GOT QUESTIONS? WE’VE GOT ANSWERS!
What is the difference between the budget and luxury options?
In a word? Accommodations.
Hotel Indalo (budget option) is an awesome boutique hotel on the outskirts of Puerto Viejo. You can easily walk to restaurants, stores, and even the beach. It has a white, clean European feel (because the owners are from Spain) and even has air-conditioning, which is a luxury on this side of Costa Rica.
It includes: An extensive garden, terrace, free Wi-Fi, a desk, wardrobe, , and a private bathroom with shower.
It is a great budget hotel, because we do not hook our ladies with anything less than great!
Le Cameleon (luxury option) is the nicest hotel on the Southern Caribbean side of the island. It offers upscale beach accommodations within the tropical forest of Puerto Viejo, Limon. The 23 rooms sit around the pool, surrounded by lush tropical gardens, and across the street from its beach club.
All the rooms feature A/C, satellite TV, WiFi, rain shower, mini bar, phone, iPod, iPhone docking station, and Yes Rocher amenities.
Should you prefer to hang around the hotel, they offer private yoga classes, treatments in their ‘tree-house’ spa, Nunu gastronomic restaurant, lap pool and cool water Jacuzzi, reading/lounging areas surrounded by wildlife and, of course, the beautiful La Sula Sea Lounge with its day-beds, hammocks, lounge chairs, bar and restaurant service right on Cocles Beach.
So that sucks, right?
Look at the photo gallery above to get an idea of which option is right for you.
What happens when I put down my deposit?
Once you put down your deposit we will contact you, and you will pick out the week you want to join us, and the experience you want (budget or luxury).
Next, we will send you a contract, and set-up your payment plan. Once that is signed, you are in!
You can then expect an awesome little gift in the mail, because who doesn’t like presents?
We will then work with you over the next few months to set-up your tours and help you create the experience you want to have. Want a surfing lesson? A cooking class? A night tour through the rainforest? We will help you create the Costa Rican experience of your dreams. Whether you are choosing the budget or luxury option.
I'm not sure I can afford this...
Here is the deal. We tow the line between super-nice and super-affordable (our friends think we are selling our soul and first born) and the sooner you sign-up the better.
Basically, if you get your cute butt to San Jose, and bring money for food and souvenirs…you’re good.
Plus, if you sign-up early, you can set-up a four month payment plan to make it do-able.
So if you want to do this, let’s do it! No excuses!
What if I don't like the way I look in a swimsuit?
Kira talking here: I am not too excited about how I look in a swimsuit , but does that mean we should stop our lives and wait to do things we want to do? Not on my watch, hot pants.
Dude, this trip is all women, a wonderfully supportive atmosphere, and we could care less about your cellulite. Awesomeness doesn’t live in judgment and fear.
What's the difference between the retreat and single travel weeks?
Retreats have a few different goals.
a) Self-work – We spend a few hours each day in smart conversations (with some awesome coaching) about love, dating, and relationships. We’ll be talking about why you are not getting what you want in the world and how to start changing that.
b) Adventure – Afternoons are usually spent on tours exploring the best the area has to offer.
c) Foodie awesomeness – Tasting and experiencing food of the region is one of the best parts of these trips! Our lunches and dinners will be spent together having smart conversations about the day, laughing, and enjoying the best flavors over the country!
Ultimately, the retreats is much more of a group experience. You will be learning, exploring, relaxing, but also spending a good chunk of time working on yourself.
Singles travel weeks are a much looser, curated experience tailored around you.
You are on your own, but we’re there to help you plan your week, and we’ll be around if you have questions or need help with anything. If you’d like, you’ll have the chance to meet and bond with other single ladies at the same hotel for the week. Or you can really just make it all about you. The experience is completely up to you!
You will have the option to have some bigger conversations at a couple of shared meals (I mean, Kira IS a life coach…), but if you want the week to be about you, your book, and the location…that is totally up to you.
