Costa Rica, 2023

“One day can change your whole life"

All of us would like to be healthier, to look better, and to live well both physically and spiritually.

Living well is almost the entire world’s shared dream.

As everything that is precious to us has been honored with a special day, why is it that we don’t have a special global day dedicated to the only thing which is really valuable to all of us, that is, living well? We can now answer this question by saying “it now exists”. This special day is called Global Wellness Day.

With the slogan “One day can change your whole life,” we celebrate Global Wellness Day on the second Saturday of June every year as an international day.

Global Wellness Day is an entirely not-for-profit day, a social project dedicated to living well. The purpose of Global Wellness Day is to ask the question, even if for just one day, “How can I live a healthier and better life?”, to direct the thoughts of both individuals and society towards “living well” and to raise awareness.

The main aims of the day are:

  • To recognize the value of our lives
  • To pause and think, even if for just one day of the year
  • To be free from the stress of everyday city life and bad habits
  • To make peace with ourselves
  • To raise awareness about living well and increase motivation, not just for today, but for the remaining 364 days of the year


First celebrated in 2012, Global Wellness Day was established in Turkey as the “first” day dedicated to living well, and has now been accepted worldwide. Reflecting its 10 years of success, on June 12, 2021, Global Wellness Day was celebrated globally with a 12-Hour Free Livestream Celebration which started in New Zealand and ended in Los Angeles, once again drawing attention to the importance of “living well”. Furthermore, Global Wellness Day scored huge success across the globe with both physical and online activities such as 12-hours of complimentary virtual classes in Thailand, 5-hour livestream of wellness talks in Malaysia and Jamaica, hiking and dancing in Barbados, pilates and yoga in Hungary, BoxHIIT and Zumba in New Zealand, sound meditation and aromatherapy workshops in Puerto Rico and much more.

To get one step closer towards living well, let ourmanifesto be your starting point.

Nowadays, Global Wellness Day Costa Rica is celebrated all over the country, thanks to the country's team support.

AtEco Wellness & Travel, GWD is an important celebration because it is part of our philosophy and reflects how we design our travel products, as a travel agency, for a real wellness experience in Costa Rica. 

Medical tourism + Wellness tourism = Health Tourism

Health tourism covers those types of tourism which have as a primary motivation, the contribution to physical, mental and/or spiritual health through medical and wellness based activities which increase the capacity of individuals to satisfy their own needs and function better as individuals in their environment and society.

Medical tourism is a type of tourism activity which involves the use of evidence-based medical healing resources and services (both invasive and non-invasive). This may include diagnosis, treatment, cure, prevention and rehabilitation.

Wellness tourism is a type of tourism activity which aims to improve and balance all of the main domains of human life including physical, mental, emotional, occupational, intellectual and spiritual. The primary motivation for the wellness tourist is to engage in preventive, proactive, lifestyle-enhancing activities such as fitness, healthy eating, relaxation, pampering and healing treatments

Wellness is a way to show the best of me. Wellness travel is our passion, our Ikigai, motivates us to be part of the change.


Wellness can be a lot and mean different things to each person. It is a somewhat abstract and subjective concept. For some it is a lifestyle, because they are habits that are carried out consciously to generate a benefit to health in an integral way and considering the dimensions of well-being, others may consider it as a fashion or a way to earn money, for others it may be not mean much. However, from the holistic perspective that we like to know and live it, it allows us to seek that balance within our lives.

Wellness is a modern word with ancient roots

The key tenets of wellness as both preventive and holistic can be traced back to ancient civilizations from the East (India, China) to the West (Greece, Rome). In 19th-century Europe and the United States, a variety of intellectual, religious and medical movements developed in parallel with conventional medicine.

With their focus on holistic and natural approaches, self-healing and preventive care, these movements have provided a firm foundation for wellness today.

Wellness-focused and holistic modalities have gained more visibility since the 1960s/1970s under the writings and thought leadership of an informal network of US physicians and thinkers (such as Halbert Dunn, Jack Travis, Don Ardell, Bill Hettler, and others). As these have evolved, proliferated, and gone mainstream, they have informed the healthy-living, self-help, self-care, fitness, nutrition, diet and spiritual practices that have become a flourishing wellness movement in the 21st century. (Global Wellness Institute)

The Global Wellness Institute defines wellness tourism as a travel associated with the pursuit of maintaining or enhancing one’s wellbeing.

Wellness tourism brings the promise of combating unwellness embedded in today’s travel and turning it into an opportunity to maintain and improve our holistic health.

Nowadays, more people are understanding the consequences of drastic health affectation because of unhealthy habits such as sedentarism, burnout, chronic stress, and mental disbalance, among others, suffered during the last decade. In addition, the increase in population aging, the excessive costs of healthcare, and the effects of Covid19 bring us a new perspective of life with a new model of self-care through healthy habits, learning strategies to manage stress, anxiety, depression, and more, allow us to find a balance at home and keep this wellbeing when we travel. We can get that across Wellness travel.

Wellness travel is based on two distinct kinds of journeys according to the traveler's motivations: 

A primary traveleris a person that seeks a destination and services to offer facilities associated with wellness living.

Asecondary traveler is a person interested in improving personal health and wellbeing during their vacation or holiday but is not looking for specific services, just taking advantage of what the destination offers.

At EcoWellness & Travel we have the knowledge and experience to prepare a specific program if you are a primary or secondary wellness traveler.


Wellness is a word that was not often spoken or seen in print just 10 years ago. Yet, in the last few years, it has become ubiquitous in consumer and trade media and has entered the vernacular all around the world. Within a relatively short span of time, wellness has emerged as a dominant lifestyle value, driving interest in fitness, healthy eating, self-care, mindfulness, stress reduction, wellness vacations, healthy aging, complementary medicine, holistic health, and other wellness practices. As consumer interest in all things related to wellness accelerates, wellness is becoming a selling point for all kinds of products and services—from food and vitamins to real estate and vacation packages, and from gym memberships and healthcare plans to meditation apps and DNA testing kits.

Wellness was estimated by the Global Wellness Institute to be a $4.5 trillion market in 2017. Its growth rate has consistently outpaced global GDP growth, posting positive gains even in years of global economic downturn. What accounts for the seemingly unstoppable growth of wellness and its proliferation throughout the economy? In recent decades, vast economic, technological, social, demographic, and environmental changes have transformed every aspect of our lives—our homes and communities, food, work, shopping, education, friendship, leisure, travel, etc.—with both positive and negative impacts on our health and wellbeing. The growth of wellness practices and businesses is fundamentally a consumer response to these developments, and this response is turning into a major societal and economic force.
