Our stay at Prana was flawless from the start. The property is incredible - beautiful, private, peaceful, but close to everything you might need in town. You are surrounded by the sights and sounds of the rainforest. We saw monkeys every day and had tree frogs and a huge toad visiting our pool every night. The food was so good,... More

The Howler monkeys have been around everyday this week as well, and the baby White Face monkey that we helped rescue the day you left is doing great at... More

From the second we walked in we were blown away by the amazing Balinese decor, overall ambiance and zen-like vibe. Every detail was so well thought out and beautifully put together.

My husband and I recently stayed at Prana for our honeymoon and were blown away by how perfect it was. From the minute we walked in, our jaws dropped with how gorgeous the property is--so much more beautiful than the photos can portray. Mark and Jon were kind, generous, and patient to a fault with us the whole trip. They... More

You guys were so great to have around. One of our longer stays, 10 days, and it seems to go by so quickly. You both inhaled Costa Rica by doing so many great excursions and we never get tired of hearing how great our guest's days were. I have to say, I am thrilled that Maren went from being a... More

I don't even know where to begin! My husband and I traveled a lot while single, so we wanted to spend our honeymoon somewhere new, yet adventurous. First of all, Costa Rica is an incredibly beautiful country and Mark & Jon really have designed a home that truly enhances the natural beauty of the area. My husband and I spent... More

It's almost too hard to even describe the luxury of Prana Rainforest Retreat. This property is the perfect escape from it all, you’ll be entrenched in the beauty and wildlife of Costa Rica in your own private Balinese style villa.

This is very truly the best place we have ever stayed on a vacation! Mark and Jon went out of their way to make sure everything was absolutely perfect. Their warmth and hospitality make you feel like you are staying with friends, which is an atmosphere you can't find at a large hotel. Everything that was advertised met, and then... More

My girlfriend and I recently had the privilege of spending time with Mark and Jon at their Prana Rainforest Villa.

Prana Rainforest Villa was our best stay in Costa Rica. The villa is wonderfull, breakfast excellent and the setting just in front of the jungle marvolous. All was excellent. Many thanks to Mark and John.
