3 Reasons to Travel with Jenn Glysson
Jenn believes taking care of your body enhances confidence and strength from the inside out and helps you turn "I can't" into "I can." As a trainer, fitness expert and owner of The Body Los Angeles, she's all about the importance of working out and having fun. She’s spent ten years toning Tinseltown, now we're honored to train with her in Costa Rica.
When you train with Jenn, it’s easy to tell she’s all in. She exudes energy and strength, compassion and relentless optimism, always keeping the focus on helping you with genuine passion.
She's Got Badass Skills
Jenn’s been an athlete all her life. She draws on her past in Division One basketball and HIIT workouts to create innovative training methods. Jenn is not your average trainer.
She Believes in You
Jenn created The Body Los Angeles to customize the training experience for each and every client, because every body is unique. “I love to see people grow,” she says, “I think of them as athletes in training.”
Day by Day
Costa Rica’s DNA is defined by nature. We’ll see why on every step of this empowering adventure: zip-lining through the jungle, splashing down canyon rivers, biking to lost waterfalls, lazing on the Pacific’s finest sun-kissed beaches.
Day 1 | June 25
Bienvenidos! We meet Jenn and our fellow adventurers in Liberia in the tropical northwestern corner of the country. We’re spending the next six days exploring canyons, jungles and beaches in Guanacaste province, named for the country’s national tree, so loved for its wide branches that offer shade. We’ll go in and out of the sun, as well as settle into Rio Perdido, a perfect base above two canyons for the next few days of testing our limits, and toast our journey with a sprawling feast.
Day 2 | June 26
Birdsongs buzz as we wake for our first morning of all-out adventure. To kick things off, Jenn gets our hearts pumping with a workout. After a hearty breakfast, we criss-cross over the rugged Rio Blanco canyon via a breathtaking series of zip lines and “Tarzan swings” over a brilliant blue river below us.
We’ll swap tales with our fellow adventurers over a delicious local lunch, then follow with a thrilling splash by tubing down the white-water rapids of Rio Perdido’s shadowy canyon. Relaxation earned, we return to the hotel, for a dinner celebration, and a cocktail or two as the jungle nightlife stirs to life around us.
Day 3 | June 27
We continue our embrace of Costa Rica’s wild side today. After breakfast, we get on mountain bikes to tackle Rio Perdido’s acclaimed network of single-track trails. Along the way, we stop to peek into caves, feel the spray of jungle waterfalls, or just look over the jungle panoramas, and then finish by rewarding our efforts with a refreshing dip in thermal hot springs fed from deep subterranean springs.
We lunch at the hotel, and spend the afternoon on our own, perhaps taking a short hike to a waterfall, relaxing in the spa or just kicking back at the pool.
Day 4 | June 28
We leave our canyon perch today, alas, but have an unforgettable day on our way to one of Costa Rica’s great beach secrets. After a fun morning workout, we eat breakfast and then head out on a hike. Santa Rosa National Park is home to some of the world’s last remaining tropical dry forest. It’s also home to tons of critters too, including three monkey species we’ll likely spot goofing off in the branches above.
We break for lunch at a local Liberian favorite, then reach our next enviable home base, a hotel facing the sun-kissed gold sands of Playa Hermosa. As the sun glows on the beach, we’ll meet for a banquet of fresh seafood caught that day in the Pacific offshore.
Day 5 | June 29
The waves of one of Costa Rica’s great beaches call out in the morning. We greet them, as Jenn leads us on a morning workout, then we sip fresh juices and local coffee over a big breakfast. The rest of the morning is yours, and as active as you want it to be: kick back at the pool, kayak the waves, swim or sunbathe on the sand (or all of the above).
We group in the afternoon for the grand finale: a private catamaran ride! As we drift on a sunset sail through Pacific’s blue waters, we’ll have a toast together as the sky above pinkens, purples and finally dims into a star-filled night.
Day 6 | June 30
Alas, all great things come to an end. We rise for a final breakfast, pack our belongings (and new memories) and say adios to our newly bonded adventure-soulmates. Goodbye Costa Rica, hasta luego!
Rio Perdido HotelRio Perdido
The namesake river is “lost” below towering jungle canopy in the bottom of twisting serpentine canyons, both of them, that look outside the window of your spacious modern bungalow of this environmentally conscious hotel. Elevated walkways minimize impact, leading you to a perfect pool and more hiking trails to reach mineral springs.
Hotel Bosque del MarPlaya Hermosa
A sense of tropics seeps into modern rooms of this dreamy eco-hotel, where lush forest presses against your window. The pool bar is a great place to have a rum-spiked drink, or while lazing in a hammock in the gardens. The beach, of course, calls too. Steps away, you’ll step onto the wide, arcing expanse of perfect gold sand, one of Costa Rica’s best-kept spots for sun and splash.
