Boxing Camp in Costa Rica:  Rumble at the Jungle
Source/Press Release
January 5, 2017

(JAN 5) Rumble In The Jungle is a boxing camp for people who want more than just a fitness class.  The next camp will take place on March 18, 2017, in Nosara, Costa Rica.  Our unique 8-day experience will reconnect you with yourself, what motivates you and gives you energy. It will enable you to:

Get in excellent physical shape;
Show you how far you can push yourself;
Reduce your body fat;
Develop inner strength;
Build confidence;
Embrace the challenge of stepping outside your comfort zone;
Learn the fundamentals of boxing.

Packages Include:

8 nights’ accommodation in the Enchanted Forest's tree houses and cabanas (screened rooms with fans) in the beautiful Costa Rican jungle. Daily breakfast supplied for self service breakfast. Lunch and dinner prepared using organic local ingredients prepared by one of our local chefs.  A 7-Day fitness challenge consisting of 4 hours of training a day.    One hand-and-stone therapeutic massage using organic coconut oil and warm stones to increase circulation to help heal old injuries.   Transfers to and from Liberia Airport to Guiones.
On the final day, an exploration of the area on Quad bikes and a cocktail evening (door charge and drinks at your own cost).


A plan for you to meet, and exceed your personal goals for the week.
A personal plan to kick-start your discipline, hone new skills and maintain them at home.  Training consists of an early-morning beach run, circuit training, injury prevention, boxing technique and sparring, and an optional exhibition fight.


We are situated in Playa Guinoes, one of three stunning beaches just west of the small town of Nosara. Nearby are coastal hills covered in trees full of mangoes, avocados, howler monkeys and a variety of birds, which slope down to meet a crescent of white sand and the rolling waves of the Pacific. Because the area is accessible only by dirt track, development is minimal, resulting in the perfect getaway location. Consistent surf and world-leading yoga retreats attract young and old, creating a relaxed vibe. Playa Garza, just to the south, is a laid-back fishing village, whilst Playa Pelada to the north features a more rugged, bolder coastline often filled with thousands of large oceanic birds. Further north, the volcanic black-sanded Playa Ostional is one of two nesting grounds for the Olive Ridley, the world's smallest sea turtle.


The purpose of this retreat is to push your boundaries and venture beyond your comfort zone. This applies to the accommodation, too. As well as the luxuries of the Villa you have the option of staying in the Tree Houses of the Enchanted Forest! When staying in the Tree Houses, you live in and with nature. That means waking with the howler monkeys at 5.30 a.m., showering in outdoor showers – although the region’s average temperature is 31 degrees C, so cold showers are a sweet relief! This environment strips you of your usual creature comforts and allows you to appreciate the basics of life. But don’t worry – you’ll be sleeping in a comfortable bed! We also have warm showers, mosquito nets and a sauna to make everything slightly more comfortable! Wi-Fi is also available.


Our resident chef uses locally sourced, protein-packed ingredients to ensure your full muscle repair and recovery. We source all our fresh fish directly from local fishermen, fruit from the trees around us, and organic meat from local farmers. Tea, coffee and breakfast foods will be provided each morning, but you’ll need to prepare them yourself!

Sample Itinerary:

We can’t give it all away, but here’s a taste of what you can expect when you come to Nosara:

Once you arrive in Costa Rica, home to the happiest people on the planet, you’ll meet one of the Rumble In The Jungle staff for a personal one-on-one to identify your goals for the week. On Day 2, you’ll wake up with the howler monkeys for a sunrise run along the beach, followed by breakfast at 7.30 a.m. Class begins at 9 a.m., after which you can enjoy a mid-morning fruit shake at 10:30 to regain some energy. You’ll then enjoy some free time until we meet again at 1 p.m. for a leisurely lunch followed by an afternoon of boxing technique training and light touch sparring. At sunset, around 5:30 p.m., you can participate in meditation on the beach. Each day is a little different – but always consistently challenging!

To relax after your journey, you can enjoy a swim at one of the world’s top-ten beaches!

Nicola, attendee of Boxing Camp in March 2016 said "The boxing retreat in Nosara was an exceptionally unique experience. When the opportunity came up to go to Costa Rica and sweat it out, surrounded by incredible tree house scenery with monkeys, sloths and exotic birds, I jumped at the chance. Nosara is a beautifully quiet surf town with a beach that is filled with more white sand than you could dream of and a Pacific Ocean with warming temperatures that make you want to never get out.


Playa Guinoes is one of Costa Rica’s leading surf beaches, providing both gentle, consistent waves for beginners and point breaks for more advanced surfers. The local surf schools offer lessons, surf hire and locals who have been surfing this coast for over 20 years; they canprovide a Surfari at extra cost. If you fancy an extra Yoga or Pilates class, you have several local options, including the Nosara Yoga Institute.

Not included:

Additional activities such as surf, zip lining or visits to the nature reserve.


Total Paid Upfront: $984.00

I found the blend of boxing sessions in the morning and early evening, combined with the opportunity to surf, or go quad biking or just laze about on the white sands of the magical beach, a magnificent mix. This is definitely a retreat with a difference. Not to mention the delicious home made food and fresh fruits and vegetables plucked from the trees in the local area. The boxing coaches are exceptional and cater to all levels which is a major bonus. This experience has it all. The yin wth the yang. There is nothing else like it out there. Oh and don't even get me started on Costa Rica. One of the most magical places with sunsets that will make your heart melt. If you are thinking twice about going then my advice is to take the leap of faith and step forward into one of the most sensational experiences of your life."

Our team:

Carina Crawford Khan, Co-Founder and Director of Evolution Me and Founder of Rumble In The Jungle.

Hi I'm Carina, I stumbled across the Enchanted Forest when I travelled to Costa Rica in 2014 for the surf! Having never tried boxing before, I discovered the immediate results it had on my physical and mental strength. Returning to London, I joined a gym and within a year I turned my life around. Applying the discipline of the boxing gym to my life - focusing on achieving in my work as a community organiser and being involved in opening a school, I said goodbye to my slightly wild, party-animal side.

Now that I've adopted the discipline of boxing, I train at least 4 times a week and have since joined an amateur club in Peckham, where I hope to have my first bout in October 2016. Boxing has enabled me to express myself, improve and utilise my strength and creativity. It has dramatically transformed my physique and overall strength and allowed me to develop Boxing Boot Camps which are inspiring others to do the same.

I can't wait to meet each of you and hear about your own personal development. I hold the Rumble in the Jungle Boxing Camp close to my heart and it's what I want to offer you and the rest of the world who might not have experienced this kind of journey of self discovery.
