Fitness Retreat to Costa Rica – February 2018

Story by Meredith Nelson / October 11, 2017

Make a note in your calendar and begin checking for flights.  We’re returning to La Carolina Lodge February 17 – 23, 2018!


Overlooking a fresh water river and lush tropical forests there is something for everyone at La Carolina Lodge, where the family-friendly environment offers a unique “Pure Costa Rica” experience.  There is something for everyone at La Carolina Lodge! Enjoy a refreshing swim in the crystal clear river, relax in the one-of-a-kind wood-fired hot tub, sun on the deck, walk through our lush tropical forest, bird watch while sitting in comfort on the veranda, horse ride through our meadows, milk cows, and much more.  Nestled on the eastern slopes of Volcano Tenorio, the home of the famous Rio Celeste Waterfall, in Northwestern Costa Rica, the 170-acre ranch and farm welcomes you to “A Place Like No Other”. On-site Costa Rican wildlife includes a vast array of birds, including toucans, parrots, hummingbirds, Montezuma Oropendola and many more. Their daily visits to our feeders are sure to delight both the advanced and novice bird watchers.  Tropical mammals include monkeys, sloths, anteaters, kinkajous and coitis. The colourful frogs and butterflies, including the giant Morpho, are a sight to behold. A stroll around our property will bring you into contact with many bromeliads, wild orchids and other flora.


Of course, your PrimeTime itinerary may include additional activities such as hiking, mountain biking, ziplining, horseback riding, eating amazing food right from the farm, whitewater rafting, and maybe even a little R&R.  Daily workouts and yoga are programmed to bring you the ultimate fitness retreat!
