Wellness Wednesday: Mediterranean Motivation

Mediterranean living is something we at Paraiso Adventures strive to emulate. We love the Mediterranean region so much, we have recently added a retreat in Paros, Greece for this fall. Much like its inhabitants, we value an active lifestyle and a well balanced diet. This phenomenal combination is known to contribute to lifetime longevity, improved heart health, and a […]

Weekend Round Up: Packing Savvy

There is something so satisfying about sifting through someone’s travel bag. The items packed lend great insight into that person’s life, preferences, and maybe even some of their tricks! Today, I’m going to let you peak inside my bag and share my go-to travel essentials. With these items on hand, I feel prepared for whatever may […]

Community Love: Outdoor Yoga Events

The outdoors are starting to feel (and look!) a lot like the inside of a hot yoga studio here in NYC. Temperatures are rising, people are sweating, and yoga classes are venturing out of the studio.  It seems like every park we pass, people are pouring onto their mats and taking their practice to the streets– we couldn’t […]

Tayrona Named Top Nature Area

Matador Network has named one of our very own locations one the top 23 scenic nature areas to explore before you die, in an article recently published on the travel network’s website.

Girl drinking Water

Wellness Wednesday: Hydration Station

I’m parched! Pass the water! Until fairly recently, I wasn’t giving my body enough water.  Turns out this is a problem for most of us, especially because we don’t always recognize we’re thirsty.  It’s actually common for people to confuse thirst with hunger. Go figure! The next time you find yourself reaching for that break […]

Foodie Friday: Gluten Free Italian

This Foodie Friday features a gluten free “spaghetti” dish inspired by our Italy Retreat. We are in Umbria for the next couple weeks soaking in the Italian countryside, exploring local vineyards, practicing daily yoga, and cooking up some delicious recipes! Our guests will be arriving on Sunday and we cannot wait to get started! In […]
