Fit & Fly Costa Rica

January 18 - 25, 2020

Join us for Fit & Fly Costa Rica, which will be held January 18 - 25, 2020, at Villa Don Vito, a private villa located in Tamarindo, Costa Rica. The Retreat Host will be Sarah Von Bargen, and the fitness instructor will be Katie Davies.

Tamarindo, Costa Rica

Tamarindo is a beach town located on the Nicoya Peninsula on the northwest Pacific coast of Costa Rica. Home to several of Costa Rica's best beaches like Playa Tamarindo and Playa Grande, Tamarindo's beaches are set on long, wide bays with soft sand, warm water, and palm trees.  Tamarindo is known as a surfing mecca with five world-class surf breaks as well as spots that are perfect for beginner surfers.  Tamarindo is also known for its wild life spotting opportunities with Leatherback Turtles nesting on Tamarindo's beaches each year and howler monkeys hanging from the trees.  The town of Tamarindo has some of Costa Rica's best restaurants as well as ample boutique shopping and nightlife.  Travel + Leisure magazine has named Tamarindo as one of Costa Rica's "Best Girlfriend Getaways."

Villa Don Vito

Fit & Fly Costa Rica guests will stay at Villa Don Vito, a private villa located in Tamarindo. Despite its 8,000 sq. ft. size and eight bedrooms each with its own en suite bathroom, the villa has an intimate feel.    

Villa Don Vito's bedrooms encircle the villa's common areas, featuring a state-of-the-art kitchen, a central living space with ample seating, an elegant dining area, and entertainment options like complimentary WiFi, a pool table, large flat-screen TV, and CD/DVD player with home theater surround sound.  Outdoors, Villa Don Vito has an infinity edge pool with waterfall, sun loungers, outdoor shower, covered deck with lounge, and tropical gardens.

Villa Don Vito offers 24/7 concierge service; daily housekeeping; a full time caretaker, pool keeper, and gardener; and a private chef who will prepare healthy and delicious breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks during the retreat.  The villa is located a short 10 minute walk to Playa Tamarindo and to shopping, restaurants, and nightlife. 

Fitness Classes, Activities, and Excursions

Fit & Fly's fitness instructor will lead daily fitness classes at the villa and on the beach during the week.  Each guest is provided one complimentary 50-minute massage at a local day spa.

During the retreat there will be various excursions outside the villa, including a surf lesson at one of the best beginner surfing beaches in Costa Rica and an "adventure day," including canopy zip lining, rappelling, horseback riding, kayak rafting, and mud bathing. Before sunset one evening, the women will enjoy a guided meditation inside the world's largest labyrinth followed by an outdoor dinner on the grounds of La Senda. 

For a supplemental fee, we are able to arrange any additional activities you would like during your retreat, including a catamaran sail, private surf lessons, stand-up paddleboarding, scuba diving, fishing, sailing, kayaking, tennis, golf, or a day at the spa.

Fit & Fly Costa Rica builds plenty of free time into the schedule each day to relax and sit by the pool with a book, walk to the beach, get a massage, take a nap, or simply hang out in the villa with the other women on the retreat.
