Con Smania CR is a Safe and Sacred Retreat Offerings Space
Steps from a gorgeous Pacific beach on the Nicoya Peninsula, nestled in monkey-laced trees, grounds lovingly cared for by our smiling gardener and support staff, come explore our retreat center. Flexible spaces to accommodate your guests, team, and retreat leaders in style along with all the support you need from booking to way past departure.
Nothing about Con Smania Retreat Center is ordinary – just like the retreat leaders who are inspired to offer their work here.
Opened August 2022. Now accepting applications for retreat bookings as well as weekly stays.
We can accommodate up to 20 attendees and 6 team members in a highly flexible configuration.
As you drive through our gates, you take the deepest breath.... you are held.
The first thing you see is our large reception and restaurant space and the original carved wall depicting all of the delightful creatures that call our place home. Then step inside, we’ll take care of your belongings. It’s time to lighten your load in all ways.
Discover hidden gems and wide open spaces.
Start by greeting our turtles and rest your feet into the pond if you want to be tickled by our minnows. Just allow yourself to BE.
Then wander down any of the paths and you are sure to be delighted by the scents and feast for the eyes that our happy gardener has created. We won’t tell you exactly where to find all the places to rest and ponder life… we believe you will magically come upon them right when needed.
Along the way, you’ll find hammocks and loungers, chat spaces and meditation platforms. You won’t be able to resist dipping your toes into the pool and planning your many returns.

A short stroll to the Pacific
As your nervous system adjusts, you’ll begin to open your ears and realize you are hearing the waves.
Situated in a protected maritime zone, we are minutes away from Playa Buena Vista. A beach that often feels like Jurassic Park meets the water, every single day provides a different landscape as tides and time change the sand.
Known mostly to locals, and the horses that are lucky enough to tour the area, you’ll want to make time for sunrise and sunsets at the water’s edge, along with our Con Smania Beach Meditation and Caring Exercise. This activity is provided complimentary to every retreat leader.
Nine casitas and Haven, our main retreat building, provide resting and gathering spots
With units ranging from one queen bed to 2 Split King beds housing four, we can configure the spaces to meet your group of up to 20 and 8 staff and team members.
Three different places to take meals, a snack bar for all-day smoothies and conversations, and a variety of areas for classes, workshops, and meetings.
Con Smania is more than a retreat, adventure destination, or educational center.
It is all three and more — an opportunity for both a spiritual and impactful transformation as our guests journey to fulfill their life’s passion.
