Retiro El Santuario, the Sanctuary Retreat.
Retiro El Santuario, the Sanctuary Retreat is located in the San Gerardo area of Cerro de la Muerte (2600 meters over sea level). Amongst the humid Tropical, this zone is the most important water producer area in all Costa Rica.
The vegetation here serves as a giant sponge which absorbs the moisture directly from the clouds, and works even when it does not rain. This area is very rich in endemic species, beautiful and unique in the whole world.
