Giving Thanks and Looking Ahead: Winter 2016 with Rebecca in Central America

It’s time to start living the life you’ve imagined! There is still time to join us this year for any part of the journey, or follow along on the blog and Facebook to keep track of the adventure.

We will start our journey in the peaceful mountain town of Orosi, Costa Rica. There we will work with Montaña Linda Language School and Guest House. The list of amazing things to do while in this quiet, off-the-beaten path pueblo are endless. Enjoy the cowboy atmosphere, tour coffee plantations, relax in the local hot springs, hike the mountain to Nano’s waterfall, AND take advantage of the wonderful Spanish language courses offered by Montaña Linda.

We leave Orosi and pause for a not-to-be-missed walk about of Lankester Botanical Gardens, on our way to the southern beach town of Uvita. In Uvita we will stay at the Flutterby Hostel and Guest House and collaborate with Lura Shapteau of Bienestar Uvita Yoga Shala. (Bienestar is the Spanish work for wellness.) We look forward to this new partnership and opportunities for sustainable yoga wellness.

A side trip on this year’s Costa Rica adventure will take us into Nicaragua to explore this developing eco-wellness destination in search of future possibilities for work/trade and travel. In Granada, Nicaragua we will be visiting Casa Lucia Boutique Hotel and Pure Gym, Spa and Yoga.

Why not explore your passions? Options are easy and endless. Throughout every Holistic Journey’s eco-wellness adventure are ample opportunities to explore sustainable food and herbs, culture and music, as well as birds and nature’s beauty.  One of our major collaborators of the last ten years is Sunny Costa Rica Travel / Tropical Feathers, offering fantastic birding and natural history experiences. See below for a guided tour of birding hot-spots in Costa Rica


The second half of our wellness adventure will take place in sunny Belize. We will be joining Cotton Tree Lodge again this year for another fabulous winter season of tours (explore reefs, jungle, archaeological sites and more!), yoga, exceptional gourmet meals, and quality hammock time.

We are so grateful for the opportunity to return again to this wonderfully diverse and magical part of the planet to spend time with friends old and new. Each year the experience becomes more rich and eye-opening. Our network of partners is growing every season. Future trips may include adventures in Panama, Cuba and Greece. Be and Be Well!
