Basubu says

Whoever said you can’t have it all has never been to Costa Rica. Nestled in the lush tropical gardens of Guanacaste, this retreat takes relaxation to the next level with rejuvenating Hatha yoga classes, meditation sessions in nature and delicious vegetarian meals. Just a stone’s throw away from stunning beaches, yogis can settle into the soft shores or dive into mesmerising underwater worlds. Ziplining tours, catamaran sailing and volcano hikes are optional, but we count them as compulsory for an unforgettable trip.
