I hope everyone is having beautiful week. We are finally seeing some sun in Vancouver, and temperatures are slightly on the rise. So I’m happy knowing that beach days are just around the corner. 🙂
I’ve been really excited to share some photos from one of my favourite days in Costa Rica. Irek, Amy, Carlo and I ventured out from the beautiful Four Seasons Hotel (full review coming soon) to a small rural area called Guanacaste. It was a 2.5 hour drive through fields and fields of lush greenery, rolling hills, and towering trees. The abundance of nature is truly spectacular.
We spent close to 8 hours at Sensoria (“The Land of Senses”) and saw so many animals… including a sloth! Sloths are actually super hard to spot too, because they only come down from their trees about once a week. Their metabolism is very slow, enabling them to sleep all day, and keep away from any danger. 🙂
We swam in two different natural pools, which felt so nice after hiking through the warm, humid jungle. This was probably the highlight of our day at Sensoria (if not the highlight of our entire trip!). The water was so refreshing; and our skin felt amazing afterwards too, because of all the vitamins and minerals in the water! It was blissful to say the least…
I also have to mention our amazing tour guide, Laurens, as he really made the day. He was so knowledgable about the rainforest and all of the vegetation, animals and insects that live together in harmony. It’s a beautiful thing. I really loved and appreciated his passion for nature, and his respect for Mother Earth. The people of Costa Rica truly do care for the planet and I couldn’t have felt more at home or more at peace than I did that day.
If you make it to Costa Rica, and are close enough to visit Sensoria, I highly recommend. It’s an experience you’ll never forget, and really gives you a feel for the natural beauty and wildness that makes Costa Rica so special.
Thanks so much for reading! Sending lots of love and good vibes your way. 🙂
The natural world around us shows the way to relief. All of life is maintained by the sun, by the air, by water, by the Earth and its resources. And to whom was the sun given? To everyone.
