Fun & Adventure, Family & Community


TwoCan Retreats is all about fun and adventure, family and community, reaching out, showing up, honoring that we are stronger together, and reaping the rewards that flow from there.

For us it’s all about connection and gratitude. We believe that connection to each other, our community and our environment — and being grateful for all of it — is the key to lifelong happiness and sustainability.

In keeping with this philosophy, at TwoCan Retreats our mission is to organize a variety of themed group retreats that enable our guests to share unique experiences and build connections with friends old and new, explore new places and enjoy incredible adventures in a wide range of interest areas, all while giving back and creating memories that last a lifetime. 

We are grateful to be able to participate in these adventures, to travel with friends and family, meet interesting people, experience different cultures, customs and foods, and contribute in ways that directly impact the communities we visit.

We love Costa Rica — the country, its people and their way of life, known as Pura Vida (“pure life”). Costa Ricans (Ticos) are happier and healthier than many other cultures because they appreciate the simple things in life, they don’t stress over the small stuff and they are grateful for what they have. We think Costa Rica is the perfect place to pause, take a breath, restore and connect, and we think you will too.

Sharing these experiences with someone else makes it so much more fun! This is the concept behind TwoCan Retreats. You, me, us, them. We’re all so much better together. Bring your special someone to Costa Rica and experience Pura Vida for yourselves!

Giving Back: Making a Community Connection

TwoCan Retreats believes in giving back to the community. Because of this, we make it a point to support Costa Rican businesses and their families by using locally grown foods prepared by local chefs, and all goods and services are supplied by local purveyors and vendors.

We know when we contribute in ways both big and small, we build connections that make our lives richer and fuller. Giving gifts usually makes us feel good. Doing something to help someone makes us feel even better. At TwoCan Retreats, we do both.

TwoCan Retreats provides at least one service opportunity during every group retreat. These are optional participation, of course, but whether or not you join the activity, rest assured, you are contributing. TwoCan Retreats also donates a portion of its proceeds to local causes and nonprofits that directly impact the community, its wildlife, and the environment.

Your Hosts

Partners in love, work and play, Mike & Stacy McCrory, long-time residents of Santa Barbara, California, have 25 years of experience in fun and adventure. Mike has spent several years in the hospitality industry – his number one goal is to make sure you have the time of your life on your vacation. And Stacy, a licensed marriage and family therapist in private practice for the past 15 years, is the ultimate hostess. When you’re happy, she’s happy. They are on-site, always at the ready, making sure you have what you need, when you need it.

Together, they’ve raised four beautiful kids. They adore their family, friends and community, love to travel, play and eat good food. They especially love Costa Rica and can’t wait to share it with you!
