El Sabanero Eco-Lodge is quiet and beautiful, as it exists in harmony with nature. The chalets are built out of teak trees have grown in the area. The surrounding tropical gardens add indispensable privacy and peace to each unit, which features a private bathroom, air conditioning, fridge, safe, and a private porch equipped with rocking chairs. They also offer wireless internet connection, so you can bring your own laptop and stay connected.

The program will be a fusion of bodyweight training and yoga. The daily fitness routine will include a combination of dynamic body weight intervals and traditional yoga which are open to all levels. Fit Destinations have designed simple and safe intervals through only using your own bodyweight to help strengthen and tone your muscles, and as well as to test your cardio. While these intervals are meant to be challenging, all of the exercises can be modified, meaning you can go at whatever pace is more comfortable for you. The team will also incorporate a variety of yoga poses to address balance, flexibility, and mental focus; all of which are important elements to your overall physical well-being.

The pura vida experience would be incomplete without catching, at least, one sunset watching on the water, so the team organized a Catamaran cruise for the group to enjoy together which is part of the basic trip package.
