“What drains your spirit drains your body. What fuels your spirit fuels your body”

Your Journey to balance and rejuvenation.
A COVID Safe Adventure.
This last year has been more demanding on health professionals than ever before. After spending the last two months traveling and leading MedTreks Trips to Kenya & Italy, we are constantly hearing our guests say THE SAME THING:
“it feels so good just to step away, be nourished by a different pace of life and find a renewal & rejuvenation”
Yes, Yes and YES.
This is our goal for health professionals in 2021 and 2022: find your reset button and rediscover the passion and purpose in what you do. So we are returning to one of our favorite places this November, offering an incredible trip that we have opened to anyone who needs to fill up their cup and fuel their spirit in this tropical paradise.
Below we will share why this is one of our favorite places to rest, restore and recharge.
MedTreks Costa Rica
Our MedTreks Costa Rica trip this November is in Nosara, located in the heart of the “Blue Zone” of the Nicoya Peninsula. Nosara is a tranquil coastal town with a variety of healthy and fun activities around every corner, from juice bars, spas, and yoga studios to boutique shops, and delicious international healthy food restaurants.
Between the warm waters, the coastal temperatures, and the sounds of nature, this place is incredibly relaxing and a perfect opportunity to spend a week focusing on restoring balance and rejuvenating your body, mind, and soul with yoga, meditation, breathwork, swimming, hiking, and nutritious foods.
To make this trip enjoyable and open for anyone who feels their body and soul needs it, we have created two separate options for the week in paradise:
Yoga & Wellness Retreat
Wake up to the sounds of the waves, surrounded by birdsong in the jungle. Spend the morning practicing meditation, yoga, or doing a morning movement workout on the three miles of white sand beach. Enjoy a delicious lunch at one of the boutique cafés in Nosara. Spend the afternoon participating in several different yoga classes (more below!) or enjoy lounging by the pool with a book. Evenings are for sunsets, salsa classes, or candlelight yoga!
Medical Spanish Bootcamp
Monday – Friday will be the optional Medical Spanish portion from 8 -12 p.m. This class is designed for beginner to intermediate Spanish speakers who want to gain more skills and confidence in the Spanish language.

Nurses can earn up to 20 CEs for the Medical Spanish and up to 8 CEs for the Yoga & Wellness Adventure in Costa Rica.
Yoga & Wellness in Wellness in Paradise
The town of Nosara is bursting with yoga studios and some of the most experienced and incredible yoga teachers around the world. Our yoga classes will be held at the world-famous Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort with six different yoga shalas surrounded by the jungle. We will also have some specialty classes on meditation, breathwork, and sound healing as options throughout the week.
There are between 4-6 different style of yoga classes every day welcoming all levels of yoga practitioners, from beginners to advanced. Styles of classes include the following:
Flow & Restore
Move and breathe through restorative yoga poses that facilitate deep rest and nourishment.
Hatha Yoga & Meditation
A deeply integrated classed infused with mindful flowing sequences to build mobility, flexibility, and strength.
A soothing and deeply relaxing class with healing sounds from instruments all around the world.
Heart & Core
A vinyasa-styled class that focuses on heart opening and energizing sequences as well as focusing on core strengthening and endurance.
Nosara sits in a tropical heaven of mangrove stands, lush vegetation, and abundant wildlife. The pristine and undeveloped coastline creates a beautiful backdrop for the amazing sunsets. On the MedTreks trip there will be optional activities to kayak the mangroves, zip-line through the jungle, or hike to a local waterfall.
Our home for the week is located on Playa Guiones, known for its consistent and friendly surfing conditions, 365 days a year. Silky white sand and warm crystalline waters make this a perfect surfing location for novices and advanced surfers alike. No large resorts, no high-rise buildings… just peaceful.
Ecological, sustainable, tranquil, luxury lodging
Our home for the week is a lovely boutique eco-hotel nestled in the tropical jungle just steps from the ocean waves. This Costa Rican hotel has become well known for pioneering the sustainability movement in Nosara.
Optional 20 hr Medical Spanish Course
MedTreks partners with Nosara Spanish Institute to provide you with a unique condensed course in Medical Spanish. This program was co-created by a team of medical professionals and Spanish language instructors to provide the most high-yield Medical Spanish course during an 8-day stay on the Nicoya Peninsula of Costa Rica.
About the Course
Since Costa Rica is such an outdoor adventurer’s paradise, we have specifically designed this course so that Spanish classes and learning are packed into the mornings, allowing you to enjoy and explore the beautiful beach/jungle life in the afternoons.
