Imagine awakening to the caress of a gentle breeze, the music of the rainforest echoing in the background, and your senses intoxicated by the heady aroma of Costa Rican coffee. As you look out, the sunrise begins to paint the Pacific Ocean with splashes of pink and orange. This is not a dream. It is a typical morning at Ikigai Labs' artist residence retreat in Pavones.

Picture this: a luxurious villa set among rolling hills, with sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean - that's your new studio. This isn't just any old retreat, this is Pavones, famed for its epic left-hand surf break, a cornucopia of biodiversity and a wellspring of Pura Vida vibes. Wake up to the chatter of monkeys, the trills of exotic birds, and the rustle of the emerald canopy. Let the rhythm of nature guide your creativity and inspire fresh masterpieces.

Our retreat is a jaw-dropping, four-bedroom architectural marvel, including two master suites, each with private terraces for prime wildlife spotting. Immerse yourself in beauty, both inside and out, with floor-to-ceiling windows that frame breath-taking ocean views. But, this retreat isn’t just about the grind. We’re all about balance! Unroll your yoga mat or meditate to the rhythm of the ocean. Engage with the warm, welcoming local community, indulge in the vibrant flavors of Costa Rican cuisine, and absorb the rich cultural tapestry that adds color to your art.

With our commitment to eco-friendly practices, we've teamed up with local permaculture experts to transform our villa's surrounding area into a productive paradise, bursting with tropical fruits and veggies. Who knows? The taste of a fresh-picked jackfruit or starfruit might just be the muse you need.

As a place renowned for its left-point breaks, it offers endless inspiration in the form of its untamed beauty and the raw energy of its waves. But perhaps, more importantly, the slow-paced, serene lifestyle of Pavones allows artists to escape the noise of the world and truly focus on their craft.

Ikigai Labs' artist retreat at Pavones is a testament to our commitment to fostering creativity. It's not just about providing a picturesque environment; it's about creating a space where artists can connect with themselves and their work on a deeper level.
