We will take you to exotic places, inspire you, and provide comfort and professional service. We combine challenging, rewarding adventures with unique cultural experiences. We make a difference wherever we go - in the community and our environment. Our aim is to leave each journey with lifetime friendships and forever memories. 

SLA gives 5% of profits to charity.


We create three unique retreats per year guided by us personally. We take you to incredible locations personally vetted by us.


You'll leave rejuvenated, with added skills, feeling completely revitalized. We aim to create an experience you'll never forget!


We met in Cabo San Lucas in 1989 and were married in Dana Point, California. Now, 30 years later, we have 2 beautiful teenagers. Whether we're doing yoga, surfing, kiteboarding, tandem surfing,  mountain biking, or traveling... our fabulous adventure keeps growing every day! We want you to be a part of it.


In 2006, we built and opened Samana Chakra Boutique Retreat in Peru. In our 10 years running Samana Chakra, we met incredible guests who became friends. We shared life-changing adventures and experiences with our visitors. 

With our love to travel, hospitality experience, and desire to give back, we created Samana Legacy Adventures... the next evolution of our dream. We invite our dear friends and future dear friends to join us on this continuing journey.

Happiness belongs to you!

Johanna & Gary


With every adventure, we aim to make a positive difference wherever we go. So often as global fun-seekers, we end up visiting amazing places where we dive deep into the local community - getting to know our hosts and learning their culture.


Our goal is to go one step further than simply enjoying the experience. We give 5% of Samana Legacy Adventures profits to charity, to promote awareness and the preservation of natural lands. We wish to protect what 'we've come to enjoy.
