Costa Rica Retreat


Twice as long as our Previous retreats... for twice the fun & adventure!

Jaco, Puntarenas, Costa Rica

January 28 - February 3, 2024

Only 6 spots left!

January weather in Jaco is considered the best of the year for visiting!


Join us for a week long retreat, twice as long as our previous retreats, offering more time to balance adventure, exploration and physical activity with time to unwind, relax by the pool, take leisurely walks on the beach, enjoy the local shopping or even nap!


Another special treat for this retreat! To give us a true Costa Rican experience, a local chef will be preparing some of our meals! 

Together we will:

  • Explore the trails around Jaco and surrounding areas

  • Run (or walk!) on the beach

  • Practice yoga in paradise

  • Spend time soaking in the vibe in Jaco

  • Relax in our own private swimming pool

  • Be soothed to rest with yoga nidra in the evenings

  • Take time out from the hustle of life to just BE

  • Enjoy in-house meals, laughter and lots of fun!

Optional "add-on" activities* may include:

  • Zip lining

  • Snorkeling

  • Boat tours & more!

(* Optional add-on activities are not included in retreat price and availability varies.

Participants can choose from these activities but there is no pressure to participate if they don't sound appealing to you!) 

Accommodations for our Costa Rica Retreat will be a mind-blowingly gorgeous property with a private pool. Included in the retreat price is a retreat shuttle from the airport to the property & back (about a 90 minute drive) so all you have to do is fly into San Jose International Airport!* 


Rooms will be assigned based on order of registration, so those who register first will have first choice.** See room types below!

*You must choose a flight that arrives & departs within our set windows in order to take advantage of the retreat shuttle. Arrival time window will be shared a few months before the retreat.

** While our goal is to honor specific room requests, we do reserve the right to switch room assignments if absolutely necessary.

GritChicks Retreats we are family

We are family

From the moment you walk in the door at our retreats, you are family.


Every choice we make, down to the properties we host our retreats in, is centered around this simple truth.

This is a space to feel comfortable being 100% YOU. Acceptance, encouragement, support and inspiration are the hallmarks of GritChicks Retreats.

Downtime to just BE

When we're not exploring the trails, enjoy the gorgeous Costa Rica property, hang out in the pool, take time to yourself to read a book or even nap!


At GritChicks Retreats, we strive to find a balance between activity and rest, so you have time to recharge, recenter and let go of life's stressors for a while.

There is nothing you "have to" do. This is YOUR retreat.

Gorgeous Accommodations

Enjoy a shared king, shared queen,  private queen, or a 2 person bunk room. Some rooms have private bathrooms and some have shared bathrooms. See registration options for details.


Shared rooms are for ladies attending together.

Rooms with private baths can only be reserved by pairs of 2 ladies attending together.


Grit Chicks retreats are small group running/hiking, yoga and outdoor adventure-based getaways for women. We've designed these retreats to be a relaxed, fun place for women to come together and share their passion for movement, adventure and self-discovery in a space that is separate from our everyday lives and responsibilities. A space where we can just BE for a few days, to quiet the chatter of all our daily responsibilities for a few days, so we can hear what our hearts are trying to tell us.

Grit Chicks Retreats are a chance for women to step a little outside of their comfort zones by trying new things, while also taking time to clear our minds, refocus and explore our true power. All while creating lifelong memories with friends, old and new.

PLEASE NOTE: While our retreats include a walking/hiking group option for women who prefer not to run, the hikes can often be still strenuous and involve a significant amount of elevation gain. (balanced by a heathy dose of relaxation, I promise;) ) By attending, you agree that you are physically healthy, willing and able to participate in strenuous hikes.

GritChicks Retreats are NOT running technique camps or training camps, fitness bootcamps or nutritional retreats, and no "official" advice will be given with regard to running, fitness or nutrition. (Though we are certainly open to sharing and brainstorming ideas and experiences!)

Grit Chicks Retreats are not "luxury" retreats. We know women tend to put our own desires on the back burner to care for others, so our goal is to make the retreats as affordable as possible, to make the decision to spend money on yourself guilt-free! To that end, we offer shared sleeping spaces in beautiful properties (private bedrooms may be available) instead of private hotel rooms. And be prepared to throw together a wrap of your choice for lunch or join the group in a taco bar night or something similar! 

One of our areas of consistent positive feedback is the lack of pressure on our retreats. At Grit Chicks Retreats, we believe life is structured enough, so we keep a very relaxed schedule. If adhering to a strict schedule appeals to you, our retreats would not be a good fit.

We set the basic activities for each day (i.e. 1 group run or hike, 1 group yoga session & one group activity), and let the rest unfold as our participants desire. We have found that some groups like more downtime, some like extra yoga sessions, some even like to explore the local shopping! This is YOUR retreat, and we are here to customize it as much as possible. The last thing we want is for you to feel like you have tight deadlines and expectations like in "real" life.
