Rancho Margot generates well over half of all food consumed by workers, residents and guests onsite. Often producing well over 75% and we aim for more. We do not purchase processed foods of any kind. Mayonnaise, mustard and ketchup are all made from scratch as are all of our sauces. Vinegar is made from our own bananas and plantains. Oils are either local 100% coconut or sunflower, or imported 100% olive . Our breads typically contain gluten but we are always glad to make special gluten free preparations upon request. We are experimenting with in-country, chemical free tubers for gluten-free flour all the time. We harvest fresh vegetables and fruits by hand, harvest/finish all dairy products and butcher 100% of meats, all within walking distance of our kitchen. The processing that occurs between our farm and kitchen is minimal; the attention to production and detail is extensive and ensures freshness and quality. Needless to say, it also greatly reduces waste. Just take a peek into our kitchen. It’s easy as our kitchen’s open layout invites you to watch us work. With one refrigerator and one freezer, we have mastered the art of fresh, right-sizing meal preparation.


Rancho Margot is pretty much equidistant to either one of our international airport - both LIR and SJO. Ground transportation is not included in the package, but we can help you arrange it.

Why Retreat?

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

My inspiration is to find some very much needed solace away from the stress of raising 4 children, working (as a dietitian) and trying to get my private nutrition counseling practice launched. I am a registered yoga instructor and have practiced for over 10 yrs, and have always dreamed of taking a yoga retreat just for my own inner well being. Linda

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.
