We are very excited about a new planned project for the Osa region of Costa Rica which will be a Costa Rica Event Center. The
owners of Las Villas de San Buenas have been working for several years on the idea and location for the Costa Rica Event Center, while at the same time I was tirelessly looking for the right in-country partner to engage with, in order to build my dream of an event center in Costa Rica. Collectively, we have been working behind the scenes for several years to get it to this point and now they are starting to share a bit of information at this time. Nick Halverson and I have known each other for years - and our timing was perfect.
The vision for the Costa Rica Event Center is a destination to host a hybrid of events, including, but not limited to:
With an event center at its hub, and private cabinas within 100 yards, this project promises exciting opportunities for retreat coordinators, event planners, wedding planners, tour operators, real estate investors, and the local community for private events.
Our live event opportunities provide participants a platform for people to meet people on a social as well as business level. The types of events will range from yoga retreats, business masterminds, hands on workshops, educational seminars, destination weddings, renewal of vows, honeymoons, tours,activities and attractions.
We have surveyed the area, cleared an old logging road (from 50 years ago) and marked all old-world and protected trees with GPS, to ensure we have minimal impact on the existing land. Our planned location of the Costa Rica retreat center located adjacent to a quebrada (stream/creek) that flows all year (including during the dry season). Thanks to the jungle tree canopy, it is rarely too sunny or too hot (it can get a bit humid – you are in a tropical rain forest after all!) and given the proximity to the creek, simply take a refreshing dip to cool off.
In fact, not only is it planned to be in the middle of a jungle, next to a river, but it is also only a five minute walk to an amazing waterfall.
The basic concept of a retreat is to get away from your daily routine so that you can see things from a fresh new perspective. Retreat opportunities are available for yoga and Pilates practitioners, we also do writers retreats, photography retreats, as well as spiritual and personal development retreat.
These types of events will be for coaches and consultants to work with their clients on expanding their projects and business. It is not all about business however. For example, golf clinics could available for helping golfers up their game, and being able to practice and play at the nearby golf course. Workshops, seminars and clinics may also be about a specific profession for example photography. Photographers need to learn about the latest techniques technology and equipment. Real estate investors need to learn about the market and learn from experienced professionals.
Mastermind events are designed to get clients through various stages in the lifecycle of their business growth. Sometimes business owners reach a plateau and can not understand why they are not growing. By masterminding with other entrepreneurs, business owners and business leaders can learn ideas and insights from others that may have had a similar challenge. No matter what level in the organization someone is, or the size of the business, it is always a good idea to reflect, and possibly, rethink, processes in order to break through business challenges.
Getting married to the person you want to spend the rest of your life with should be memorable. The event itself and the environment should also be unique. Imagine going through your wedding photo album and seeing pictures in exotic rain forest settings and tropical plants and animals.
Another wonderful Costa Rica wedding option is to have your ceremony at one of the numerous beaches here in the Osa/Bahia Ballena region. The sounds of the waves crashing, the sun beginning its beautiful blaze orange decent at the end of the day, and you and your guests may be lucky enough to see whales or dolphins in the ocean (depending on the time of year). Let us help you and your special someone, begin your new life together, with an amazing Costa Rica destination wedding.
We can provide you with a turn-key in-country wedding solution for you and your guests. We work with several hotels in the area and can also provide vacation home rental options.
We are in the final planning stages of the Costa Rica Event Center, and every day we are more optimistic about hosting future events at what will be an amazing Costa Rica destination. In the meantime, if you have an interest in photography as a beginner or professional, we invite you to attend our next Costa Rica Photography Retreat.
