Adventure Spa Getaways

There are those who cannot lie down and relax for more than a few minutes. You can spot them a mile away. They are the ones who never really get into the groove of their poolside chairs, and spend way too much time laying out their towels and lining up a grand selection of books they are going to conquer in one afternoon. These A-type personalities may find adventure spas to be a much better fit for their energy levels. Adventure spas are perfectly suited to those who need to burn energy throughout the day in order to catch a few well earned z-z-z-z's at night.

Adventure spas offer varying levels of outdoor activities such as all-day hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, and horseback riding. Or kayaking, river rafting, water-sports. Or sports packages that include golf, tennis, or baseball. Or high level adventures for those who prefer active volcanos, rainforest jungles, high peak mountains, and conservation parks full of ferocious wild animals. The spa part? Ah, yes . . . the unwinding process. Upon the close of a day's activities, worn out bodies head back to the resort where they are delighted to find an abundance of pampering spa treatments and healthy gourmet food to nourish their bodies. Adventure spas are a great way to replace stress with challenging activities. So . . . who would pay to take a vacation to put their body through the hoops? Apparently, plenty since adventure spas are rapidly rising in popularity. Intriguing.
