Welcome to your oasis for the week. Enjoy breathtaking views and lavish rooms at this private luxury villa.
Very few words can describe my first trip to Costa Rica. Breathtaking excursions, laughter and true friendships formed during my time there and cannot say enough great things about Reggie and Brittany!!!
Everything exceeded any and all expectations –from the travel planning, excursions, HIIT workouts, yoga, every meal and accommodations. I am looking forward to the next trip!
If you add zip lining, I’m in! Experiencing Costa Rica for the first time – its fabulous food, gracious people, and incredible scenery – was made better by the thoughtful planning and care of our coaches, Reggie and Brittany. Thank you both for sharing your passion, knowledge, and energy! We arrived as a group; we left as a family!
I had not tried HIIT before but was up for the challenge! From the second I arrived, I felt welcomed and included. Strangers quickly became friends. The workouts were intense, the yoga restorative, the pool refreshing, the food delicious, the excursions thrilling, the hearts open, and the views amazing.
Every day there was a jaw dropping activity that allowed you to become one with the nature surroundings, and not to mention the private chefs had touched my taste buds like no other. As a yogi I felt the combination of both yoga and HITT gave me an overall balance to my physical health. Don’t question should I or shouldn’t I go, just book your flight and everything else will feel just right 😎
I’ve never done HIIT before, and I am a complete beginner in yoga. Thankfully, Reggie and Brittany were so patient and helpful with me. And the encouragement from everyone pushed me to keep going. The pictures don’t do it justice. You need to go to see for yourself, and it’ll be worth it!
All Canadian, US and EU citizens who travel to Costa Rica for tourism need a valid passport. Please check your passport to make sure you have at least 6 months validity from the time you enter Costa Rica. If it is not, you should get your passport renewed before you arrive. A visa is not required.
For international travellers, please arrive at San Jose Costa Rica (SJO) prior to 2pm Central Time on the day of the retreat.
When you leave Costa Rica, you will have to pay a departure tax of US$29. It must be paid at Juan Santamaria International Airport before going through airport security. The tax is payable in either colones, U.S. dollars, or with Visa/Mastercard.
Upon your arrival into San Jose at Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJO), you will be collected by our private driver with the rest of the group. The group will travel down by bus to Ojochal. The drive is 3.5 hours and there will be a stop midway to eat and use the restrooms.
Colones is the official currency of Costa Rica, although US dollars are widely accepted. Items and activities purchased at Ojochal can be charged to your room and paid with a credit card at the end of your stay. The amount of local currency that you need depends on how much you intend to spend on extra purchases outside of the property.
For Americans, it is really not necessary to convert any money to colones as all businesses happily accept U.S. dollars (however, expect your change to be in colones). In fact, we suggest that you do NOT change any money and bring several smaller bills so you do not receive any change. The current rate of exchange fluctuates around 500 colones for every 1 U.S. dollar.
If you are entering Costa Rica from South America, you will be required to show proof of having a yellow fever vaccination. Otherwise, you do not need any vaccinations or shots to visit Costa Rica.
Spanish is the official language of Costa Rica, although English is widely understood.
Because Costa Rica is blessed with wonderful weather year round, there really isn't a "best" time to visit. Though most guidebooks list the ideal time to ravel to Costa Rica as December through May, we enjoy a stable climate of 75-85 degrees year-round.
*Laundry will be available at the villa.
