Women Travel Abroad


December 16-22, 2024

WTA longs to make sure our travelers have choices in the way they travel. We heard from several past travelers that they want off-the-beaten-path trips that will give them not only the Ease, Comfort & Style that we already provide but also relaxation, renewal, and restoration.

With that, we are excited to unveil…

Wellness Travel Abroad

We travel to Relax, Renew, & Restore

Escape the ordinary and experience genuine Costa Rica in full Wellness Travel Abroad style! This rainforested Central American country has amazing coastlines and extraordinary wonders of nature that will leave us in awe. On our wellness trip we will focus on rejuvenation from the ever-increasing demands and stresses of daily life. And thanks to the rich biodiversity and abundant wildlife in Costa Rica, we will explore the canopy of the Costa Rican rainforest and spot exotic wildlife and animals on this trip. Our wellness trips aim to provide the personal escape you need to revitalize and recharge your life. So, during the trip, you will have the opportunity to reconnect with yourself and focus on regaining balance through time in nature, exercise, good food, and relaxation.

DAY 1 – December 16 – Arrive at Juan Santamaría International Airport (SJO). Private transportation to the hotel followed by a welcome drink. After settling into our hotel we will have our welcome dinner.

DAY 2 – December 17 – We will enjoy a guided Mystic Hike. A time for intention and meditation. We’ll walk through a magical knot garden, hidden paths that embrace nature’s elements, and our delightful hummingbird garden as we focus on consciousness, happiness, and our higher purpose. Every day is earth day, and we will plant a tree and leave a living legacy in Costa Rica’s carbon offsetting forest to help bring back the Quetzal birds to the region.

DAY 3 – December 18 – Morning Organic Garden Visit. We will have the opportunity to become an organic farmer by waking up the chickens for their morning feeding and harvesting the still warm organic eggs used for breakfast. We can feed the hungry trout and help harvest farm fresh vegetables. Followed by a well-deserved Spa Day.

DAY 6 – December 21 – Arenal Volcano & Hot springs. Set in Costa Rica’s lush northern plains. Arenal Volcano is one of Costa Rica’s most iconic landmarks. A magnificent towering volcano that’s surrounded by wild vegetation and an underground maze of steamy hot springs. Perfect for therapeutic relaxation.

Day 7 – December 22 – FREE DAY. Plan another day at the spa, go zip lining, go birdwatching, or simply relax and meditate. Farewell Dinner.
