Our Costa Rica training is located at Chilamate Rainforest Eco Retreat in the Sarapiqui Region, one of the most biodiversity-rich places in all of Costa Rica, in the heart of the San Juan la Selva Section of the Mesoamerican Biological Corridor.
Native Sarapiqueño Davis Azofeifa and Irish-Canadian Meghan Casey are the founders of Chilamate Rainforest Eco Retreat. The Retreat was born out of the couples dream to work together on a project that would benefit the local community and also the critical section of the Mesoamerican Biological Corridor where Davis and his family have traditionally lived. The property consists of 55 acres of Sarapiqui Riverfront and lowland tropical rain forest.
According to National Geographic’s article “The World’s Happiest Places” from November 2017, Costa Rica is ranked one of the three happiest countries in the world. Looking at its natural beauty and its vibrant culture, this really comes at no surprise. Come and train to be a Forest Therapy Guide amongst the majestic trees, animals and birds of this special place.
