All-Inclusive, All-Natural Healing Retreats in South America

Enjoy physical and spiritual rejuvenation in these conscious travel packages to Ecuador and Peru, hosted by Alive and Revive.




This summer, Dr. Melanie Icard and Alive and Revive are hosting two separate healing retreats in Ecuador and Peru for those whose idea of the perfect vacation consists of physical and spiritual rejuvenation and seeking an escape from the beaten path. If so, then these adventures won’t disappoint.

Alive and Revive retreats are all-inclusive and offer local healthy cuisine, vitamin injections, acupuncture, yoga and more. Flexible daily schedules allow travelers to explore their beautiful surroundings at their own pace.

From June 2 through 10, participants will explore gorgeous Ecuadorian beaches and the Andes Mountains with a small, intimate group of like-minded travelers. They will enjoy jungle horseback rides, surfing, parasailing, thermal hot mud spas, eucalyptus steam rooms and hydrotherapy pools. Those interested in local medicine can also visit shamans and medicine women for cleanses.

Icard’s group will explore Cusco and Machu Picchu, in Peru, from July 8 through 15 learning about the mystical Incan civilization, their connection with the cosmos and ancient healing techniques.

Icard says, “Sometimes the best way to jump-start self-care is to ditch your normal routine, skip town and explore a new beautiful place. Don’t think that’s possible? Think again.”
