Wellness is an innovative concept. It is a new trend used to represent integral health in which the body, mind, spirit and soul are in harmony, producing a feeling of total well-being.
Any method or activity that improves physical, spiritual and emotional wellbeing is considered wellness. In fact, the Spanish translation of the word is: Bienestar.
Costa Rica is a perfect destination to connect with nature and release stress in our daily life. Walking in the green forests of Costa Rica, breathing fresh air, admiring the colors of the flora, diving into the warm waters of the Pacific and the Atlantic, enjoying quiet colorful sunsets on the sand, relaxing in the hot waters springs, listening to the running water, feeling the water at the foot of a waterfall or boosting your adrenaline by zip-lining, rappelling or rafting. All this will help liberate the body, soul and mind, and all this can be found in this beautiful country.
