Our minds, bodies, and souls require and deserve time to relax, rejuvenate, cleanse, strengthen, and realign. We all lead busy lives that demand a lot of time and energy. In order to be the best parents, employees, bosses, partners, and friends, and the best versions of ourselves, we need to love and nourish ourselves. Wellness retreats are perfect for this, and Costa Rica has some incredible ones on offer.
