Greetings! I’m Michelle, and I am thrilled at the prospect of spending a few transformative days in this journey with you.

As an entrepreneur and proud mother of two, I’ve personally navigated the delicate dance of achieving work-life balance while nurturing my insatiable wanderlust. Over the past two decades, my heart has been drawn to the enchanting landscapes of Costa Rica, and it brings me immense joy to share my wealth of knowledge and experiences with you.

The allure of this magical place is bound to leave you breathless—in the most delightful way possible. Together, we’ll embark on a journey to refresh and replenish ourselves, returning to our lives with a newfound sense of transformation and the readiness to conquer all our dreams. I’m excited to be your guide on this uplifting adventure, and I can’t wait to witness the metamorphosis that awaits us in Costa Rica…and beyond!
