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.

  • Social connection strengthens our immune function, helps us recover from disease faster and may even lengthen our life.
We designed Hacienda programs to allow for genuine connection and friendship building, while still giving you need the alone time you need to decompress, heal and reset your nervous system. 
So who says you need to escape alone to achieve true wellness? Join us this summer with three friends and you’ll each receive the gift of 15% off your stay. 😘
  • To do this weekend:
Take a few moments to sit still and calm your thoughts. 
Ask your body what it needs. 
Do that. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Listen to your body. 💕 It knows what’s up. (Image credit unknown, message us if you know the creator)
  • To all the mommas out there, may your Mother’s Day weekend be everything you deserve and more. No matter what your weekend looks like, we hope you take some time to celebrate yourself, all that you do, and how far you’ve come. 💕 
Psst... if you want to treat your mom (and/or yourself) this summer, nothing makes a better gift than being surrounded by nature, nourishing food, and amazing movement. At least that’s what we’ve heard 😉

  • Happy Sunday! Need healthy brunch ideas on this beautiful spring Sunday? Our keto pancakes here at the centre are still a fan favorite. 
They have only have 1 net carb per pancake and are fluffy and so satisfying. You can drizzle them with monk fruit maple syrup by Lakanto for the authentic taste! These are topped with lakanto maple syrup and a spoon full of almond butter. The recipe is easy: 4 eggs, 4 tablespoons coconut flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tblsp psyllium husk, 1 tblsp ground chia seeds, 1 tblsp vanilla, 2 cups unsweetened almond milk. Blend and make as regular pancakes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
