5 days rekindle romance couples retreat is organized by Rima Danielle a Licensed Marriage & family therapist and Russ Taplin a vegan chef. This is an all-inclusive retreat. This retreat experience is special because you and your partner will get the benefit of decades of research on what makes marriages work and what doesn't. That's because each day, we'll have fun as we explore the 7 principles that Dr. John Gottman, world's leading "love doctor", has identified in successful & unsuccessful marriages.
In this retreat you as a couple will discover
Imagine you're driving down the main rustic road of Mal Pais, surfers all around, the ocean peaking through the jungle to your right. Your driver turns up a road and you begin to ascend into the jungle, higher and higher.
Soon you arrive to Casa Mango. You enter, and the first thing you notice is that you're surrounded by lush green jungle.
You're taken to your bedroom and you set your stuff down to relax. Ahhh... you've finally arrived.
Plop down on the luscious bed, kick off your shoes, take a shower and relax with a tropical fruit smoothie or a cold beer before the adventures begin. You'll have time to watch the sunset before dinner, where you'll meet everyone and settle in.
You’ll be staying in a private room in our house with a private entrance and bathroom! Enjoy spectacular ocean views from your private balcony. Hot water, AC, WiFi and more are featured throughout the property.
Throughout the week, you'll awaken with the howler monkeys as you enjoy the comfort of luxury within the peace and quiet of the wild and enchanting Costa Rican jungle.
Savor the jungle views during breakfast. Fresh coffee in hand, look out to the horizon and let your worries melt away as the waves of the ocean roll into the shore.
Spend the afternoon bathing in the sun and dipping in and out of the natural tidepools. Come sunset sip on tropical cocktails while watching the sun melt into the horizon leaving a dazzling trail of fire in the sky.
Enjoy gourmet food prepared by Rima & our private chef and dine to the sounds of nature and the crashing waves in the distance.
The centre is run by Rima Danielle who is a licensed marriage and family therapist (in the state of California), a yoga teacher, vegan advocate & retreat leader/host.
Rima work's on-line or in person as a psychotherapist, she runs exclusive, private couples retreat in Costa Rica, hosts plant medicine ceremonies & retreat (and help clients integrate their experiences), and also hosts “The Rima the Jungle Girl Podcast”.
In her words: "I have a pretty interesting story! Since 2012, I've been travelling to and living in Costa Rica. From 2014 - 16, I brokered the $1.8 million deal for the sale of a boutique hotel and then became the manager of that hotel. I managed the hotel, the vegan/vegetarian on-site restaurant and I oversaw the yoga program until the end of 2018. That's how I ended up full-time in Costa Rica! Before that, I was working as a marriage and family therapist in California, as I am back to doing now, but with so many more skills and new experiences to add.
I'm back to doing what I love, which is working with clients as a therapist, healer and retreat leader."
