          Questions & AnswersAsk a question
          It looks more like a vacation spot than an organized health retreat. If one is coming to restore its health, he would expect balanced meals,not just self-prepared raw fruits and veggies. I thought this is the main point of any health retreat. Also, it is not affordable for an average Joe battling his way back to health. May be that is what it costs to maintain the retreat in Costa Rica, but $70-100/per night is expensive. On youtube video they said (in 2010) $3,500 for 3months including all meals, treatments, etc.
