Pura Vida!! Not sure where to start re: my trip. First and foremost, I would like to thank the owners of "Liquid Magic Surf Resort," Eugene and Caroline Mitchell. They could not have been more accommodating, positive, wonderful people if they tried.
I am a female traveler who went to Costa Rica to grieve the loss of my husband. I could not have picked a better place to stay. Their property is so naturally beautiful and therapeutic that I did not want to leave. Eugene practices the ancient healing art of "Shen" which helps you balance your energy and release all negative emotions. Caroline practices "Reiki" which is along the same lines. They have a very special healing room located in their spa. Massage was performed by an amazing massage therapist named "Cali," she has magic fingers. They all made me feel so special and it appeared that their main goal was to work as a team to help me heal.
The property itself is secluded in the middle of the rainforest. The sounds of parrots, birds, howler monkeys, frogs, and gentle breezes against the lush vegetation is heavenly. The property is Eco-friendly and made of all local woods, which are incredibly beautiful. Eugene designed and built all of this himself with the help of locals. They have a stream that feels like a quiet rush. It's a very short walk down the steps nature provided.
The cabina I stayed in was perfect and clean. Comfortable bed, nice Roman tub and shower. The bay window opens to the rainforest. It had a wrap around porch with comfortable outdoor furniture. I had my coffee there every morning, and read my books at night. The sounds of the rainforest helped me feel refreshed in the morning, and put me to sleep every night.
They have a beautiful pool with a waterfall. I found it very hard to leave the property.
The beautiful couple took me to an incredible beach to spread my husbands ashes at sunset. They also took me to a nice place for ceviche. They prepared food for me which was all organic and grown on their little slice of paradise.
I could go on for a few more days about my wonderful experience, but I think you get the picture. I highly recommend this resort to anyone and everyone. You can find them on FB as well with many pictures I have shared. If you want to experience the best, most relaxing trip of your life, I recommend the "Liquid Magic Surf Resort!!" I'm a world traveler and have stayed at 5 stars all over the world. I would trade this in for the Ritz any day. :)
