Zoetry Wellness & Spa Resorts

Wellness is a pretty mainstream word now a days. I enjoy that so much! I also feel that wellness is defined by the individual. I personally define wellness as the big picture. It isn't just a yoga class, HIIT class, meditation, kale salad, green juice or the latest search for environmentally friendly goods. It’s all of that combined in a balance of everyday life and attainable goals. Sometimes that balance needs a change of scenery and I’ve been looking for the ultimate wellness vacation; one with all those combinations and more. Zoetry Paraiso De La Bonita is on my radar! I’ve done the research and I cannot wait to vacation!
Travel Tips To Get Healthy Before Your Trip
By Jocelyn Sidwell, HC, FNS, NASM CPT
Cleaning, packing, scheduling, stressing… it all goes into planning a trip. How does a fun vacation cause stress before we even leave??? Here are my tips for keeping the body, mind and spirit well before you travel so you can have the most amazing adventure. I use these lifestyle habits before I travel, and to get back on track when I return.
Focusing on less processed foods creates less stress on our immune system allowing our bodies to heal and not fight. Excess salt and sugar along with added chemicals and preservatives puts our body in a state of fight and sometimes shock. Give your body proper nutrients and you will start to feel better and be ready to jump into vacation action! Implement these practices 2 weeks before your trip and you will feel results!

Eat Healthy On Your Vacation To Be Able To Enjoy (And Remember) Every Moment
By Jocelyn Sidwell H.C FNS NASM CPT May 2019
I am a warm weather gal. I get the exhilaration of skiing, but give me a beach and a bikini and I am happy! When my fiancé told me we were going to Puerto Rico for Christmas I was so excited! I’ve never been and hello warm weather in December! So, we called Jennifer with Travel Pros and off we went! Thank goodness she makes traveling so much easier, such a seamless experience. There are enough stresses in this world than to have to stress over planning a relaxing vacation. Am I right? I will always use her as my travel agent!
We stayed close to Villa Montana, in Aguadilla, and wow is that resort gorgeous! We were right around the corner from Hobos and other surf spots. My fiancé is a huge surfer so we made sure we were centrally located. We checked out Wilderness a few times, hiked Survival Beach, paddle boarded at Crash Boats, it was glorious.
