NATURE IMMERSION

Nature immersion, the cure for central nervous system fatigue.

Anyone living in in the modern world (or anybody that owns a smart phone) is experiencing an over-stimulation of their central nervous system most of the time. Something is always demanding our attention, eventually leading to attention fatigue. At Hacienda del Sol we treat being in nature as a medicine for central nervous system (CNS) fatigue. Nothing quite defuses CNS overstimulation like being immersed in nature. The mechanisms with which with our central nervous system are activated can’t quite grasp the vast complexity of what surrounds you and they decide to take a little break. Observing the jungle from your cabina deck or staring far into the horizon during a glorious sunsets (don’t miss the daily sunset beach shuttle) are fantastic ways of doing this. So are our hikes and jumping into the ocean if you feel confident in your swimming skills.

If you want to take this nature immersion further, you can always sign up for extra tours and activities like horse back riding, snorkeling, canopy zip-lining, waterfall hiking, stand up paddle boarding, surfing, kayaking, to name a few of the outdoor activities available here.

  • One of the things we struggle with with the wellness industry, is that it calls us to be constantly seeking wellness outside ourselves. Don’t get us wrong, there are so many amazing experts, resources, and products out there, being lead by amazing people with great intentions. Still, this is our friendly reminder to start your wellness journey by going inward first. Check in with your body, your mind, your breath. How do you feel? What do you need? What makes sense for you? Then search out what you’re in need of. Getting lost in the sea of wellness products, info, and what everyone else is doing can be a slippery slope, because it doesn’t seem like it’s inherently wrong. It’s *healthy* right? 
But we believe the true path to wellness comes from connecting within, and doing what’s right for you, not what everyone else says!
At HDS, we help you make your own decisions about what works for you, and teach how to work with your own unique body, not against.
We’ve also been exploring new (and fun ways) to deliver a more personalized approach to wellness experiences, because there really is no one size fits all in wellness. So stay tuned, because some fun things are happening this fall 😘
  • This week was a big week here at @haciendadelsolcr 
Every year in wet season, hundreds of thousands of Olive Ridley sea turtles make their way out of the water and onto the beaches to each lay 80-100 eggs, before heading back to sea. While this most often happens at night, our guests were lucky to catch a few day-time turtles making their way onto some nearby beaches. Turtles born on these beaches are known for travelling as far as India, but always remember their home beach - their birth place, where the females return to, to lay their own eggs.
We can’t wait for these little turtle babies to start hatching! Which takes about 45-55 days depending on temperatures.
  • We fully endorse chasing waterfalls. (And we love taking you to some of our local hidden gems - so you can get a little extra TLC time, off the beaten path 💦)
  • Nature is the best medicine. With summer time hitting the northern hemisphere make sure your summer is spent watching more sunsets than Netflix. Go out for a walk. Get your bare feet on the ground. Breath in the fresh air. Notice the way the breeze moves through the trees. Get back to nature and embrace every moment this summer. Your body and mind will thank you 😘😘

  • Movement and exercise are a great way to recover from stress. But often, our high intensity, “no pain no gain” mentality when it comes to exercise actually puts your nervous system on higher alert than when you started - preventing your body from entering rest and digest mode, where you can fully recover. A great tip for using exercise to balance your body and mind: after exercising spend a few minutes sitting or lying down (savasana anyone?) and try to completely relax your body, and steady your breathing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
