Synergy is a retreat center for anyone seeking relaxation or undertaking deep transformational work. Founders Robert Tharp and Angie Caballero envisioned a luxury haven for people on a journey of self-discovery. The universe delivered them exactly what they needed at every given opportunity to dream up and create this special space. So the retreat center was named ‘Synergy’ because of the perfect alignment and synchronicities that happened along the way.

Enclosed by mountainous rainforest, Synergy Costa Rica is a safe cocoon of high-vibrational energy, where anything is possible so guests can start to unfurl their wings to soar. Breathe into an inspirational morning yoga class, observe the surrounding magical wildlife, meditate, and heal in private nature nooks throughout the property. Enjoy your own quiet space in an elegant eco-luxury suite with soothing jungle and lush garden views.


Seeking enlightenment and self-discovery? Relaxation and restoration? Synergy Costa Rica is a wonderfully versatile space for any kind of healing retreat. Our Retreat Planning team can take care of everything you need from arrival to departure.

Synergy Costa Rica is approximately 2.5 miles away from two different beaches, including the Marino Ballena National Park. A quick 10 minute drive. The Synergy team can also arrange a taxi for your beach trip. If you would like a shorter walk to water, there is a private trail on our property to the Uvita river, just a 2 minute walk away.
From the main center of Uvita at the BCR (Bank of Costa Rica), take the paved road going towards the mountain. The paved road becomes a dirt road after 200 meters. Follow this road until you see a small cemetery on your right, from here Synergy is only 200 meters away. Continue straight (don’t make up a left to go up the mountain) and follow signs to Synergy. After continuing on this road on the right side you will come to a white and black wall and gated entrance to Synergy, welcome!
Uvita is on the South Pacific of Puntarenas province, located in the area known as Costa Ballena. Uvita is a charming village next to river, enclosed by the Pacific ocean and mountainous rainforest surroundings and active tropical wildlife. It is described by many as one of the most biologically diverse areas in the world and where the jungle meets the ocean. Uvita’s sandy palm beaches are situated within Marino Ballena National Park. A protected coral reef makes for ideal swimming, surfing, snorkeling and diving. Other popular activities include hiking or driving to pristine waterfalls, horseback riding and sunbathing at the beach. Uvita is uniquely located between three of Costa Rica’s most impressive and enchanting national parks.
