Join us in celebrating nature as we make our retreat home within an eco-community set in the lush tropical rainforest of Costa Rica.

Immerse yourself in a genuine off-the-grid experience of living in true harmony with Mother Nature, exploring a life of simplicity and sustainability. Lying across 400 acres of biodiverse rainforest and gardens, Rancho Margo invites you to relax and ground yourself within this natural paradise.

Enjoy your stay surrounded by exotic flowers, ancient trees, medicinal and edible plants, and the amazing wildlife that inhabits this space.

This retreat is an incredible opportunity to be inspired by what is possible when a community chooses sustainability and harmony as its prime intention. Experience this first-hand through living on the property, witnessing and partaking in everyday community life.

This beautiful location will enhance your daily yoga practice, facilitating a deeper experience of your own inner harmony. Each day you can enjoy the options of meditation, energising morning vinyasa flow, relaxing afternoon yin practice (including guided myofascial release), and yoga nidra – a blissful guided deep relaxation.

Choose from a range of group activities to help you explore this beautiful natural setting. Or enjoy ample personal time to swim, sunbathe, read, relax with a spa treatment or walk the extensive rainforest trails and discover waterfalls that inspire meditation and reflection.
