DO I NEED A PASSPORT TO TRAVEL TO MEXICO? All US citizens need a passport for entry into Mexico. When you book, please double check the expiration date on your passport!
WHERE DO I FLY INTO? The nearest airport on the Baja peninsula is Cabo San Lucas International (SJD).
CAN I FLY SEPARATELY FROM THE REST OF THE GROUP? IF SO, HOW DO I GET TO THE RETREAT FROM THE AIRPORT? We do ask that you arrange your own flight. We encourage you to take the same flight as our group, but understand this isn't always possible. Travel to and from the airport is included in the retreat price. If you can meet us in Cabo San Lucas Airport (SJD) when our group flight arrives, you may travel with the group to Todos Santos. Should you be arriving at another time or should you want to arrange your own private transport through the hotel please contact Chris at firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHAT KIND OF CLOTHES DO I NEED? See the typical weather patterns below, and pack accordingly. Please note that there will be laundry service available, so please don’t worry about being stuck with dirty active wear throughout the retreat.
WHAT WILL THE WEATHER BE LIKE? February is filled with spring sun, a perfect escape from the frigid temps plaguing NYC at that time! The weather will typically be in the mid 80s during the day, and will dip into the low to mid 60s during the night. There is moderate humidity during this time of year, with little to no likelihood of precipitation... pack your sunscreen. ;)
WILL I HAVE FREE TIME? Yes, there will be plenty of time to relax on the beach, grab a surf board and enjoy the waves, or explore all that the beautiful town of Todos Santos has to offer. All afternoons are left open for you to partake in some of the workshops or activities that are offered, or simply opt-out and do your own thing. A shuttle is offered at your disposal should you want to be dropped off somewhere, or grab one of the many beach cruisers and pedal your way around town!
HOW MANY STUDENTS ARE PART OF THE RETREAT? Based on the previous trips, roughly 12-15 students sign on for the trip, and at least three Yoga Vida staff members accompany them. We will cap this retreat at 15 people to ensure that the proper attention be given to each guest!
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE FEE? ARE ALL MEALS INCLUDED? The fee includes ALL breakfasts and dinners, but lunches will be on your own (during free time scheduled). The included meals are all healthy and are primarily sourced from organic farms in and around Todos Santos. We are happy to accommodate your dietary restrictions as well (ie. gluten allergy, vegetarian, etc). There is also a break-out of what is included in the retreat cost on our website, as well as a list of activities available at additional cost to you. ATMs are available for your use - it is recommended to alert your bank that you will be traveling internationally.
I WOULD LIKE TO ATTEND THE RETREAT BUT DON'T PRACTICE YOGA. CAN I COME ANYWAY? Absolutely! The teacher on staff (Rebecca Hajek) will be able to accommodate a beginner. You always have the option of passing on an asana class or workshop as well.
IF I'M UNABLE TO ATTEND WILL I GET A REFUND? Full payment secures your spot. Any cancellations requested more than 30 days prior to the retreat lose $250 processing fee only. Any cancellations requested 16-30 days prior to the retreat lose 50% of the cost of the retreat. Any cancellations requested within 15 days of the start of the retreat are non-refundable and non transferable. All payments can be made online.
