Costa Rica is renowned for its stunning biodiversity, beautiful warm weather, and vast protected spaces. The country is home to dense jungles, active volcanos, spectacular waterfalls, and a vibrant culture. Here you will experience “pura vida” everywhere—the pure or simple way of life. Time seems to move a bit slower here offering leaders time to relax, recharge, and reignite their purpose. Exchange daily stressors for strategic thinking and leadership development among one of the world’s most beautiful backdrops.
Immerse yourself in a curated experience among ocean waves, warm winds, and the wonders of nature. The Nosara adventure includes:
Leadership is not a role – it’s a way of being! We cannot not have influence – the question is are we having positive or negative influence, appreciation or depreciation? We are all leaders, but you have to “awaken” to the true leader inside.
Get ready for the adventure of a lifetime among the natural paradise that is Nosara, Costa Rica.
People trek to Nosara for enlightenment. The abounding heart energy and healing quality is unlike anywhere else in the world. Nosara is home to yoga retreats, world-renowned wildlife sanctuaries, surfing, and a slower pace of life. The convergence offers a one-of-a-kind community to support your leadership journey. As you leave your footprints on sandy beaches, lush jungles, and dusty roads, Nosara will leave its mark on your heart and soul.
You may just discover the fountain of youth during your quest. Nosara sits within the Nicoya Peninsula, considered one of the world’s 5 Blue Zones, where people frequently live to reach age 100. Locals attribute their longevity to the quality air and water, year-round fresh food, active lifestyles, and deep sense of community.
