In one instant you'll find yourself looking skyward up the barren face of an active volcano; in the next, you'll be ensconced in some of the lushest rainforest on the planet. With beaches that face both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans and fresh-water rivers that spill over rainbow-tinted waterfalls, Costa Rica represents the best of all worlds in one tiny country—and with an Escape to Panacea de la Montaña, an eco-friendly boutique yoga resort in the northern city of Guanacaste, you have the option of experiencing it all.

Bungalow-style cabins are at once luxurious and rustic, surrounded by native Guanacaste foliage and outfitted with amenities such as an indoor bathroom with a full shower, plus an outdoor shower for a quintessentially refreshing island feel. Ceiling fans, hand-crated wood furniture, a porch-side hammock, and bright, airy windows create the perfect environment from which to view sweeping panoramic mountain vistas.

Set your speed just the way you like it. Ease into your day with daily yoga and water exercise classes before hopping the resort's shuttle for Tamarindo beach to laze about on placid shores. Then, accelerate the thrills with a bevy of resort-facilitated activities: Take a sunset cruise or tour the wild-rich estuaries on a boat tour; dive into a surf lesson or a kayak tour across the breakers; or get a bird's-eye view of the country with a mountain hike or a not-to-be-missed zip-line canopy tour. There's even an opportunity to tour a local working ranch for culture buffs.

Back at the resort, reap the benefits of the countryside's extra-fertile fields with daily locally grown meals featuring the best of the area's produce. Add a dollop of Lizano sauce for an authentic Costa Rican flavor.

There's a saying wildly used in Costa Rica that can be applied to almost anything in the country—pura vida or "pure life." Once you Escape to this tropical paradise, you'll understand what it means to have truly lived.

  • "Active travelers can surf, hike, snorkel and spot wildlife for starters. The incredibly varied topography means you can cruise the cloud forest one day, visit an active volcano the next, and finish relaxing on a hot sandy beach."
