Ayahausca Costa Rica Retreat
NEW LIFE AYAHAUSCA
Liberia Airport Pickup - Shuttle will arrive at 2PM on the start day of the retreat to collect all participants.
If you're able to find a flight that arrives before 12PM, you can just wait at the airport for the driver.
Many guests choose to arrive 1 - 2 days before the retreat and stay near the airport nearby to meet the shuttle on the start day of the retreat.
The driver will pick up directly from the LIR airport to make the transition easy and stress-free.
We do not pick up from SJO, the drive from SJO is about 5 hours and you will need to arrange your own transporation to Guanacaste or take a flight on the local ariline SANSA to arrive at Liberia.
The New Life Ayahuasca Costa Rica facility is situated off a secluded dirt road about 90 minutes outside of LIR (Liberia International Airport).
Once you arrive we will get you settled in and make you feel at home.
Liberia Airport Drop off - Shuttle will arrive at the retreat at 9:30AM on day retreat ends for an arrival at LIR around 11AM.
Checkout time is 10AM
If you are planning to fly out the day the retreat ends, look for a flight after 3pm. Please remember that you need to arrive at the airport approximately 4 hours before your departure time to accommodate covid testing.
We highly recommend staying in Costa Rica for a few days after the retreat to allow yourself some additional processing time.
The country is beautiful and having some extra time to decompress without the stress of jumping back into a daily routine can help you feel more prepared for integrating back home.
There are a number of beautiful beaches nearby. Please ask us for recommendations.
Any passenger returning to the United States must obtain a negative COVID test within 1 day of the flight (antigen or PCR) even if you have been fully vaccinated.
Liberia airport is offering COVID testing. If you plan to get tested at LIR, it is recommended that you arrive 4 hours prior to your scheduled flight to accommodate the testing time. You must make an appointment for the test here: https://covid.morphotr.com/
If you are staying in Costa Rica for any number of days after the retreat, you can get an antigen test with same-day results at most labs throughout the country or at Liberia and SJO airports. You can visit the US embassy website for more info.
Why Costa Rica?
As if we need to ask.
Costa Rica is the perfect place for an ayahuasca retreat. The nature, beauty and laid back atmosphere contribute to the therapeutic value of our ayahuasca retreats. Costa Rica has an easy-going culture with the country motto “Pura Vida” which translates to “Pure Life.” The weather is perfect year-round, with average temperatures around 80 degrees.
Costa Rica has two seasons
- GREEN SEASON (June - November) is also known as the rainy season. It's wonderful this time of year because everything is so green and in bloom! The mornings start out sunny and the rain comes in throughout the day. There are more bugs this time of year.
- DRY SEASON (December - May) is great because it doesn’t rain at all for almost 6 months, meaning sunshine all day long, clear skies and beautiful sunsets. The downside is most of the vegetation in the area dies and things get covered in dust.
Please keep these factors in mind when booking your retreat but either way, Costa Rica is beautiful and comfortable year round!
