About us – Who we are! We started Costa Rica Retreat @ Ser La Luz so that we not only can share the beauty of our home with YOU, but so that we can also share our love for Yoga. At Costa Rica Retreat we are here to make your retreat a huge success in many ways. Need someone to lend a hand with a class? Since we are both certified instructors, we are available to do that IF you need us. Your retreat is your retreat.
Costa Rica Retreat is your holistic healing mountain retreat center. We have been awarded Trip Advisors “GREEN ADVISOR” for all our green initiatives. NO a/c OR heat, there is no need for that. We compost and recycle. Our electrical use and hot water is 100% SOLAR.
We are located at an elevation of 4,780 ft half way up the Poas Volcano. The height of the volcano is about 8,000 ft. Breathtaking views of the volcano as well as the valley below. Numerous hiking trails surround this area with a small creek below and an amazing waterfall in walking distance.
Our great room is around 800 sq ft with walls made up mostly of windows so every view is amazing. Enter through our grand 9 ft high custom made wooden doors and let your classes begin. We have a total of 4 bedrooms for your use with 3 of the rooms having their own full bath with showers. Every bathroom is connected to our Solar Hot water so enjoying a nice hot shower is always available. For the 1 bedroom (small bunk room) the guests have to use one of the 2 full bathrooms just off the great room.
Relax on our observation deck above the small bunk room, enjoy our 80 ft long tiled terrace, sit in our meditation area nestled inside our large ornamental ginger area. Our gardens will amaze you with the numerous hummingbirds that visit us. You can even walk through our mini-orchard area and relax. If the season is right then you can pick some lowquats, oranges, mango or guava. We do not use any chemicals in our gardens at all.
Nights can be on the “cool” side in the low to mid 60’s so relax in our jacuzzi OR help yourself to creating a nice cozy fire in our outdoor fire pit.
Want some herbal tea to drink? Check out our herbal garden area and harvest some fresh mint or other herbs for your enjoyment.
What makes Costa Rica Retreat so different? We are a “boutique” retreat center. Which means you get more one on one with your retreat guests. We have accommodations for between 5-20 guests. When you host with us, know that YOUR retreat is the only one that is taking place while you are here. The facility and all it’s gardens are completely yours to enjoy. While other retreat centers focus on how many groups they can host at a time, we like the idea of catering to only 1 group at a time. This is what makes us truly unique. Another is we are not in your typical “tourist” area. Put it all together and this is what makes Costa Rica Retreat so unique.
