Our Journey

"The abundance of La Fortuna, Costa Rica is one of the most beautiful and healing places I've ever visited in my life. I always thought I was a die-hard beach girl, but I kept hearing about this magical town up in the mountains. Mother Nature offered me Her gifts when my soul's thirst for healing needed to be quenched the most, and for that I am so eternally grateful. In 2016, I came to Costa Rica in pursuit of my own healing. I was ravaged by stress. I wasn't honouring my gifts as a naturally empathetic person. I didn't have healthy boundaries in my life. What unfolded was a magical adventure that spanned many months, one where I simply allowed my intuition to guide me.

On January 1st, 2017, I brought myself to the volcanic hot springs of La Fortuna and spent New Years Day soaking in the healing waters, manifesting a new beginning for myself. Ever since then, I have returned to La Fortuna annually on my own inner pilgrimage, to give myself sacred time to heal and recharge. This place fills up my batteries like nothing else I've ever experienced, and it would be a dream to experience this special place with you.

In January 2019 while in La Fortuna, I booked a Reiki healing with Reya of La Fortuna Wellness. Instantly I felt an other-worldly calming presence emanating from her being and knew she was special. We shared a deep soul sisterhood connection during our time together, and there is no one else I'd want to co-guide this journey with than Reya."

- Becca


"I moved to Costa Rica in 2012 and started a deep journey of healing and awakening into myself. After traveling all over Costa Rica, I kept being called to visit La Fortuna. I fell in love immediately and permanently moved here 1 week later. I was captivated by the energy from the primary rainforest stretching over the mountains, creating the 2 volcanos Cerro Chato and Arenal.

With the largest lake in Costa Rica, 150ft waterfall, and natural hot springs, there was no better place to call home! I opened up La Fortuna Wellness and started creating a global wellness community.

Wanting to connect deeper with my Costa Rican community, I designed Niñas Aventureras in 2017, a local camp for young girls to experience adventure, art, culture and wellness. In 2019, I had the opportunity to meet a talented and inspiring soul sister. Becca and I immediately clicked and knew our joined paths could create endless opportunities for our fellow sisters to heal and rise together in this journey."
