Vacations are all about making time for yourself. Whether you’re just looking for a quiet moment out of a busy day of surfing or hiking or looking for a new inspiring spot for your daily meditation practice, we’ve got some great suggestions:
Playa Tamarindo at first light
Set your intention for the day embraced by the sound of gentle waves and birds in the trees. With sunrise at around 6am in Tamarindo, this is the perfect time to head to the beach where it’s not too hot and guaranteed you will be able to find a tranquil spot to calm your mind. Bring a comfortable throw or blanket and some water.
The Llanos de Cortez Waterfall is under a two-hour drive from Tamarindo and well worth the trip in our opinion. Considered to be one of Costa Rica’s most stunning waterfalls, it’s a beautiful oasis in amongst tropical forest. Find a spot in the cooling water or explore the surrounding greenery to find your own place of serenity. The entrance fee to enter the park also goes to the local community too. Book the Waterfall Meditation Tour through the hotel for a morning or afternoon trip.
Head for heights
Head for the hills if you want a truly secluded spot. Only a ten-minute walk from the hotel, is one of Tamarindo’s best kept secrets and best views. Off the main road, follow the track to a spectacular look out point over Tamarindo town and Playa Langosta. With only birds for company, clear your mind at the beginning or end of the day with an impressive view.
