I was a solo traveller, and I wanted a peaceful retreat where I can practise yoga, zip line and hike.
I did a fair bit of research as to where I should go in Costa Rica and opted for Montezuma and Anamaya solely on the reviews on trip advisor, the fact that I was a solo person, safety and from the Anamaya website.
Trust me-the pics you see on the Anamaya website looks exactly like that in person. I took a flight on SansAir from SJO to Tambor, and then the hotel arranged for a pick up at Tambor for a 25 minute drive to Anamaya. Alternatively you can take Nature Air to Tambor, but you have to take a bus from SJO main airport to a smaller airport.
Upon arrival at Anamaya you immediately feel at ease - the view of the forest and the bordering Pacific is simply breathtaking - I was immediately at peace and vacation mode - so much so that I lost track of time and forgot what day I was on.
The staff are lovely - they catered to us, and the food was all fresh and organic and soooo tasty! Trust me - you've never had dessert this good - vegan, dairy-free and tasty.
The yoga was good especially with the view from the yoga deck, and at the back of Anamaya are waterfalls, and the zip lining tours is only about a 7 minute walk. The trip to town is a bit tricky - it's downhill and it takes about 20 minutes - if it rains forget about it - just stay in. But the walk is good exercise, and the restaurants in town are good - they are also focussed on healthy cooking, vegan food, yoga and zumba!
If you do decide to go - look no further - Anamaya is the place to be!
