Since doing your Traditional Latino Herbalism certification last October, I’ve completed courses for my MA degree in materia medica and herbal pharmacy— but I still reflect on my experience at Hidden Garden as the most formative and the one which provided the greatest depth and learning for me.
HIDDEN GARDEN is located in the majestic rainforest behind the Caribbean beach town of Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica. It is home to a unique collection of plants that represent the ethnobotany of the area and a research library to promote the academic documentation of local wellness traditions.
We offer wellness services such as health counseling, therapeutic bodywork and botanical therapies, as well as educational activities such as Yoga, Medicine Garden Tour and Traditional Latino Medicine courses. The Hidden Garden provides individualized attention in a tranquil environment for you to make the best out of your transformational vacation.
