Maine Yoga Adventures is off to explore new territory in Costa Rica! Adventurers are heading to an awe-inspiring private home in the rainforest of Nuevo Arenal…
Nature is abundant in this peaceful place - the Costa Rican sunsets are gorgeous, like none other!
We’ll be soaking up all of the goodness for four blissful nights of yoga, nature immersions (finding a sloth or two!), excursions, rainforest rambling, stargazing, birding (toucans visit the house), delicious vegetarian food, playing in the pool and more!
Rachel Hicks, our cook from Virginia, will work her adventure magic in the kitchen again. Rachel comes to MYA with a vibrant passion for the outdoors, sustainability, food, and wellness. A yoga teacher with a masters in nutrition, Rachel has led retreats and workshops in her wheelhouse of health and well-being.
Our home, is going to be unbelievable! Located in the rainforest rather than a gated community, surrounded by nature, a 500 hundred acre preserve to the east and thousand acres of protected rainforest encompassing Tenorio National park to the North and West. A spot of peace and privacy with access to amazing excursions both in the forest and on the lake.
The entire property is a showcase of Costa Rican art, decorative tile, stone and craft work. Six beautifully appointed bedrooms featuring artwork, hand carved beds and doors with bathrooms en suite, and two decorative fireplaces are all for MYA. The master suite bathroom features a hot tub built for two (Holly promises to share!). There’s a chef’s kitchen, library/living room area, dining area, and a unique indoor pool with jacuzzi. We can play billiards and ping pong - lounging areas, an inversion table, and a massage table are also at our disposal.
Lake Arenal has so much to offer adventurers - windsurfing, canopy tours, boat tours, jungle hiking trails, kite surfing, horseback riding, kayaking, swimming in an extinct volcanic crater, spelunking and more. We can decide as a group our fav excursions, definitely hanging bridges and hot springs, and still have the option to simply relax and enjoy the tranquility and majesty of your surroundings.
To help the Costa Rican National Park system finance education, outreach and protection, the manager of our home devotes 50% of each commission gained through sales of adventure tours towards the park. With the benefit of access to individuals in the tour system that make it all work - tribal leaders, guides, and park directors; MYA will take advantage of a couple tours for sure!
