Vet Candy Retreat
Join us in sunny Costa Rica for adventure, fun, and exciting continuing education. Thirteen hours of RACE-approved continuing education will be provided to attendees!* Our program, hosted by Vet Candy, will combine interesting lectures to further your professional and personal development with wellness activities and free time to enjoy the surroundings and one another. Experience the continuing education conference like no other while you soak up the sun, network with other professionals and enjoy well-deserved relaxation in luxurious surroundings.
On two mornings before the lectures begin, we will offer yoga classes led by a local instructor. We'll move our bodies and ready our minds for the day ahead while looking at the picturesque tropical surroundings! Also, when we're not in session, guests are welcome to take advantage of the beautiful and relaxing resort amenities, pool and beach. There are complimentary bikes and kayaks as well as SUP rentals and spa services available (for an additional fee).
There are so many incredible things to see and do in Costa Rica, and on our retreat, we will have an exciting day trip on our last day together. We will go sailing on a memorable catamaran tour on the Pacific Ocean, complete with snorkeling, open bar, light lunch, and a possible whale and dolphin sightings!
