Join us in the magical cloud forest of Costa Rica November 3-9, 2011 for the Imago Couples Workshop! We have found a location that exceeded our own expectations. The Villa Blanca Cloud Forest Hotel & Nature Reserve is nestled at 3700 feet in the vivid green mountains of central Costa Rica. Above verdant slopes covered with coffee plantations, Villa Blanca liies within the borders of a private biological sanctuary that protects one of the planet’s most rare and precious jungle habitats– the cloud forest. This life spring of orchids, butterflies, rare birds and animals is less than 2 hours by private bus from San Jose’s International Airport. It is a mesmerizing world of mist, mountains and the magic of nature. It's the perfect introduction to Costa Rica's national creed: Pura Vida! Pure life! And the perfect location for a couples workshop!
Andrea has been visiting Costa Rica for much of the last decade and introduced its magic to Bob in 2007. Together, this past November, the two of us drove up into the mountains and walked the grounds of Villa Blanca, saw the casitas where we and our clients would stay and were swept up by its beauty. The facilities are rustic yet world class, including a second story meeting room with a 360 degree view of the surrounding jungled mountains and a restaurant whose cuisine was unexpectedly delectable.
What better place to combine a romantic getaway with a workshop that will provide you with practical tools to help you keep your intimacy growing for the rest of your lives?!!
We have set this up so that you can spend six nights at Villa Blanca and then personally build additional days onto your trip at your discretion. We will put you in contact with the best in-country travel agency for that purpose.
The Villa Blanca area offers zip-lining, horse-back riding, nature walks in the jungle, visits to coffee plantations and more. In all likelihood, you'll want to visit the world-famous Pacific Coast of the Guanacaste region where you can see clouds of birds lifting off from the islands, crocodiles basking in the sun, monkeys and iguanas lounging in the trees. You may want to go snorkeling or scuba diving, sport fishing or just spend your time relaxing on the magnificent beaches.
The prices that follow include: transportation from the San Jose airport and return to San Jose on the 9th, a charming private casita with fireplace, queen bed, private bathroom and shower and private terrace; all meals from the moment you arrive to the moment you depart Villa Blanca (alcohol beverages excepted), your workshop fee and all workshop materials. You will be able to choose from three different styles of casitas but availability is purely first-come-first-serve!
Airfare to and from San Jose and any other travel not specifically mentioned here will be up to you, though we can certainly offer guidance to the better agencies.
