Recovery Places

Below you will find more information about 2 recovery retreats. We feel that each of these facilities are excellent, experienced in plastic surgery after-care and offer the patients a great deal for the money.

They are very different and different people will be attracted to each place. We’re happy to have these two wonderful places to recommend to people for their recovery. Below is a description of each place and you can choose which one appeals to you more and click to the easy form to fill out and click/send in to receive more information from the owners/operators of the retreats. They will contact you within 24 hours of receiving your form.

One quick important note about money and recovery retreats. When you book a room at any of the recovery retreats in Costa Rica, the policy is that you pay in advance for all the days you are booking and if you should decide to leave earlier than your booking checkout date, you will NOT get a refund on the unused days. Just like you wouldn't get back your rent money on an apartment if you decided to move out a week earlier than originally planned. In essence you are "renting" the room at the recovery retreat and the time you rent it for is yours and yours alone. You are free to leave earlier, but you still pay for those unused days. Sorry to be repetitive, but it's important that before you book and pay in advance for your recovery place, you know the policy about money.

PLEASE NOTE: As beautiful as the CHE TICA RANCH is, we have had to discontinue recommending them as a place to stay post op. The main reason is because it is located quite far away from Dr. Lev's office, the hospital and clinic. Unfortunately, over the last two years, the traffic in San Jose has gotten progressively worse. It can literally take up to an hour in each direction to take patients to and from Dr. Lev 's office for all post op care. We feel it's too stressful for patients who are just recently out of surgery to have to sit in an SUV in heavy traffic for what could easily amount to a two hour round-trip not counting the 30 minute appointment with Dr. Lev to remove stitches which he does incrementally over an 11 day period. That said, if you still would like to recover at Che Tica having been informed of the traffic situation, you are certainly most welcome to do so.
