Costa Rica English, Spanish

I love what I do and I cherish where I live. After working in NYC for 10 years as an entrepreneur/Lifestyle Design Guru, I decided that I wanted a different pace of life. My heart told me Costa Rica was the place to be, and without really planning, I decided to move here. I gave up the hustle and bustle, crowded trains, and unending city noise. I found myself here in the southern zone of Costa Rica – with the ocean singing my soul’s song, the laid-back beach lifestyle, and the jungle soundtrack as music to my ears. The Tico (Costa Rican) culture is so welcoming, and they truly live one moment at a time. I love walking down the street here, and everyone greets each other with “Pura Vida!” This phrase, which literally translates to Pure Life, is so much more than two words. It is the Costa Rican way of life. It means hello, goodbye, how are you, I’m great! It’s the answer to almost any question – Pura Vida! It is my joy to show you what Pura Vida means, from local culture, and food, to the beauty of these vibrant lands. I’ve been working in and managing retreat centers in this area for over 6 years now, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. The authentic connections and beautiful travelers that I get the pleasure of sharing this experience with are priceless. Whether you desire a private chef to serve you lush local cuisine, luxury pampering through body treatments, exotic adventures, private yoga/dance lessons, a gorgeous space to explore personal development, or experiencing the culture via a dedicated driver (or car rental) – I delight in helping you create a stellar experience for your group to discover the magic of Costa Rica. I have a unique understanding of both sides of the services needed for a retreat center. As a visionary creator and teacher at international festivals, I also host my own retreats around the world. So I know that the details matter. You’ll have the inside knowledge and tips, and I’m here to assist you and spark your imagination every step of the way. I look forward to creating a one of a kind journey with you and for your guests!
