Join us at Casa Kismet in Nosara, Costa Rica

March 1 - 8, 2025



For 1 week, re-write what it is that you want from life and leave with a plan to start taking action.


When is the last time you really laughed OUT LOUD? Laughter is the fountain of youth and (and it's fun)


Learn to love yourself where you are NOW so you can start treating yourself the way you deserve to be treated.

Flip Flops & Hot Flashes

is a special retreat created for the woman who is navigating menopause and wants to feel seen, valiated and heard while she steps into the next chapter of her life.


Definition: An act or process of withdrawing especially from what is difficult, dangerous or disagreeable.

Women going through menopause, often feel isolated, abandoned and alone and as a result, they often "retreat" from others and the outside world.

This luxury retreat was created for you; the woman who does not feel understood or seen and desires to reconnect to what was once there so they can feel confident and whole again


Release all of the old stories in your head that you are not enough. This is your time to shed all of the things that are no longer serving you and keeping you stuck.

Menopause does NOT have to suck and you can feel better than you ever have when you abandon the idea that you need to "work hard" to achieve happiness and health.


Redefine how you are going to show up on your life and exist for the next 20, 30 or 40+ years. 

Menopause and midlife is an opportunity to do all of the things that you have always put off in order to care for everyone else.

Learn how changing the way you live, from the inside out, can create massive shifts for years to come.


Leave this retreat feeling refreshed, renewed and ready to take on the world because you have all the tools you need from here on out..

With new friendships, connections and an understanding of where you are and what you can do, the possibilities are endless!

Your Host - Sam

Samantha (Sam) Montpetit-Huynh has been in the health and fitness industry for over 2 decades, is known as Sam Core Trainer and developed the most comprehensive online health program for women going through menopause and midlife.

She is the co-host of the massively successful High Heels & Hot Flashes event in Toronto, Canada and this retreat is an extension of that incredible night.

Sam made her first trip to Costa Rica in March 2023 and fell in love!

The people, the food; but most importantly, the energy is something that "changed her" which was something that she didn't expect - especially in menopause!

Samantha has found herself again and now she wants to give women the same opportunity to change themselves so they can be the person that they want to be!! 🙏🏾❤️
