Travel to Wellness, an online magazine of wellness travel, and Well-Being Travel, a marketing organization that focuses on educating the travel agent community, have released a consumer survey of the top 10 geographic wellness destinations throughout the globe:
- Costa Rica
- British Columbia
- New Zealand
“We're seeing that wellness vacations are definitely on the rise," says Anne Marie Moebes, executive vice president of Well-Being Travel. "In fact, the growing trend is what inspired the birth of Well-Being Travel a few years ago. We're devoted to helping travel agents become the health and wellness experts so many aspiring travelers are looking for these days." Conducted earlier this year, the independent survey asked readers what region they would chose for a wellness vacation and why. Mountains, oceans, beaches, and warm weather locales were the most common responses. “When considering the results of this survey we need to keep in mind that consumers are not telling us what they want and need in a wellness vacation, but what geographic destinations they perceive to be wellness destinations,” says Anne Dimon, founder and editor-in-chief of Travel to Wellness. “As an increasing number of destinations around the world work to position themselves as wellness destinations, consumer perception is key.”
