Life can be stressful sometimes, which is why we all need a vacation every once in awhile. A beautiful beach can bring a sense of calm to just about anybody. The rhythmic slap of the waves hitting the shore, the warm sun melting away your worries, and the cool breeze caressing your skin – it’s everything that you could possibly want in a relaxing beach vacation. Of course, sometimes your body needs a little bit more to completely recover from contentious board meetings and horrific morning commutes. Every luxury vacation should include some time spent seriously pampering your body.
Massage the Stress Away
In real life, an hour massage is an expensive luxury reserved for birthdays and anniversaries. In Costa Rica, such a luxury can be a daily occurrence. Imagine waking up in the morning, sipping some scandalously delicious local coffee and snacking on the sweetest fresh fruits you have ever tasted. After lounging around for awhile on your patio overlooking the ocean, you hear a knock on the door.
Right on time, in walks your personal massage therapist. No need to go to a spa when he’ll come right to your door. You spend the next hour in heaven, your back and neck massaged so well that you feel like jello. You wonder if you can even muster the strength and willpower to sit up. He even managed to get out that horrible I-hate-my-boss knot at the base of your neck.
One of the best ways to make your luxury Costa Rica vacation even more luxurious is to arrange for a daily massage in your own room or villa. You owe it to yourself to pamper your body and get rid of all those ugly knots.
Find Your Center Again
One of the best ways to get rid of stress and keep your body lean and healthy is to do yoga daily. Today it seems like there is a yoga studio on every gentrified city corner. Yoga has become trendy. People spend hundreds of dollars on all of the clothing and gear so that they can look good in the down dog position. Men attend hot yoga classes to meet women. Gyms hold classes in sterile rooms with florescent lighting to boost their revenue. But this is not what yoga is all about.
In Costa Rica, yoga classes are held in Zen rooms with the sounds and smells of nature wafting through the air. No one cares what you look like or how flexible you are because the focus is on the self. A yoga class in Costa Rica is a place to find your center, not find a date.
If you really want to have a luxurious Costa Rica yoga experience, arrange to have a private instructor visit you every day in your own villa. This way you can truly focus on yourself and stretching the stress out. Your private instructor will give you the personalized attention you need to ensure that your form is perfect and that you get the most out of the session. Practice yoga every day of your Costa Rica vacation and you are sure to find your center.
Rejuvenate from the Outside In
Now, no luxury vacation would be complete without a few spa treatments. After melting your stress away with massages and finding your center with yoga sessions, make sure to pay a little attention to your appearance. Costa Rican spas offer great deals on luxurious wraps, facials, and scrubs that will leave your skin feeling soft and beautiful. And of course, one cannot forget to partake in two of the most fabulous spa treatments – manicures and pedicures. Foot and hand health is highly important, even if you don’t want the nail polish.
So indulge yourself. A luxury vacation in Costa Rica just would not be complete without pampering your body with daily massages, yoga sessions, and spa treatments.
