Baja, Mexico: Take a Private Tropical Cruise and Enjoy All the Water Activities

Guuuuuurl book that trip! ‍♀️

2016 was a bit of a rough year for me and was filled with some big life changes. To say the least I was not in a good place. I happened to come across EC randomly on the app Meetup and quickly started checking out all the adventures. I had never been out of the country before so the Dominican trip immediately caught my eye. It took me a few days, but finally decided I needed to go on this trip.

At first I was a little intimidated; I was a solo traveler on my first trip out of the country meeting up with women whom I’ve never met. But, the minute I arrived at the hotel and was greeted by a very enthusiastic Nicki that intimidation went away. This is the exact trip that I needed, and let me just say you’ll walk away feeling like such a complete BADASS!! My favorite part was probably the canyoning trip through Ciguapa Falls. It was a challenge and I loved it. I was sore the next day, but it was the good kind of sore.

I left the Dominican with new friends and feeling so empowered. This was such a great start to my 2017, and made me completely forget about my crappy 2016. Since then I’ve been on the overnight backpacking workshop to red river gorge, and I can’t wait for more EC adventures in the future!

I just got back from Baja, and it was perfection, I literally wouldn’t change a thing, staying on a boat that felt like home, being around women that felt like family, it was truly amazing. I would recommend this trip to anyone who wants the perfect mix of adventure and relaxation.
