The Property

The 800 acre RISE property is set on the beautiful slopes of the Talamanca mountains, conveniently located 20 minutes outside of San Isidro de El General, Costa Rica's second largest city outside of the Central Valley. We strive to live in total harmony with our environment, and in return, the land provides us with nearly everything we need to sustain ourselves in all aspects of healthy eating and general wellness.

RISE’s unique location within the tropics but at an elevation of 3000 feet above sea level provides us with an incredible climate. We call it our Eternal Spring, and it results in comfortable temperatures year-round.


A crystal clear mountain stream flows through the RISE property creating beautiful waterfalls and natural pools. Our drinking water is sourced directly from pristine, potable mountain springs located within our property.


The micro-climate that covers the RISE property is perfect for year-round organic food production. Abundant water, extensive sunshine, consistent temperatures and rich soil offer the ideal environment for high yield production. Proper, purpose driven design of our organic farm using permaculture principles amplifies the yields and provides for all the food needs of both the retreat and residential community.


RISE is a paradise unto itself featuring stunning views of the surrounding mountains and valleys. We are located a stone’s throw away from the Chirripo National Park, Los Cusingos Bird Sanctuary and Las Nubes Nature Preserve. In its commitment to conservation, Costa Rica has set aside an incredible 25% of the country as National Parks and Reserves.


While our community feels insulated by the natural surroundings, RISE’s proximity to San Isidro de El General offers easy access to modern amenities. Regularly scheduled commercial air service to San Jose -a short 25 minute flight – is available through Sansa Airlines.
