Welcome to The Retreat Costa Rica


Experience the healing energies of a Costa Rica wellness retreat located in a rainforest and a crystal quartz mountain - a world-class, nature-inspired, holistic healing oasis that will nourish and renew your mind, body, and soul. 

The Retreat Costa Rica is the innovation of celebrity chef, best-selling author, and health and wellness life-coach, Diana Stobo. Her goal was to create a transformational wellness center that has since become a distinctively Costa Rican experience of “Heaven on Earth” — a resort and spa where our guests experience a harmony of nature, nutrition, and wellness nestled among the lush vegetation of the rainforest.  

To start the guest experience with a sense of relaxation, all of our pricing includes three meals at our restaurant, Boca Dulce. We offer signature wellness programs, spiritual retreats, Ayurveda retreat, and gastronomic innovations among the soothing rhythms of nature and the stunning views of the tropical Costa Rican rainforest valley, Nicoya Peninsula, and the Pacific Ocean. Whether you’re being pampered at Vida Mía, our luxury Ayurvedic Healing Spa, nourished by a daily yoga class with one of our resident teachers, or savoring our organic, garden-fresh cuisine sourced from the crystal quartz mountainside, The Retreat Costa Rica is mindfully designed to strengthen, nourish, and renew you — carrying you from wherever you are - to wherever you wish to be!

Wellness Packages


To start the guest experience with a sense of relaxation, all of our pricing includes three meals at our restaurant, Boca Dulce. ​Our wellness packages and retreat experiences are designed for transformational results.  Whether you are simply visiting to feel the vibrational healing of the Crystal Quartz Mountain, engage in a delicious healthy gastronomical experience, move deeper into your yoga practice, get back into nature by connecting on hikes through deep lush tropical mountains, or you wish to dive deeper into to detox, healing, fat burning, Ayurveda balancing or even reconnection with a loved one, The Retreat Costa Rica offers a package to meet your goals. 


Organic and Fresh Everyday

Our menus are Chefs Choice based on what is fresh, inspiring, and thoughtful.   We strive for 100% organic and fresh, with most of our produce grown on the property.  We are primarily plant-based, with local, sustainably raised fish, fowl, beef, and lamb. All foods are grain-free, dairy-free (occasional goat yogurt and cheese) and use no refined sweeteners.
