Nature Lovers Paradise
This young retreat venue near Dominical offers a unique natural setting and provides a rejuvenating experience for yogis, students, digital nomads, gardeners, nature lovers, and anyone who values natural health and sustainable living. Your group is sure to enjoy the hiking trails traversing the orchards and wilderness surrounding this 30-year-old reforestation project. There are wonders to behold in every direction.
On the periphery, you can escape all sights and sounds of civilization and immerse yourself in the sensations of pure nature. At nearly 200 feet tall, the waterfall onsite is absolutely spectacular, as is the dense jungle around it. Take your group exploring in the old overgrown cacao orchard… You might just discover the troop of white-faced monkeys who feed on its fruit! You might also see wild peccaries, toucans, pizotes, and a colorful array of other flora and fauna.
The center is focused on cultivating environmental and personal health. To support relaxation and healing for guests, the retreat zone was designed to be as tranquil as possible.
At the heart of center is a lodge and gathering space, with a full commercial kitchen and juice bar. Fresh vegetables and herbs can be sourced from the organic gardens on site. Relax in the dining area, hang out in the lounge, and watch movies on the deck with the ultra-bright projector. Give back to Mother Earth in composting toilets. Cleanse yourself in heated outdoor showers.
Balance your mind and body at the yoga deck, which provides space for up to 20 yogis. The deck is equipped with electricity for lighting or music, drinking water, yoga mats, and beautiful forest views. This is a perfect location for meditation, workshops, and movement classes.
The lodge and common area, can comfortably accommodate up to 25 guests, with a laptop-friendly workstation with WiFi available, a balcony, and hammocks with garden and mountain views. There are 3 lovely cabins, each with 2 single beds or they have each can have 1 king bed. There is a comfortable dorm house with 12 bunk-beds (10 single size / 2 double size). Retreat leaders and couples might prefer our two canvas wall tents with wooden floors, screens, and balconies. For larger groups, there are several nice camping sites available.

"We had a group of 12 girls that stayed in the bunk house and it was amazing. The staff was super friendly and made us feel at home. The attention to detail is impeccable from the outdoor area to the kitchen and common areas. We were able to take advantage of the yoga deck for an early morning practice. I highly recommend your stay and I know you will enjoy laying in the hammocks and absorbing the beauty of the outdoors." -- Courtney D
"Just went for a day trip, and had an awesome time! The grounds are amazingly beautiful, the waterfall is one of my favorites out of all I’ve seen in Costa Rica! Super friendly staff and the food was fresh and delicious! We will definitely come back!" -- Molly M
"The waterfall here is way bigger than it appears in the pictures! We had a wonderful stay at the eco-lodge with a free delicious breakfast every morning. Birds, butterflies, monkeys, and of course Copito, were some of the many beautiful creatures we enjoyed during our stay. It’s such a peaceful place to enjoy yoga or hiking to connect with nature. The amazing Dominical beach, perfect for surfing, was just a short 20 minute drive. We will absolutely visit again!" -- Emmy J
"We can't thank you both enough for the amazing hospitality! You have worked incredibly hard to create and amazing retreat away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. We were in awe over your majestic waterfall and felt so welcomed by everyone! It was like being and home and sharing a sense of community with the world! It's a great location for retreats. It really is sustainable living at it's best. Thanks so much for sharing your garden with us and teaching us about permaculture! We can't wait to return!" -- Matt
