"I was 47 years old, 5'4" and 188.4 pounds when I checked into the Jump Start Program, Costa Rica March 2012. I lost 23.4 pounds in 30 days. I can live with that!!"

TRAVELING TO COSTA RICA IS A BREEZE...
Getting here is easier than you think!
Fly into Liberia International Airport (LIR) from most major cities around the world. An air conditioned shuttle (pre-aqrranged through our office) will be waiting for you at the airport. The shuttle takes you through the Costa Rican countryside (about 1.5 hours) to your retreat destination in Playa Carrillo, Guanacaste, where the Birchcreek staff will be awaiting your arrival.
You may choose to rent a car and drive to your retreat. Check with your preferred rental company for availability at Liberia Airport.
A large number of our clients are women traveling solo and Costa Rica is a safe, friendly country.
Most Costa Ricans speak some English, and, along with Costa Rican currency (colones), the US dollar is accepted in almost all stores and venues. There are ATM machines making travel and finance easy and convenient.
Please be prepared to pay a $28 customs tax at the airport upon leaving Costa Rica.
Make sure your passport does not expire within three months of arriving in Costa Rica. If so, your local US post office can arrange a speedy renewal for you before your trip.
