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!
