7 Day Tai Chi Costa Rica Vacations

About us

We offer you a unique opportunity to discover the wonderful benefits of original Chen style tai chi in a pristine tropical oceanfront setting in Costa Rica.

Come alone or bring your own private group. 

Our packages include daily tai chi classes (from 1 to 4 hours each day) and lodging at Tai Chi Costa Rica House.

Our vacation packages are 7 days / 6 nights. You choose the dates that are best for you.

All classes are taught by Dr. Bob Bacher, who has 50 years experience with tai chi, and is authorized as a 20th generation lineage teacher by Grandmaster Wang Xi'an in Chen Family Village, China (the historical birth place of tai chi).

Dr. Bacher is also a licensed Doctor of Chiropractic since 1980. He combines his expertise as a doctor with his extensive experience teaching tai chi to offer you a program that is as much about self healing as it is self defense.
