I have had the pleasure of hosting three Pilates & meditation retreats at La Carolina Lodge and could not think of a better place to bring my guests, who range in age from 25-70. From the planning stages through to completion, Bill & Karien are so helpful and accommodating, helping to ensure that all of our needs are more than met. Each year my guests are awed by the stunning natural setting, traditional Costa Rican food, and calm simplicity of the lodge. The lush, beautifully maintained property, which includes a refreshing river, a wood-fired hot tub, a large river-side yoga platform, open pastures and perfect walking trails, supports the deep transformation that my guests are looking for on retreat. They are able to return home with a renewed sense of health and purpose in their lives, and I am ever grateful to La Caroline Lodge for helping to create such a magical experience.
