Wonderful time! The resort was beautiful and there was enough flexibility to enjoy excursions, workouts and relaxing time. It was safe/easy to get around and the cost for excursions was very reasonable.

My first Trip Tribe was amazing and I can't wait to sign up for another one. I've always wanted to do a yoga retreat and have always wanted to go to Costa Rica. So this experience was once in a lifetime. I loved being active and healthy on vacation while discovering new places. I hope to do this once a year with my sister, Dawn. We are hoping to sign up for one in Tulum, Mexico.

This was the most unforgettable, life-changing trips I couldn't have even imagined in my dreams! I absolutely fell in love with this gorgeous, sustainable country, with the best of all worlds, the rain forest, the jungle, the most beautiful beaches, all with a government who protects their natural resources and allows no hunting of any kind. From the most kind and friendly people who also speak English, to the most beautiful natural playground, I am in awe of this culture and can hardly wait to go back! We faced our fears, had the most fun activities, and most gorgeous venue all to ourselves. THANK YOU and PURA VIDA!!!

My trip was awesome with Sara ( fabulous Yoga instructor) in Esterillos Este, Costa Rica and our activities were just fabulous with our 2 adventurous trips to the Rain Forest and Rain Forest hiking, zip lining, floating down the rapids, and repelling. Recommend Esterillos Este and the Encantada Ocean Cottages for everyone. Amazing time!!

Sometimes plans change. We get it. That's why Trip Tribe offers a full refund if you meet any of the following criteria: (a) Your trip is over 180 days away OR (b) You booked within the last 30 days and your trip is still over 90 days from the start date. If you do not meet any of these criteria, your booking is not eligible for a refund.


Trip Tribe requires only a deposit to hold your spot. You can pay your balance in as many $100+ or more installments until full payment is due!


Trip Tribe makes it easy for you and your friends to book a room together. All you need is their email address.


While you can always book a private room with your guest, if you select a shared room, you'll be able to request a roommate after you place your booking.


Booking a shared room is cheaper and way more fun than booking your own private room. We’ll be sure to match you with someone awesome.
