Retreat location

This retreat will take place at OM at Cashew Hill, Puerto Viejo de Talamanca in Costa Rica.

There is no place in the world more flavorful than the southern Caribbean area of Costa Rica. Puerto Viejo is a laid back village that moves to a reggae beat. Shirts and shoes are optional at many restaurants.

The beaches are never crowded and offer lots of activities including surfing, snorkeling, biking, hiking, gourmet restaurants, wildlife, and friendly people, all of which will make this your favorite vacation spot (people often return once they have visited Puerto Viejo).

Puerto Viejo is a fun, inexpensive place to spend a weekend, week, or month! Rent a bicycle and see it all. You can also take a bus or hire a guide for great day trips.

How to get there

Arrival by airplane

You need to book flights to Juan Santamaria Airport (SJO) in San Jose. From here to Puerto Viejo, you can rent a car and drive, take a bus, a shuttle, or a taxi.

Arrival by bus

The local bus is called the MEPE. It costs about 11 USD. You will have to take a taxi to the bus station (that can be 20 USD).

Shared shuttle service is about 59 USD per person. It is an air conditioned van that holds up to six people. It will pick you up across from the airport or at your hotel and deliver you to Cashew Hill. It only has two pick-up times - 07:20 or 14:30.

You can also take a private shuttle. These hold up to eight people and cost 230 USD for one to six people (add 10 USD per person for more). Depending on your party size and what you want for privacy this can be a great option.

There is also a very cost effective way to use the private shuttle for two people or to just have a blast on your way to Puerto Viejo! If you plan on a tour for rafting, kayaking, hiking, etc. there is a package that includes an airport or hotel pick up before the activity and then will deliver you to Puerto Viejo after the activity. They store your luggage and feed you as well. These packages start at 99 USD per person. You get a great trip and transportation for a fraction of the cost.

Cancellation Policy

  • The deposit is non-refundable, if the booking is cancelled.
  • The rest of the payment should be paid 30 days before arrival.
