COSTA RICA 2024
Return to Paradise!
Feb 14 - 22, 2024
8 nights including your first overnight in San Jose & 7 nights at the gorgeous Rio Chirripo!
Rooms start at $2,595 per person
Welcome to the mountains of Costa Rica! Here at the rustic luxury of Rio Chirripo Lodge you will find stunning views of mountain peaks, a bustling river with a swimming hole and exotic birds just outside your room. Take in the sounds of the river, sunbathe by the pool or relax in the wood-fired hot tub.
Did we mention a massage room that overlooks the river? Or delicious healthy meals including an abundance of vegetables, juicy tropical fruits, homebaked breads and fresh fish—all crafted to delight the palate and the senses? You may just find your heaven here.
This year's trip will include more yoga and more free time! We'll have one full day off mid-week for you to do whatever you choose, including the option for an excursion to the unbelievably beautiful Nauyaca Waterfall led by our Costa Rican hosts Angus and Tania.
We’ve limited this trip to 16 people to ensure the most enjoyable and meaningful group experience possible. Come with a friend or make new ones!
