Save this for your travel plans!
I went to Costa Rica for a 6 week excursion. Below I’ll share my fav spots, foods, tips & snacks ;)
@soltarahealingcenter - did their 7 day retreat (4 Aya ceremonies). LOVED everything about it. Food, service, facilitators, experience, amenities, room, (check IGTV for more details)
After, I went straight down to Montezuma (thank you @iamtaylorsimpson for the planning help!)
I stayed at @anamayaresort & it was BEYOND gorgeous. Two incredible yoga decks looking over the water & the food x service was impeccable. V much considering hosting retreats there :) They also have private access to the waterfall.
I met a lovely local (@freedomseeeker) who showed me around Santa Teresa via motorbike! SUPER cute. Amazing shops & cafes. Big night life if you’re into that. I intend to go back & stay longer.
I then took a taxi boat to Jaco & made my way to Manual Antonio where I started my month stay with @selina. They have a co-live package where you get to use their co-working space.
Manual Antonio was a big time favorite. I love walking, especially hills, especially in 80+ degree weather. It’s the beach & jungle in one. National Forest right there. Monkeys & sloths.
@justpoiandme was a great @selina host.
Their views are bomb, food was so delish, they have kettlebells (you know I liked that :)), & pools are good good. Tico Salad & curry at @selina was the best & they have so many classes including pole fitness. Co-working there was beautiful.
Next, I snagged @shiningcrazydiamond from the airport & went Caribbean in Puerto Viejo.
Honestly didn’t lurrrvvv it. It was rainy, a lot. I’ve been sober since Feb so although
I love me some ganj, I wasn’t about the vibes. It felt very young, party town, & they didn’t have hummus :)
But in all honesty, PV really was great. I just liked MA more & I was also salty about the rain.
PV food was THE BEST. Fr fr fr. Please find & buy all cacao beans in all flavors.
Bicycles are handy. We went paddle boarding on the reef. Saw sloths way more than anywhere else. Shopping was AMAZE. Seriously got a whole new flowly summer wardrobe.
