Wellness. Vacation. Paradise.

JOIN ONE OF PRAVASSA’S SIGNATURE SMALL GROUP TOURS FOR AN 8-DAY WELLNESS VACATION THROUGH Costa Rica.

Enjoy a winter break of wellness in tropical paradise. Hosted by master yoga instructors Bita Jenkins and Moses Brown, alongside Pravassa founder, Linden Schaffer, the glorious scenery and terrain of Costa Rica provide the setting for you to be forever #changedbytravel.


Welcome to COSTA RICA

Home to the phrase “Pura Vida” (pure life), Costa Rica is an intrepid traveler’s dream destination. Known for its unlimited vacation activities such as outdoor adventures, world-class surfing, and farm-to-table dining, it also has a government-led sustainability strategy, resulting in the country getting 98% of its energy from renewable sources. Inspiring you with its vibrancy, exciting you with its adventure and thrilling you with its rich biodiversity, you’ll soon adopt Costa Rica, and its Pura Vida, as a lifestyle of your own.

This 7-night/8-day wellness vacation will be guided by yoga masters Bita Jenkins and Moses Brown, along with Pravassa founder Linden Schaffer. Together, we will journey back into a state of balance, with ample space for mindfulness, yoga, and time spent in nature. You will have the opportunity to slow down, observe your surroundings, and reflect on the way you move and exist within them. This vacation is intended to be truly restorative, awakening your innate and boundless capacity to connect with the world around you, calming your everyday experiences long after you return home. Join us for a #changedbytravel journey through Costa Rica.

Pravassa has been there and knows what’s worth doing in the limited time one has on a trip. Not the usual tours but something immersive, innovative and invites you into the culture.”

PARTIAL ITINERARY*

Day 1 | Feb 8th
Upon landing, you’ll be greeted with a Pura Vida smile at San Jose airport and with a Pravassa exclusive wellness welcome drink. From here, your luggage will be collected and you'll be escorted to your private group transfer to the hotel (about 1.5 hours away). Check in and walk the property to ground yourself in its natural beauty before meeting your wellness guides in the yoga studio for an opening ritual and welcome. Sit together for our first curated wellness dinner in Costa Rica.

Day 2 | Feb 9th
Wake to a proper cup of Tico coffee before heading to the yoga studio for your first (1.5 hour) class. Following a hearty breakfast, meet your local guide for a tour of the property. Built by the former Costa Rican president, today the hotel is a working farm and research center. Your tour will end in the onsite church where you'll meet a local expert who will help you to understand the Costa Rica of today and why the country is so focused on sustainability. Then sit for a bountiful lunch prepared from the farm's local resources. Enjoy the afternoon at leisure: book a spa treatment, read a book, or hike the local trails before we meet again for a sunset yoga session. Enjoy dinner at your leisure and if you’re feeling adventurous, book a night walk and meet a naturalist for a guided jungle tour where the animals of Costa Rica come out to play.
