Solfeggio’s Signature Educational Rainforest Hike
Learn about the amazing intricate web of life each of is a part of, from Jennifer Leigh Smith (AKA "Tree Jenny"), tropical forest expert and founder of Association of Community Carbon Trees (ACCT). ACCT, is a world-model for socially responsible reforestation. Solfeggio will donate $25 in each retreat participant’s name to support this amazing non-profit organization. Your $25 will plant a tree to help off-set the carbon dioxide generated by your air travel.
La Reina Cooperative Tour & Medicial Plant Class
Tree Jenny will escort us to the little village of La Reina, where a core group of ACCT’s hardest working members will give us a tour of their operation, and share a medicinal plants class. We’ll have an organic lunch straight from their farms, and they’ll crank up the trapiche and make us fresh cane juice full of vitamins and minerals. You’ll also have an opportunity to view their wonderful collection of Pre-Columbian artifacts all found in the area around their village.
"Join us in the ACCT rainforest tree nursery and get your hands in the dirt. Participate in activities to produce over 85 species of rainforest trees. Clean and prepare seeds, mix compost and fill tree bags with soil, transplant baby trees, weed and water young trees. Be part of a collaborative process to stop rainforest deforestation. As part of a purpose inspired lifestyle, giving back to the Earth creates balance!”

Right down the road from Tree Jenny, we will cool off in one of La Ceiba’s beautiful waterfalls.
Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary
Come tour Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary, where you will learn about and get to see
some of Costa Rica’s amazing wildlife. The wildlife sanctuary is a non-profit rescue and rehabilitation center with on-site veterinary clinic for sick, injured and orphaned wildlife. The staff releases as many animals as they possibly can, and provide lifetime care to those that cannot return to the wild. (Before our tour we’ll enjoy a lovely lunch at Villas Alturas with its gorgeous view of the Pacific South Coast.)
