About Abbi Miller


The lodge in Playa Maderas is an off-the-grid eco-lodge powered by solar energy and supported by fresh local food suppliers for a low-impact experience. The setting, tropical climate, and lodge service and food are wonderful. The region boasts terrific biodiversity and wildlife with frequent visits by howler monkeys, sloths, and parrots. You will live for a week in thatched roof huts and the yoga deck (pictured) overlooks the Pacific Ocean.

Can't say enough great things about this trip. The setting was beautiful, the people were wonderful and the experience exceeded my expectations by far. Be aware that this is an eco-lodge, not a 5 star resort, so expect insects and other creatures in your cabanas. I brought my own yoga mat and beach towel, but the resort provided both so that wasn't necessary - bringing soap and shampoo, however, is.

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 240 days away OR (b) You booked within the last 30 days and your trip is still over 90 days from the start date. All payments except your deposit are refundable if your trip is more than 180 days away. 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. Your balance will be paid in automatic monthly 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.
