Imagine your first morning in the Dominican Republic. You hop out of bed and throw open the curtains of your tree house. The rainforest canopy is just at your fingertips and you soak in the view of a rushing river below lush cacao and coffee trees.
You smell fresh morning dew and hear frogs and crickets chirping around you. You attend morning yoga before enjoying a homemade breakfast with ripe papaya, pineapple, hot chocolate made from locally harvested cacao, and fresh coffee.
As you eat and laugh with your fellow travelers turned friends, you realize life hasn’t felt this rich for a while. You have completely disconnected from the bustle of work life and your to-do’s at home. You are learning alongside people who inspire you. You savor how good it feels to be unplugged, and look forward to a day of workshops, bike riding, and dips in the waterfall and Caribbean sea.

Honing Your Soft Skills: Dig into exercises that will challenge you to take your active listening, empathy and compassion to a new level.
Meeting Like-Minded Leaders: Our Dominican trip always attracts incredible, heart-centered men and women who want to make a difference in the world.
Exploring Nature: Fly over the jungle canopy on a zip line, listen to the songs of frogs and crickets from your treehouse, have lunch at the beach and swim in a gorgeous waterfall.
Nights out in Santo Domingo: Our final two nights in the Dominican give you a chance to join the locals for some bachata and merengue! These dances are native to the island and this night out is always a highlight of the trip. We will attend an amazing outdoor concert held in the ruins of an old monastery.
Rooms at the Tree House Village are double occupancy, although single occupancy prices are available. In a double occupancy room, there is one single bed and one queen bed — both with mosquito nets. Each treehouse has a bathroom with a private toilet and shower. In 2019, the private showers were only cold water, while hot showers were available just a quick walk from the treehouses in the communal bathrooms. In 2020, we are hopeful they will have hot water in the private bathrooms. Mosquitos are not prevalent on the property, although we recommend travelers bring bug spray for off-site excursions and yoga.
We will provide a packing list, and recommend you bring a change of clothes for each day. Clothes can get damp in the tree house — especially when it rains!
We encourage you to participate 100% in what we have planned. We expect our travelers to be an unconditional “Yes!” because sometimes the experiences that make the biggest difference for us are the ones we least expect. We provide ample time in between workshops and activities for you to recharge, take a nap, or read a book on the beach. Our afternoon breaks are typically 3 – 5 hours!
When you register, we will send you a welcome packet complete with information about recommended flights, health and safety information, and a packing list.
You will lodge in the heart of La Zona Colonial in a 3- or 4-star hotel (depending on availability). La Zona Colonial is a UNESCO World Heritage Site full of incredible history, music, dancing, and cultural attractions. We stay double occupancy at a top-rated hotel in the neighborhood. Each room has air conditioning, private bathroom, and comfortable beds.
Flights from JFK currently range from $450 – $600.
