Tips for Planning the Perfect, Relaxing Vacation


Planning the perfect, relaxing vacation takes time and some serious thought. You want to map out all of the details, ahead of time, so that upon your arrival, all you have to do is relax and enjoy. Keep the following tips in mind when planning your ideal vacation:

  •  Choose a destination that is conducive to relaxation – If you place yourself smack dab in the middle of a busy city, you will be less likely to have a relaxing visit. Instead, choose a location like Ylang Ylang – nestled in the natural surroundings of Costa Rica, secluded and private, with a variety of relaxing activities.
  • Plan your activities accordingly – Choose activities that will keep you in a relaxed, calm state of mind. For instance, skydiving, while exciting and fun, is an adrenaline rush – you are not going to be calm and relaxed after falling from the sky. Here at the Ylang Ylang resort, you can enjoy a day at the spa or a relaxing yoga session on the beach.
  • Accommodations are part of the deal – Choose a resort that offers soothing accommodations — perfect for rest and relaxation. We offer a variety of accommodations, including luxury suites and bungalows.

Consider Yoga in Costa Rica

If you’re planning a trip to Costa Rica, you’re probably planning on fine dining, crystal-clear waters, white-sand beaches, and other typical vacation benefits. One particular item of interest that you may be overlooking, to add to the overall relaxing tone of your trip, is yoga.

Great place for Yoga

Costa Rica is a great place to practice yoga. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned professional, there is just something special about Costa Rica, when it comes to healing the mind, body, and spirit.

Yoga in Costa Rica is easy when you visit the Ylang Ylang Beach Resort. We offer various yoga classes 7-days a week, as well as seasonal packages and even yoga retreats. We have our own yoga studio that features breathtaking ocean views, and you can even opt for classes directly on the beach.

Practicing Yoga in front of rushing waves

There is no better way to bring your mind, body, and spirit together as one, than by practicing yoga in front of the rushing waves of the endless ocean – it is a truly magical and spiritual experience: one you’ll always remember. You may find yourself transported back to the Costa Rican beach as you continue your yoga practice at home.

Enjoy a Relaxing Vacation at the Ylang Ylang

A Spa Day to Always Remember

Coconut is an effective moisturizing agent that helps with dry skin.

The popular wonder-fruit papaya is also used to help slow the effects of aging.

We also use volcanic clay in some treatments, as it helps replace lost minerals as well as remove any toxic impurities. (We also like it because volcanic clay reminds us that Costa Rica is not just a land of lush beauty, it’s a land of power and excitement!)

Plan a Relaxing Vacation Just for You

Taking a relaxing vacation may seem like a far-off dream, right about now. After all, it is the holiday season, and you are probably swamped with shopping, cooking, and entertaining guests. However, what better time to plan your next vacation than right now? It will give you something to look forward to after the stress of the holidays. Here are some vacation planning tips to get you started!

  • Avoid spur-of-the-moment trips. Instead, take the time to plan out the details. You are much more likely to find money-saving packages by planning ahead.
  • Choose a destination that is going to leave you relaxed and refreshed. This is your vacation – the last thing you want to do is spend it running around in a frenzy! Instead, choose a place where you can focus on YOU for a change, such as the Ylang Ylang!
  • Do some research about your chosen destination to find out what events are on the schedule. You might find an event that you just do not want to miss, which can be helpful in mapping out the timeframe for your getaway.
  • Make your after-the-holidays vacation a time for you. You spent the holiday season doing for everyone else, so splurge on yourself this vacation – you can always take a family vacation later on in the year.
  • Try not to make a strict schedule for yourself. Leave plenty of time for spontaneity, including just resting and relaxing. You will go home feeling like a new person after a long, relaxing vacation.
