Join Denny and Susan as they host a life-changing experience, Healthy Vacation Adventure in Costa Rica, November 10-16. 2019.

The macrobiotic-focused trip is unlike any other experience on the planet. The vacation includes high quality local meals, fun spiritual activities & allows you to enjoy traveling without the concerns of unhealthy actions. You will also have the opportunity to eat, talk, and spend time with Denny, Susan, and many other health-minded participants. This trip will strengthen your macrobiotic practice and equip you to be a goodwill ambassador for macrobiotics.

Unlike many health-focused events, you will discover the vibrant meaning of modern-day macrobiotics from a regional, spiritual, educational, cooking and communal perspective. You will visit Arenal volcano and hot springs, the Tabacon resort, meet locals at the daily market, and receive expert briefings from leaders in the macrobiotic community. You can even experience yoga, massage, tree-planting, hiking, and other excursions in the Costa Rica rainforest!

Don’t miss this incredible experience! Call (215) 238-9212 for more information or register online today!

What Will We Be Doing?

SHI’s 1st healthy vacation adventure will take place in a beautiful rain forest setting located in Costa Rica. This week-long excursion provides travelers with a special on-site experience with Denny & Susan Waxman at the Tabacon Luxury Hot Springs Resort in Nuevo Arenal, Costa Rica. The property provides a ton of exciting activities and we will have interactive group discussions and off-site activities.

ALL MEALS ARE INCLUDED!!! We have worked diligently with the Tabacon Resort’s executive chef to create 3 Costa Rican-style macrobiotic meals designed by Susan Waxman and served each day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. That’s right — 3 meals a day that are both delicious and healthy and will fit into any macrobiotic practice (standard menu items available as well). The trip is designed for experienced macrobiotic practitioners as well as those who are new to it. Come learn and share your knowledge with the group!

*Flights NOT included

Why Hold a Macrobiotic-Themed Event?

For decades, we have been asked for ideas on how to travel in a way that supports healthy living. Our friends have had issues while traveling that include difficulty finding healthy places to eat, finding active things to do, and meeting people that share the same values. After years of planning, we have finally found a suitable idea to bring people together for a truly life-changing event! Every meal, the location, the people being invited, and the activities planned, have all been deeply considered to ensure that you have an amazing time.

Why Costa Rica?

Costa Rica — and specifically the area of the rainforest you will be traveling to, is one of the most beautiful environments known to man! With views of the Arenal Volcano from the resort, to on-site thermal hot springs, you will have some of the strongest natural cleansing features in the world at your finger tips. Additionally, you will be given access to a private area of the hot springs that is not open to the public.  Also, the native foods of Costa Rica are tropical, exotic, and will serve as a refreshing variation to any diet.

From the amazing backdrop of Nuevo Arenal to the unique temperate cuisine, you won’t want to miss your chance to experience this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!

Will It Be an Amazing Experience?

Experiencing a new country, learning about a new culture, tasting new food, meeting some incredible people and taking an active part in connecting with the environment, people, and everything Costa Rica has to offer, is what our trip is all about. Each individual experience may be different, but it’s all about connecting with others – that’s what’s important.

Improve your connection to nature and prepare for an impact that will last far beyond the days of your trip!
