Top Reasons to Stay at Birchcreek Costa Rica

  • Taking place at a secluded hotel in a seaside town on the Pacific Coast, Birchcreek Costa Rica’s weight-loss and wellness programs include a range of daily physical activities, a structured, low-calorie meal plan or juice diet, and a departure package filled with recipes and tips on how to stay on track at home. Spa treatments are available.
  • The Jump Start program offers at least 2.5 hours of daily dynamic fitness workouts complemented by nutritional meals. Guests attend a detox orientation and healthy-food workshops, and choose between an all-juice diet and a clean-food meal plan.
  • The Pure and Simple program focuses on physical and mental rejuvenation without the fixed schedule or mandatory workouts. A raw juice diet is at the core of this cleansing retreat.
  • Birchcreek’s all-juice plan revolves around nutritious drinks such as carrot-ginger juice and heartier dinner concoctions. Smoothies and fresh salads comprise the 1,000–1,200 daily calorie clean-food plan.
  • Guest rooms have views of the mountains or the ocean. The unspoiled Carrillo Beach is only a 5-minute walk away.
  • During your free time, you can lounge in the waterfront pool, indulge in a massage, or take part in adventure tours, such as ziplining through the jungle or kayaking in the Pacific Ocean.
  • This Groupon includes a complimentary monkey overlook tour, in which guests hike through a scenic preserve overlooking the Pacific Ocean—a prime spot for spotting indigenous monkeys. Purchasers of the seven-night options will also enjoy a hike to visit a nearby three-tier waterfall.
  • Past guests have seen great weight loss results after participating in the retreat; view testimonials here.

Guanacaste, Costa Rica: Forested Mountains and Pristine Beaches

The province of Guanacaste in northwestern Costa Rica takes its name from the Guanacaste tree, an umbrella-shaped species also known, less picturesquely, as the earpod tree. These trees blanket the slopes of the Guanacaste and Tilaran Mountains, helping to shelter the coastline from rainstorms and keep the beaches warm and dry.

Stick to the shore of peaceful Playa Carrillo and you'll find white-sand beaches and plenty of waterfront activities. But it's worth heading farther afield to take in some of the province's national parks. Starting in October, Marino las Baulas National Park serves as a major nesting ground for leatherback turtles. And in the north, Santa Rosa National Park is known for its legendary surf breaks, including one featured in the documentary The Endless Summer II.

The program was good. There were only two people participating the week I attended but it was perfect as we were both at the same fitness level. I would do it again.
