Take Girls' Trip To This Jungle Retreat

Costa Rica's Boutique Wellness Destination Nalu Nosara Awaits With Luxury

Demanding jobs and long hours, working for the weekend and saving for vacations a couple times a year — it’s a grind many know all too well. That’s the same story for Domel and Mariya Libid, a couple from NYC who at one time only dreamt of calling Costa Rica home. After having their first child in New York, the couple didn’t have the quality time they wanted to spend as new parents, due to grueling work schedules. So the couple decided to take the big leap once their second child was born. After years of repeat visits to Nosara to escape to warm water surf and yoga classes in the jungle, the visits were getting longer and longer, and they eventually decided they were never moving back to New York. They returned to their home state only to sell all of their belongings, stateside. 

Five years, later, the Libids today own Nalu Nosara — a boutique hotel/villas and an oasis amid the beautiful beaches, lush forests, ample wildlife, and vibrant culture of Costa Rica. Nosara is a stunning area, located on the Northern coast of Costa Rica's Nicoya Peninsula. Located in the heart of Guiones, Nalu is walkable to surfing, shopping and dining options, and an excellent spot for a fun-filled girls' trip, relaxing couples' retreat, or refreshing solo wellness escape.

Open since the end of 2016, Nalu is the perfect destination for a solo wellness escape, romantic couples getaway, or a luxurious ladies retreat. The owners worked with world-renowned architect Benjamin Garcia Saxe to design gorgeous suites, villas and fitness studio from the ground up. The fitness studio offers yoga and kickboxing classes to the public. There’s a spa on-site offering relaxation in the form of therapeutic bodywork, physical therapy and chiropractic. The latest additions to Nalu are the exclusive luxury villas, which each come with their own private saltwater pool and stellar surf break ocean views. The beach is also just a short walk away. 

The word "nalu" translates to "wave" or "to go with the flow" in Hawaiian, and in Costa Rica, the phrase "pura vida" is a common one, meaning to have "eternal optimism" or "just go with the flow" — and that’s the motto for the Libid family. "It’s exactly how we strive to live our lives."
