Bee The Wellness is about encouraging wellness, wherever one happens to be in their life.

"Vanessa and Adam made me feel so welcome and special at the retreat. I had invented for myself the idea that I had to have specific eating habits, be a certain size,  be an accomplished athlete, etc. But I truly realized throughout the course of the week that Bee The Wellness is about encouraging wellness, wherever one happens to be in their life, and in whatever form best benefits that person. Never for one second did I feel judged or cornered into a prescribed behavior. Every single person on the retreat was lovely, funny, kind and adventurous. And what a spectacular place to experience all kinds of new activities! I cannot recommend these retreats enough if you need to come up for some air."

Join us in the beautiful and safe country of Costa Rica where the country's mantra Pura Vida (Pure Life) is felt from the moment you arrive. 

This is an action-packed adventure with activities including hiking, surfing, swimming in waterfalls, and white water rafting, as well as creative workshops and movement-mobility sessions led by your coaches Adam and Vanessa Lambert. 

Hosted at a magnificent estate overlooking Playa Espadilla.  While built-in a jungle setting and palms encompassed by natural Costa Rican vegetation. The expansive 11,000 SQ/FT fully air-conditioned Villa situated on almost 2 acres of prime tropical jungle embodies Costa Rican elegance. Yes, every room including all Bedrooms, Living Room, Kitchen, Dining Room, Secondary Family Room, and Yoga Area have stunning ocean views and is one of the few Villas that is provided with a Private Chef!

I immediately felt part of a wonderful community.

"I joined Adam and Vanessa on their Costa Rica retreat after hearing them on Rob Wolf's podcast. I liked their enthusiasm and the description of their programs, I looked up their website and spontaneously booked the retreat. What good luck that I had plans to gift myself a trip to a tropic location for my 40th birthday anyway! It turns out I was the only person without prior connection to Bee the Wellness and without a personal connection to Adam and Vanessa. But I immediately felt part of a wonderful community. We had wonderful fun with adventurous activities, enjoying the incredible house, views, country, music, and singing. The food was fantastic, healthy and so enjoyable. The movement sessions created a wonderful balance with the more physically demanding adventures, i.e. surfing and whitewater rafting (which were fantastic!). I would go again immediately. I have signed up for Unveil Your Wellness to stay in touch with the Bee community!"

This is something that has become so nourishing to my soul and I cannot wait until the next Adventure!

"This was my Fifth Retreat with Bee The Wellness and I keep coming back for more! The Retreats are all so amazing and Costa Rica has been one of my favorites as it is not only a Paleo Adventure Retreat but it is also a vacation with like-minded friends! Adam and Vanessa Lambert do it right! The retreats run with such ease that you have nothing to worry about from the time you arrive until you leave. Everything is planned out from activities, paleo meals cooked by our own Personal Chef and relaxing downtime where you get to hang out and talk and get to know all the amazing people that are on the trip. There are also mobility sessions daily and one of my favorite times of the day every night before bed a guided meditation by Vanessa to reflect on life and what happened during the day and during the retreat. The retreats are a time for me to get away from my everyday life of being a stay at home mom and where I can go to be with my tribe. Adam and Vanessa lead the way for all of us to be part of something bigger than all of us and make you feel so welcome you become family and go home with a bunch of new friends that become so important to your life. For me it has become so much more than a trip and adventure activities, it is a deep dive to do things I never thought I would do such as zip line or surf and be able to open up with people that understand and are all on the same journey in life. I cannot say enough good things about the Bee The Wellness Paleo Retreats as well as Adam and Vanessa Lambert and hope to be able to continue to attend as many as I can. This is something that has become so nourishing to my soul and I cannot wait until the next Adventure! Pura Vida!!!"
