Despite being a small country, Costa Rica has the most species of plants and animals per acre than anywhere else in the world. It has more protected land than any other country in the world with approximately 25% of the country being national park or other conservation areas such as wildlife reserves and refuges. Our retreats are held in Manuel Antonio, with a National Park that is recognized as one of the most bio-diverse parks in Costa Rica and listed in Forbes among the world’s 12 most beautiful national parks.
