Wharf Rat Retreat Itinerary

What is Wharf Rat Retreat?

Welcome to the second annual Grateful Dead Spiritual Wellness Retreat in Costa Rica! This retreat is a celebration of like-minded individuals gathering in one of the most beautiful places on Earth to nurture their mind, body, and spirit. Set against the backdrop of the stunning mountains of Costa Rica, our retreat takes place on a former permaculture farm that has been transformed into an organic rustic retreat center.
We have limited the retreat to only 20 spots, ensuring an intimate and personalized experience for all participants. Over the course of seven days and six nights, we will embark on a journey of self-discovery, connection, and growth. Each day will be filled with various activities designed to nourish the mind, body, and spirit.
