refresh retreat

Costa Rica

Retreat: February 16-19, 2023
Retreat Price: $1795 p/p

This special trip is custom-designed by Legit Trips co-owner Kristen.  Kristen is also a life and business coach and this trip brings together her two passions once a year. 

This transformational destination retreat is 4 days of learning about and practicing self-care to live your best life, with tools to implement right away.

We’ll immerse ourselves in the magical healing powers of the Costa Rican jungle- drinking from natural medicinal springs, soaking in thermo mineral pools, and hiking through the rainforest to hidden waterfalls.

Fly in/out of Liberia (LIR) Costa Rica, all ground transportation provided.

This transformational retreat is part personal development, and part vacation.  Each guest will have two opportunities for one on one coaching sessions with Kristen on any topic of their choosing.  We’ll have group coaching sessions to learn about habit building, mindset, intentionality, and goal setting.  And of course we’ll enjoy what the property and surroundings have to offer from daily yoga to mud baths to mineral pools.

Then, if you’re able to stay, we’ll head to the beach to celebrate the work we’ve done together! There’s no itinerary at the beach, just some downtime to let all that deep work integrate before you head home. No classes, no itinerary, just enjoying some time unwinding together. 

Retreat: February 16-19, 2023

Beach Vacation Add-On: February 19-22, 2023

*Do Not book your flight without verifying arrival & departure times/airports with a Legit Trips team member.

There are two pick-up times upon arrival, and only 1 departure transfer on the last day, so you’ll want to coordinate (or you can take the shuttle from Tamarindo if you’d prefer to move on your own schedule).




All trips are priced as double occupancy. When available, solo supplements may be offered.  If you are traveling solo, it doesn’t mean you need to pay for a solo supplement, we’re happy to pair you with a roommate whenever possible.

After you pay your deposit, you may pay the balance of $1145 anytime up to 90 days prior to trip departure, or we can set up equal monthly installments.  IE: $190/mo x 6 months (June-Nov). Email us for payment options.

Fun Facts About Costa Rica


Costa Rica is one of the happiest countries in the world. They abolished their army in 1949 and instead reinvest the funds in education, health care, and pensions.


25% of the land in Costa Rica is protected in over 100 national parks, reserves, and refuges. In addition, they're on their way to becoming the first carbon-neutral country in the world.

Pura Vida

You'll hear this common greeting and soon learn that it's also a way of life in Costa Rica. Everything is good, no worries, no stress- they're thankful for what they have and don't dwell on the negative.
