I’m worried I won’t know anyone if I go alone. Will I still have a good time?
Good time? You’ll have a GREAT time! Bold Betties’ members are some of the most inclusive and positive women you’ll ever meet anywhere! You might arrive alone but you’ll leave with brand new friends!
I’m not vegan and I don’t like eating plant-based meals.
Unfortunately, this experience might not be for you! All meals will be 100% vegan and plant based. Take it as a DETOX opportunity, your digestive system with thank you. This is part of the mission of Volcan Laguna and we’re excited to offer this to our members!
I’m not in great shape, is this trip for me?
One of the most beautiful aspects of yoga is how scalable it is to different skill levels. You don’t have to be a full on yogi for this trip and beginners are welcome!
All hikes are geared toward beginners! The longest hike will take you up a volcano but is still a very easy hike. This hike will take approximately 5 hours but will include breaks and a beautiful picnic spot for a leisurely lunch!
