Wellness travel has come a long way from packing a pair of sneakers in your luggage to squeeze in a morning run or work out in a cramped hotel gym. Travelers can now escape the craziness of the modern world to blissful yoga retreats in the rain forests of Costa Rica or the jungles of Indonesia.

Travelers can partake in  Balinese healing ceremonies and bath blessings with a shaman in Mexico.  Or they can spend time in a ritual Mayan Temascal sweat lodge.  Of course, an 8 handed massage in the Maldives may be just what you need to relax and feel rejuvenated.  For something a bit out of the ordinary, try a cacao facial in St Lucia or a ramen noodle bath in Japan.

You can include hot springs in Costa Rica or St Lucia.  You can soak in natural spa and mineral baths in Hungary, Iceland and Italy
