Come renew and restore on a special island retreat! On a remote section of beautiful Cozumel island, we will meditate, practice some yoga and energy work and play in the sun. We will participate in so many fun activities that you are assured of trying something new! Think snorkeling on a private island, SCUBA diving (even if you are not certified!), ATV rides on the beach, surf lessons and some of the best meals you could ever imagine. So come play and rest and have some serious fun. We want you to relax, bond and some fun while enjoying all that Cozumel has to offer. You will certainly return back to your life invigorated and somewhat transformed by this magical setting and this extraordinary experience. You will experience a side of Cozumel that only locals have experienced. You will also have access to different energy modalities including meditation, yoga, and Mayan energy workshops. There are so many fun events planned, you are certain to make some new friends. We anticipate this to be a super fun, energizing, transformative and magical five days.
Ventanas al Mar is the only oceanfront ecofriendly hotel to be found on Cozumel´s unspoiled, rugged East Coast, about 18km from the city of San Miguel de Cozumel. This beautiful, intimate, family run hotel is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the Caribbean with its white powder beaches, unrestricted views of the ocean and a cool ocean breeze in every room. Enjoy the peace and tranquility whilst stargazing from your balcony at night.
Meals will be specially prepared for our group and will be healthy and consistent with the local fare.
The price for these 5 days will be $1,575 for double occupancy and $1,875 for a private room. There is a $250 non refundable deposit required to secure your spot. The balance will be due in full by March 1st. This price is inclusive of all inter island transport, lodging, food and activities. I am happy to offer payment plans if this makes this retreat more accessible for you. Please let me know if you would like to work this out. We also have a few options for 3-4 people in rooms which could keep costs down so please let me know!
This price includes everything for the five days that you will be doing (except alcohol)– lodging, delicious carefully prepared meals, Yoga, meditation, excursions, and evening activities. You will only be responsible for getting yourself to Cozumel and what you want to drink.
Meditation – start each day with a silent meditation on the beach. This guided meditation will enable you to start your day with clarity and a renewed sense of calm. This will set the stage for the transformational work we will do during the day.
Yoga– after meditation there will be a yoga class taught on the Palapa over looking the beach (or in a private room if the weather doesn't cooperate). The practice, the wind and the sea view will leave you invigorated and ready for a fun day!
Team events – There will be three excursions while on the Island: a private island boat trip, a day to go SCUBA diving (optional), and a day of water and land play - ATV tours, surfing and sunbathing.
Two nights we will have quiet, private dinner at the resorts and three of the nights we will have dinners in the town of San Miguel for the group.
There are many flights daily from most cities into Cancun. If you fly into Cancun you will need to take a ferry or a flight to Cozumel. I highly recommend flying into Cancun early and taking a Mayan Air flight from Cancun to Cozumel. The resort is a quick cab ride from the airport. You may be able to find flights directly to Cozumel so check this option first. This is preferable but is often more expensive. Please let me know if you need any help booking your travel.
