Travel / Getting To & From the Retreat

Dr Sam Raw-habilitation Raw Food Costa Rica wellness retreat travelWe recommend highly “flying direct” into San Jose Int’l Airport (airport code: SJO) in Costa Rica if possible to avoid any potential travel delays or problems.

*Important- Please Read!

This wellness retreat starts on March 11th, so you will need to arrive in Costa Rica by March 10th. The wellness retreat shuttle will pick everyone up at Margarita’s Guest House (which is where we recommend you stay if possible) around 6:30am and bring you all to your first adventure. On the last day of this wellness retreat (which is March 18th), the wellness retreat shuttle will bring you back to the airport early that morning. To give yourself enough time, I would recommend booking return flights home at 1:00pm or later.

If NOT using our complimentary wellness retreat transportation that will be provided during the specific scheduled window of time we have arranged, YOU will be responsible (including expenses) for getting yourself to and from the wellness retreat location. Options include: taxis, shuttles, buses, or rental cars.
