Review By: Kristie Buckley The Perfect Escape Escaping real life for a week at Copal was exactly what I needed. The host and her staff make you feel like family. From the moment I stepped off the shuttle I didn’t want to leave, the cozy decor, amazing location and relaxed atmosphere, makes the perfect place for a retreat. Everyday, we would all say “Oh! I think this meal is my favorite.” The food was fresh, authentic, and so delicious. I can’t wait to visit Copal again.

Review By: Catherine Holmes Wonderful! Great, relaxing experience. The host is awesome and was very responsive/helpful before I even booked the trip. The location is beautiful— it doesn’t get much better than sunrise and sunset yoga on the top floor terrace overlooking the ocean. The chefs’ meals were amaaaazing. I liked that our host had activities planned for us between yoga a few of the days but also gave us a couple days where we had free time. Oh and if you ever get a chance to do a retreat with Ricardo Castro— do it! I absolutely recommend Copal.
