SANTA TERESA, COSTA RICA

BEST FOR:

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Body and Soul - - TRAVEL -

Be­fore you book that yoga re­treat in Bali, check out the sprawl­ing forests and un­ri­valled coast­line of Costa Rica. The beach town of Santa Teresa has al­ready made a name for it­self as a yogi hub, so pen­cil in a vinyasa class un­der the trees be­fore hit­ting the surf and fu­elling up at an or­ganic cafe.

Un­wind in a beach­side villa at Flor­blanca ( flor­blanca.com) and prac­tise your back­bends in the open-air stu­dio. To pick up the pace, ask the ho­tel to or­gan­ise a horse­back ride through the jun­gle or test out the fa­mous zip lines.

Mix yoga with guided surf ses­sions on a Va­jra Sol Yoga re­treat (va­jra­soltravel.com). Per­fect for be­gin­ners, it book­ends each day with a lit­tle Savasana and leaves you plenty of free time to roam the gar­dens.
