      About this trip

      Travel with friends or make new ones here - solo travelers welcome!


      Imagine this…  You start your New Year in beautiful and incredibly biodiverse Costa Rica - the perfect combination of adventure and serenity. Wake up to the sun peeking through the lush green jungle trees and the sound of chirping birds and playful howler monkeys. Take a short walk to the beach for an early morning swim in the warm Caribbean Sea or relax in a hammock before enjoying a rejuvenating morning yoga session and a fresh, delicious breakfast prepared specially for you by our own professional chef. 


      Join Brooke and Jodye for 7 days and 6 nights in paradise to kick off the year with the tropical adventure you’ve been craving and the rest and relaxation you deserve. You’ll spend the week with like-minded people creating a vision for 2025. You’ll leave feeling connected to both yourself and your new-found community. 


      Your week in paradise includes …

      🧘🏼‍♂️ Group yoga practices and meditations to move your body and calm your mind. 

      🍉 Breakfast, lunch and dinner each day (we are happy to accommodate allergies and special diets!)

      🐠 Group snorkeling excursion through warm, crystal clear water to explore coral reefs and colorful marine life. 

      🍫 Visit the local indigenous Bri Bri village where we learn how to make chocolate followed by a traditional lunch.

      🦥 Group walk through the lush rainforest in nearby Cahuita National Park with a naturalist to spot sloths and other wildlife. 

      🌺 Hike to the BriBri Waterfall, swim beneath the cascading falls and in the calm pool beneath. 

      🦎 Workshops by Jodye and Brooke to help you step powerfully into 2025. 


      Spend your down-time connecting with the group or enjoy quality time with yourself.  Add on a luxurious on-site massage, relax by the pool, or wander around the beautiful retreat-center grounds landscaped with jungle trees and native Caribbean flowers.

      What an absolutely breathtaking, calming, blissful, relaxing and enjoyable experience through and through. Brooke and Jodye really know how to take care of you - especially with all of the unpredictable things that come with travel (missing flights, shuttles, etc)! They were so communicative, informative and organized when it came to having all the information necessary for planning. They immediately helped us book a hotel in San Jose our first night in Costa Rica after we missed our flight from Miami to Costa Rica after running all the way across the airport terminal. And a new shuttle for the next day! On top of that, Casa Firefly was the perfect safe haven away and an environment to foster growth through all the workshops included. The staff was so welcoming and food was absolutely delicious. The meal selections and cost were at a very good price. The connections made while meeting people from all different areas really were the icing, filling and glue to the cake itself of this trip! And together we all got to experiencing the wonders of this beautiful location. I will always treasure this unforgettable experience and can't wait to travel with Jodye and Brooke again!

      While I'm a regular global traveler, this was my first retreat/yoga retreat/organized group travel experience, and it far exceeded my expectations. Jodye and Brooke are so good at what they do. They are both incredibly organized and thoughtful individuals but they also go with the flow --- these are necessary skills when traveling and it really set a peaceful tone for me. The experience was equally organized yet flexible, adventurous yet relaxing and rejuvenating, curated yet tailored to the experience I personally wanted to have. Just a few of the things I loved about this retreat: a print-out itinerary (everything optional!) upon arrival with additional information about add-on opportunities, the fact that they checked in regularly with the group to see how folks felt about doing different activities and also reiterated regularly that everything was optional, and the opportunities to do fun add-ons or just chill, traveling to a lesser-known/less touristy part of the country. Jodye and Brooke also planned intentional mindfulness exercises that made the experience transformative. It is really hard to describe a retreat with Jodye and Brooke; all I can say is JUST GO FOR IT. You will not be sorry you said yes. In short, it was an incredible experience and I cannot wait to travel with them again.

      What a great way to end 2023 and kick off 2024. I met a fantastic group of yoga minded people to explore Costa Rica with. The activities had a good balance of touring and time to relax at the resort. I appreciated always having a choice that fitted with what I needed. Excellent food and beautiful surroundings! Highly recommend Casa Firefly and Jodye & Brooke organized yoga retreat!
