Our roots run deep, as deep as a decade. Every lap around the sun does wonders. More meaningful than the next. As a community we’ve grown. As a festival we continue to flourish. We look back with gratitude and relish in the revelry.
Looking ahead, the path is undefined, unknown. The air is heady. The greenery dense. Nature’s playground has become our jungle gym. But it is in this uncertainty that freedom lies. An openness to something new, something that’s been brewing inside. They say it takes 10 years to master a skill. But what good is a skill if it remains buried, unshared.
The stage is set. We’re ready to shine brighter than before. The time to unearth Envision has come. To share this secret spectacle with the world. To celebrate all that it is with old friends and welcome new faces home.
We’ll shout it from the treetops,
To let the world know,
The original jungle festival was born 10 years ago,
And it’s wild wild spirit is more alive now, than ever before.
It is our honor and privilege to welcome you to back to the sixth year at our home, Rancho La Merced, outside Uvita in Costa Rica, and our 10th Year of Envision Festival. Perfectly perched at the junction where the rainforest connects with pristine tropical beach, Rancho la Merced is everything that we could ask for and the true jewel of our invitation to Costa Rica. While just a short, two minute walk to the surf of Playa Hermosa, Rancho la Merced stands as a testament to the glory of Costa Rica’s untamed natural beauty presenting a jungle environment that can only exist here. As always, the real headliner for Envision will be awaiting you over the horizon, the beach being the favorite gathering place for each sunset of the event.
Envision takes place in the ‘Southern Zone’ of the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. A truly magical place where the rain forested mountains meet the warm pacific ocean. The zone exemplifies exotic paradise – boasting a wealth of adventure and exploration amidst verdant jungle and warm ocean waters. As the most biodiverse place on Earth, it literally buzzes with life. The people here are gracious and friendly, making it easy to get around, find what you need, and experience the local culture. Pura Vida!
We think long term. The 12 principles of permaculture are echoed throughout every undertaking at Envision. Before each decision is made, and before each shovel is dug into the Earth, we are dedicated to considering the future impact of our actions.
Strengthen your source connection. Envision supports you with a space where you can explore a deeper understanding of our common oneness with nature and each other.
Breathe, flow, and explore your freedom through physical expression. Our bodies are the vessels in this world that serve as the foundation from which we can discover our highest potential. Explore stages, spaces, and yoga shalas designed so you can completely let go and be wild in the natural environment of Envision. Release; The jungle is here to spot you.
Living is an art form. At Envision we curate a 360 degree immersive art environment that blends the edges of the canvas with the world around it.
We take sound sound seriously. The dance floor is our temple. With each stage a sculptural masterpiece and Funktion-One sound system sending chills through your body, we spend the entire year masterfully crafting an all-night jungle beach celebration you’ll never forget. Some sounds blast you away, while others will hug you closely. It’s crisp and holographic. Come prepared for a deep journey designed to invigorate all your senses.
You are apart of something bigger. Discover the community you always knew existed – brought together by all of our similarities, and transformed by all of our differences.
To care for others we must first take care of ourselves. Experience and explore mindful practices for food, activity, medicine, and more that will nourish a lifetime of joyous behaviors and self-care rituals.
Come as you are, leave as you want to be. We know our paths emerge from different directions, and we respect the stories and experiences that make us who we are now. No matter where we come from, or how our paths intertwine, we’re all about progressive inclusion.
Envision Festival and Rancho La Merced would like to thank you for helping to keep Envision a conscious and progressive gathering, by maintaining awareness throughout the event about your impact to this beautiful land on which Envision is held. Envision is a Leave No Trace event, and we therefore always leave the land in as good if not better condition than we found it.
We are always working hard to find ways to permanently support the community of Uvita that has received us in such an amazing way. Every year we do our best to improve the community and work together with the people of Uvita to help it reach its full potential.
