A Little More About Flō
The retreat, training, and wellness center opened its doors in early 2018 and sits on the South Pacific Coast of Costa Rica in the tiny town of Uvita. Owned and operated by Steph Góngora & Dr. Ben House, Flō is the manifestation of their shared dream to open an inviting, simple and inclusive space in a natural setting.
Flō sits on 20 acres of secondary rainforest and used to house a small-scale cacao farm, so amongst the wild assortment of local flora, visitors will also see hundreds of cacao trees sprinkled throughout the property.
A long private driveway takes you far away from the already quiet entrance road, but still preserves the breathtaking views of the canopy and ocean. Here, on the central plantel, you will find Flō’s main building, communal living spaces, pool, and yoga studio + gym.
The large central building is two stories and boasts dining for 30+ guests, a full commercial kitchen, dry storage, bathrooms, and a salt pool on the first level. Just adjacent to the second story stairs is the outdoor living space with vaulted roof, and comfy, all-weather furniture.
The second story with wrap-around terrace has four separate lodging rooms, two-dorm style with shared bath, and two double-style with breath-taking views. At full capacity, the main building alone sleeps 16.
Across a wide expanse of lawn and new fruit trees, guests will find themselves at the spacious yoga shala, which doubles as a classroom and lecture hall. Again, there are props and practice space for 30+, and the studio is screened in for nighttime usage without losing any of the majestic views from the open air walls.
Flō is also home to a top of the line training facility, complete with barbells, dumbbells, jerk blocks, and a cable cross machine. Behind said gym, the cool cacao forest is home to three cabinas, each with beds for four and shared baths. And finally, more private lodging is available for couples or individuals in Flō’s newest cabina, with each room containing a queen bunk and private bath.

It’s not just about the indoor living space though! Guests are encouraged to explore Flō’s expansive jungle trails, where they can play in SIX on-site waterfalls, a spacious river pool, and miles of winding rainforest paths. Plus, at just a quick 10-minute drive down the mountain (via 4x4 vehicle), Flō is only a quick stop from town, the many beaches of the South Pacific, and dozens of adventures, tours, and opportunities!
