What is the VIVE Society?

What is the VIVE Society?

VIVE Society LLC is a Licensed Tour Company that hosts luxury, International Group Trips throughout the year. VIVE is also a Certified Travel Agency that creates custom Travel Itineraries for private groups in the United States and around the world.

The VIVE Society is a group of travelers that love the luxury lifestyle, aren’t afraid to visit the far ends of the globe, experience new cultures, party till the sun comes up and still find time for yoga & wellness in the midst of it all.

The VIVE Team understands that most people don’t have the time, resources or energy to plan exotic trips and often don’t know where to begin. Husband and wife team, Michelle & Nelson Ruiz, created the company with the “soul” intention to create once in a lifetime moments for travelers while making sure they feel well taken care of every step of the way.

We Retreat Different™️

Most Travel Companies simply add you into a “travel bundle” generated online by budget suppliers ( cheap, tacky hotel rooms and crappy flight itineraries! ) or choose to host their group trips at a retreat center where the center plans the trip and the organizers “just show up.” What sets VIVE apart is the customized planning done with love by Licensed Travel Advisors Michelle & Nelson Ruiz.

Whether you are a first time traveler or seasoned globe trotter … VIVE is guaranteed to take you to places you never thought possible. Join the family of like-minded travelers. Let’s start making your biggest travel goals come true together.


Meet Your Hosts

Michelle & Nelson Ruiz

Michelle Ruiz is an E-RYT500 Yoga Instructor who leads Teacher Trainings, large scale events and workshops in the state of Florida and beyond. Having traveled to over 22 countries, her passion is providing once in a life time experiences for others. She believes travel is our greatest teacher and the number one way to reconnect with ourselves when we feel we have lost our way. A life changing visit to West Africa at the age of 14 is what jump started her love for travel and she hasn’t stopped since.

After many years as a yoga teacher, this Global Goddess decided to intertwine her love for yoga and travel by becoming a certified Travel Agent through the Travel Institute. Soon after, she and her husband, Nelson, founded VIVE Society LLC .
​They have been creating luxury retreats that provide guests the opportunity to experience new cultures, spoil themselves with life’s luxuries and make lasting friendships since 2016.

​Michelle says that sharing the mindset & beauty of the Eastern world is truly the greatest gift she can pass on to her students and friends. You can read more about her here and on her personal website

​Nelson Ruiz is a former U.S. Marine. Having traveled to 23 countries and counting, we like to think of him as our bilingual bodyguard. He took a leap of faith at the age of 18, leaving Brooklyn , New York to explore the world. He says the cultures experienced and friends made along the way are what instilled in him a deep love for travel and the desire to provide the same opportunities to others. After meeting Nelson once, you will feel you have made a life long friend.

Together they lead retreats that involve cultural exploration, education, high quality yoga experiences, plenty of nightlife and moments you will hold in your heart for a life time.

Cultural Understanding

We believe that our world is a brighter place from living in each other’s shoes. Getting off the tourist path and interacting with locals is at the top of our priority list. Our hope is that each traveler returns home with a new found knowledge and love for the countries we visit.

Our vibe is judgement free. We have travelers of all ages and backgrounds join our trips. Once you are here, we consider you family!

Luxury Lifestyle

No retreat centers or dorm rooms here! We ONLY book 5 star Hotels for our retreats. This means you will have complete privacy during your travels as well as all the modern amenities that these hotels provide. We find it important to have a doctor on site, concierge service, laundry service, gym, pool, sauna, spa, free wifi and reliable transportation for every where you wish to go. And yes, champagne is ALWAYS involved!

Seamless Planning

Whether you are a first time traveler or seasoned explorer, we are here to take care of every last detail for you.

Once you’ve booked, our exclusive Traveler Dashboard and Mobile App allow you to customize your trip, keep track of flights, excursions, passport info and payments on your computer or mobile device.
