FIT's signature program takes place in stunning Costa Rica: Between two continents and two seas, Costa Rica contains an astonishing diversity and abundance of tropical flora and fauna.  Caribbean and Pacific beaches border a land filled with white water rivers, waterfalls, tropical rain forests, active volcanoes, mountain cloud forests, and exotic wildlife.  The program’s miles of spectacular hiking through untouched natural beauty, white water rafting through pristine waterways and zip lining down volcanic mountain slopes - Costa Rica will be an adventure like no other on earth!

The Volcano & Rainforest Spa Resort: Our program is based at the Los Lagos Eco-Resort & Spa located on the rain forested slopes of the famous Arenal Volcano.   The resort has been designed so that each room has a complete panoramic view of the volcano. Our adventures and hiking are located right outside its front doors surrounded by old growth rainforests teaming with wildlife.  What makes our spa resort so special are the natural hot spring pools onsite each situated around stunning landscaped gardens all with views of the volcano.  These natural hot springs receive their water supply directly from pristine rainforest springs strategically placed to receive the continuous flow of hot fresh water, full of healthy minerals from the Arenal Volcano’s underground heat source.  After an intense and active tour day relax in these natural hot springs and enjoy additional health and beauty options at the extensive on-site spa. 

All health & training programs will take place at our own private health center complete with beautiful panoramic views of the volcano and surround rainforest. 

Los Lagos is the perfect match between nature and comfort!
