It was a fabulous trip in every way. We were active yet the trip was amazingly relaxing. The retreat site was beautiful. The beaches were amazing and we loved all the guides.
The Costa Rica trip was exceptional. The fitness aspect was thoughtful and varied and I felt that I could work at my own pace with Elaine guiding me and aware of my physical limitations. The group activities were such fun! We all got to know each other and had a wonderful time on our rainforest hike, zip lining, and SUP. The group all got along great having never met, and even want to have a reunion. Every aspect of the trip was taken care of- from transportation, to gourmet food, excellent accommodations, exercise, excursions, etc. Looking forward to many more trips with retreat2wellness!
Elaine has a unique way of reaching out to everyone’s personal needs and to make sure everyone is enjoying themselves. This trip to the Azores has changed the way I will travel in the future with family and friends. Truly a trip of a life time!!! Thanks Elaine
This was the most amazing trip- truly an experience of a lifetime. Elaine was highly organized about all aspects of planning and execution from beginning to end- coordinating travel to and from airports and hotels, arranging tour guides for every activity, meals etc. I had to do absolutely no planning and had no worries and could just relax knowing everything was taken care of. The walking tours of Buenes Aires were fantastic, very knowledgeable tour guide took us to places off the beaten path. The restaurants Elaine chose provided genuine examples of local food with 6 course meals and wine pairings- incredible! The travel to Patagonia from BA was seamless. The activities each day were very well organized, but be prepared for 2 hours of driving on unpaved roads to get into the Andes, and 2.5 hours on a horse each way up and down the mountain for the hike to the glacier- this is the price to pay to get to see the most amazing views and well worth it; you need to be in decent physical sh…
I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed the trip. It exceeded my high expectations. I loved everything about it, but most especially meeting all of my fellow travelers. What an amazing group of women! So happy to have met all of you.
Everything about the Belize retreat was excellent. I had so much fun and would highly recommend it.
This trip met or exceeded all of my expectations and I would love to do another one. I will definitely recommend it to friends and co-workers. Thanks so much!
Thank you Elaine for the great trip! Your organizational skills in putting together such a thorough and challenging tour of the islands, your introduction to the best guide ever, Jose, and your encouragement and support for not just me but the entire group of outstanding women you assembled all made this a trip I will never forget.
Just spent a week with Elaine and a small group of like minded travelers exploring the Azores. It was wonderful! Elaine is so welcoming and fun, and she had fantastic local contacts that together orchestrate a truly unique experience. From yoga, to hiking, biking, and rappelling, there was no shortage of fun activities to stay active and explore the landscape. And the small group size was perfect for enjoying delicious meals and lots of laughs together. I hope to join one of her adventures again some time!
The trip completely fulfilled my needs. The other travelers on the trip were a delight and kept me entertained and engaged. Quiet time, alone time, needed to be found on an individual basis and I found a couple hours alone every morning before the official day began to just breathe. This alone time coupled with group time created a very restorative trip for me.
