COSTA RICA WOMEN'S WELLNESS RETREAT
A KEMP TRAVEL ESCORTED ADVENTURE
After this pandemic and the toll this past year has taken, we think it will be safe to say we’ll all need a vacation and a little “me time” when it’s all over! That’s why we have organized this amazing 8 day women’s only wellness retreat to Costa Rica hosted by Kemp Travel. Simply say “Costa Rica” and vivid images of paradise instantly flood the imagination. This eight-day tour makes those dreams a reality while letting you connect with the country’s charming people.
Your spirits will be lifted with a visit to Mi Cafecito Community Coffee Plantation and a G for Good project supporting 200 local farmers, before carrying on to the outdoor utopia that is La Fortuna. There, you’ll be treated to a world of wellness, with yoga sessions overlooking the Arenal Volcano, hiking, free time for meditation, and a rejuvenating trip to thermal hot springs. Continue on to remote Rincón de la Vieja for more yoga and a therapeutic mud bath before a final stop in Playa Carrillo — home to a beach with no buildings, hotels, and restaurants that will give your mind a sense of clarity you may have previously thought impossible.
We’ll swim in waterfalls, take a surfing lesson and have free time in some of the most beautiful locations on earth! This small group journey will be limited to 15 women to keep things intimate and relaxed so don’t miss out!

OUR WEEK AT A GLANCE
Day 1 | San José
Today we’ll begin our journey to the breathtakingly beautiful Costa Rica. Upon arrival in San José we will catch our included transfer to the hotel and get settled. This evening, meet the CEO for a welcome meeting and enjoy an included dinner to get to know our fellow travellers. Afterwards get some rest and take this opportunity to set your intention for the trip ahead.
Day 2 | San José/La Fortuna (B, L)
Drive to Sarapiquí to visit the G Adventures-supported Mi Cafecito Community Coffee Plantation. Here we’ll learn about harvesting, roasting and making coffee as well as the impact this project has had on the community before sampling a fresh cup and other products! Continue on to La Fortuna, an outdoor paradise and the adventure capital of Costa Rica. Join the group for the first included yoga session on the hotel grounds overlooking Arenal Volcano.
Day 3 | La Fortuna (B,D)
Visit nearby Lake Arenal this morning for a stand-up paddleboard yoga class. Enjoy free time in the afternoon to take part in optional activities around La Fortuna – opt to go canyoning, hiking, or use the time to just relax. In the evening, visit nearby hot springs for a relaxing soak in the thermal waters. Rejuvenate your muscles, and stimulate all your senses in nature’s thermal spa. Breathe in the pure rainforest air and marvel at the mystic surroundings of these outdoor pools of paradise.
Day 4 | La Fortuna/Rincón de la Vieja Volcano National Park (B,D)
Travel to the Guanacaste province and head to Rincón de la Vieja National Park. Join an afternoon yoga session on the way to the eco-lodge before free time to relax or explore the great outdoors. Rincón de la Vieja is the epitome of Costa Rica: lush jungle, extensive flora and fauna, bubbling mud pools next to volcanic thermal waters, and an escape from everyday life.
Day 5 | Rincón de la Vieja Volcano National Park (B, L, D)
Enjoy a day of exploring Rincón de la Vieja National Park. Start by taking a short hike to one of the volcanic mud pools in the area. After a rejuvenating exfoliation with the volcanic mud, rinse off at nearby thermal pools. This afternoon is free to explore the park, or spend time enjoying the lodge. Opt for a hike, ziplining, or tubing along the Rio Negro in your free time.
Day 6 | Rincón de la Vieja Volcano National Park/Playa Carrillo (B)
Travel to Playa Carrillo on the Nicoya Peninsula, a laidback beach town on the Pacific Coast. Take part in a sunset yoga class overlooking the picture perfect crescent bay of Playa Carrillo. Playa Carrillo is less busy than other beaches along the coast, perfect for rest and relaxation as there are few distractions and minimal noise. The beach itself has no buildings, hotels or restaurants, and is considered one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica.
Day 7 | Playa Carrillo (B,D)
Head to the beach to learn how to hang 10 at an included surf lesson. Take the rest of the day to do beach activities, meditation, or reflect on the journey of the past week. In the evening, take part in a sunset yoga class and enjoy the ocean breeze. We will also have one final included dinner as a group to reflect and share stories from our week together!
Day 8 | Playa Carrillo/San José (B)
Bid farewell to the coast and travel back to the airport in San José where we will board our flight home!
