The Venue

Upon arrival, you will be immersed in a 33 hectares untouched jungle sanctuary. Located on the southernmost tip of the Nicoya Peninsula, on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, and in a small village called Malpais, Zunya is north of the Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve and south of Santa Teresa. 

Known for its spectacular beaches, bordered by the crystal waters of the Pacific Ocean on one end, and by a covey of jungle-covered hills on the other, this small town is a natural haven for all. Rich in biodiversity, the region’s unique wildlife is another allure for visitors to enjoy.

Zūnya is a growing regenerative system, a 2.0 version of an ecovillage, using tools such as arts, science, technology, sustainability, and spirituality to enhance our way of living, as we reconnect with nature, ourselves and each other. You will join a collective of individuals from various backgrounds and origins in the process of co-creating a new way of life. Your visit is an invitation to join the family and embark on this journey.

The food

Our food philosophy at Nula, Zūnya's kitchen, is centered around a plant-based lifestyle, inviting others to embrace a more conscious and healthy way of living, and presenting new ways of treating our planet and our body—all this while creating delicious and beautiful dishes. 

Nula is a sacred place for people to go and feel inspired about a meal. It is also a home for those who love Mother Nature and are deeply interested in caring for and protecting her. It's about nourishing, loving, and caring for yourself and others. Neighbourhood farmers' markets are the inspiration behind each plate, and we work collectively to tend to the local gardens that, in turn, take care of us. We enjoy all of our meals family-style in the open-air dining area.

* You'll receive 3 daily plant-based meals per day, excluding 1 lunch and 1 dinner.
