Our "Way of the Jaguar-kings" tours are vacation packages in which travelers explore their creative potential in the mirror of an ancient and magical culture. Various themes are demystified as we travel deep into Nature's wisdom where, 3000 years ago, Olmec sorcerers said we'd find "the heart of hearts, in the world of worlds".  

Discover the magick of a powerful precolombian civilization while visiting a veritable paradise on this Earth. Learn about human potential and experience the outstanding beauty in creation.

Sylvantherapy for the 50+ Traveler

« Examine the 8 requirements of “total wellness” ».

Latest science insists we have a responsibility for our health-age. As maturity makes an impression, acquired wisdom suggests we re-think concepts like “total wellness”. WHO (World Health Organization) redefined health to include a more holistic vision it described this way “… health is a state of complete physical, mental and social wellness.” Sounds like the recipe for a good time.

This two week vacation will give you the opportunity to learn life-affirming strategies.

The ICT (Instituto Costaricense de Turismo) invites you to “Explore Costa Rica… with no artificial ingredients”. They are proud of their natural resources. Come to enjoy them while exploring the eight keys to self-fulfillment and longevity.

Take the opportunity to experience the Earth as a rejuvenating SPA. This tour includes visits to many beautiful and interesting places, a daily regimen of Nature walks, lectures on wellness and light exercise, motivational exchanges and seminars and the practical aspects of several therapeutic approaches - and with creativity techniques designed to keep us sharp thinkers thrown into the mix for good measure.

Discover how "sylvantherapy" (latin for "forest") uses the forces in Nature to attain a sense of body/mind/spirit unity. Ancient "brujos y brujas" (healers) thought beauty was a key ingredient in maintaining health. As tropical America's "forests of kings" contain an amazing pharmacopia - such as the cool, thin mountain air, hot dry winds, dank, humid or salty breezes and steamy jungles with infinite nuance-, they can be prescribed . Costa rica's 12 bio-zones each have an effect, as do hot springs, bracing waterfalls, mineral rivers and streams, ponds, muds, clays and hot stones and cool caves; there are exotic and isolated beaches and therapeutic tools and herbals of many descriptions. Come boost your life-spirit.

During this 14 day tour for small groups of 50+ travelers, you'll be invited to truly commune with Nature and to avail yourself of its bounty, its wonder, its power and its availability, and to befriend fellow practionners along the way.

Programs For Young Adults

Get ready for the big leagues…


"Creativity, Leadership and SELF-Empowerment" - Every year Costa Rica hosts hundreds of school programs. These 14+ day tours are custom-finished with individual schools, student associations or administrations, and are designed with high school seniors, college or university students and others in mind. The programs add a practicum to your studies with a truly memorable field trip. The packages can include help with fund-raising.

The 1st tour package uncovers « a new science of life ». It includes 20 hours of creative SELF-Empowerment training in which participants examine principles of logic, strategy, “creative, lateral and breakthrough thinking" and SELF-motivation in both theory and "real life". The grou is also engaged in 20 hours of fieldwork with an important eco-project. The rest of their time is spent amazed by a veritable ecotopia and participating in some truly awesome adventures. Many schools have their trip accredited by their local education authority.

"I, Inc. - Creativity and Entrepreneurial Spirit." - This 14-day package evolved from the workshops we taught at Bell Canada's Professional Training Institute. It's been modified for young adults and includes 20 hours on "Self-motivation, Creativity and Entrepreneurial Spirit" discovery. This is about taking charge to fill needs. There's also 20 hours of volunteer work on an access to Nature project and some simply outstanding eco-adventures.

It's for anyone aged 18-30 who hasn't quite found meaning or purpose to existence.
