light your life

february 15th-22nd, 2025

light your life

The time is now. To light your life. Step into the fullest version of yourself as we embark into a week of transformation, connection, relaxation and exploration. Join our tribe of seekers on a mission to elevate ourselves and the world.

We are all a brilliant source of light, tenderness, and love. And at different times, we all need support to brighten that light or even bring it back to life. This 11th annual iLa retreat is just that. A week of practicing and supporting what is light-giving to each of us; living from the center of ourselves in this magical place of sunshine, waves, and pure living. 

your experience

iLa Retreat Costa Rica is a carefully curated week of our favorite life-giving experiences here in Nosara.  Since 2008 we have explored this land and shared in this community. In 2014 we brought our first retreat to Nosara and are grateful to be sharing this iLa Retreat with you today. Below are elements of our retreat, and are some of our favorite things to experience in this magical place.

It is as simple as planting a tree. At iLa Retreats we believe in giving back. By planting trees we actively contribute to the beauty and preservation of beautiful Costa Rica.

what to expect

iLa Retreats allow for the time it takes to step out of your routine and into the magic of experience, ceremony, and intention. We have designed a week intended for you to access what needs attention in your life.  We deliver the tools needed to greet that place with grace and excitement. This week is for you. We take care of the planning, yet everything is optional. Allow us to empower your most authentic experience.
