The closest airport to our location is the Juan Santamaría International Airport (SJO). We provide complimentary airport transfer from SJO for flights arriving between 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. on Arrival Day. Pick-up instructions are emailed to guests in the days leading up to their arrival. We ask that all guest arrive by 3:00 p.m. so not to miss the Welcome Orientation and workshop that follows.
Unfortunately, due to the amount of guests we need to transport, we are no longer able to provide transportation from hotels. We ask all guests interested in our complimentary transportation to meet our drivers at the airport at the scheduled pick-up times.
Guests are welcome to arrive at 3:00 p.m. to the retreat center. We ask guests to arrive by 3:00 p.m. to avoid missing the Welcome Orientation and the afternoon group gathering with Carlos.
Arrival day is for guests to settle into their rooms and get to know the staff and other guests who they will be connecting with for the week. A welcome orientation is provided to the group followed by a group gathering in the afternoon with Carlos. An evening meal is also provided before guests settle in for the evening.
The retreat ends at approximately 09:00 a.m. The group is provided a breakfast at 8:00 a.m. and the airport transfer for guests is at approximately 9:00 a.m. If you need a ride to the airport prior to 9:00 a.m., we can arrange a private taxi for you. The driver charges 20,000 Colones (or $35). You will want to calculate leaving our property 3-3.5 hours before your flight. Therefore, most guests generally look for a departure flight that leaves in the early afternoon. For guests staying in Costa Rica after the retreat, our staff is happy to assist with any transportation or logistics information you need. We also have trusted drivers that are happy to take you to wherever you like at reasonable Uber rates.
