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.

Important Note: We have arranged shuttles to transport guests from San Jose to our retreat property in Cahuita. The last shuttle leaves San Jose at 2:00 pm on December 29th. Please arrange your flights to arrive either before 1:00 PM on December 29th, or arrive on December 28th.
If you choose to arrive on December 28th, we will help you arrange a hotel room near the airport and transportation to the shuttle.
You might also choose to take the short local Sansa flight from San Jose to Limon for an additional cost, instead of the shuttle.
Questions about booking your flights? We are happy to help! We know booking flights can be daunting, and are happy to help in any way we can!
