Costa Rica Retreat Accommodations :

Upon arrival into San Jose opening and closing nights we will be staying at this beautiful hotel close to the airport for ease of travel to the Osa Peninsula on our domestic flights (included in the package). One of the best restaurants in the area is right in our hotel so you are able to enjoy dinner right at the hotel or you can venture into the city of San Jose to explore on your own if you’d like. Private rooms are available for an upgrade at this location.

For the following 5 nights we will be staying at the foot of the majestic Corcovado National Park is Cabo Matapalo, a small beach community perfectly nestled between the warm Pacific Ocean and the dense tropical rainforest. Find yourself in a naturally created corridor where the density of animals is greater than anywhere else in the country.  You will be staying at Ojo Del Mar Ecolodge, a lovely relaxed beachfront ecolodge with impressive views of the ocean and lush primary rainforest. You’ll have your own comfy bed within one of our spacious shared cabanas or ask for a private beach nest if available. Wake up to the sound of howler monkeys in the distance and exotic birds showing off their bright colors while flying overhead. Everywhere you’ll look, you’ll see abundant wildlife and incredible scenery.


Each of our thatched cabanas are unique and offer various accommodation styles. If you are traveling solo, we’ll pair you with other fun and adventurous travel buddies in one of our spacious cabanas that features 2 to 4 individual beds surrounded by netting for added privacy.


Want more privacy? We may be able to offer you your own floor in a shared cabana or even one of our simple beach nests for total privacy. Book early for a chance at a free upgrade. All cabanas feature a private washroom and shower area fully integrated into the landscape. You can even spot monkeys from your shower!

The restaurant is a beautiful bamboo structure designed to perfection. Enjoy delicious exotic fruits, freshly picked vegetables and locally inspired foods from Costa Rica. Meals are served buffet-style accompanied by freshly squeezed juices at breakfast, as well as tea and locally grown coffee. This escape is perfect for anyone that loves great food, enjoys great company and wants to step into the real beauty of Costa Rica.

The salt filtered pool and ocean are just at your doorstep. Step out to find the warm waters of the Golfo Dulce where you can spot swimming dolphins in the near distance or head out on your board to try some surfing!

Our yoga platform is naturally nestled within this lush landscape offering you views of the vibrant tropical rainforest. During practice, you’ll likely be visited by troops of monkeys so be prepared for a fun show!

Costa Rica Travel Tips Guide


1.  Each time you plan to search for flights you should ‘Clear Browsing Data’ from your device.  Google how to here. This deletes any previous searches from your computer so you get a fresh start with pricing out flights.

2.  There is a sweet spot for buying airline tickets 6 weeks before your trip on a Tuesday.

3.  Huffington Post also has these suggestions that might be helpful.

4.  I usually book my flights with Google Flights to find the best dates and rates for travel. I put an alert on the search so it keeps me updated via email when pricing is rising or falling. It’s a good way to keep an eye out and buy when the price is optimal.


Flights should be into and out of San Jose International Airport in Costa Rica. The airport code is SJO.

Remember your domestic flight within Costa Rica is included in your package and will be arranged by us once you reserve.
