Walking up the hill to the Anamaya yoga resort in Montezuma, Costa Rica, where I spent last week, the view takes your breath away. Pacific Ocean on the right, jungle forest on the left. And the perfect way to enjoy it all: in a jacuzzi and infinity pool built into the cliff edge.
When I win the lottery, this is what my home is going to look like.
Our twice-daily yoga sessions were held on outdoor decks overlooking this magnificent view.
We awoke each morning to the sound of howler monkeys, who sometimes competed with the instructor's voice. When they weren't howling, they were snoozing (below). By the way, "howler" is misleading. They sound more like barking dogs with whooping cough. Sometimes, like a mac truck.
"Anamaya" is Sankskrit for "good health." The name fit my week-long experience perfectly.
