Anamaya Resort, Costa Rica
Options abound in Costa Rica but in the north Anamaya Resort can’t be beaten. Reminiscent of a Balinese resort, this exotic holiday spot is just a stone’s throw from the town of Montezuma on the Nicoya Peninsula. Daily classes are usually Anusara yoga (a form of hatha) plus retreats focusing on yoga, circus skills, detox and meditation are met with a saltwater infinity pool, organic cuisine, fire dancing and trapeze acts. If you can’t afford the in-house retreats, don’t worry, you can also drop in for daily yoga classes in their gorgeous yoga pavillion.
