Location: Imiloa Institute, Costa Rica

Airport to Fly Into: You will fly into Juan Santamaría International Airport (SJO) in San Jose, Costa Rica. You will want to fly in by 7am on December 7th, as we will board a private jet around 9 am on December 7th. If that requires you to fly in the night before, we will provide some options near the SJO airport to make it easy for you to get to the airport on December 7th. Make sure to book your flight back home after 1pm on December 12th.

Shuttle/ Ground Transportation Recommendations: We will have a private jet and transportation taking us from SJO to the Imiloa Institute. If you would prefer to take ground transportation from the SJO airport, you may do so at your own expense (the Imiloa Institute is about 3 1/2 hours away and costs approximately $285 each way by taxi (feel free to reach out to us at for more information). Rental cars are not able to be parked at the retreat property.
