Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin is stunning in a skimpy bikini while enjoying a natural waterfall during her Costa Rica vacation. The 33-year-old former athlete has already made headlines for her jaw-dropping bikini handstand as she marked her presence in the Central American location, but there’s fresh content for her 1.1 million followers.

Posting mid-week, the Russian-born star shared how she’s been enjoying Costa Rice with a gorgeous snap showing her on natural rocks and amid fresh spray as she flaunted her Gold Medal body.

Nastia Liukin stuns in bikini from Costa Rica

In her opening photo, Nastia posed hiding her face as she sat amid wet rocks and backed by gushing white waterfall waters. The Volition partner drew attention to her super-slim and toned legs while in her navy blue bikini, also brandishing a chic cream hat shielding her from the sun.

With her abs on display and seemingly at peace amid nature, Nastia drove fans to swipe, where swish views showed her luxurious hotel digs at the Hacienda AltaGracia, Auberge Resorts. An outdoor gazebo was featured, with further photos including a greenery-filled breakfast view, plus the hotel’s fancy indoor pool.

Taking to her caption, Nastia wrote: “I could get used to this life.”

At the end of March, and before posting a bikini throwback as she asked fans for recommendations on what to do in Costa Rica, Liukin updated with a bike shorts selfie from her Dallas, TX home. Taking a moment to reflect on her week and to promote self-acceptance, she wrote:

“Some real talk: the last week or so I have felt completely uninspired – to create, to brainstorm, to share. Being the perfectionist I am, I first found myself feeling frustrated and annoyed, but then after thinking a lot about it and talking to a sweet girlfriend at lunch today, I realized I wasn’t alone at all. We all come across roadblocks in our lives and careers. I think the biggest thing I’ve learned is that it’s OK to pause and reflect inward.”

Nastia urged her followers to practice a little inward thinking, continuing:

“Ask yourself questions, and learn about yourself in turn. Shake! Take a walk. You’ll come back to yourself.”

Nastia Liukin’s legacy lives on

Liukin is, separately, also prepping for the annual Nastia Cup, now in its 13th year.

Nastia retired aged just 22 back in 2012 and has since branched into business via both her skincare line and APL footwear collab.
