Why A Muay Thai Retreat Is The Best Vacation You Can Take
Don’t you just LOVE vacation? Of course you do, vacation is the best!
If you do it right, it’ll be an incredible life changing experience that you’ll remember forever.
If you do it wrong, it will just be another ordinary vacation where you come back unhealthier, unmotivated and feel like you completely wasted your time… and money!
I get it, you want a vacation where you can completely detach, de-stress and forget about all the responsibilities you have back at home… but on the same token, you DON’T want a vacation where you become a lazy gluttonous beast that eats everything in sight and comes home with an additional 15 pounds of fat.
Gaining weight, picking up bad habits and losing motivation are the exact reasons why the ‘traditional’ vacation is becoming less and less appealing.
Instead of taking a trip where you don’t do anything but lounge around, drink margaritas and eat like a pig, why not take a vacation where you actually better yourself and work on some self-improvement?
Being that you’re reading this post, I’m guessing you’re the type of person who wants to actually come back from your vacation as a newer, better version of yourself. You want a vacation that sets you up for success–not one that slows you down from reach your goals. Am I right?
If you’re looking for more than just an “ordinary” vacation and you’re a passionate Muay Thai practitioner, by now you should know that taking a Muay Thai retreat is probably the BEST choice you can make for your next vacation. You don’t even have to believe me… just watch this video and see what you can experience on one of these trips!

7 Reasons To Make a Muay Thai Retreat Your Next Vacation
#1. You Train In The Sport You Love!
Afraid of taking a trip and getting out of a flow of training? That’s something you will never have to worry about if you take a vacation that is focused around Muay Thai!
Besides the fact that you’ll be keeping up with your training even while on vacation, you’ll also learn a variety of new techniques, drills and training methods that you can bring back home to showoff to your training partners and add to your normal routine. Needless to say, your Muay Thai skills will definitely improve if you choose to immerse yourself in a retreat like this.
#2. Beautiful Beaches And The Most Amazing Sunsets You’ll Ever Witness
It doesn’t get much better than jumping in the ocean to cool off after a hard training session!
With only being a short 10-15 minute walk, you’ll be able to spend as much down time as you’d like on the gorgeous Guinoes beach. On your way there, grab a fresh coconut or fruit smoothie before finding a spot to rest and relax to get a tan or catch up on one of your favorite books.
Oh yea, and I can’t forget to mention the sunsets! I promise that once you see the first sunset you’ll want to come back every night just to see it again. It’s hard to argue against the idea that the Costa Rican sunsets are the most spectacular sunsets you’ll ever see… you have to see it to believe it!
#3. World Class Surfing, Yoga and Other Fun Activities
Besides feeling the breeze as you train Muay Thai in an open-air studio in the heart of the jungle, you’ll also be able to mix up your daily routine with any one of the other exciting activities such as;
- Surfing: Catch some waves with an experienced surf instructor on one of the best rated (and safest) beaches in the world for beginners who are learning how to surf.
- Yoga: Take rejuvenating yoga session to slow life down and breathe. Besides the obvious benefits of flexibility, balance and strength, yoga will also help you improve your mindset in ways you could never imagine.
- Jungle Hikes and Waterfall Tours: Build up a sweat as you trek through the jungle to discover refreshing waterfalls to jump into!
- Snorkeling: The waters surrounding Costa Rica are home to nearly 7,000 marine species, some 3.5 percent of the total aquatic life on Earth. Snorkeling through these warm, clear waters is a fabulous way to enjoy the amazing aquatic bio-diversity.
- ATV and Mountain Biking: Whip around Costa Rica on ATV’s and bikes made specifically for handling the rough terrain and getting you to your destination as soon as possible.
#4. Healthy, Delicious Costa Rican Cuisine
By now you should know that this Muay Thai retreat isn’t your ordinary vacation… right? So you probably could’ve guessed that the food that you’ll eat while in Costa Rica will NOT be the hormone injected, unhealthy foods that you get at home or other resorts.
At The Jungles Edge they cook only organic, fresh produce and meats from nearby farms and vendors. You can literally step out of your room onto a pathway shaded by 20- 25 ft. organic banana trees. They also have their own luscious organic garden laden with various herbs, vegetables and fruits. You can enjoy picking your own and watch the chefs prepare your juices, smoothies and gourmet meals!
Vegetarian or vegan? Do you have any type of food preference? Mention it to the people at the resort and they will cater to your every need!

#6. You’ll Meet Amazing, Passionate People
It’s hard to go to a Muay Thai retreat and not meet some awesome people. Besides the fact that you’ll share the same interest with Muay Thai, chances are you will have SO much more in common than you would think.
With each retreat group spending time training, eating and exploring together, it’s hard not to build a strong bond with one another. There will be nights where we have bonfires on the beach underneath the amazing night sky, and other days where we’ll go shopping in the local stores to buy souvenirs for friends and family back home. Each day is a new adventure and it’s great being able to share the experience with other like-minded people.
Each person who attends a retreat goes back home knowing that were able to build true relationships with people from all over the world. And on top of that, you’ll also be pleasantly surprised by how friendly and accommodating the local people and hosts of the Jungles Edge are!
#7. It Will Set You Up For Success
This is the type of vacation where you’ll come back refreshed, rejuvenated and more motivated than ever. Not only will you have tightened up your Muay Thai technique, but you’ll also be in BETTER shape than when you left… which does NOT happen in an ordinary vacation.
My goal for this Muay Thai retreat is to motivate and inspire you to live a healthy, active, and purposeful life. I know how the grind of day-to-day life can be a struggle, but my aim is to show you how to turn that struggle into an exciting journey of personal growth and spiritual insight.
Look at what past retreater Aileen said about her experience:
“Training with Sean in Costa Rica gave me what I needed to re-motivate myself and be the best that I can be inside the ring and outside. I will definitely be attending more of his retreats!”
And she’s not the only one who feels this way. There were guys like Mikhail who said:
“This was the best experience I’ve ever had traveling, and I’ve traveled quite a bit!”
Or Adili from Toronto who didn’t know what to expect from the retreat but came away with;
“Hands down one of the best experiences of my life”
