We are a small independent business and each and every reservation is very important to us. Besides putting lots of love, time and energy in organising our retreats we also have to make non-recoverable payments in advance to make them happen, so please read our terms and conditions carefully before you book.   Thank you!

When you sign up for a Bienestar retreat, we ask for a non-refundable deposit of $500. USD.

 (Only If we can rebook your space, we will then gladly refund your deposit.) 

The Remainder Payment

Please make sure the remaining payment is in our account no later than 4 weeks before the retreat starts to hold your spot. We will send you a reminder a week before the final payment date, yet if we do not receive your payment on time,  we have no choice but to make your spot available again and you will forfeit your deposit.  No refund, no exception.   

(2022 Golfo Dulce retreat dates February 12 - 18,  final payment received by Tuesday, January 12, 2022


Bienestar retreats does not offer refunds of any kind on your deposit, unless we can rebook you space.  So before signing up, please make sure you can make it. Refunds for the remaining amount depends on when we receive the cancellation. Should you need to cancel with more than 4 weeks until the retreat date, you will be refunded 100% of the total amount (minus the $500. deposit). Should you need to cancel within 4 weeks of the retreat date, 50% of the total amount (minus the $500. deposit) will be refunded. Finally, under no circumstance will there be any refunds given for cancellation requests made within 2 weeks of the retreat date.

Our Rights

All guests must be vaccinated (thank you!)  And we ask you to provide a copy of your record with registration. Please check with your government as well as the Costa Rican government if you are allowed to travel to the retreat.  I will send all clients the most current requirements of Costa Rica and give you updates, changes if they occur.  Bienestar is not responsible for your additional travel efforts and costs such as COVID tests and quarantining upon return, nor is this a valid cancellation reason.

If we can not host a retreat and we must cancel, we will notify you as soon as possible and you will receive a 100% refund. However Bienestar is not accountable for your expenses incurred in preparation for the retreat, such as airline tickets, loss of work, visa fees and/or other costs associated with preparation for your trip. (We never have, but these are unusual times). In

7 years I only had to cancel a program once at the beginning of covid and I refunded  100%.


Due to non-recoverable payments that we must make in advance to secure the retreat, exceptions to our policies cannot be made for any reason, including (but not limited to) natural disasters, bad weather, acts of terrorism, illness, pandemics, health conditions, medical or personal or family or work emergencies, or change of mind. If you cannot reach the retreat due to unforeseen circumstances such as (but not limited to) strikes, weather circumstances, and missed, delayed or canceled flights, the retreat fees remain non-refundable. If you arrive late or need to leave your retreat early, you will not receive any refund on the remaining time of your scheduled stay.


Nobody books a retreat with the intention of canceling it, but the 2020 has shown us that unexpected events do occur, so we strongly recommend purchasing travel insurance. Furthermore, you participate in the classes, hikes and workshops at your own risk and you must employ your own judgment as to which movements, positions, and exercises are appropriate for your level of training, overall physical fitness and experience as well as mental stability. It is highly recommended that all participants have international health insurance that also covers medical care and transport home if needed. Costa Rica does have active volcanoes and other weather conditions that can hamper your arrival.  All guests must either be COVID-19 vaccinated and send us a copy of your vaccination record with registration.



This retreat is meant to invest in your personal life and not for your work/blog/website and any kind of promotion of products, brands or services. Professional cameras are not allowed during your stay. Please respect the privacy of other guests and do not photograph any other guests unless they have given consent. Any content creation with a commercial background is not allowed. Thank you!
