If you are looking for the best of everything Costa Rica has to offer, Las Olas is the perfect place to stay or to start your journey! if i had to backpack through C.R again, which i will..i will definitely return to Las Olas for another unforgettable experience!
From the best waves, most amazing black sand beaches, gorgeous sunsets to which you practice the best yoga i have yet to practice in the last 5 years! Spiritual, challenging and at the same time nurturing practices done by the wonderful Alejandra are better than any massage you can get after your surf! (which is also available) The energetic days surfing with really awesome surf instructor Nelson. Balanced by relaxing and invigorating yoga practice.
The food at the beach front restaurant is the best in all of Costa Rica! I've traveled all over C.R and i love good food, but never tasted breakfast, lunch, dinner, smoothies...you name it! Las Olas has the best food hands down! ((they are also famous for their beach restaurant, as many locals come there to dine, which is also a good way to meet new friends))
The staff at Las Olas are PURA VIDA!! ;-)) So chill & friendly. They go the extra mile just to make your experience the best! in my 8 day stay there they went the extra mile at least 4 times for me!!! Thank you so much Nelson for driving me when you were actually off work!!
Thank you Jason & Cameron for making sure i get to EVERY Yoga class in the special remote locations offered as a courtesy by the wonderful Alejandra!
Dear Tex, i can't thank you enough for saving me from being late to the airport and missing my flight (even 3 weeks after i left Las Olas) YOU GUYS ROCK!
When you have natural beauty & down to earth atmosphere with the most wonderful people i have yet to find in my 30 day journey in Costa Rica, having the best food EVER, and being given the chance to do my thing, make friends with the amazing local people from all over the world, or have a planned day, or have it all! This Experience out rules any luxury hotel out there! having a travel agent mother, i have been to many luxury, all inclusive, prestigious resorts & hotels. But NOTHING, and i mean Nothing compares to the LIFE you get to experience @ LAS OLAS.
Gracias por todo!
