I stayed at Prana Rainforest Retreat this past August and it was as much an adventure as a luxurious relaxing getaway! The accommodations are located in the middle of the Manuel Antonio National Park, which means every morning when you wake up, you not only hear the sounds of the jungle, but actually see up close monkeys, sloths, gorgeous birds and more! I'd take a swim in the infinity pool every morning, come up for a breathe of air and get caught watching monkeys jumping from trees and gathering food - VERY COOL!
Every day we went on a new activity - hiking through the rainforest and nearbye waterfalls over bridges one day to lounging on a peaceful nearby beach the next. Also make sure you have them take you to white water raft down the mountain - so much fun!
The delicious meals that were served were all created based on our diet, likes and dislikes. We loved EVERYTHING prepared! In addition, the restaurants they recommended and took us to were phenomenal!
Make sure to do yoga and massage while you are there - there is a platform near a waterfall down from the Guest House where you can practice and get treatments.
The accommodation was stunning! A guest house with its own private pool, massive shower, comfortable bed and sitting area with a day bed all surrounded by windows facing the rainforest.
Overall, this would be the perfect escape for a couple who wants to be pampered and spend time together or a great getaway for a small group of friends!
