You could sail to Penca Beach to get away from anything that is troubling your mind.

Culebra Bay

This would be the following bay to the North of Hermosa Bay if you are looking at a map and towards the South of the Papagayo Peninsula. It’s a great idea to visit the nearby beaches of the peninsula sailing across the Western Costa Rican coast line; Culebra Bay would be the first bay you come across and there’s plenty of amazing beach towns you can visit!
