Our Retreat Center and Nature Reserve
The Choza is known for its magic as a place to disconnect from busy lives and re-connect with ourselves, each other and with our place in nature. As human population and progress encroach on the the Earths finite resources, species are on the decline, our communities face declining wellbeing, and invaluable cultural knowledge and skills are lost, leaving us unable to live in balance with our world.
La Choza is dedicated to nature, the protection of it and offers a variety of ways for individuals and groups to connect, and live with nature. It is a magical place, which offers much relaxation and focus, off the beaten path, with its own river and waterfalls on property.
We have a large yoga shala, community kitchen and living space, a viewpoint reflective space, and many trails through our onsite farm and jungle, including to an onsite river and waterfalls. Accommodations are two handcrafted wooden bunk rooms (2 people each) and a shared casita (1-2 people). We have both outdoor showers, composting toilets and a private indoor bathroom & shower facility. All our facilities are beautiful handcrafted wooden structures.
What Makes Us Special?
We are a little off the beaten track! Our local community is one of the last indigenous communities left in Costa Rica. This area is a true rural community of Costa Rica, not an area of high tourism. There is much opportunity for cultural exchange, simple jungle life and our nearest neighbor, Mastatal is a mecca for permaculture, with much on offer to learn from Tico and Gringo fincas.
This is a longer retreat of 2 to 3 weeks, for the sole purpose of giving you time for whatever intention you bring to your personal retreat. We offer longer stays for deeper emersion. Our philosophy is to do this at a price that is affordable for many.
