Wellness Retreats

September 16, 2017

101.pngClose your eyes and slowly breathe in, and breathe out. Imagine this; a Caribbean vacation to a warm and sunny island. Imagine cooling trade winds blowing gently as you sit under a shady palm tree. Picture the Caribbean blue with glistening lights on the tops of small crests of water. Visualize seabirds playing in the waves, tropical birds drinking nectar from colorful flowers and pelicans cruising along the shoreline.  The images of a Caribbean escape immediately evoke a feeling of calm.

Bonaire is arguably one of the last unspoiled islands in the Caribbean. There are no traffic lights, nothing higher than four stories and a slow pace that allows visitors to immediately settle into an “island vibe”. Surrounded by pristine waters, the island is home to a plethora of skilled wellness practitioners. Healing artists include those skilled in Reiki and Energy Balancing. There are several yoga instructors, trained in the various schools. On island, find a seaside spa or a healing center to ease your weary body. Come practice Mindfulness and slow down to the speed of living.

Caribbean Wind and Sun Vacations specializes in Wellness Vacations. Luxury Wellness Packages include magnificent seaside and ocean view villas. Individualized wellness programs incorporate treatments to fit every need. Finding a balance between mind, body and spirit can be achieved while enjoying a Caribbean escape. In between your wellness retreat, learn to dive or windsurf. Snorkel amongst the healthy reefs. Dine on vegetarian cuisines. Savor the local flavors found in the many sea view restaurants.

Get back to who you were intended to be. Discover wellness on the Dutch Caribbean island of Bonaire.  For information and a wellness consultation, email ann@bonairecaribbean.com.

Bonaire – Is It Safe to Travel To Bonaire

September 8, 2017

First and foremost, thanks everyone for checking on my welfare. I am fine, actually on Cape Cod for my annual fall respite. Bonaire has not been impacted by Irma. Allow me to share a bit about Bonaire.

Bonaire is outside the hurricane belt. Located north of South America, the three island chain of Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao rarely see hurricanes. As a result, they are also quite arid.

As we read about the devastation from Hurricane Irma, it is important to know, whilst many islands were impacted, there are a group of Caribbean islands typically not impacted by hurricanes. They include but are not limited to:

  • Aruba
  • Bonaire
  • Curacao
  • Grenada
  • Barbados
  • Trinidad and Tobago
  • The Grenadines

The Caribbean islands rely on tourism. Continue to visit the islands prepared for tourism. Keep the Caribbean vibe alive. For those islands that have suffered devastation, fear not, they will rebuild. As of press, Antigua is open and ready for business.

Do you long to enjoy a Caribbean getaway but want to stick to your fitness regime. No worries, Bonaire has amazing dining and drink venues,  but you find  can a balance, continuing your fitness regime. I am in awe of the outstanding fitness options available on Bonaire. There are quite a few gyms, from spartan and basic to modern, with AC. I have experienced quite a few but wanted to share my experience working with fitness guru Mireille Boom. Mireille is trained under the Les Milles Program.  She presently teacher at The Beach, formerly Windsock Beach on EEG Blvd. She has two classes, Flowing Grace, a yoga style workout and HIT Training. I sampled both and loved each class. The seaside setting on the sun deck is magnificent.  The emphasis is on core stability. The HIT Training is a 30-minute power blast of cardio and weight training. Hundreds of calories are burned in each session.  I left exhausted but invigorated, just the way I like. I was challenged all the way, under Mireille’s instruction.

Caribbean Wind & Sun Vacations specializes in Wellness Vacations. Come immerse yourself in our nature and seaside experiences but also, tend to your mind, body and spirit. Bonaire awaits. Bon Bini, welcome soon.
