WHY COSTA RICA’S SOUTHERN ZONE FOR YOUR KATE ROSE RETREAT
Costa Rica is one of the most bio-diverse countries on the face of the Earth and the Southern Zone, located on the southern Pacific coastline, is the most ecologically diverse region within the entire country. Countless species make their home here – Toucans perch on trees outside your window, white-face monkeys bounce playfully along palm tree-lined beaches and the lush, tropical beauty that Costa Rica is famous for is visible at every turn. It is a magical, spiritual place to help you escape from your day to day life experience.
During your free time or if you choose to extend your stay, you will have the opportunity for hiking through the dense jungle, rafting down jungle rivers, zip-lining through the forest canopy, swimming in natural waterfalls and pristine beaches, watching whales with their young, world class sport fishing you can find the greatest experiences Costa Rica has to offer right here. For such a small corner of Costa Rica, there is an amazing range of diversity – in geography, climate, history, wildlife, adventure and social life. We’d be happy to help you book any tours or adventures you might desire.
So that you can experience the most that this region has to offer we have split your retreat week between two magical TidesRight Select™ lodging experiences:
The first location we have selected for your retreat is the famous Rafiki Safari Lodge located on the banks of the pristine Savegre River well up into the tropical rainforest. You’ll be staying at Rafiki for three nights “Glamping” in luxury Safari tent accommodations with an African twist, as the family that runs Rafiki has its roots in Africa.
The second location is the luxury villa Casa Amarilla, a beach area property in Dominical on a small ridge overlooking the Pacific Ocean. You’ll be staying at Casa Amarilla for four nights experiencing ocean breezes, incredible views and beautiful sunsets, while relaxing to the sounds of the jungle in comfort and style.
ABOUT RAFIKI SAFARI LODGE
Rafiki Safari Lodge is nestled in the tropical rain forest on an 843 acre private reserve on the banks of the Savegre River. This unique rainforest ecosystem luxury camping experience is a perfect location for our Costa Rica retreat experience. In the seclusion of the jungle, the opportunities to enjoy your time and focus on yourself or loved ones are endless. Enjoy a float down the Savegre River, horseback rides, nature hikes, world-class birding or relax and utilize the amenities of the lodge itself. Speed down the water slide through the property, soak in our solar powered hot tub, or unwind with yoga, meditation or a massage.
As of 2017 Rafiki is proud of its participation in establishing the Savegre Valley as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. This remarkable achievement highlights the importance of the Savegre ecosystem for Costa Rica and the planet. Not only for the flora and fauna, but also for the human contribution that has allowed the valley to remain so pristine, natural and beautiful. (contact info blocked)
ABOUT CASA AMARILLA
Casa Amarilla is situated on a ridge 100 ft above the Pacific Ocean and Playa Dominical, this 18000 sq ft family compound provides an unequaled tropical ambiance and stunning views. The compound draped by jungle covered mountains affords unsurpassed vistas across the Pacific to the Osa Peninsula. Watch groups of pelicans darting across the waves of Playa Dominical, marine life from humpback whales to dolphins. Walls and gated entrance provide unsurpassed security and privacy. Dominical’s restaurants are a short walk or drive away.
This exclusive compound consists of five separate buildings – the principal living area with 25 ft ceilings houses the kitchen, dining and living rooms. A large covered terrace adjoins this building and offers open air dining and living areas. A two story building with wide covered terraces contains five bedrooms and bathrooms, all with ocean views. A separate building houses the master bedroom which is adjoined through a walled garden to two additional bedrooms. A fourth building contains a large family/entertainment area and sleeping loft with king size bed.
After you experience these two incredible lodging experiences we are sure you’ll want to explore more of what Costa Rica has to offer. We’d be happy to assist you in extending your adventure in Costa Rica.
ADVENTURE & EXPERIENCES
A sacred Cacao Ceremony will welcome our retreat members as a collective to connect us to each other for healing, transformation, and celebration. The ceremony creates a sacred space for the intentions of community, gratitude and the opening of the heart. Cacao, or chocolate, is a native plant of Central America with powerful medicinal and spiritual properties.
The famous Rafiki Aqua Hike is an adventure you will never forget. Explore the Savegre River and rainforest, go river rafting, enjoy amazing vistas, see colorful wildlife, swim under 120 foot waterfalls, cross a 340 foot suspension bridge, learn about Costa Rica culture, and try a delicious fire cooked meal in the jungle…all in one amazing experience!

Ladies of Luna Full Moon Ceremony Ladies of Luna, We are created from the stars and as women our bodies naturally attune to the rhythm of the lunar cycles; our bodies over 60% water is greatly affected by the waxing and waning of the moon. To be in synch with ourselves means to be in synch with the moon. Ladies of Luna will be our nightly women’s groups on the beach under the moon, giving up our offerings, prayers and wishes for this new cycle that is about to begin. Ladies of Luna will finish off with a lantern release ceremony under the full moon so that we can truly let ourselves begin a brand-new chapter not just in life-but in what it means to be a woman.
