with each other.

ScheduleWe arrive early morning to pick up the kids from your cabin, and if relevant drop your juice/meals supply for the day.
With the children we are quite flexible... if no special event scheduled, we usually go for a swim while the sun is still not too high, then walk to the community for breakfast and activities on community property. In the afternoon we would walk to the national park, play by the ocean, or local playgrounds.
On other days we would drive the children to the jungle to play by a creek, visit wild life centers, or meet playpals from outside the community.
