Apple Vacations launched Fitcations, a fitness vacation program that kicks off with a weeklong Zumba party at the Now Amber Puerto Vallarta on June 16.
The program is run in conjunction with Fit Bodies, an agency that places fitness, yoga and sport professionals at resort facilities for a teaching vacation.
The Zumba workout combines dance and aerobic elements with the rhythms of hip-hop, soca, samba, salsa, merengue, mambo. It also can include Bollywood and belly dance moves.
The package price is $999 per person, double occupancy. It includes roundtrip charter air from Chicago O'Hare on Frontier Airlines, transfers, a seven-night hotel stay, all meals, drinks, taxes and daily Zumba classes. Departures from other cities are available.
Zumba specialist Barbara Klontz offers one-day instructor training for Fitcation participants for an additional fee.
Fitcations by Apple Vacations will be a recurring series, starting with the Zumba party on June 16. There will be more fitness-themed packages added throughout the year.
