Our Costa Rica location is located at Vida Mountain Resort and Spa, in the Alajuela Province near San Ramon. This location is one of our premium destinations to visit and attend our Forest Therapy Guide Training program.
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. Vida Mountain Retreat Center is a luxury spa sitting upon a mountain top with breathtaking views.
