Daily Yoga Class, Meditation & Sound Healing

This isn't a "yoga retreat", so we won't be doing anything too crazy! But each morning, we'll wake up and meet outside to enjoy the fresh morning air.

We'll gently stretch our bodies to work out any kinks and then we'll practice various simple meditation techniques. You'll experience the benefits of being able to calm your mind and rest your heart, a skill you'll surely find useful back home.

This all is part of the process of rejuvenation, exploration and feeling fully connected to your partner.

Couples Massage

Nothing helps you unwind and get into the vacation spirit quite like a massage. Enjoy any style of massage you like in the privacy of your room or outside on the deck. Other spa treatments are available for purchase.

We include one 60-minute massage person.

Couples that Play Together, Stay Together.

It's true! Psychological research suggests that couples who play together feel closer, experience more positive emotions, and as a result are happier together.

So we're throwing in lots of adventure!! Choose one to enjoy as a couple.

Try the ultimate adventure of surfing, explore an epic stand up paddleboard tour, or zip line through the jungle canopy. Each couple gets one adventure included.

About This Event

The Adventure You Need to Rekindle Your Romance

You and your partner might be best friends, but even the closest of bonds can be affected by the stress of life. When life gets out of hand, that's when it's most important to make time for you, your partner and your relationship. You need to reignite the spark that's dulled! And sometimes, a date night just isn't enough.

You need adventure to bring you closer and recharge your connection.

Sharing new experiences and adventures reminds couples what attracted them to each other (and it's not bad for your sex life, either!).

We show you the way to adventure and shared thrill....

Have you been married for a long time and feel like you're not able to connect like you're used to?

Are you both caught in the same routine that feels like a rut & that's left you both wanting more from life & from your relationship?

Are you good life partners but feel like that *spark* is gone?

Does sex sometimes feel like a chore?

If you're shaking your head "yes", then this retreat if for you.

Maybe you've raised kids, you've worked hard all your lives, and now is the time you should be enjoying your relationship and time together. Right?

So why do the same issues keep coming up over and over again, holding you back from connecting with your partner and truly feeling fulfilled within your partnership?

Just because you’re in a lull, it doesn’t have to be a life sentence. It’s an invitation to grow deeper and more connected.

These are your golden years.

Don't wait to reconnect and make your relationship as exciting as it once way.

It is possible to do it now!

Explore, Learn & Unwind with your PartnerFeel alive & laugh together while you explore yoga, try surfing or take a SUP tourAttend daily workshops and practice skills with your partner to take home & keep the magic alive

Experience the powers of meditation as you learn to relax & recharge together

You can't afford to NOT invest in your marriage.

Venue Highlights

Imagine you're driving down the main rustic road of Mal Pais, surfers all around, the ocean peaking through the jungle to your right. Your driver turns up a road and you begin to ascend into the jungle, higher and higher.
Soon you arrive to Casa Mango. You enter, and the first thing you notice is that you're surrounded by lush green jungle.
You're taken to your bedroom and you set your stuff down to relax. Ahhh.. you've finally arrived.
Plop down on the luscious bed, kick off your shoes, take a shower and relax with a tropical fruit smoothie or a cold beer before the adventures begin. You'll have time to watch the sunset before dinner, where you'll meet everyone and settle in.
Throughout the week, you'll awaken with the howler monkeys as you enjoy the comfort of luxury within the peace and quiet of the wild and enchanting Costa Rican jungle.
Savor the jungle views during breakfast. Fresh coffee in hand, look out to the horizon and let your worries melt away as the waves of the ocean roll into the shore.
Spend the afternoon bathing in the sun and dipping in and out of the natural tidepools. Come sunset sip on tropical cocktails while watching the sun melt into the horizon leaving a dazzling trail of fire in the sky.
Enjoy gourmet food prepared by our private chef and dine to the sounds of nature and the crashing waves in the distance.


You’ll be staying in a private room in our house with a private entrance and bathroom! Enjoy spectacular ocean views from your private balcony. Hot water, AC, WiFi and more are featured throughout the property.

Optimum Nutrition
Unhealthy eating habits can affect the quality of our emotional and physical lives, and therefore our relationships as well. Discover how delicious and fulfilling eating healthy can be, and you'll be surprised at how good you both feel. We won't be "cleansing" by any means, just enjoying clean, gourmet food prepared by Rima and private chef V Chef Russell Taplin, all made in the home you'll be staying in with love and gratitude. You'll both find that eating healthy is not only good for you, but it's also a fun thing to explore together!

Savor daily fulfilling plant-based breakfast cooked from locally grown, organic produce.

Enjoy ONE gourmet lunch and ONE 3 course dinner prepared by V Chef Russell Taplin. All included.


You will fly into and out of San Jose Airport, Costa Rica, and from there, make your way to Santa Teresa either by commuter flight (recommended) (via Sansa Airlines, Aerobell or Costa Rica Green Airways) or via shuttle or rental car. Travel times depend on which option you take and can be anywhere from 1 hour to 6 hours as we are located remotely on the tip of the Nicoyan Peninsula.

You would fly to Tambor Airport (TMU) and from there, we can arrange a taxi to the house in Mal Pais.

If your flight out of San Jose leaves very early in the morning, it's best to book it for the next morning to enjoy the full benefit of the retreat.
From there, you can make your way leisurely to San Jose and stay near the airport in comfortable, affordable and safe accommodation.
