Costa Rica has always attracted adventurous travelers who love the outdoors, high energy activities and of course, its wildlife. It is also attracting a new kind of vacationer. Those in search of wellness vacations. These are people who want to achieve something from their vacation in terms of body and soul. By this I mean yoga retreats, surf retreats, or both of the above including nutritional food diets or raw food diets and perhaps meditation.
These vacations are different from the normal package vacation as they work around increasing ones health and wellbeing as well as getting a tan and seeing what the local area has to offer in terms of the more traditional holiday tours.
These 3, 5 or 7 day packages include daily yoga practise and surf lessons, a well balanced diet introducing guests to raw food and a whole host of other activities including massages. It is a holistic experience that sends you back to New York, London or Toronto feeling rejuvenated and ready for anything. More that that, it puts you on a road to better physical and mental health and can give people a new hobby / passion for future wellness, surf retreats or yoga retreats in years to come.
There are several places that offer great wellness packages including Anamaya, Montezuma or Puravida based out of Tropical Latino in Santa Teresa and we are also now offering 3, 5 and 7 day wellness surf / yoga packages at Batik Villas too. Please email me for more information.
