We are excited to announce Zūnya’s second co-creation with the school L.I.F.E (love intelligence for evolution) for a 3-week summer camp designed for families to come learn, grow, play and make long-lasting memories in nature.
As our kids learn more about themselves, their emotions and the world, we acknowledge the importance of upgrading with them. This year we'll have a program also for adults to understand how to guide them better
* The program age is between 4-and 11 years old, but let us know if your children are not within this range! We are considering extending this year to toddlers so more families can join.
A new educational community based on the premise of BEING before KNOWING, L.I.F.E. seeks to sow seeds of awareness, love, and wisdom in both Spanish and English-speaking children, parents, and teachers.
L.I.F.E. focuses on shifting the old model of doing + having = being to one of being + doing = having.
L.I.F.E educational model is based on the premise that there is no greater teacher than LIFE itself, that is why we simply promote and present the right circumstances, spaces, material and sources of inspiration, through which students can learn via direct experience and acquire expansive knowledge and true wisdom, creating profound emotional engagement in the process of learning, a process that will be completely based on the interests and aptitudes of each particular student.
Paola Beléndez, Co-founder of L.I.F.E. has a career of more than 15 years of experience in human development and spirituality issues. She is also author of the book Volar Despierta, and a mother of three little ones. Since the birth of her first child 6 years ago, she has dedicated herself to transforming educational paradigms that allow children to grow and develop from their unlimited potential.

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 still at a very early stage of development. We would like to invite you to be a part of this incredible journey from the beginning in order to grow from and alongside you.
Our food philosophy at Nula, Zūnya's kitchen, is centered around a plant-based lifestyle by inviting others to live a more conscious and healthy lifestyle 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 feeling nourished, loving, and caring for yourself and others. Neighborhood farmers markets are the inspiration behind each plate and local gardens can bring something collectively to the table.
* Breakfast is included in your stay
Book your room and come share a more playful approach to better appreciate the amazing perfection that unfolds all around us.
