Samasati Retreat

Hone Creek, Costa Rica

Text©Beatrice Blake-New Key to Costa Rica

A private 250-acre rainforest reserve in the hills between Cahuita and Puerto Viejo. You can swing in a hammock on the porch and gaze out over acres of forest to the blue Caribbean. Rooms in the guesthouse (shared bath; $90-$100/person, including meals) do not have the views, but are cozy. Everyone shares the view and the congenial atmosphere at the open-air restaurant where delicious vegetarian meals are served buffet-style. An energetic movement meditation to music gets your energy flowing in the morning, and yoga classes, bodywork and hot tub will soothe you after a day on the nature trails. They also three rent three private and unique houses by the month, all with jungle and sea views.

Samasati is located 10 kilometers south of Cahuita, then 800 meters inland on a gravel road, then uphill about ten minutes (four-wheel drive needed—they will meet you below if you don’t have a car). Take the Sixaola bus from the Caribe station at the north end of Calle Central in San José (2257-8129) and ask to be let off at the Samasati sign in Hone Creek.
