The type of retreat and the retreat center itself are the biggest factors here. Costa Rica is known for not being the most affordable place, having been a tourist destination for the US for some time.
Like everywhere though, there are always affordable options, you just need to spend the time to search out what matches your requirements.
It just depends where you want to go, the cost of flying may be different and so total cost should be considered when comparing.
Partners are very responsive here. If you are considering attending a retreat in Costa Rica this week or next then please send an inquiry on the retreat that interests you most. It won’t take long to hear back.
