Testimonials from Previous Experience Attendees:

Julie Ross Godar

My Negril, Jamaica JOZU itinerary was so thoughtfully chosen that I came home feeling really connected to the place and the people I met. I’ll never forget drinking wine with inspiring local businesswomen, swimming with new friends in turquoise water lit orange by the sunset, and our entire JOZU group dressing in white for dinner. 

Everything was so well organized that I was never rushed, and I felt safe and so cared for throughout my trip. From instructions on the best way to get through customs (in Jamaica, a big smile and the word “miss” go a long way) to a sweet birthday surprise for one of the women in our group, my JOZU experience showed a unique depth—both of knowledge and of feeling.


Jennifer Selinger YOGA

My experience with the JOZU crew will forever help shape my travels and connect me to other world travelers with similar interests and passions. 

During the JOZU Jamaica Experience each day was a new life changing experience. The people I’ve met, the excursions, the food, the surprise gifts and connections I’ve made locally has been one of the most memorable adventures I’ve ever been on. 

When it comes to traveling, the location and activities set a tone on how the trip plays out, but for me, it’s not just about the location and activities, it’s about the people - The community.

The JOZU team were amazing bringing inspiring, powerful, traveling women together to create a community has made my trip that much more special. What an honour to be part of such an empowering movement. Thank you JOZU. 

Jozu’s biggest fan,
