Costa Rica 2019

In Costa Rica, the good life is called “pura vida.” For those who live there, pura vida is a daily fact of life in this beautiful, exotic, and surprisingly affordable country.

Yoga – Pilates – Power Walks – Amazingly Fresh Food – Great Friends

Come explore and leave exhilirated!

Costa Rica has stolen my heart…this will be my 6thweek in Manuel Antonio.  The town of Manuel Antonio is gorgeous…and you will see a mix of locals and tourists, it is not a busy place and everyone literally “takes time to smell the roses” here.   We will be greeted by our personal concierge, chef, and housekeeper!  Expect to be well taken care of on this trip J

Can’t wait to introduce you to my friends in Costa Rica!!!



February 23 – March 2, 2019 (Saturday to Saturday)



Our In-House Chef will prepare a healthy start to our day.


If you take any excursions, a fresh, healthy lunch is generally included.  Manuel Antonio also has great places for lunch as well as grocery shops if you want to prepare something at our house. Grocery Shops and restaurants are accessible by foot if you want some exercise or cabs are super easy and I can help you with that process J.   There is also a convenient and very nice beach bar and restaurant that we have access to. It is a quick walk or they will arrange a shuttle for pick up.


Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, & Friday – Our In-House Chef will prepare

Tuesday’s Dinner is “On Your Own” an Opportunity To Explore Local Restaurants

Thursday’s Dinner will be on The Catamaran

Other Snacks etc…

Grocery Shops sell ALL types of beverages and our house is fully stocked with kitchen supplies such as blenders JRaise Your VIBE Retreats are non-judgement zones – this is YOUR time and I want you to enjoy!   This is a BYOB experience.





We have a gorgeous covered veranda for group classes that overlooks the Pacific. Pilates, Yoga, and Power Walks are optional and subject to change based on group dynamics – again, no judgement zone. J Costa Rica is an early to bed and early to rise country approximately 10 degrees north of the equator with sunrise around 5:40AM and sunset 5:40PM.  Lots of unscheduled time to explore the natural beauty of Costa Rica, deepen friendships, meet new people, and explore your inner bad ass!  This is about raising your VIBE!



A Group Catamaran Cruise is scheduled for Thursday and included in the price.  The house, private grounds, and beach, are all breath-taking so extra excursions are not needed to have an amazing time; however, exploring the country is a blast.  We can talk more about your personal goals individually.  I will coordinate with the group and get all reservations organized for you, payment is made the day of the outing.  Most outings that are more than 3 hours will include a healthy, fresh lunch…these tours generally are in the 8:30 – 4:00PM time frame and short adventures like surfing and paddle boarding will depend on tide schedule.  Best Day for a longer excursion is Wednesday, certainly Monday, Tuesday, and Friday are options as well and I will help you plan based on YOUR desires.  You will be picked up and droppedoff at our door.




Room Selection is First Come First Serve – All are beautiful and spacious with private bathrooms and double sinks…the house has many places to escape on your own with patios, verandas, porches, etc…to read a book or sneak in a nap.  There are a limited number of Roll-Away Beds that are available to go in any of the King Bed Bedrooms as they are a little larger.

3rdFloor: 3 Bedrooms: 1 with King Bed and 2 with 2 Queen Beds in Each

2ndFloor: 3 Bedrooms: 1 with King Bed and 2 with 2 Queen Beds in Each

Room Cost For Double Occupancy $1699 Per Person*

*Additional $150 For a Room on the 3rdFloor – All Rooms Have Private Bathrooms with Double Vanity & Double Sinks and Views … these are just higher so views are that much sweeter and location more convenient to pool and living areas on the 4thFloor.

Getting to Manuel Antonio:Plan your flight to arrive in San Jose, Costa Rica around 12:30PM, if you want to be in a private group van which I will help coordinate.  Delta, American, and Southwest all fly in at that time. Transportation from San Jose to the house is not included as you have multiple options.  You can opt for a commuter plane to Quepos then 15-minute cab ride to Manuel Antonio or take public transportation or join in on a group van from San Jose to Manuel Antonio.  I have personally only ever arrived by van.  It is an opportunity to see the country and our house will not be ready until 4PM.  The vans are NICE and drivers will stop at stores or restaurants as the group requests. The cost of a private group van is based on number but tends to run $35 each way when people arrive similar times.

Canopy Safari ZipLine


Whitewater Rafting
