Join Gabrielle Roberts for 5 days of yoga, adventure, and the beautiful jungle in Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, Costa Rica. This will be a truly unforgettable experience with people from all over the world.
The Jungle Dreams Retreat 2024 will take place in the tropical jungle of Costa Rica's southern Caribbean coast and will be hosted by Gabrielle Roberts.
This retreat is an ideal place to disconnect from daily responsibilities and focus on personal wellness. There will be a day to completely unplug and disconnect from all things, really focusing on you.
