Nature immersion

Nature immersion, the cure for central nervous system fatigue.

Most people in the modern world (or anybody that owns a smart phone) has experienced an over-stimulation of their central nervous system. Something is always demanding their 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.

  • Have you ever noticed that you just feel better when your in nature? 🧐 Well... whether it’s new news to you or not... being in nature, or even viewing scenes of nature has been proven to reduces anger, fear, stress and increases pleasant feelings πŸ‘. Exposure to nature not only makes you feel better emotionally, it actually has been proven to reduce blood pressure, lower heart rate, lower muscle tension, and lower the production of stress hormones. Make an effort to reconnect with nature ❀️ and thank it for the gifts it gives us πŸ™

  • Best gift ever
I wanted to give myself a gift for my birthday. I knew it had to be related to my well-being and to #recharge my batteries to be at my best, I needed a jump-start to a new lifestyle.
Well, this is the best gift I could have given to myself, my stay at Hacienda. Such a blast, such a great experience. I came to nurture my body and #nourish my mind and I got much more than I could have ever expected....
Not only San Juanillo has all the possibly elements to achieve that, that absolutely EVERYONE I met at Hacienda played a big role on reconnecting with myself to a whole new level. I did the Ketogenic and Primal Fitness for two weeks. I couldn't be happier.
The owners, staff and bodywork therapists genuinely care about you, they put love in every detail. Classes with Ramiro were the best, food with Jazmine outstanding and massages with Tabata and Masha beyond excellent.
I absolutely felt at home and enjoyed connecting with the other guests. Some of them are now my forever friends. We totally bonded. I absolutely adore them and can't wait to see them back in New York.
It's been a learning experience in so many ways and I'm still learning. I'm excited for all new great things life has to offer. And this is just the beginning of my journey, I love every minute of it.
Pura Vida Maeee!
