The global wellness industry, including psychedelic tourism, is projected to bring in more than a trillion dollars in revenue by 2027, according to a report by Global Industry Analysts. Condé Nast Traveler writes that “Blue Zone retreats are the new boot camp.” As more people continue to prioritize traveling for personal growth and longevity, tourism will increase in the five Blue Zones in the world.

Blue Zones are where people are believed to live happier, healthier lives, and a greater percentage of residents live to be more than 100 years old. 

Rythmia Life Advancement Center – the world’s first medically licensed plant medicine-based transformational center – is located in Guanacaste, Costa Rica, one of the Blue Zones.

Rythmia is not just a getaway, it’s an immersive experience designed to rejuvenate the mind, body and soul. The program, fully customizable to cater to individual needs, offers a unique and holistic approach to life enhancement, providing individuals with the tools they need to navigate personal and spiritual growth through the power of Ayahuasca. This powerful plant medicine has a rich history connected to the indigenous Costa Ricans and is known for its potential to induce profound spiritual insights and psychological healing.

Ayahuasca can address not only physical ailments but also the intricacies of mental and emotional health. It offers a holistic journey that extends beyond the physical realm.

Rythmia’s transformative program aims to help individuals overcome past traumas, limiting beliefs and achieve profound personal growth. The all-inclusive, medically licensed program offers a range of ancient healing traditions and modern therapies aimed at providing an immersive and life-changing experience.

The program includes curated Ayahuasca ceremonies, metaphysics coaching classes, yoga, Rythmic breathwork, volcanic mud baths, hydrocolonic cleanses, massages, farm-to-table organic food and more. These therapies are tailored to each participant’s unique needs, ensuring that each guest receives a personalized experience that meets their requirements for healing. 

The program has a 97% satisfaction rate from over 15,000 past program participants and has earned 2,400 five-star reviews on TripAdvisor.

Rythmia has attracted celebrity guests including Kelly Slater, Cesar Millan, Deontay Wilder, Ron White, Andre3000, Sterling K. Brown, Iyanla VanZant, Terrence Howard and Bobby Brown who have openly shared their journeys with psychedelics.

As public perception continues to shift positively, there’s a reduction in stigma and increased acceptance of the therapeutic use of psychedelics globally. Ongoing research highlights how psychedelics influence not just mental health but overall lifespan and aging processes, providing potential benefits for longevity and well-being.

Rythmia is set in a serene and luxurious environment that provides the perfect space for relaxation and reflection. Guests can disconnect from the stresses of everyday life and focus on their inner growth journey.
