Why wait for summer when your summer body is already bikini-ready? Champion gymnast, Nastia Liukin is done sitting around for the upcoming sunny season and took to Instagram this week to show off her always-toned physique in a red two-piece bikini. 

“It’s (unofficially) summer in texas,” she wrote in the caption of a photo posing poolside clearly eagerly awaiting summer, adding that she was already missing her recent getaway with beau Ben to Costa Rica last month.

Nastia’s Costa Rican Escape

It appears Liukin, 32, kicked off “unofficial summer” from April during her baecation with Ben.

For the first phase of their trip, the two stayed at the Hacienda AltaGracia, an Auberge resort in Costa Rica, which the former gymnast said was “potentially too gorgeous for words”. The second leg saw Nastia and Ben at the exquisite Casa Chameleon at Las Catalinas. 

Basking in the best of both worlds (relaxation x adventure), the couple was spotted horseback riding in the picturesque mountains and taking a dip by a hidden waterfall in the lush forest.

It was also the perfect occasion for the Olympic champion to show off several pre-summer, sizzling bikini looks. Her IG followers caught glimpses of this cute all-white bikini and shirt ensemble paired with a camel cowboy hat.

'Jungle Nastia'

In another swimsuit shot, “jungle nastia has entered the group chat” she wrote in the caption of this post rocking a multicolored floral bikini. Between taking in the sights of the tropical haven, the gymnast stopped for a quick selfie video to give fans even more angles - swipe.

In more updates from her Costa Rican escape, Nastia heated up her Instagram timeline in this red strappy two-piece, which she paired with an oversize beach hat. She gave fans several poses lounging by an inviting infinity pool overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

Topless Views 

“Will never be over these views,” Liukin wrote in this risqué IG share posing topless while rocking a high-waist purple pinstripe bikini bottom. Joining more than 12k of Nastia’s fans that Liked this post, boyfriend Ben was also pretty intrigued by this view – “🔥😍🔥❤️🔥”, he commented on the photo.

Nastia journaled her Costa Rican getaway with Ben on her blog site, sharing parts 1 and 2, to highlight their many excursions and adventures while touring the country. She shared several photos and even her entire itinerary, which included exotic relaxation therapies like a “crystal healing through a 60-minute immersive experience” and river baths along with little R&R yoga and Pilates plus so much more.
