Kinkara Luxury Retreat Center at Rise, Costa Rica

A few weeks ago, I had one of the most transformational experiences of my life with the most amazing group of people with 1heart in one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen at Kinkara Retreat Center at Rise in Costa Rica.

Rise is an 800 acre property in the mountains near San Isidro, Costa Rica. Rise is an eco-village, retreat center, and farm with a purpose to embrace learning, wellbeing, and living in their most beautifully expressed forms. Kinkara is the luxury retreat center where we stayed on the 1heart journey.

1heart's purpose is to foster a new generation of heart-led leaders birthing conscious companies — using business as a force of good to transform lives and the planet. Learn more at

Kinkara hit all the marks - beauty, nature, luxury, service, sustainability and more.

When we first arrived at Kinkara, the workers escorted us through the beautiful land lot with torches with a gorgeous view of the city lights in the valley below. They told us a story of ancient traditions on the walk.

When I walked in I was absolutely breath taken by the beauty of the center. Feeling the love of everyone there was incredible as the handed us cold towels with essential oil and offered us tea. They showed us the land, gave some information about the stay and said to ask for anything we need.

The Operations Manager informed me on how they are doing their part to be sustainable and eco-friendly.
