Costa Rica offers an ideal location for Ayahuasca retreats due to its natural beauty and relaxed atmosphere. The's culture is welcoming with "Pura Vida" being the country's motto, which translates to "Pure Life." The weather is consistently warm, with average temperatures around 85 degrees. Please note that Costa Rica has two seasons: the winter green season (May-November) and the summer dry season (December-April). Each season has its own unique characteristics and appeal, so please plan your trip according to your preference, but remember Costa Rica is beautiful and comfortable year round!


GREEN SEASON (May - November) Also known as the rainy season or 'low season' because of the lack of tourism, this time of year is lush and vibrant! Everything is super alive and we get the deepest greens you've ever seen. The mornings usually start sunny and the rain comes in throughout the day. You're typically able to find cheaper prices on flights, hotels and excursions. The downside is there are a lot more bugs this time of year and sometimes the rain can interfere with planned activities.

DRY SEASON (December - April) High season is peak time for tourism. It's wonderful because it doesn’t rain at all so we get clear skies, lots of sunshine and beautiful sunsets. The downside is that it's more expensive this time of year, it can be very hot, and most of the vegetation in the area dies.


We understand that travelling internationally is stressful, so we've done everything we can to make your journey to our facility as seamless as possible. We provide transportation to and from Liberia International Airport and can help arrange transportation to anywhere else your adventure might take to you to next. 


LIR Airport Pickup - The shuttle will arrive at 1 PM on the start day of the retreat to collect all participants.​

If you're able to find a flight that arrives before 12 PM, 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 to meet the shuttle on the start day of the retreat.

The driver will pick up directly from LIR airport to make the transition easy and stress-free.

We do not pick up from local hotels, you will need to meet back at the airport for the shuttle service or arrange your own transportation.


The New Life Ayahuasca Costa Rica facility is located about 1.5 hours from LIR near Playa Junquillal.


Once you arrive we will get you settled in and make you feel at home.


Airport Drop off - Shuttle will arrive at the retreat at 12PM on the day retreat ends for a drop off at at Liberia International Airport around 2:00 PM.

If you are planning to fly out the day the retreat ends, look for a flight after 4:00 pm. Please remember that you need to arrive at the airport approximately 2 hours before your departure time for an international flight.

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 several beautiful beaches nearby.​ We will provide suggestions at the tie of booking.
