What our guests say about Fit & Fly Girl...
"I'm usually an Airbnb + food truck kind of traveler and while I workout, I'd certainly never list fitness as a hobby. I was a little bit nervous when I booked this retreat but I SO enjoyed myself and would recommend Fit & Fly Girl to anyone. The other women in my group were amaaaazing and Rebecca and her team removed all of the hassle and stress from travel. I didn't have to flag down taxis and try to communicate in broken Spanish! I didn't have to worry about the safety of the street meat I just bought for 7 pesos! I could just relax and enjoy myself! What a novel concept! ;)"

"Fit & Fly Girl Tulum was amazing! I came back feeling centered and extremely relaxed which is not an easy feat for me to achieve! Rebecca is a gifted leader and host; she has a way of making everyone feel taken care of and always has a warm, welcoming smile on her face. There is something magical about living right on the beach with a group of extraordinary women."

"Fit & Fly Girl's retreat to Uruguay was a truly amazing experience - not to be missed! My first ever retreat, I was apprehensive about going on a trip with ladies I didn't know and the somewhat 'unknown' destination. My worries were totally unwarranted. Uruguay is a total gem to be discovered and Fit & Fly Girl made it spectacular. The ladies on the retreat were all in a similar age group and great fun - as we said, "we found our people." The luxury villa Posada de Piedra was the perfect base, with beautiful rooms, cozy common areas and a fireplace, a luxurious pool and lounging area, full staff (who even do your washing) and private chef. The food was delicious (and healthy) with lots of superfoods, salads and fish, and also a traditional Uruguayan meat asado BBQ. The great mix of total body fitness, strength work and cardio using different locations of the villa and props made the twice daily workouts fun. Heavenly yoga with Isabella Channing at the Yoga Shack (also in the Hamptons) was the best yoga experience I have ever had. The balance between working out, free time and excursions was perfect also. The excursions were expertly selected and organized so that we got the best out of Uruguay - olive oil tasting, picnic and scenic bike ride in an olive grove, beach horse riding (galloping if you like), Uruguayan wine and cheese tasting (at the supremely beautiful and private Playa Vik), shopping at the boutiques in Jose Ignacio (the "Hamptons of South America"), surfing lessons, pool relaxation time and dinner at the best beach restaurant in the world, La Huella! And last but not least, the Uruguayan weather is sunny and warm, but not too hot. Thanks Rebecca, Ella and Fit & Fly Girl for making it happen in the best way possible. I hope to be back on another retreat next year!"

I recently returned from one of the best travel experiences I have ever had! (Not) dealing with a recent zero birthday and ready to just get away from reality for a bit, but not wanting to travel solo for a change, I was thrilled to come across Fit & Fly Girl in a Google search that encompassed food, wine, dance and Buenos Aires! And that was such a lucky find. From my first apprehensive enquiry (nervous about travelling with a bunch of strangers) I returned with friends for life and sore stomach muscles from more belly laughs than I’d had in a long time (oh and tango lessons and learning to play polo with a mallet in one hand and a malbec in the other also had something to do with it). Rebecca made the week seamless and incredible fun and was the perfect hostess. It was a perfect balance between seeing the sights, a fabulous hotel, experiencing all the city had to offer from two wheels to horseback, enjoying plenty of the finer things (especially the great dining experiences) and keeping the kilos at bay in the best way possible with Jennifer’s fabulous dance classes, cycling, yoga and of course, tango! Thank you Rebecca for making that zero birthday so fabulous and for a week I’ll always treasure. Your attention to detail, personal responses to every question and sunny disposition were perfect and you were a great travel buddy too. As were the rest of the great group of girls we had. I look forward to the next one somewhere just as fabulous as Buenos Aires.

"Fit & Fly Girl Buenos Aires had it all! Dancing, yoga, polo, cooking class, not to mention really immersing us in the culture. Visiting the Evita museum, touring the city by bike and eating several meals in locals' homes was priceless. All expertly executed with care & attention to detail by Rebecca, I am a Fit & Fly Girl for life!"

"Fit & Fly Girl Buenos Aires was the perfect gift for myself and I got much more out of it than I expected. I had an amazing time: yoga, tango, biking, shopping, new friends, new scene and even managed to squeeze in a night out dancing. I thought I would benefit from taking a break from my normal day, but mostly I was reminded of the importance of self-care, how much I love yoga, spoiling myself and being open to making new friends. Not only do I feel refreshed from all the lovely me-time, it has re-ignited my passion for movement and travel!"

"Making a vacation come together seamlessly in a country where I don't speak the language seems like a daunting and time-consuming task. Fit & Fly Girl came to my rescue with their incredible Costa Rica adventure! They planned and coordinated EVERYTHING. All I had to do was show up, relax and enjoy. I had a blast meeting new friends, learning to surf (a.k.a. falling off my surfboard over and over), horseback riding, hiking and kickstarting my summer workout plan all in one week. I will be traveling with Fit & Fly Girl again soon!"

"Before traveling with Fit & Fly Girl, I’d never attended a women's retreat and admittedly had my apprehensions. Rebecca anticipated my questions, providing all the information I would need to feel comfortable traveling to a foreign country with a group of women I'd never met. Once on the retreat, I was able to relax as everything had been carefully planned for me. The activities and schedule allowed me to do as much or as little as I liked. The villa was beautiful, and it was obvious that Fit & Fly Girl has an eye for putting together a vacation that appeals to the luxury traveler. I'm already planning my next retreat!"

"I absolutely loved Fit & Fly Girl Costa Rica. It was the perfect mix of fun activities and free time to explore on my own. I love to travel and have done a few solo trips but really loved going on a retreat with other like-minded women. I met and connected with great people while having the space to do my own thing if I wanted. Rebecca never made us feel pressured to do the activities which I really appreciated. The tours were top notch and everything flowed smoothly which allowed for a relaxing and fun vacation."

"Fit & Fly Girl Costa Rica was an amazing opportunity to renew the spirit and mind and energize the body! Daily, we had exciting and energetic fitness options. The excursions...zip lines, white water tubing, surfing lesson and a picnic on the beach served on surfboards are just a few of the fun activities there to choose from. Pampering at the spa with an array of treatments were second to none I've ever experienced. The cuisine at the villa was delicious and took the dietary needs of all the ladies in attendance. Five star accommodations and a top notch fitness instructor rounded out the week. Fit & Fly Girl is truly the place to be for the cutting edge of fitness vacations!"
