It is our intention at Hacienda del Sol to be responsible local business owners and help our community in whatever way we can. As such, not only are we including our staff in the process of learning about edible gardens so that they too can experience the benefits of producing one’s own food, we have also started to hold classes for our local community on health issues such as preventing and managing diabetes through nutrition in order to provide them with the knowledge that they may not otherwise have.
An important part of our commitment to our guests is providing them with the freshest and healthiest food available. We are also mindful of the environmental costs associated with importing fruits and vegetables from San Jose (a 4-5 hour drive). And with this in mind, we have now started production on our very own edible garden. No chemicals will be used in the garden and therefore our food production will be 100% organic and natural.
Whale season is upon us in Costa Rica! While whales can be seen periodically throughout the year here along the Pacific Northwest Guanacaste coast, there is always an abundance to be seen during the months of August – September and November – December. During your wellness vacation at Hacienda del Sol, we can help you arrange a boat tour of our local waters in the hopes of seeing some of the amazing wildlife that lives in our tropical warm waters. Tours begin at Fisherman’s Beach in San Juanillo in either the morning or mid-afternoon. During the tour, you can choose to fish, snorkel or just look for sealife. Often times, you will see spotted dolphins, turtles and manta rays. And if you’re lucky, maybe you’ll even see humpback whales! We invite you to experience the natural world during your wellness retreat with us and incorporate the sense of wonder you will develop into your daily life after you return home.

This practice will cultivate inner and outer strength, fluidity, awareness and set our intentions for the day ahead. Just prior to sunset, we will again visit our mats, this time for a rejuvenating practice, where we will incorporate the use of different restorative poses, breathe work, and […]
