Liberia airport is a 1.5-hour journey from the property, while San Jose airport is 3.5 hours away. It is situated five minutes from Lake Arenal, which offers a plethora of activities, restaurants, and excursions. The Living Forest Retreat Center has established a reputation as a premier venue for hosting world-class international retreats, as well as with local businesses in need of accommodations and with Airbnb.

This secluded retreat center, situated in an old-growth forest just minutes from Lake Arenal, is an invitation to those who desire to experience Pura Vida.  A symphony of sound and nature oasis awaits you, with the Sabalo River flowing on two sides and a 600-foot jungle wall adjoining. Hummingbirds, toucans, howler monkeys, and other species that inhabit the property are supplied with sustenance by the fruit trees and ornamental plants.

  • This 5 building, 1.5-acre campus (6,292 sq meters) was started in 2012 as a wellness-focused destination for travelers and as a resource for the local community. Situated in a serene and protected spot the property is a rare jewel for so many reasons. 
  • Lots of tour options in the Arenal cluster, from waterfalls, horseback riding, the national parks like Arenal, Tenorio, and Monteverde. Tico wind and kite surfing, hanging bridges, etc.
  • The eco-designed buildings take advantage of the year-round temperate air. Many of the bathrooms, the yoga deck and dining spaces are designed as open-air covered spaces.
  • Screened bedrooms accommodate up to 24 people with 9 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms.  There are 2 kitchens, 2 dining areas, an office, garage, and a cedar sauna.  The Main Lodge can host even larger groups for day retreats.
  • The Nordic Sauna — with an intermittent dip in the river footsteps away— is a treasured amenity. 
  • This retreat has an excellent reputation and a successful digital footprint.
  • ​5 buildings with 9 bedrooms, 2 kitchens, 1 kitchenette, 9 bathrooms

Peter’s perspective on this jewelry retreat. It was a hit with both my kid and me. A lot of room and property details. Unwind in the middle of nature with a view of a jungle wall, a relaxing sauna, and a refreshing river plunge. My kid loved the yoga classes. Possible hideaway with a lot of potential.
