Last year for New Years, a small group of us traveled to Punta Mona, an eco-village situated on both primary Costa Rican rainforest and Atlantic beach front.

We spent the week hiking through untouched primary rainforest, eating incredible home-cooked meals prepared directly from the land, learning about indigenous wisdom and culture, participating in ceremony, swimming by day, dancing at night, watching the moon rise over the sea, eating fruits directly off the trees, bathing in mud from the riverbed, singing and playing instruments around the fire, and laughing with new friends.

Perhaps the best part was meeting the crew of people who make Punta Mona possible. People with big hearts, deep laughs, and open minds, who have traveled the world and share adventures from all its corners. To be honest, the hardest thing about leaving Punta Mona was saying goodbye to them. So when Nic, Devin, and Cassandra said they wanted to have us for New Years again, and shared their ambitious vision of co-curating an experience with us and our closest friends... we realized we had no choice but to say YES! 

Our hope is that by sharing this experience with our friends and family, we will strengthen bonds and hone our intentions to have a greater impact on our planet. In other words, we don't see this is a hedonistic escape from reality, but rather as a way to become more in touch with our reality–particularly Mother Nature whose beauty and love is easy to miss in the cities and desert.

If you come with us  on this adventure, we are confident that it will be a transformative experience and that we’ll return home with an expanded love of nature and a rejuvenated passion to bring our species and our planet into a more harmonious relationship.
