CONSIDER TRIP INSURANCE:
The best way to protect yourself from any unforeseen circumstance is to purchase trip insurance. There are many travel insurance companies out there. We recommend TRAVELGUARD, which offers a variety of travel insurances, including the option for a comprehensive “cancel for any reason” policy. If you cancel your retreat – for any reason – your airfare, hotel, retreat costs, etc. up until 48 hours prior to travel, will be covered. This comprehensive package is called the ” Gold Package Cancel for Any Reason” Policy”. You must contact Travelguard and purchase the policy within 15 days of buying your airline tickets or incurring any costs for any part of your travel. You can also just insure your air tickets. Travelguard can give you quotes for each scenario.

 

 

GENERAL INFORMATION & FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. What is the weather like in this part of Mexico?
The Central Pacific Coast of Mexico is surrounded by jungle and receives approximately 345 days of sunshine per year. Located on the same latitude as the Hawaiian Islands, the sub-tropical climate is quite similar to Hawaii’sf. Temperatures can reach 90 degrees during the summer, along with high humidity, but at night, the onshore breeze brings cool air that makes for pleasant sleeping conditions. The rainy season is June through October; however, August and September are considered the two “rainy” months. On average, September has 15 wet days per month, while January has only two. Rain usually doesn’t start until late in the afternoon, leaving most of the day free for outdoor activities. March, April, May, October and November are warm but comfortable (upper 70s to low 80s). December, January and February are usually comfortable (low to mid 70s) but can be chilly at night (low to mid 60s). June, July, August and September are hot (mid 80s to low 90s) and humid.

 

2. Do I need a VISA to enter Mexico?
You will need a CURRENT PASSPORT for your trip to Mexico. A Driver License is no longer a valid identification document for travel to Mexico. No vaccinations are required to enter the country. During the flight to Puerto Vallarta you will be given a document to fill out which you will then need to present to the immigration official upon your entry into Mexico. This document is your Travel Visa.

 

3. Do I need any shots before my visit?
No, immunizations are not required for this part of Mexico.

 

4. Will I need money and how do I get it converted?
Yes, you will need money for excursions, lunches or shopping in town In the town of Sayulita, U.S. Dollars or Mexican Pesos are much more widely accepted than credit cards or traveler checks. You can obtain pesos at home before your departure or upon arrival in Puerto Vallarta at the airport. There are also many ATMs in the town of Sayulita to acquire more cash if needed. If payment is made with a credit card a 5% processing fee will added to the total of your purchases.

 

5. Will there be cell service and/ or WIFI?
Great news… there are no phones, internet or fax at the retreat center!  You get to unplug completely! If you need to use a phone, internet, or fax you will need to go into the town of Sayulita which is 40 minute walk on beach or by car, 5 minutes. As far as cell service, it will depend on the phone you have and if it has the 1900 GSM frequency band. If you have this frequency band your phone will work in Mexico but you will need to check with your service provider about your specific phone and service. There is a cell tower in Sayulita with limited accessibility from certain places at the highest point on the property.

 

6. Is there laundry service?
Laundry service is available at an extra charge.

 

7. What is tipping etiquette in Mexico?
Tips for the kitchen, dining & housekeeping staff are not included in your trip price. The staff works hard to make your stay a pleasant and enjoyable one. If they have done a good job for you, we suggest that you budget $15 US per day/person or $100 US pp / per week. This will be shared amongst all the service staff. You may leave this with our manager at the end of your stay. Gratuities for the spa staff should be paid directly to them at the time of service. **ALL GRATUITIES MUST BE PAID IN CASH, EITHER U.S. DOLLARS OR MEXICAN PESOS**

 

8. What kind of power adapter is needed?
You do not need a power adaptor. There is no electricity in the cabanas. They are illuminated at night with oil lamps and candles. You will be unable to use any small electrical appliances like hair dryers, curling irons or razors. There are no fans or air conditioning in the cabanas. If you want to read at night, you will need to bring a book light with you. There is no outdoor lighting so you will need to carry a flashlight or use a headlamp at night. There is, however, electricity in the Yoga Pavilion and the Restaurant for recharging batteries. It is the same voltage as the United States so no converter is needed.

 

 9. Is the Water safe to drink?

The water from the faucets is safe for showering and other necessities but is not safe to drink. There is clean, fresh, purified water provided in each cabana for drinking, brushing your teeth and cleaning your contacts and contact cases. There is bottled water available in the restaurant each day. The ice used in the restaurant is also made from clean, fresh, purified water.
