Get your energies balanced and tune back in with yourself with some Reiki, Massage, Meditation or Yoga after too much sun and sand. Or just come in to maintain that beloved state of Bliss which you are sure to find within the jungle wonderland of Caribbean Costa Rica. Namaste.

To Know Before You Go

Jungle Life is not for everyone! We want a near-to-nature experience in order to sink into an appreciation of earth’s natural cycles. We live in peace with all creatures here…including the less-desired ones! If this doesn’t seem like your cup of tea, a luxury resort may be more your style. We are a jungle lodge, permaculture project and located in a surf town.

Also, when the rain comes down in the rainforest (it has a tendency to do that!) it comes down HARD! Temperatures can be much cooler than during the daytime. Bring warmer layers for any rainy nights.

How To Get There

OM Puerto Viejo is located at Cashew Hill Jungle Lodges, less than a 5 minute walk from town Center. The closest airport is in San Jose (Alajuela) Costa Rica.You can see the public bus schedule or the Caribe Shuttle schedule’s online.
