Gemstone Climbing and Chakra Eco Lodge in Costa Rica are beyond excited to announce our first ever Costa Rica Climbing, Yoga and Hiking Adventure Retreat in the beautiful mountains and on the beaches of COSTA RICA!
Join us for a full week of "off the grid" challenging and life changing adventures! There will be a coffee tour, climbing workshop, waterfall hike, tree climbing, climbing newly bolted cliffs, rappelling, canyoning, slack lining, SUPing, beaching and a community service project. There is an option to extend your vacation through another travel agency with 90 days notice. There is something for everyone.
It takes place at our off the grid Eco Lodge in the mountains where you will connect deeper with yourself, the people around you and nature.
Take a step away from it all...Relax, unwind and disconnect as you practice yoga, relax in hammocks, and listen to the sounds of nature. Excite, challenge and push yourself as we hike to secluded waterfalls and mountain tops, surround ourselves with the wild, climb trees, climb secluded and newly established cliffs, and repel rocks and waterfalls.
It's time to take that leap and join us on an epic adventure! This retreat is open to everyone because there is something here for everyone to enjoy! No matter what your level or speed, there will be someone with you every step of the way. Join this incredibly supportive community for a trip of a life time!
Four days at our private Eco-lodge, Chakra Lodge, nestled between 2 national parks in the mountains of Costa Rica, Chirripo National Park and La Amistad International Park, which is shared with Panama.
You are sleeping in a treehouse of three walls with the fourth walls open to the jungle with more stars than you can even count above. Every day you will nourish your body with home cooked, local and healthy food, drink pure natural spring water.
Two days follow in the beautiful, relaxed beach town of Dominical in a beach front hotel where we will learn how to stand-up paddle and slack line!

- While in the mountains you are staying on our own private property, and an eco-lodge where we are trying to keep our carbon foot print as small as possible! Our lodge is essentially off the grid, no cell phones, no wifi, no electricity, be prepared to disconnect from every day life and connect with nature, it is a beautiful thing!
- The lodge was entirely built by hand. Over 80% of the land of Chakra has been donated back to reforestation and conservation.
- Our lodge will be fully set up and taken down by our staff. We work with incredible local people from San Jeronimo that cook and clean for us everyday (you just get to relax and have fun)
For anyone and everyone (adults only) who is looking to get away from the craziness of everyday life, relax deeply, recharge fully and challenge yourself to try new things in one of the most beautiful places we have ever been. Challenge yourself, step outside your comfort zone, experience personal growth and try new things.
If you want to disconnect from the outside world, get your feet dirty and reconnect with nature. If you want to connect with yourself and others on a deeper level. If you want to experience a truly unique and unforgettable experience at a private, eco mountain lodge that you won't experience in any other way. If you want to travel with a purpose, to give a true gift to yourself, to give time back to a impoverished community, and spend a week having very little impact on mother earth.
