Prana Rainforest Retreat is nestled in the Costa Rican Rainforest, directly on the border of  world famous Manuel Antonio National Park, just a few minutes from the beach on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica.

Our retreat is designed to offer you romantic, relaxed elegance in one of the most spectacular locations on earth.

Our Guest Villa caters to just one couple at any time, allowing hosts and owners Mark and Jon to focus their full attention on creating your perfect vacation retreat experience.

Our packages can include daily gourmet breakfasts, expert massage therapy and professional yoga instruction while on the property, and then perhaps head out to experience one of our area’s many exciting nature and adventure day trips.

The retreat’s Guest Villa measures a very generous 1400 square feet, and opens onto your own private swimming pool surrounded by the lush tropical rainforest. Your Villa includes a  kingsized bedroom, spacious living room,  starting November 2019 a full kitchen, and a very special step through rain shower room which opens up onto your private pool deck. Have you ever wanted to look up from your shower and see a flock of toucans in the trees above? It happens here!

We built our retreat for lounging, whether it is resting in a hammock on your private covered deck by the waterfall, reading a book on the cushioned Bali Bed suspended over your private pool, having a glass of wine on the day bed in your livingroom, or taking a nap on your king sized antique bed from India._Casa_Prana06

Your Villa is furnished with museum quality furnishings collected from India, Indonesia and Thailand, and the open air design allows the cool jungle breezes to pass through, or you can fully air condition the space when you like.

Each and every one of these spaces has a wonderful view into our surrounding rainforest, and we also have trails traversing the property which are yours at any time.


The wildlife is abundant and it is very common to have in the trees, right above your pool, monkeys, toucans, sloths, or parrots who have no idea that they have crossed over from the National Park onto our property.


Prana Rainforest Retreat is a wonderful very private get away which you can consider your own secluded resort spa and receive massages, yoga classes and lounge around all day. You can also choose to use us as your place to head off from each day after breakfast and experience our beautiful beaches and adventure excursions that make Manuel Antonio a world class resort destination.


We are of course delighted to help you plan your excursions, including white water rafting, waterfall rappelling, horse back riding, night time jungle tours, zip lining, and many other adventures for which Manuel Antonio is so famous.

Please join us for a visit, we would love to have you!

Your hosts, Jonathan Harper and Mark Goldstein.
