How Muay Thai Vacations Was Originally Created
It all started back in 2015 when pro fighter and creator of Muay Thai Guy, Sean Fagan, was contacted by The Jungles Edge Resort about hosting a Muay Thai retreat in Costa Rica.
At the time Sean and his wife, Liz, never thought to host this type of event. They heard of Yoga Retreats before, but a Muay Thai Retreat? They didn't know of anyone doing such a thing...
... and so they decided to do it!
Where It All Began
The first Muay Thai Vacation was hosted in Nosara, Costa Rica at The Jungles Edge in March 2015.
It brought together a small group of only 4 people who had an absolute blast training Muay Thai, practicing yoga, surfing some waves and eating delicious, healthy Costa Rican food.
Everyone had such a transformative experience that Sean and Liz decided to commit to hosting yearly events in Costa Rica.
And then it began to grow...
Shortly after hosting their 3rd Muay Thai Vacation in Costa Rica, Sean was approached by a gym in Bangkok, Thailand called Khongsittha Muay Thai. They asked if he could host a training camp there... and of course Sean said YES!
This training camp sold out quickly and was one of the most epic trips ever. The campers got to train with champion-level Thai trainers twice a day while also being able to take in the unique culture and food that Bangkok has to offer.
On top of that they got to visit temples, watch fights at top stadiums and even get Sak Yant tattoos! Plus there were guest seminars from living legends Saenchai, Petchboonchu and Kaew Fairtex.
Needless to say, all the campers went home with a once-in-a-lifetime type of experience.
From Small Groups in Costa Rica To Sold Out Events All Around The World!
After multiple sold out events in Costa Rica and Bangkok, Sean and Liz decided to continue exploring other options to host unique Muay Thai Vacations around the world.
There's been training camps in Bangkok, Koh Phangan and Chiang Mai as well as retreats in Greece and Spain. Plus Sean has also hosted seminars in Norway, Ireland, America, and Estonia!
Now what is the Muay Thai Vacations crew up to?
Since Covid hit, Muay Thai Vacations has been on a break waiting for the world to open back up again. With signs pointing in an optimistic direction, Sean & Liz are now planning to start organising vacations again in 2022... starting with Costa Rica!
