Prana is simply the best. You will experience nothing like this place anywhere else in the world. Your backyard is literally the rainforest and the hosts just knock it out of the park, consistently. My husband and I just returned from a week at Prana Rainforest Retreat and It was, by far, the best vacation we have ever taken...hands down....

After a long (intense) cruise, we headed to Prana for a week off. WOW... Right on the rain forest, we were able to see and hear animals we have never seen in the wild before. The accommodation is huge, and very accommodating. Everything we needed - with coffee machine, microwave, WIFI, large private pool, and very private areas down in...

Let me just start by saying how incredible Mark & John are! From the second we arrived at our location, they catered to us like family. Being our first time in Costa Rica, we felt like a weight of nervousness was lifted off our shoulders right when we met up with Mark at a nearby cafe. We arrived at nighttime,...

This was the perfect location for our week-long honeymoon! Secluded and peaceful, bordering the national park, yet close to great sights and places to eat. Mark and Jon were exceptional hosts. They listened to our preferences about places to visit and dine out and made wonderful recommendations. They accommodated our special dietary restrictions and came up with delicious breakfasts that...

Stayed for 3 days in April after spending 4 days further south. What a great experience. We watched sloths, monkeys and toucans while lounging in the pool. Very tranquil and away from the hustle and bustle but it's all just a 10 minute ride away. The hosts were fabulous and tailored our stay based on our likes including breakfasts and...

Mark and John are some of the nicest most professional people you could ever hope to meet. They make you feel like you are family from the moment they greet you for the massage and are very attentive to you and your bodies needs. I had the best Thai massage I have ever had with Mark. I literally passed out...

Prana Rainforest Retreat is an amazing couples paradise from the beautiful Bali decor to the private pool and yoga/hammock area overlooking a waterfall. Mark and Jon took such great care of us, serving us the most delicious food and recommending great restaurants with gorgeous views. We cannot wait to come back!

My partner and I travelled to costa rica especially to stay at Prana Rainforest Retreat for a relaxing, healthy, calm vacation (a honeymoon of sorts) and Prana far surpassed our expectations! It truly was one of the most remarkable, luxurious, relaxing, healthy and stimulating vacations we have taken. The private, single-couple retreat on the edge of the rainforest with many...
