Discover Your Adventure-Costa Rica

About This Event

A Pura Vida Experience

Located in Central America, Costa Rica is named the happiest place on earth. This may be due to their philosophy, Pura Vida which means “pure life.”

Envision the rush of a canopy zipline, sundazed afternoons at the beach, stand up paddle boarding down the river, snorkeling in the crystal clear Caribbean Sea, befriending chatting monkey as you trek through the dense rainforest jungles…

Come experience Shinrin Yoku, or forest bathing/rainforest therapy- scientifically proven to remove blockages caused by stress, anxiety and depression promoting positive healing, rejuvenation and transformation.

Costa Rica has everything to offer that you need to experience that internal shift you have been looking for.

As they say in Costa Rica, “Pura Vida, Mae.” Relax and enjoy this once in a lifetime adventure.

The Location:

Samasati is located in the Southern Caribbean of Costa Rica on the first ridge of the Talamanca mountains in the dense and luscious rainforest surrounded by volcanoes, diverse wildlife and beautiful pristine beaches. The bustling and lively town of Puerto Viejo is a short 20 minute taxi ride away with stunning beaches, world class surf, Caribbean culture, restaurants and nightlife.  The nearest white sand pristine beach is a 10 minute drive where you will relax and enjoy soaking up the Caribbean Costa Rica Vibes.

You will stay at Samasati Eco-Friendly Nature Resort in our Caribbean style deluxe villas with your own private terrace and hammocks, surrounded by 200 acres of beautiful rainforest wildlife and views of the Caribbean Sea. There is plenty of hiking and exploring within the sanctuary grounds where you can see monkeys, sloths, lizards, snakes, spiders and other exotic creatures. Each day, you will receive 3 vegetarian buffet style meals that are organic and directly from the local farm on site.

What more can you ask for in this beautiful healing rainforest eco sanctuary?

Why Retreat?

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

Recenter, Rebalance, Renew..... I cannot provide nurture and wisdom to the people I love without the opportunity to fill up my own cup. Diane

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.
