Win a Week for Two at Farm of Life in Costa Rica

Two lucky winners will enjoy a weeklong stay at a much-loved boutique health retreat in Costa Rica, sponsored by Natural Awakenings and Farm of Life (Finca de Vida).

Secluded high in the cooling mountains above Dominical, with views of the Pacific Ocean, Farm of Life offers yoga classes, health counseling, educational retreats, a wide variety of area activities and a delicious, raw food menu, featuring fresh produce from their permaculture garden. The property features spring-fed pools, an organic farm, mountainside yoga deck with sunset views of the Pacific Ocean, an inviting common house and delightful hilltop cottages and cabins.

The prize includes shared accommodations for two, ground transportation to and from the San José airport, nightly dinners and use of the communal kitchen and the farm’s fruits and vegetables to prepare your own breakfast and lunches. Winners will also enjoy health coaching, yoga sessions, two waterfall hikes, a beach excursion, permaculture farm tour and tour of Manuel Antonio National Park.

The best part is simply relaxing in this very special mountain retreat with likeminded international guests, while learning how to create a healthier lifestyle. Owners Jody and Brian Calvi have a well-deserved reputation for attentive, loving service and skillful health counseling devoted to helping guests explore the inner world of personal health while enjoying the peaceful, healing and inspirational natural surroundings.
