The Caribbean was our next stop. It’s probably one of our favorite areas in Costa Rica. In addition to the laid-back vibe, lots of local artisans and clear Caribbean waters, you’re bound to see a sloth up close if you just stop and look around. To Miles’ surprise, a mama sloth with a baby visited us at Hotel Atlantida where we were staying for a night. What a treat! We are excited to be holding our next two Yoga Holidays san teresa in Costa Rica at the Goddess Garden in Cahuita as our guests will get such an authentic flavor of Costa Rica on the Caribbean coast and no doubt see abundant wildlife.

Some yoga schools offer you a free trial. If they do make sure you take advantage of the offer. There is nothing wrong in making the rounds and trying out different free trial classes just to get a feel of the teacher and class. However, somewhere along the line, you will have to make a decision and choose a class. There is of course no reason why you can’t choose two different styles of yoga and commit to them.
OK so perhaps we don’t spend each week filled with such adventure, but if you’re thinking of visiting Costa Rica, you can expect a similar experience. You don’t even have to spend the whole week in the car like we did (perhaps we went a little overboard as the driving got a bit tiresome.) One of the greatest things about Costa Rica is that whichever resort you stay at, the beach is typically not far away, you’re always surrounded by wildlife and Mother Nature’s bounty, and numerous activities are made available to you. Pura Vida!
