Martial Arts Vacations and Holidays In Tropical Paradise

Love Muay Thai? Love traveling? Then what better way to escape the daily grind of life than taking a holiday training Muay Thai in the beautiful tropics of Costa Rica! Listen to what past retreaters have said about their experiences at one of the retreats.

The Perfect “Train-cation” For Muay Thai Addicts

Muay Thai, surfing, hiking, beautiful nature, good food, beaches, and more.

Who wouldn’t want to wake up to training in beautiful nature, then sipping on delicious coconut juice between bites of a mouth-watering post-workout meal? There aren’t enough adjectives in the English language, nor any language, to describe the beauty of the Muay Thai Retreat.

“It’s been an amazing lifetime experience.” – Adam V

Escape The Daily Grind in The Tropics of Costa Rica

This type of active vaccation is the reset button for all your anxiety and stress. It’s a chance to take a look back so you don’t miss the forest for the trees (literally too, in the case of Muay Thai Retreat). Let’s dive into Andy’s experience of Muay Thai Retreat and how he was able to use his time here as a reset button and as a way to flush out the negative emotions to replace them with mindset changing experiences.

“Honestly, it exceeded my expectations.” – Andy S.

Detox Your Mind, Body and Spirit at a Muay Thai Retreat

If you go to one of these Muay Thai vacations you’re able to escape the stressors of life and completely cleanse your mind, body and soul. Listen to what past retreater Harland had to say about his experience at my retreat earlier this year.

“The overall chill, relax, focus on your training, focus on your body… was worth every penny.” -Harland J.


“I was a bit nervous going to Costa Rica on a Muay Thai retreat. New country, new people, and traveling alone left me not knowing what to expect. But as soon as I landed and met Sean, Liz and Wes, I knew that it was going to be amazing!

We trained twice a day, every day, and every session we learned something new and got in great shape while doing it. Sean is an amazing teacher with a lot of knowledge and love for Muay Thai. After each session, I felt a better sense of what my weaknesses are and what my strengths are. Training with Sean in Costa Rica gave me what I needed to re-motivate myself and be the best that I can be inside the ring and outside. I will definitely be attending more of his retreats!

I feel very fortunate to have had this experience and will definitely implement what I learned into my training and into my style of fighting. I can’t thank Sean enough!”

At first I was thinking to go to Thailand but I figured Costa Rica is closer to home, less expensive, no jet lag, and no time adjusting. The resort we stayed and trained at was beautiful and I figured I’ll learn from Seans experiences cause he’s been to Thailand many times. And I’m glad I did!!

I met some amazing people that I now call friends, We all share the love and passion for the sport of muay thai, I met people from different training background and fighting style, training was twice a day with a rest or activity in between, food was organic and healthy, weather was sunny and warm and the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever seen were within 5 minutes walk!

I’ve been doing martial arts for the last 20 years of my life and I thought I know it all, until I trained with Sean. I learned some new techniques that I’ve never tried before and worked on improving my existing skills, all in a fun and friendly atmosphere.

I highly recommend a Muay Thai retreat, an awesome experience that you will be telling your family and friends about with pride and will never forget!”

“I spent one week on Sean’s first Muay Thai Retreat at Jungle’s Edge in beautiful Nosara, Costa Rica, and it couldn’t have been better. I’ve already written up a 5-star review on Trip Advisor for Jungle’s Edge, so I’ll focus on the actual retreat here.

From the moment I met Sean, he was extremely friendly, down-to-earth, and just as excited as us to get training. He was a consummate professional, very knowledgeable, and patient. We all came from different martial arts backgrounds and experiences, but Sean was able to adapt and teach us appropriately. He focused not only on our strengths, but weaknesses, andI can safely say that I left as a better Muay Thai enthusiast.

Furthermore, Sean introduced us to several Dutch style combinations not routinely practiced at my gym, and some excellent defensive counters to keep opponents guessing.

Sean has a no nonsense approach to his teaching. It’s effective, it’s both offensive and defensive, and it’s rooted in his experience as an amateur and professional fighter. I would absolutely recommend his retreats, and I look forward to attending his next one in Costa Rica in 2016.

I didn’t know what to expect, going to a new country, training with some unfamiliar faces and stepping out of my comfort zone, but attending Sean Fagans’ Muay Thai retreat in Costa Rica in March of 2015 was one of the best choices I made.

I was surprised right off the bat how down to earth and friendly Sean was. I have had a lot of good luck with generally only dealing with positive people in the muay Thai community but you never know meeting somebody you have only followed online. Not only was he friendly to myself and the other members of our group but he was open to our input as far as what we wanted to train and do outside of training.

It’s always challenging making everyone happy especially a group that was pretty mixed as ours. He was patient with us, which is one of the hardest parts of training or teaching other. Some people don’t have that quality and it makes them poor teachers… Sean definitely is not lacking in this.

As far as the resort and country went, it was awesome. It was really the experience of a lifetime amazing food, beautiful beaches, super friendly locals and tropical weather. The hosts were extremely accomodating and friendly, I would go there again in a heart beat.

One of the coolest parts about the whole experience was meeting new people from different parts of the world that came together over a common bond like muay Thai, it really shows the positivity this sport can bring into your life. I gained some great experience from Sean and would train under him again anytime. The first day back to my normal gym people were amazed how much I was showing improvement, just from one week of focused work with Sean.
