Did you ever wish you could push the pause button on your life? To take time to catch your breath, take in your surroundings, stop racing through every moment! From the second you arrive at Villa de Shira, you can take comfort in knowing you can genuinely adopt the pace of nature. Your alarm becomes the warm embrace of the sun rising and the sound of the monkeys calling and chattering to one another. You enjoy your breakfast on the terrace in the company of breathtaking panoramic views of the jungle and Pacific Ocean. You feel as if you could be the only person on the planet with unobstructed views reaching out to the horizon.

To take time to catch your breath, take in your surroundings, stop racing through every moment! From the second you arrive at Villa de Shira, you can take comfort in knowing you can genuinely adopt the pace of nature. Your alarm becomes the warm embrace of the sun rising and the sound of the monkeys calling and chattering to one another. You enjoy your breakfast on the terrace in the company of breathtaking panoramic views of the jungle and Pacific Ocean. You feel as if you could be the only person on the planet with unobstructed views reaching out to the horizon. You may spend your days savoring the serenity of Shira or may decide to venture out to discover more Costa Rican adventures, from Canopy tours or horseback riding in the wild, to surfing or relaxing on the beach. Your evening ends admiring the captivating sunsets that never cease to amaze, while enjoying a fresh made sushi dinner prepared onsite by Miho. Before you head indoors, peak up and witness the most incredible blanket of stars in a jet black sky. And by now you truly understand the meaning of 'Pura Vida'. 'Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the one less travelled by, and that has made all the difference' - Robert FrostMore
