Often, some of the sweetest moments at surf camp can be found during the quiet hours of the week when we’re not catching killer waves, chilling in a yoga class or chowing down on fresh made guacamole. That’s when it’s prime time to indulge at the hotel spa, where every Pura Vida Adventures guest is treated to a full body relaxation massage just steps from the ocean. Although this 60 minutes of bliss is included with every retreat, the spa offers much, much more for those looking to pamper themselves to the fullest.
From speciality massages to exotic wraps, exfoliations and scrubs, the Spa Natural at Hotel Tropico Latino has everything a surfer babe needs to unwind and feel totally radiant. Give some love to those shoulder and lower back muscles with a hot stone, Thai or deep tissue massage, surrounded by tropical jungle and the sound of crashing waves. The Surfers Muscle Relief package features a self-heating, sinus-clearing rosemary and mint oil sea salt scrub, followed by a one hour deep tissue massage with muscle-repair massage oil. Yes please!
Too much time in the sun? We told you to lather on that sunscreen and zinc! But hey, we understand all too well after our years at the beach, and we’ve got the answer for you. Head over to the spa and ask for the Deep Cool Moisturizing treatment, where you’ll be wrapped in very cool cucumber, aloe and lavender, followed by a fresh cucumber facial, reflexology and 45 minute healing vitamin E massage. Your skin will thank you, trust us.
The Bliss for Women package is the perfect combination of beauty and relaxation, a nice treat for anyone at surf camp. Kick back and enjoy a manicure and pedicure in our lush garden followed by a relaxing Tropical Facial. You’re all set for a wild night on the town or a nap beneath the palm trees. The choice is yours.
Before heading home, indulge in the Tropical Body Glow treatment designed to nourish and rejuvenate dry skin, giving you that happy vacation radiance all your friends will envy. This best-selling spa experience starts with a homemade sweet coconut scrub, followed by a warm papaya carrot and honey skin softening wrap. During your wrap, you’ll enjoy a honey facial mask followed by a 30 minute coconut lotion massage.
Other popular treatments available at the spa include Detoxifying Skin Therapy with natural clay, an Energizing Aromatherapy Sea Salt Scrub, and an Almond and Spice Exfoliation, plus reiki, acupuncture, energy and chakra balancing and more. Massages and facials can be booked for 30, 60 or 90 minutes.
While you’re on vacation here with us, a visit to our tranquil oceanfront spa is a must. The extensive menu of services focuses on using only 100 percent natural products found in Costa Rica and packages can be customized to your own personal needs. With all of these opportunities for pampering, it’s a wonder we even find time for surfing!
