Staying in shape on vacation can be a challenge, especially with all the delicious and wonderful temptations Costa Rica has to offer. In our last article we highlighted the best adventures that Playa Santa Teresa has, which can be a good way to stay active while on vacation, however if you are looking for more of an intense exercise option our staff at Hotel Casa Chameleon can happily arrange a variety of options to help stay fit.Below are just a few choices guests have while staying at award-winning Hotel Casa Chameleon:
Yoga and/or Pilates is a great way to stay in shape while in Santa Teresa. The town offers a variety of styles and classes depending what you may be looking for. From Ashtanga, Vinyasa and Iyengar styles of yoga, there is something for all levels and types. Classes are offered throughout town on a daily basis at beautiful yoga shalas, some even beachfront so you can catch a sunset while doing your class! Alternatively, Hotel Casa Chameleon staff can arrange for private, or semi-private, yoga or mat Pilate’s classes to be held in the privacy of your own room.
One of the most tranquil ways to enjoy Mal Pais and stay in shape while visiting is to take advantage of the beautiful nature hikes we have surrounding us. There are a few popular hikes that are great ways to explore the areas. Ranging from short and sweet to longer and slightly more difficult, there is an option for everyone. Taking a day trip to the neighboring town of Montezuma is a great option for those looking to enjoy an easier hike to a wonderful waterfall. On the other hand if you are looking for a more challenging and longer hike, take a trip to Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve. Enjoy the long trails and explore the jungles of Costa Rica.
Stand Up Paddle (a.k.a. SUP) boarding is an exciting and great way to get some exercise in while visiting Playa Santa Teresa and Mal Pais. With the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean and breathtaking scenery, SUP excursions are the ideal activity for everyone looking to test their strength at sea! A perfect option for those who are perhaps not into surfing but still want to get out there and explore some of the best beaches in Costa Rica.
Typically one does not think of eating to stay in shape while on vacation, however at Casa Chameleon our Chef prepares some of the best, freshest and healthiest food options that the town of Mal Pais has to offer. Whether you have dietary restrictions or just want to enjoy your meals guilt-free, the Chef at Casa Chameleon can prepare a mouthwatering meal using local and fresh ingredients for you to indulge in without hesitation.
