I can't imagine a better travel retreat than the two I've been on so far with HYCH — Costa Rica and Tuscany. I love traveling with smaller groups as well as the amount of free time we had to do things on our own. Nothing was ever rushed or exhausting. And cooking with Chef Matt is an experience no one should miss — I'll definitely go on all future retreats with them that I'm able to!

Finca Mia is an absolutely beautiful place to hold a retreat and Matt and Catharine are the perfect hosts — kind, attentive, and best of all, fun! This was the perfect way to experience Costa Rica for the first time, and now I know how to make hot sauce!

Cat and Matt are AMAZING! Fantastic communication at all times. I felt completely prepared and stress-free because I knew HYCH would be there to help with any issues I didn't anticipate that might have come up.

The Costa Rica retreat was a perfect blend of independent exploration and very fun activities. The hosts Catharine and Matt are the best. I felt cared for and safe the whole time.
