Imagine falling asleep to the sounds of the jungle, then waking up and drinking fresh, local coffee perched high on a mountaintop, above the clouds. Now imagine sipping wine or a fresh smoothie under the stars while listening to the waves crashing just a few hundred feet away and waking to an energizing yoga practice, that will leave you feeling invigorated, followed by a light, nutritious Ayurvedic breakfast. You can experience all of this and more on this 6 night Costa Rican getaway!
