There are many available activities and natural attractions that surround Asclepios.

Tours of San Jose or a food tour can be arranged. Guests can enjoy hiking or horseback riding on the wellness center property.
Asclepios sits on 12,500 acres of natural land that has primary and secondary forests where the flora and fauna have been preserved. The center, only covering 20000 square feet of the property, is built with sustainable materials. Solar collectors utilize the natural ventilation and natural lighting of the buildings. The wellness center has an organic farm and continues to reintroduce native plants and animals to the landscape and educate the community about environmental conservation.
The on-site restaurant serves vegetarian and non-vegetarian meals made with organic vegetables and fruits grown on the Asclepios property. All of the dishes include the salad bar. Breakfast is included in the nightly rate and many of the programs include three meals a day.
Very nice room. Arrived late at night and left early the next morning so didn't spend much time there. Looked like a beautiful property surrounded by farms. Very surprising given the drive there through some industrial looking neighborhoods.
