Why Visit Costa Rica

Known for its beautiful beaches, volcanoes and biodiversity, Costa Rica is a nature lover’s paradise!  A quarter of the land is made up of national parks and protected jungle, the largest in the world as a percentage of the country’s territory. Home to a rich variety of flora and fauna and diverse wildlife including spider monkeys, the quetzal bird and the three-toed sloth, Costa Rica has only 0.03% of the world’s landmass, but is estimated to contain 5% of the world’s biodiversity. Costa Rica offers a variety of landscapes, microclimates and something for everyone. Whether it is adventure, enjoying some of the best surfing, hiking or relaxation that you are seeking, this location will provide it all.

Pura Vida

The spirit of Costa Rica embraces the ‘Pura Vida’ lifestyle. Meaning ‘Pure Life’, this mantra permeates the lifestyle and is the heart of Costa Rica’s cultural appeal. Relax into the easy going vibes of this beautiful land and find freedom of heart. We will explore yogic purification techniques and feast on the abundance of fresh tropical fruits and vegetables available that will provide the cleansing that your body needs. This program emphasizes the purification of mind, body and spirit.
