About our partner, Sister Surf & Yoga Retreat:

These retreats were started by three best friends and sisters who share a passion for the ocean, for surf,  yoga, and healthy happy lives. Chelsea, Coco and Marjie grew up in the Virgin Islands where they were engaged in a healthy lifestyle at a very young age. They learned the importance of eating fresh local foods as well as taking care of the body through massage, yoga, and ocean activities. Not to mention the importance of bare feet in the sand, plenty of hammock time, and a smile on your face! Natural born water babies, the girls quickly developed a love of surfing. As they grew up, their passion for surf evolved and has taken them all around the world living in places lik Hawaii, Puerto Rico and of course Costa Rica in search of great waves and 'Pura Vida.'

Together, all three sisters moved to Australia to study Sports Management, Surf Studies. It was there where the Sister Surf & Yoga Retreat was born. This retreat is a perfect blend of each of their talents, massage, yoga, art, all bound together by their incredible love of surfing. You can find out more about the skills and passions of each sister here

Travel Insurance
Trip protection-style travel insurance that includes travel medical coverage is required for all trips with Traverse. The coverage must have a minimum $200,000 of medical coverage and include injury, medical, evacuation, and repatriation. Most domestic US health insurance plans do not cover international travel claims or provide a global network of contracted doctors and facilities. We want to make sure you are covered in case of an emergency or non-emergency illness or injury while abroad. Trip protection coverage protects the investment of your trip, including benefits for items such as trip interruption, trip cancellation, delays, baggage and personal effects, and more. We do not have a required coverage amount, but typically coverage is based on your trip costs. We partner with Wanderwell, a B-Corp Certified provider who can offer both Travel Medical and Trip Protection. If you choose to purchase through Wanderwell, you can buy the trip protection directly from our Traverse Journeys partner page provided in your Welcome Pack, and a portion of your purchase will be donated to WeForest through 1% For the Planet to aid with carbon offset for your trip. With Wanderwell, the TripProtector Classic and TripProtector Preferred plans meet our minimum requirements for coverage. Once insurance is obtained, a copy must be sent to Traverse. Failure to provide proof of insurance within 30 days of booking will result in trip booking suspension until proof of insurance has been provided.
