Ayahuasca Journey and Yoga Holiday in Cabuya, Costa Rica

Explore plant medicine in a safe space with experienced professionals

We invite you to embark on a personal journey of healing & integration in the jungle of Costa Rica.
You’ll find yourself immersed in a community of supportive individuals that are healing & growing alongside you. Feel completely safe & contained as you explore the depths of your mind, body & soul with the guidance of our hosts. Do all of this in nature, surrounded by wild animals & rescue animals at the center where we will stay in the jungle. Rise to the sounds of the ocean waves and howling monkeys, start every morning with meditation & positive vibes, connect to nature by playing in the ocean, indulge in organic, local cuisine, learn what it means to build community, integrate your experience with a licensed psychotherapist, & give yourself space and time to HEAL.


With so many plant medicine retreats out there, why join ours?

EXPERIENCE & SUPPORT. You will work closely with our support team, which has over 35 years combined experience with plant medicine, including TWO world-class musician/ceremony facilitators, a licensed psychotherapist, and a vegan chef.

SAFETY & INTIMACY. Our ceremonies are SMALL & INTIMATE! Safety & security is our top priority, as with as creating a safe container within which our guests can go on their journeys. We never have more than 12 guests max per event (versus other centers in Costa Rica that have over 80 people per ceremony!).

INTEGRATION WITH A PROFESSIONAL. Integration is of utmost importance to us! The work truly begins once you go home. The worst-case scenario is for our guests to go home feeling lost or confused about what to do next or where to go, so we incorporate strategies to ensure you return home with the tools you need to implement the changes you want to make in your life while doing so confidently & peacefully. You’ll enjoy group and one-on-one integration sessions with a licensed psychotherapist after each ceremony.

PLUS you have the option of continuing your work on-line after the retreat ends with a therapist who understands your path and experience - at a heavily discounted rate.

CEREMONY MUSIC
Music is integral to any ceremony experience. Our ceremony facilitators are well-known ceremony musicians and leaders who’s music is inspired by the medicine and are song-keepers for the medicine. The music acts as a facilitator to the medicine work and is the perfect complement.

WASTE-FREE, ORGANIC, PLANT-BASED
All of our events are 100% waste-free & eco-conscious. We make sure not to use single-use plastics. We use only biodegradable cleaning products. 100% of the produce used is local, organic & plant-based. We personally recycle anything that remains after the event ends.

For example, we don’t buy purge buckets. We walk around and find discarded water jugs that would otherwise end up in the ocean and we cut the top off (we recycle those bits), sanitize the rest and use them for the retreat. We sanitize and re-use them until they’re not useable and then we recycle those! This is the type of care we put into not creating waste during our events.

SUPPORT WILD ANIMALS
You will stay at a resort that is located on a wild animal rescue center, so your money goes towards benefitting animals in need and you get to be surrounded by the energy of beautiful wild animals!

HEAL IN PARADISE
The center is located right outside of the lush Cabo Blanco Natural Reserve where wild animals are abundant. You’ll enjoy outstanding ocean views from the infinity pool outside of the deluxe rooms.

If being part of a supportive, intimate community while you undergo your personal journey in a tropical paradise sounds appealing to you, then this retreat if for you.
It's time to leave the past behind…
And instead, live your best life…
As you spend a week healing in paradise
alongside a group of caring individuals.

    Wild Sun Retreat Center and Animal Rescue - Cabuya, Costa Rica
    Imagine taking a small plane that lands on a landing strip that meets the ocean. Your taxi awaits you & takes you down the peninsula to the rustic road that runs through Cabuya, a sleepy coastal farm town on the Nicoyan peninsula. Your driver turns up a road and you begin to ascend into the jungle, higher and higher.

    Soon you arrive to Wild Sun Jungle Resort, nestled in the foothills of the Cabo Blanco National Park in Costa Rica. You enter, and the first thing you notice is that you're surrounded by lush green jungle, breathtaking ocean views, wild animals & gorgeous accommodations. The photos don’t do it justice, as many of our previous guests said!!

    You're taken to your bedroom and you set your stuff down to relax. Ahhh... you've finally arrived. Plop down on the luscious bed, kick off your shoes, take a shower and relax with a tropical fruit smoothie before meeting the group.

    Throughout the week, you'll awaken with the howler monkeys as you enjoy the comfort of luxury within the peace and quiet of the wild and enchanting Costa Rican jungle. Savor the jungle views during breakfast or from the stunning pool. Look out to the horizon and let your worries melt away as the waves of the ocean roll into the shore. Spend the afternoon bathing in the sun and dipping in and out of the beautiful pool. It's time for dinner, enjoy gourmet food prepared by our private chef poolside and dine to the sounds of nature and the crashing waves in the distance.

    Wild Sun is also a rescue center, so we’ll tour the center and all profits to the center go towards the animals and projects!

