The Best Part of Costa Rica…

Imagine floating in your very own private plunge pool filled with crystal blue water in the center of a Costa Rican rainforest. The long journey to Nayara Springs’ award – winning resort proved worthy from the very first welcome from the concierge staff. 

Upon arrival, we waited patiently for our villa while we warmed our bodies with a delicious welcome cup of tea. Suddenly, we are whisked away to our own private villa and we’re immediately pleased with what’s behind those doors.

We are given a complete tour beginning with a large living space equipped with a King Bed draping a white canopy. Next, we found a living room space with a beautiful chandelier hanging from the carefully designed wooden panel. The King Bed overlooks the breathe taking plunge pool landscaped with beautiful flowers, plants, and trees. 

As you head towards the bathroom, you are greeted with two vanity sink areas and placed in-between a large indoor and outdoor shower made for two. 

Breakfast was readily available every morning and chauffeured transportation was provided with just a push of button.

Nayara Springs offers 35 private villas that are 1500 square feet of pure luxury, romance and privacy. This adult only experience has many unique and exclusive features.

Hike to the top in the Rainforest of Costa Rica: Sharing this Journey

What drives GWQ’s founder Ciara to explore? Hmmm, It’s my endless desire to push boundaries, to explore the world unlike my grandparents, and to educate myself through different experiences with different cultures. With this in mind there was no other place to visit next than Costa Rica!

Costa Rica is known for it’s beautiful rainforest, exotic beaches and their amazing volcanic views. When asked, “What’s the best part of your Costa Rica experience?”, my response is sharing this adventure with my partner and friends who turned into FAMILY!

This was by far the most exciting part of the trip for me .My partner totally bailed out on this excursion, which was understandable, lol! At first I didn’t blame her for opting out,  I was totally nervous as well. I’m grateful I went because I proved to myself that sometimes the most challenging obstacles are also the most rewarding! This experience was refreshing.
