You know that spring break is right around the corner. And what better way to spend Spring Break than by doing yoga with sloths and other animals.

Nayara Gardens in Costa Rica offers yoga with the animals this spring break.

The Nayara Gardens in Arenal Volcano National Park, Costa Rica, is a rainforest that is considered one of the best resorts according to Trip Advisor. Travel + Leisure ranks it as one of the very best resorts to visit in Central and South America.

You might wonder just what is so darned great about Nayara Gardens that you would want to spend your spring break going there. Well, for starters you can do yoga with animals in the rainforest. But if that somehow just isn’t good enough for you, it also features a full-service spa, three of Arenal’s top-rated restaurants, daily yoga, and a pool with a swim-up bar. So, yeah, basically it’s luxury.

Definitely the number one reason to visit Nayara Gardens, however, is the sloths. The loth reserve has over 15 of this totally adorable little snuggle-muffins. You can watch them hanging from the cecropia trees, which were specifically planted for sloth-sustainability (sloth-stainability?). So by visiting the gardens you also get to support those super-cute sloths.

If this all sounds like heaven to you then, yeah, it does to me too. I mean what could be better than chilling with some sloths then doing yoga in a yoga pavilion? Or walking the nature trail (remember, spending time in nature is one of the best things we can do for our health).

There’s also tons of fun for the adventure-seeker, including water rafting, canyoning, and zip-lining.  And all the while you’re surrounded by a bevy of super-cute critters.

If you’re wondering about the price, the starting rate is $351 (which, interestingly, is a number in numerology that means you are on path to connecting with your soul-mission).

Basically, what I’m trying to say is that there are a bunch of sloths currently dangling from trees waiting for you to go and do yoga with them. Why wait?
