Treat yourself to a slice of heaven on a beautiful Costa Rican beach! Pranamar is lovely with open air villas, soaking pools literally steps from most rooms, and the restaurant offers excellent, fresh, tasty, and healthful meals and amazing smoothies. The staff are very friendly and helpful, with good connections to the nearby communities. They can help you scout out some of the best hiking/birding/fishing/snorkeling/zip lining that is available. Beyond surfing, the yoga, offered daily, was some of the best I have ever done. NOt enough?? I heard howler monkeys calling in the early mornings and watched them swing through the trees! There were geckos and lizards all over and lots of birds to be identified. I met people who had really "chased their dreams" and made living in this stunning place a viable option.
