We will be staying at Peace Retreat in the town of Playa Negra, Costa Rica. Peace Retreat is owned and operated by two Canadians living in Costa Rica who are inspired every day by nature’s beauty, simplicity and harmony.  We’ll be staying near the beach but in the jungle, with howler monkeys as neighbors, in the quiet town of Los Pargos, Playa Negra, situated along the stunning Pacific Gold Coast in the Province of Guanacaste. It’s a tranquil environment infused with the generous local Costa Rican ‘Pura Vida’ spirit. Surrounded by nature and a 15-minute walk to the ocean, it’s the ideal location to de-stress, reset, feel part of a local community, discover something new, make new friends, and reconnect with what matters most to you.

The magic of Peace Retreat is surprisingly easy to get to. We are only an hour from Liberia International Airport and ground transportation from LIR is included in your trip cost.
