Travel Off the Beaten Path

You’ve always done things a little differently, had a unique point of view, taken the road less traveled and at times even blazed a new trail.  You live for the journey as much as the destination and when you travel, it fuels your soul! Your adventures are inspired by purpose, culture and connectivity. For friends like you we say come to Samasati, a destination retreat center in Costa Rica, featuring activities curated just for you. Our sanctuary rests within a protected primary rainforest. We are custodians with nature; immersed in her wild beauty. This gem of a destination is not for everyone; there are no tv’s in the rooms, no vending machines, no wake up calls … only howler monkeys who vivaciously declare the sun’s arrival, and limited wifi but ultimate connection.

Samasati does not sit on the main strip, nor is it near any city; it’s perched 1400 feet high above sea level overlooking the Caribbean Sea and requires a 4X4 vehicle for entry.  We are literally off the beaten path- a reflection for those who dare to inspire themselves.  The reward is immeasurable for those seekers. From San Jose’s international airport it’s sufficiently four hours by car or 75 minutes by plane and road to arrive worlds away from crowds of tourists, resort hotels and the static of a fast paced life.

Arrive at Samasati and everything drops away, leaving only pristine nature and the present moment.  Book your stay and live within one of the most bio-diverse ecosystems on Earth without hiring a mule, sherpa or having to machete your way through the jungle.

Below our hotel and retreat center lies more to discover, the lively beach town of Puerto Viejo. This culturally rich Afro Euro Caribbean outpost with it’s laid back vibes, stunning beaches and unspoiled environment attracts an international crowd of nature lovers, foodies, yogis, surfers, artists, teachers, entrepreneurs and adventure travelers.

Alexander Graham Bell once said, “Leave the beaten track behind occasionally and dive into the woods. Every time you do, you will be certain to find something you have never seen before.” And with that we invite you to come visit and build your practice, invest in your education, join like-minded community, celebrate life, reinvent yourself, be supported, be inspired and live your dream.
