Do they support ethical economic development in their communities, which means everything from minimizing plastic consumption and making greener transportation choices to eating at locally-owned restaurants and booking eco-conscious accommodations.

Many wellness resorts offer comprehensive educational programming that focuses on physical and spiritual health. Group discussions led by experienced staff (all conducted in a judgment-free environment) that aim to address the psychological, logistical or other roadblocks preventing people from reaching their optimal health and wellness.
