Meet Your Hosts
Sam Melesko, Founder of Sam's Organics is beyond thrilled to host her second international wellness retreat at Horizon Yoga Hotel in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica. Horizon has been a second home for Sam over the last ten years and has been an inspirational place for the foundation of Sam's Organics. Through repeated visits to Horizon, eating their organic and thoughtfully crafted foods, visiting the pristine and untouched jungle beaches, and meditating on Horizon's unforgettable ocean view yoga deck, Sam's life has changed. She's excited to be co-creating this retreat experience with her soul mate and friend of over 11 years after having just finished an amazingly successful retreat here in the summer of 2018. Sam will enjoy being your guide through the week and also leading two classes near and dear to her heart on crafting your own DIY essential oil product and a local superfood and fruit experience after a raw vegan lunch! 
Nick Melesko has been practicing guitar for over twenty years so be ready to enjoy a world class musical experience throughout your journey in Costa Rica. Nick's live music classes with humble guru Yoav Geller will truly be a yoga journey like no other! Nick also provides a fun and loving photo and video experience throughout your time in Santa Teresa. Get ready to unplug and fully tap into nature and let Nick capture your breathtaking moments. Nick is the other person behind nearly every Sam's Organics success and of course behind the heart full of love Sam has and is able to offer to others. Nick is also a Registered Nurse and wellness expert that has practiced vegetarianism for over half of his life. Nick was a pivotal role in the success of the Pura Vida Wellness Retreat hosted in 2018 and he can't wait to co-lead his first retreat with his wife Sam!
The Retreat
Get ready to be fully taken care of on this once in a life time wellness and adventure experience with your significant other or friend! Enjoy 7 days and 6 nights of total bliss and whole body healing. We will enjoy 9 organic and vegetarian meals together on Horizon's ocean view restaurant deck, deliciously crafted welcome drinks and snacks as well as 3 local dinner experiences that you will remember forever! 
Nick and Sam have chosen their favorite experiences collectively over ten years into this one week retreat. Enjoy lazy afternoons on your hammock listening to the waves, then get ready to switch it up and go zip lining through the untouched jungles. We'll enjoy a day on the water discovering the nearby Tortuga Island on a Zuma Tours Snorkeling adventure and you'll end the day by getting dinner delivered to your personal balcony at Horizon! What could be more magical?!
Enjoy exploring Santa Teresa on your own, or hop on your atv and join Sam and Nick on a waterfall hike adventure that you'll surely never forget. There will be plenty of opportunities to disconnect with the world and connect with your partner through couples massages, romantic dinners, and plenty of free time throughout the retreat. 
Sam and Nick have planned just enough to give you an adventurous experience that allows you to also leave feeling rejuvenated and filled with love, harmony, and great food. Transportation and other accommodations will all be made for you so feel free to just be, Horizon's main take away message.

The Pura Vida wellness retreat was a truly incredible experience. With such fairytale accommodations, warm staff and insightful teachers - it’s hard not to leave this week in a state of bliss. Through this experience I was able to manifest change in my heart, mind and body - focusing on a specific intention and bringing that goal to life through meditative work, organic and conscious eating and connecting with a powerful tribe of healers. If you are looking for a fulfilling and unique retreat experience that incorporates adventure, yoga and organic foods - I would highly recommend this trip. These are some of the nicest accommodations I’ve ever stayed in, which also exemplified the pampering nature of the week. The food was delicious, the knowledge was invaluable, the people were inspiring, the connection to self is transformative. I have left the retreat having been given the tools to make lasting changes in my daily life. When I came to the Pura Vida wellness retreat I was experiencing serious sciatic pain and neck pain. I had brought myself to a point of stress/anxiety at work that I didn’t even know how to deal with. By the time my week with Horizon was finished, I was pain free in my lower back and felt as if all my anxiety left on a cloud. I am extremely grateful for this experience!

I really enjoyed my wellness retreat experience. I left feeling refreshed, relaxed and blessed. The beauty of Costa Rica combined with the wholeness of the yoga/meditation practice was more than I could have asked for. Thank you all for all your hard work, thoughtfulness and sharing your talents with us all. It was greatly appreciated. I would recommend this retreat to anyone.
