Retreat location

Uvita is a small village in southern Costa Rica. It is notable for its location, where the mountains most closely reach the Pacific Ocean, it is the closest village to Marino Ballena National Park (40 minutes walking, or a 5 minute taxi ride). This tropical hamlet possesses great charm in an unspoiled and serene atmosphere. With palm trees swaying in the wind, providing shady relief from the intense Pacific sun, there is plenty of outdoor options in this tropical paradise.
