Playa Hermosa, Costa Rica- 2014
Having Costa Rica on my bucket list for years, I was so enthused to hear of Coach Chris Campbell’s trip there this spring! From the time we arrived in the San Jose airport, to the time we regrettably left this paradise, I felt like a kid at camp!
The transportation, activities, accommodations and schedule were all planned with enough structure to make full use of our time, yet with enough flexibility to make changes when wanted or needed. We had “off” time to pursue our own dining and recreational time, but found ourselves “hanging” together as the group was as fun as the action-packed itinerary!
From our arrival hike to watch the sunset from an off-the-beaten track overlook to the closing day sunrise beach run and yoga stretch, we were constantly in motion—working out on the beach, paddle boarding, zip lining, ATV riding, taking surfing lessons, hiking—and if you wanted, doing more crazy things like jumping into a waterfall pond in the forest, bungee jumping into a huge ravine, body surfing on the gorgeous black sand beaches of Playa Hermosa—it was all just a gorgeous backdrop for action and for enjoying the benefit of being physically fit.
The local life in Jaco and Playa Hermosa was great fun too—wonderful local healthy food, fresh fruits—and yes, refreshing cold Cervesas after a sweaty day of adventure sports! I even got to schedule a Reiki session from a local therapist through our fabulous host and hostess, Christina and Mike at The Surf Inn. This beachfront boutique hotel had lovely rooms, a private beach, a pool, a gorgeous view from the rooftop breakfast nook and indoor yoga studio—all lovingly designed and built by the owners and local craftsmen. It was a little slice of heaven.
Looking for the perfect place to get away and get to spend some time exploring your own inner kid and adventurer? An Eco X-FIT trip with Coach Chris may be your ticket for a REAL vacation—and a bargain at that! And did I mention FUN?! Let me say it again—it was just plain FUN!
Costa Rica/ South Florida- 2014
PURA VIDA! I had the best time traveling to Costa Rica with Coach Chris and the Eco X Fit crew! I experienced things I could never imagine from Zip Lining in the rain forest to actually riding my first wave on a surf board. I had such an amazing time I plan on going back again with Coach Chris.
I've also participated in a number of the SUP events in South Florida with Eco X Fit. I can say that not only are the people in the group very friendly and welcoming, but we all have a great time and it doesn't matter if you're an expert on the board or it's your first time SUPing. If you want to experience a fun and challenging adventure, come join us at the next Eco X Fit excursion!
