“One of the first conditions of happiness is that the link between man and nature shall not be broken.”
Last week I was invited to capture some lifestyle photographs at the beautiful Gaia hotel. My assistant and fellow photographer, Gabriel Solis joined me on this adventure to help capture some of my amazing experiences.
Gaia Luxury Boutique Hotel and Reserve, located in Manuel Antonio Beach, Costa Rica, is a beautiful 5 star Eco-friendly resort. This amazing gem, is a truly luxurious tropical getaway, nestled in a spectacular exotic location. The Gaia Garden, was originally a center for the conservation and rehabilitation of wildlife endangered orchids. This enchanting space still serves as a haven for this precious plant species. This is where privileged guests get the opportunity to truly experience the beautiful sights, exotic sounds and exuberant nature that Costa Rica has to offer.
The Gaia Reserve is Costa Rica in it’s most pristine state. It is where different species have a secure future. Thanks to the commitment of the project created by the Gaia Hotel and Reserve, they have continued to develop in a way that preserves the land, while honoring this natural reserve for future generations.
I believe it’s important to work in harmony and respect with nature. I love collaborating with companies that have the same value and morals beliefs. Supporting businesses and brands that are in line with mine feel so good and is deeply rewarding.
I was pleasantly surprised that they also had a full vegan menu including vegan ice cream! I enjoyed some of my meals poolside and some at their beautiful overlook restaurant where I had the pleasure to watch the sunset every night.
I highly recommend gaia hotel for anyone venturing down to Costa Rica . An amazing experience . I can’t wait to finish editing this full set!
“As I walk with Beauty
As I walk, as I walk,
The universe is walking with me,
In beauty it walks before me,
In beauty it walks behind me,
In beauty it walks below me,
In beauty it walks above me,
Beauty is on every side.”
~Traditional Navajo Prayer
