Join me for a Costa Rican beach retreat in the coastal town of Samara, Feb 11th – 17th 2025.

Samara and its 4km long beach offers the perfect atmosphere to relax and recentre. You will be staying in a beachside property in a quieter part 2km outside of town, overlooking the beach and the Chora Island with its white sands and coral waters.

*please note we will not be using transport other than foot or bike to get into town 2km away, this will all happen via the beach. This is Pura Vida, this is pure life, simple life.

”I can’t remember the last time I felt this relaxed, even though I am moving my body more than I usually do, my mind feels so relaxed” quote from this years client.



The accommodation is a 4 bedroom house, a stone throw from the beach, with views a plenty. There is a large outdoor area suitable for body movement sessions, deep stretching and meditation. During our 6 night stay here we will take part in a variety of activities, including: sunrise beach runs and body weight workouts, morning deep stretch routines, optional beach bike rides and plenty of walking. There is a variety of optional extras, kayaking, wildlife tours, deep tissue massage at the house, bike hire and yoga classes in town, all to be discussed when booking.

I will be preparing a HUGE breakfast and evening meal daily, using the local, fresh produce, which we will enjoy from the comfort of the private accommodation. This is a 4 bedroom property, and my aim is to make this an exclusive retreat, so it’s only single occupancy unless couples book, I believe that having the privacy and luxury of your own space is so important in this experience, so this means numbers will be limited.



Please note, the house does not have air-conditioning, each bedroom has ceiling fans and large windows that open with mosquito nets, so windows can be open day and night to allow the breeze to circulate. The house is a large but humble property, without mod cons of TV and gadgets, allowing you to engage in the views, the beach and the mindfulness that disconnection with all these things can offer. Please see photos and ask for more if needed.

The house has WIFI and will be cleaned every two days by the housekeeper Roxanne.



We will spend this time getting to know the local area, and the local daily sellers. Optional daily morning walks or bike rides into Samara town to pick up some fresh coconuts, hoping to bump into the empanada man on the beach and buying fresh fruit smoothies before the 2km walk back. On a Saturday we will walk into town to visit the local organic market sampling local prepared food, fruits and veggies, local crafts, clothes and much more.



This escape is a detoxification of the mind focusing on movement for wellness. Disconnection from daily stresses and pressure while re connecting with yourself and nature. Allowing the week to be simply Pura Vida, PURE LIFE, SIMPLE LIFE.

It’s amazing how each time I visit this magical place I simplify my life even more, spending more time mindfully and less time wanting.
