Deeply Wholesome Space
Our 4-acre open-air retreat center's riverfront location creates nourishing energy, with the ever-present roar of the Rio Naranjo naturally vibrating stored stresses away.
Your retreat will grant you full and exclusive access to Posada Natura, and all of its grounds. For the duration of your time with us, your people will feel at home in our expansive, but intimate rainforest sanctuary.
Facilities include accommodations for up to 46 people, our newly re-floored yoga shala, multiple lounge and dining areas, pool, ceremonial temple, and lush jungle gardens.

Astounding conscious cooking with all meals served family-style nourish body and soul alike. Our pen-air dining hall is bathed in the enchanting and soothing sounds of our river and rainforest gardens.
Holistic Extra Curricular Activities

Private Rainforest Excursions
Excursions available into the rainforest on foot (to multiple swimming holes or to our 100-foot waterfall), on horseback, or by car to the nearby beaches at Manuel Antonio or Dominical.
A Riverfront Retreat Under the Rainforest Canopy
Posada Natura, on the central pacific coast of Costa Rica, is a 45-minute drive from the popular beach towns of Manuel Antonio and Dominical.
An energetic paridise where human healing meets rainforest conservation, Posada rests on the banks of the mighty Rio Naranjo, one of cleanest rivers left on earth, where it stands sentinel to and stewards 7,500 acres of protected, primary rainforest reserve.
A Natural Sanctuary
Expansive gathering spaces, ceremonial temple, multiple practice areas, lounges and dining hall, and a freshwater pool are woven into lush tropical gardens along the river.
Built with stone, wood, and bamboo from our land, our accomodations achieve the perfect balance between luxury and rustic, harmonizing with our land and creating a deeper experience of immersion into nature.
Local, organic farm to table cuisine! Three nutritious, wholesome meals served family-style each day. Seasonal fruits, herbs and roots from our garden, handmade tortillas, fresh home-made coconut milk, eggs from our chickens, cheese from our goats.
The grounds at our retreat center are a colorful garden of ancient trees, medicinal plants, fruit trees, flowers and animals of Costa Rica. Meandering pathways through the garden create a sense of expansiveness while remaining close to the common spaces. Various gathering sites are dispersed throughout that promote peaceful experiences connected with nature. The song of the forest is a chorus of wildlife that creates an experience of astounding mental clarity and calm presence at our healing center. Our grounds are truly a tangible discovery of the pulsing magic of life.
Nature immersions, and excursions through our conservation site on horseback, river rafting, or treks on foot for each event. Each experience at Posada Natura is woven into our 7,500-acre rainforest conservation lands. The state of being connected with nature quiets the mind and significantly improves our physical and mental health. All humans are hardwired with an innate affinity for nature, because nature is the source our very existence.
If desired, we will organize bodywork, meditation, yoga, ritual & spiritual practices.

Where is Posada Natura located?We are located in a small town called Londres, 20 minutes from Quepos/Manuel Antonio Beach. This is 3 hours by ground from San Jose or 20 minutes by air. Find us on Google Maps
What airport do I fly into?Juan Santamaría International Airport (SJO)
How do I get from the airport to Posada Natura?You can get to Posada Natura by ground or by air. Taxi: A taxi will cost $150. If you like, we can arrange for one of our trusted Taxi drivers to pick you up. The drive will take anywhere from 2.5-4 hours depending on traffic. Rental Car: If you choose to rent a car, we recommend that you do it online ahead of time. Also it’s a good idea to call your credit card company and have them send you a copy of the Damage & Collision waiver. This will wave the extra insurance fee that car rental companies charge in Costa Rica. Making your reservation online in advance will also save you a large expense. There is plenty of space for you to park on our property. Travel by Air: From San Jose International Airport you can fly to Quepos on Sansa Airlines. These flights usually cost $60-$100. You will need to coordinate your main international flight separately from the Sansa flight through their website. Sansa only flies a few times per day so make sure to coordinate your international and local flight accordingly to ensure that they will work together. Find us on Google Maps
Should I be concerned about traveling to Costa Rica?Costa Rica is one of the safest Central American countries. The people are friendly, talkative, and live by the motto “pura vida”. However, as you would at home, keep your valuables close, and lock your car.
Should I be concerned about drinking the water?Our water is supplied by the springs from our own rainforest conservation lands, which is one of the cleanest watersheds left on earth. Our water is alive, vibrant, and healing.
What should I bring with me to Posada Natura?Upon registering for your retreat we will e-mail you a registration packet that includes a packing list.
Is internet access available? Can I use my cellphone and computer?Yes. We have high speed wifi in our common areas. Our sleeping areas do not have internet access. We ask our guests to use electronics for important matters only. Part of the healing energy we encourage is to reconnect to nature, quiet the mind, and listen to the heart. We ask you please keep use of electronics to a minimum to support the temple energy of our sanctuary, and to only use electronics in areas designated for their use.
Is Posada Natura family friendly?Yes. We are a family owned business. Posada Natura has always been a place where children have enjoyed the beauty of the natural world. We welcome children and families to enjoy this space with us, and are honored to be a place where families can come into deeper connection to one another and the earth.
How is Posada Natura involved in Rainforest Conservation? What is Eco Era?In 1991, our founders bought 1,000 acres of primary rainforest in the Cerro Nara Mountains of Costa Rica to protect it against deforestation and species extinction. This project became a 501(c) (3) called Eco Era. Since that time we have expanded our efforts to protect the full 7,500 acres of Cerro Nara and engage in ongoing reforestation efforts and species protection. Our retreats center is managed by Eco Era and all of our proceeds return to Eco Era so that we can continue to protect the rainforest. You can learn more about Eco Era here.
How can I support Posada Natura's efforts in Rainforest Conservation?We gratefully accept and appreciate donations to support our rainforest conservation efforts. If you are interested in making a tax-deductible donation to Eco Era, you can do so here.
