A detox vacation doesn’t exactly sound relaxing, much less enjoyable. I’ve been on a few in the US, including one at Canyon Ranch, and they were miserable. For lack of a better way of saying it, all my previous experiences left me feeling like I was vacationing on a fat farm; worse yet, I gained weight after leaving Canyon Ranch because the food was so horrible I spent my days overeating granola mixes, bars, and energy snacks that were high in sugar and calories. Turns out, as with many other things, Europeans do detox better.

Right up there with Capri, St. Tropez, and Biarritz is Mykonos. It’s one of the world’s most awe-inspiring vacation destinations and now, with the euro at a low and Greece in financial turmoil, there couldn’t be a more perfect time to visit the beautiful Greek island.
