Destination Detox

San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua

Yoga guru Erica Gragg founded Escape to Shape based on the belief that the best vacations combine luxury, fitness, and culture. Her Destination Detox trips are more virtuous than other itineraries, but daily circuit training and going gluten free doesn’t seem so bad when you’re at the beach. The six-night Destination Detox Nicaragua retreat runs throughout 2017 and includes daily hikes, yoga, meditation, and circuit training. Guests stay in ocean-view bungalows at Morgan’s Rock hotel. Farm-to-table meals are mostly raw and organic and a juice-cleanse rounds out the program. Cooking classes and nutrition lectures provide guests tips to take home. A private boat cruise, kayaking adventure, and a shopping day in Granada keep things fun. From $4,000; escapetoshape.com.
