Do you wish to become the author and creator of your own story, so you can heal, reclaim your power, and discover your authentic self after breast cancer? If so, look no more! Feel inspired, empowered, and supported to live a great story by joining your sisters of strength on this incredible adventure of a lifetime in Baja. Snorkel blue lagoons, swim with sea lions, refresh yourself in meditation and restore yourself with yoga on Baja’s beaches in sunny Mexico on the Sea of Cortez with AdventureWomen and the iRise Above Foundation!*
You’ll touch down in San Jose del Cabo, Mexico, and head to Los Colibris Casitas in heavenly seaside Todos Santos. Set high on a hill, this beautiful property features airy rooms with breathtaking ocean views, while its terraced landscapes and quiet spaces reach all the way down to the shoreline. Refresh and de-stress the AdventureWomen way by sharing the perfect combination of pampering, mouth-watering meals, and active outdoor adventure with your fellow iRise Above companions who are as enthusiastic about exploring Baja as you are! Start off your adventure with a grounded meditation session with Sandra, your wellness coach, who will be traveling with you throughout your journey this week. In the evening, celebrate the flavors of Mexico with a spectacular welcome dinner as you get to know the other iRise Above women in our group.
Your first full day of Baja fun begins with an early morning restorative yoga class on the sky deck where ocean views surround you. The rest of your day includes a horseback ride over the pristine beaches of Todos Santos. After your horseback exploration, head to the beach for surfing lessons with the pros on Playa Los Cerritos, one of the best surf breaks in Baja. Don’t worry if you’ve never tried surfing before! Our talented surfing instructors will help launch you in the calm waters of Playa Los Cerritos. Later, you’ll round out the day with an evening meditation class with Sandra.
Isla Espiritu Santo
Snorkeling with sea lions, swimming, kayaking, and paddleboarding await you on Isla Espiritu Santo, an island in the Gulf of California reserved exclusively for AdventureWomen to provide a home base for outdoor fun and a secluded experience on the beach. Surrounded by the cerulean Sea of Cortez, you and your new friends can hike the cliffs, kayak the protected blue waters, and master the stand-up paddleboard, then wind down at night counting the millions of vibrant stars that sparkle overhead. Then, for some real undersea magic, try swimming and snorkeling with Baja’s inquisitive, friendly, and playful sea lions. You are likely to have a “nose-to-nose” encounter with these fun fellows so make sure to bring your underwater camera!
Connect with your body, mind, and spirit while on Isla Espiritu with morning restorative yoga sessions, alongside your sisters of strength. Discover the power of intuition medicine which focuses on the balance of energy and emotion within and take part in the ancient tradition of the cacao ceremony that supports healing.
Return to Todos Santos for a final Baja sunset and an exquisite final iRise Above group dinner where you and your new friends will dine on food that you prepare yourselves during a festive Mexican cooking class. Learn to make the perfect margarita and celebrate this amazing trip to the soothing and warm beaches of Mexico.
From hiking to paddle boarding, surfing to snorkeling with sea lions, glamping to Mexican cooking classes, and connecting with your iRise Above sisters of strength, this is a tropical adventure in Mexico you’ll always remember with a smile.
