Each meal is served based on the freshest ingredients that day. Every menu is customized for the guests.
 
Breakfasts are an array of fresh juices, fruits, farm-fresh egg dishes, grain-free muffins and bread, homemade granolas, chia puddings, and our organic coffee freshly roasted from our garden
and served French press style.

Lunch is always fresh from the garden, salads of every type of fresh vegetables, inventive salads, and inspired combinations of flavors.  This is the showcase of our beautiful farm each day – served buffet-or table service.  We always offer a protein option that is crafted of local fowl, fish, or beef.

Dinner is an artful three-course meal prepared with freshest ingredients beginning with a pureed garden soup to open the palate. The main dish varies each night and always offer vegetarian or vegan options. 

Desserts are the masterpiece finale to each evening.

EXCURSIONS

Vista los Sueños Adventure Park

Imagine what it’s like to hang from trees like monkeys.

Los Sueños is the premier adventure park of the Central Pacific of Costa Rica. Fill your day with fun and activities and experience an adventure getaway. On the road to Los Suenos, you will enjoy stunning views of the mountains, and a quick visit to the Tarcoles River, where you will have the opportunity to see and take pictures of crocodiles in their natural habitat; some of them measuring up to 19 feet long.

​At Vista Los Suenos Adventure Park, you will begin with one of the best Zipline Tours in Costa Rica, eat a typical Costa Rican lunch (or ask the Retreat to pack you a healthy picnic for optimal wellness) then choose between a fun horseback ride to the cascade falls or an ATV ride through the jungle, a very invigorating and full of action-adventure in the tropics, crossing rivers, muddy roads with beautiful viewpoints. The tour concierge will leave the hotel at 8:30 and will return at 5 pm in time for a beautiful sunset and dinner at The Retreat.

Beach Play Date and Surfing Adventure

Who doesn’t love a day at the beach?

Jaco Beach is a world-class surf destination and is one of the first beaches of the Central Pacific of Costa Rica to be awarded for its sustainable development and tourism practices. Our tour concierge will leave the hotel at 10 am for a short 40 min drive through Orotina where he will stop on the side of the road to quench your thirst with fresh Coconut Water from a local stand. The first stop is the famous “Bridge of the Crocodiles” in the Tárcoles River, where we’ll get out and see some of the largest man-eating reptiles.

 

Then we head towards Playa Hermosa beach where we will stop for lunch at Bowie’s Fresh Seafood Restaurant which sits right on the beautiful sand. After lunch we will go directly to Jaco for some beach time, relaxation or a surf lesson, you may walk around the artist community and do some souvenir shopping or maybe sip a drink and watch the sunset. You will return back to The  Retreat for dinner.