    I'm from California but now I live in the jungle of Costa Rica. I first came to Santa Teresa in 2012 and knew immediately I was "home". It was immediately where I wanted to live, and now I've been living here for 5 years. I'll tell you the whole story when you get here! I'm a licensed marriage & family therapist (in California - LMFT# 82229) and a yoga teacher, so a perk of this retreat is that you get to work with me as you experience deep personal transformation on this soul-satisfying week-long journey

    I first came to Mal Pais, Costa Rica in 2006 from the south coast of England. Lured here by the waves I soon fell in love with the lush jungle, beautiful beaches and array of organically grown, local, fresh foods that were available. I originally worked as a surf instructor while I ran a guest house with my uncle, but my hunger for good food and my passion for sharing it with others led me to cook for guests and to host many dinner parties. I went on to work with some of the best chefs in the area and cre

    Additional Things to do Review Like

    Tour of Wild Sun Rescue Center
    Where we stay is also a fully functioning and ethical wild animal rescue center. Animals are routinely released back into the wild as soon as they are able to be and only kept at the center if their release would endanger their life. You’ll learn about all of this and more on our tour of the rescue center. We got lucky last time and got to experience a release of a howler monkey into the wild!

    Taking selfies or touching the animals is not beneficial for their well-being so please don’t expect to interact with animals in this way! We will only view them from a safe distance and in ways that are approved and legal.

    Enjoy an ethical and informational tour of a wild animal rescue center.

    Explore Pristine Local Waterfalls
    As a group, we’ll take a trip to a local waterfall that is on private property and rarely gets visitors! We’ll enjoy lunch by the natural fresh water pools, rope jump and dive into the cool water, and heal from the waterfall’s power.

    Adventure to a local waterfall that tourists rarely get to see!

    Three Ceremonies with Music & Singing
    Music and singing are so closely linked to healing & community and we love to encourage our guests to play instruments and sing. We provide epic musical accompaniment throughout the whole event and offer opportunities and space to jam together as a group during free time. Our retreat guests often sing in ceremony even when they’ve never sat in ceremony before (they feel that supported and comfortable!). We’ll learn songs together. Come find your voice and be inspired with us.

    Our ceremony facilitators are well-known ceremony musicians who‘s music is inspired by the medicine and takes you on a unique ride. The music acts as a facilitator to the medicine work and is the perfect complement.

    We'll sit in three ceremonies as a group filled with music and singing and we’ll have instruments to play throughout the week.


    Daily Yoga Class, Meditation & Sound Healing
    This isn't a "yoga retreat", so we won't be doing anything too crazy! We’ll meet each day to enjoy the fresh air. We'll gently stretch our bodies to work out any kinks and then we'll practice various simple meditation techniques. You'll experience the benefits of being able to calm your mind and rest your heart, a skill you'll take into ceremony with you and that you’ll surely find useful back home. This all is part of the process of rejuvenation, exploration and fulfillment.

    Enjoy daily yoga classes, meditation and sound healing.


    Group & One-on-One Integration
    Integration is what brings the work together. We’ve found that our guests enjoy and benefit from our integration sessions as much as or even more than ceremonies themselves! We will gather as a group the day after each ceremony to process our experiences and to be of support to one another. You also have the option of meeting with Rima one-on-one throughout the week and continuing your work on-line with a therapist that understands your unique experience once you go back to your normal life.

    We include group integration sessions with a licensed psychotherapist, as well as pre-screening/technique/tips and optional post-integrations services. You have the option of talking one-on-one throughout the week with facilitators as needed.

    Know before you go Review Like

    Seasonal information
    Costa Rica has two seasons: dry (high) season & wet (low) season. The dry season is what is known as the summer season and is typically mid-November to end of April. The rest of the time is wet season.

    Weather information
    The weather is hot all day and evening, but not very humid. In dry season, it can be dusty and you want to consider bringing bandanas to cover your face and mouth if you go on an ATV ride. We don't expect much rain for this time of year.

    Responsible travel
    Please avoid bringing disposable plastics to the peninsula. Avoid removing shells or anything other items from the beach (unless you want to pick up any trash you may find, of course!).

    Electricity and outlets
    We use 110, same as the US.

    Visa stuff
    Not necessary from most countries, but be sure to check. Immigration will issue a 90-day standard tourist visa upon arrival to Costa Rica.

    What to bring
    No matter what, pack lightly. Most people make the mistake of bringing way too many things to Costa Rica. Don't go based on what the airline allows, as you won't need that much! Also, PLEASE NOTE THAT THE COMMUTER FLIGHT has weight limits are more stringent than a typical airline as it's a commuter plane, and if you're over the limit, you'll have to pay $1 per pound. It's not worth it.

    This area is simplicity at its best. We will provide a complete packing list once you confirm your booking.

    Consider bringing along copies of your important documents and storing them separately from the actual items, should they get lost or stolen. It's handy to have a copy of your passport, driver's license, credit cards, airline tickets, and any other reservations you may need to reference. In addition, consider leaving copies of these things at home with a loved one should you need them sent to you in an emergency.

    Vaccinations requirements
    None required from the US, but be sure to check with your country.

    How to get there Review Like

    How to get there (flights, airport transfers, buses, trains)
    You will fly into and out of San Jose Airport, Costa Rica, and from there, make your way to Cabuya by commuter flight. You fly into Tambor Airport TMU and from there, we arrange a taxi to the retreat center in Cabuya.

    If your flight out of San Jose leaves very early in the morning, it's best to book it for the next morning (the 16th) to enjoy the full benefit of the retreat, as you need to leave time to travel from Cabuya to San Jose and the flights don't start until about 7 am.

    If you leave the 15th, plan you flight to leave at least 2 pm or later. If it leaves before 2 pm, plan it for the 16th. You can make your way leisurely to San Jose and stay near the airport in comfortable, affordable and safe accommodation.
