Reconnect with nature

Forest Therapy

It is not uncommon for us to spend 95% of our days surrounded by four walls. Humans have adapted to live without nature, but this is not our design. The practice of shinrin-yoku, which in Japanese means “immersing in the forest atmosphere”, is an opportunity to remember that we are part of nature, and it is part of us.

Conducted on our private trails, this is not a fitness hike, but rather an effortless engagement of the senses and an invitation to be acutely aware of the earth, trees, air and sky.

Our guide will lead you through a process of reconnection to the natural environment, allowing you to reap the physical, emotional and psychological benefits it offers. Reserve time to commune with the living and breathing forest, and emerge refreshed, relaxed and revived.

*Approximately 2 hours

RECEIVE NATURE’S GIFT

Cacao Ceremonies

Enjoy the benefits of ceremonial cacao thoughtfully prepared with cinnamon, cardamom, cayenne pepper and cane sugar. Choose to ignite through ecstatic dance or rest deeper with sound healing.

Ecstatic Dance

This exploration begins with a group circle to connect and strengthen your intentions before ingesting and activating the cacao through heart opening breathing exercises. Celebrate together through dance therapy, releasing layers of resistance and sharing in the joy of dance. Flow through two waves of movement, the first with latin and jungle rhythms and the second with atmospheric and gentle energy.

*Approximately 2 hours

Sound Healing

Welcome the spirit of cacao with chakra toning and sound vibrations along this guided journey into the heart. This is a celebration ceremony guiding you to receive high vibrations from the cacao and inviting you to connect with your higher self. The sound of the crystal and Tibetan bowls, tuning forks, and mystical chimes will relax you and take you on a deep healing journey.

BLISS IN THE JUNGLE

Hot Springs

The charming town of La Fortuna is famously known as the gateway to the iconic Arenal Volcano. Having first erupted in 1968 and its lava last sighted in 2010, today it is considered dormant, but its internal thermal activity permits the Tabacón River to provide naturally heated and mineralized water to nearby hot springs. This is an exotic getaway you surely do not want to miss!

Tabacón

Naturally flowing thermal springs flow over dozens of waterfalls and form warm relaxing pools amidst the beautiful rainforest. Let the sounds and sights of the native flora and fauna flood your senses. In the tranquility of this award-winning resort you are sure to feel uplifted and refreshed.

Baldí

Credited as the world’s largest hot springs resort, this therapeutic oasis is made up of 25 individual thermal pools. Varying in temperature and complete with swim-up bars and water slides, this expansive retreat surrounded by tropical fauna offers something for everyone.

Complement your journey with a stop in the quaint town of La Fortuna with its many boutique shops or visit the picturesque La Fortuna waterfall, reached only by descending down a series of steps through a tropical rainforest.

A LOCAL FAVORITE

Farmer´s Market

A visit to this bustling weekly affair is an excellent introduction to Costa Rican culture and local life. Wander the stalls and meet the farmers who have worked the land for generations.
