Costa Rica is a country in Central America, bordered by Nicaragua, the Caribbean Sea, Panama, the Pacific Ocean, and Ecuador. It has a population of about 5 million with around 500,000 people living in San José, the capital of the country and largest city.
In the last ten years, Costa Rica has intensified its focus on ecotourism, thereby diversifying its economy. The country increasingly has become a hotspot for all sorts of events, trainings, and the like in the alternative and complementary health sphere, including a growing offering of Thai Yoga Massage courses.
It’s hard to offer a consistent overview of the Thai Massage training offerings in Costa Rica because many courses are offered as punctual events, and are not from local Bodywork or (Thai) Massage schools. Anyway, we’ve given it a try and listed those schools (both from Costa Rica and abroad, the latter notably from the USA) that have been offering training regularly in past years.
