Ziplining, Yoga, Food!

Even though we surfed what felt like 20 hours/day, we also had time to do some other stuff that was pretty cool. Our day off was Wednesday, so we started with a nature walk and then did ziplining in the afternoon. I’ve been ziplining before, but this was the most incredible ziplining experience. The zipline tour is the longest in the world and it has the longest single zipline in North and Central America (I think!).

Jing and I were also pretty excited because we looked so cool in our outfits…

It was so fun and the views were unbeatable. Before our last zipline, we walked to a waterfall.

It was a great place to spend the afternoon. I highly recommend ziplining if you’re in Nosara!!

As a part of our retreat, we had yoga three times during the week. When there is a bigger group of surfers, Adilia brings a yoga teacher to the house, but because there were only two of us, we went to Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort for our classes and it was beautiful!

There’s an open air yoga studio, an open air aerial studio, a spin studio, and an enclosed area for yoga and other classes. Jing and I chose to go to restorative yoga, yoga for surfers, and a sound meditation. We loved all the classes and the resort is awesome…even just to walk around.

I know I’ve already written a bit about the food we had, but it deserves more photos. We ate so well while we were there. Food was also included in the retreat and our cook did such a great job! She made vegan food for me and there was always a lot to eat (yay!). I loved that lunch and dinner always included a giant salad. If I had someone to make me salad every day, I would be a better person eat more vegetables.

We were able to go out to dinner three times as well! Two of the dinners were included with the retreat and the other we covered ourselves. I loved the dinner we had at La Luna. It’s located on the beach and the setting is just beautiful.

That was the view from our table. Also, the singer/surfer Jack Johnson was sitting at the table to the right of us. No, I didn’t get a selfie with him because I’m not a total psycho.

I ordered the hummus platter and it was huge! Naturally, I ate the entire thing. I also told Jing and Adilia that I wouldn’t be sharing with them. I’m so nice.

I honestly can’t explain how much I enjoyed this trip. It was really the best present I could have given myself and I hope to go back again and again and again.
