New Year's Resolution to Travel? NuMundo Can Help with That

By: Toby Israel


Welcome to 2019. This is the year of transformation. (As will be 2020. As, for that matter, was 2018. Transformation is a constant process of evolution with no precise timeline.)

The question is, are you ready to move from intention to action?


If your New Year’s resolutions have anything to do with travel, know that you’re not alone. Twenty-five percent of Americans wanted to travel more as they entered into 2018. As a species, we are continually evolving. This is a very good thing — if we can direct that collective growth toward positive impact, regeneration, and consciousness.

So you want to travel ethically, intentionally, sustainably, and cheap this year (all while growing as an individual and supporting regenerative global development)? You can do that.

NuMundo Impact Center Tuq Tu’Quilal

Enter NuMundo. The global network of transformational travelers and regenerative communities connects over 750 impact centers and hundreds of transformational experiences so that you can turn your dreams into action.

Our vision is a lot like your vision, and we’re ready to travel with you into 2019. Here’s how we can help you follow through with you New Year’s Resolutions:

  1. Personal Transformation. 

    Whether you want to explore healing with plant medicines, learn a new skill like permaculture design or natural building, or take your yoga practice to the next level, NuMundo can connect you. Browse our experience directory to choose the right journey for you. The opportunities for transformation are all there. You just have to answer the call.

  2. (Re)Design your Lifestyle.

    Ready to ditch the 9–5? Dreaming of full-time travel? Want to join a growing tribe of digital entrepreneurs and eco-nomads? Experience sustainable coworking and co-living in the Costa Rican jungle with the NuMundo NuLiving Experience. Or, get the tools you need to create your dream trip with our online Transformational Travel Bootcamp. The age of conscious lifestyle design is here, and we’re stepping into the portal. Want to come with us?

  3. Travel Free — or at least Cheap. 

    Don’t believe the rumors. Long-term travel actually doesn’t have to break the bank. With the proliferation of work-trades at permaculture farms, retreat centers, and ecovillages around the world, you can go just about anywhere and live free once you hit the ground. Exchange your skills, time, and energy for food and lodging with over 100 work-trades in NuMundo’s curated database. Spend less. Experience more. Travel deeper.

  4. Make Meaningful Connections. 

    With local communities. With like-minded eco-nomads. When you travel in the NuSphere, deep connection — with mission-aligned humans, with the land, and with yourself — comes with the territory. Browse the NuMundo center directory, find one (or several) impact center(s) that resonate with your 2019 intentions, and start connecting!

  5. Do better than “Leave No Trace.” 

    “Leave nothing but footprints, take nothing but sand,” and if you can, have a regenerative impact. Sustainable is no longer enough. As ethical, conscious travelers, we must seek to leave our world better off than when we entered it. Social and environmental impact alike, Numundo impact centers can support you to travel regeneratively. With transformational travel, living your dreams can be good for you and good for the earth.

New Year’s resolutions should be about doing and taking action, not idle promises and half-baked plans. Transformation — global and personal — will only come when we commit to it with everything we’ve got.

Are you ready to honor your potential, step into your purpose, and enter a year of acting (not just resolving) to transform?


NuMundo is the digital platform and community linking the global ecovillage movement. We are a database and a community of “impact centers” and meaningful, transformational experiences facilitating personal transformation and accelerating the development of regenerative living centers.
