For hundreds of years, globetrotters have understood that seeing new parts of the world is beneficial to the body, mind, and spirit. 

Seeing a new place and spending time immersed in another culture helps destress, change your perspective, experience wonder and joy, and create lasting memories with loved ones. There are many reasons to travel, both to the beautiful shores of Costa Rica, where our villas on the water offer respite and relaxation, as well as to other parts of the world. 

Read on to discover 7 benefits of traveling and how you can make the most of your next getaway. 

Travel is an Opportunity for Self Care

Even if you make time for self care in your daily routine at home, there’s something different about taking an extended time away to look inward, move your body, and pamper yourself the way you do on vacation in another place. Our Costa Rica villas on the water offer the perfect setting for ultimate relaxation so you can feel renewed and recharged. At Casa Teresa there are so many ways to pamper yourself, whether you are setting up a group yoga retreat or want to focus on massage and bodywork experiences, all in a luxurious, stunning setting along the water. 

Get to Know Different Cultures

Travel is a chance to immerse yourself in the culture of a place and to experience it firsthand,  shopping local boutiques and stores, visiting local cafes, and dining on locally grown foods. At Casa Teresa Luxury Villas you’ll have the opportunity to try local specialties like fresh caught seafood, local produce, and regional specialty cocktails, all of which can be prepared on site for you by our private chefs as a part of a 5 star meal experience. When you stay in Casa Teresa you can wander through the town in between beach trips and see its charm first hand, buy goods from local merchants, and get to know the textures of daily life in a Costa Rica beach town.
