Ayahausca Costa Rica Retreat
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 arrival at LIR 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.
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!
