Passport/Travel Requirements
  • A valid passport (good through at least 6 months of your travel dates) is required to enter Costa Rica. (Typically no visa is required for US/Canadian/EU citizens for stays of less than 30 days).

(Note: Any participants with pre-existing medical conditions or those over the age of 60 are generally required to obtain clearance from a medical professional prior to participating on this or any Mojo Active Adventure).

No prior experience needed, just a willingness to have fun and go for it! We’ll be in great hands — our expert outfitters are pioneers of the sport in Costa Rica.

Afterwards, enjoy a delicious, authentic Costa Rican lunch then we’ll drive a short 15 minutes to discover the ancient secrets of chocolate from its discovery and use in Costa Rica to the processing we know today. This will be a hands on experience where you will participate in the harvesting of the fruit cacao, the drying and hand grinding of the seeds. We’ll make our own delicious chocolate drink and taste the organic chocolate the farm produces. A truly decadent reward after an adventure-filled day!

I recently returned from the most exciting adventure of my life! Mojo puts together an A+ tour with outstanding and trustworthy outfitters for the thrilling parts of the trip. I recommend anyone to put your trust and faith into one of these active adventures.
Truly a 5 star trip for all ladies willing to step out of their comfort zone and challenge themselves and learn about new cultures. Stay in 5 star resorts and pamper yourself a bit as well.
Don’t miss out! Sign up soon. These trips are in high demand. I’m already on the list for Iceland!!!

If you are a woman who needs to get away from either routine or a stressful life, and you are ready to have fun, some adventure, some culture, open to meet exciting different ladies… to some times step out your comfort zone and others to connect with the side of you which busy life takes away… Molly, the founder of Mojo Active Adventures, is your contact. I personally have done two trips (Iceland and Costa Rica). From luxurious stays to breath taking waterfalls. From iceberg hiking to rappelling and zip lining with incredible views. Horse back riding and SPA treatments. Meeting other wonderful women and sharing the experiences all together. Spectacular dinners and the tastes of the local farmers and home made meals (hands on!). The taste of wonderful fresh made chocolate. Not enough time to write all the small and big things that make Mojo Active Adventures my way of travel at least once a year. Small groups which makes it even more memorable. The only thing you need to do is pack (list provided by Molly) and bring your passport! The rest is being taking care of…. what else can you ask for?!!!
Thank you MOLLY

“My tribe of beautiful, strong, kind, adventurous, funny women. There is something about a #mojoactiveadventures trip that bonds you to each other…
You leave the trip with new sisters, having experienced things together you will never forget. Part luxury, part summer camp, and part educational, you come back a better person. Pampered, exhilarated, and with a new appreciation for people so vastly different than yourself.
I cannot wait to travel with these women again. And in the meantime I know they have my back. Re-entry is hard, but we come back renewed to be the best wives, mothers, sisters, and business women we can be. Until next time my sisters.”
