Costa Rica


Travelers seeking to optimize their well-being have favored Costa Rica long before wellness travel was a thing. With its breathtaking beaches, lush rainforests and majestic volcanos, Costa Rica became the destination for eco- and adventure tourism in the 1980s. The biodiversity here is unmatched, with roughly one-quarter of its area made up of protected jungle teeming with wildlife. Whether you opt for an oceanside yoga and surf retreat, trek into the enchanting forest for a hike and zip-line tour or sink deep into a hot spring and follow it up with a mud bath, you’ll come away with a deep appreciation for the Pura Vida lifestyle experienced only in Costa Rica.
