Costa Rica’s very first Black girl-owned travel agency has added an tour aimed at featuring visitors the excellent introduction to Afro-Latin lifestyle.

Soul Existence Journey additional a 6-working day journey to Puerto Viejo that aims to immerse travelers in the Afro-Costa Rican tradition.

“A ton of our other excursions allow people to go to various sites, but with this one, it’s excellent if you really don’t have a lot of time, but you want to see the Caribbean side,” Sadie Jordan, the operator of Soul Life Journey, told Travel Noire.

“This is a good way to stay set in a single space all whilst being all-around the attractive society of the Afro-Costa Rican people today.”

The tour itinerary usually takes vacationers to intimate settings organized to deliver a very well-rounded see of Afro-Latina tradition in Costa Rica. Things to do involve an Afro-Caribbean farm-to-desk encounter, an indigenous chocolate-producing encounter, and a waterfall hike.

By day 4, travelers indulge in a entire day at Cahuita Countrywide Park and a snorkel tour. On the last day, tourists have the alternative to stop by Punta Uva for a kayaking tour.

Jordan was motivated to launch her company immediately after noticing a absence of representation on the Caribbean coast of Limón.

“There was a void in the vacation field. I am Afro-Latina. My mom is considered mestiza and my dad is African American,” she explained. “Growing up in the states, I was surrounded by a whole lot of Dominicans and Puerto Ricans, and I felt my spouse and children was one particular of couple of households that knew about Afro-Costa Rican lifestyle.”

“People realized about so lots of areas in Latin America, but quite a few men and women didn’t know about the Afro-Latino society in Costa Rica.”

Jordan’s purpose is to offer a perfectly-curated experience to those people fatigued of “playing detective” when on the lookout to knowledge Black-pleasant vacation experiences.

“I designed Soul Life Travel to display Black and brown people our cultures. A large amount of things link us, regardless of whether it be our cuisine or how our mama’s throw down in the kitchen, and so numerous ordeals,” she explained.
