My wife and I settled here in 2012 and subsequently had our daughter. We love our community and life here. We feel very inspired by the Tico families that have accepted and welcomed us. Our passion for helping others improve their health and vitality continues to fuel our dream of founding a tropical retreat/education center. We have traveled many parts of Costa Rica and understand the pace and the flexibility needed to truly unwind and enjoy the beauty of the land and the culture of Costa Rica. Pura vida is more than a nice greeting, it is the essence of tranquility and kind, humble service to all of humanity. Love yourself and fill your cup till you are spilling over, then share all that you can.
