Where I have been

I have had quite a few people ask me where I have been so I thought it would be convenient if I just had it all written down in one place.  I started traveling at a young age but as an adult, I went through […]

Mexico 2019

Mexico 2019

Thank you for your interest in joining me in Mexico on this special adventure!!!

The part of this trip that excites me the most is our opportunity to be HANDS ON in sea turtle conservation, alongside passionate marine biologists and volunteers.  We will LITERALLY get to help release baby sea turtles into the ocean, watching them make their way across the beach towards the water and into their new lives. I’m telling you, it is INCREDIBLE!!! I had an opportunity to do this once before in Cozumel Mexico many years ago and literally cried like a baby I was so moved!

A little info about the property, it is located in Juluchuca, Mexico on 200 acres and includes an estuary, an Aztec archeological site, a turtle sanctuary, and a coastal forest and mangrove ecosystem which supports an array of stunning wildlife.
So in addition to releasing baby sea turtles into the ocean(in October), we have many other opportunities to immerse ourselves in nature AND history! 
I will also be leading daily yoga practice(optional) where we get to practice in their beautiful yoga shala overlooking the ocean, equipped with top of the line yoga supplies! We will be served delicious garden to table Mexican food, snacks and beverages(excluding alcohol and smoothies) all INCLUDED in the price! We also have direct beach access and access to the beach front swimming pool. We can do as little or as much as our hearts desire! 

ALSO included in the price are a heart opening cacao ceremony OR temazcal (traditional sweat lodge) ceremony based on availability*, beautiful accommodations, WiFi in common areas, roundtrip ground transfers to/from the airport(ZIH), ALL taxes & tips at the resort AND a donation to the turtle sanctuary.  

Pretty great right?!?! 😀

• International airfare 

• Travel insurance(required)

• Passports and visas if needed or not up to date

• The child rate is $30/per night less for children 5-17 years old and children under 5 years old are free! 🙂 The total discount will be deducted from the final payment. $120 + $45(for cacao ceremony) for October’s 2019 trip & $180 + $45(for cacao ceremony) for the June 2020 trip.

• *If you are traveling with a child, you have two options regarding the included cacao/temazcal ceremony. You can choose to opt out of the ceremony(children are not permitted) and use your $45 credit towards another service or you are welcome to let you child hang out with me and my daughter for the duration of the ceremony, as I will not be participating in order to help provide complementary(informal) “childcare” to retreat members who are traveling with children and wish to participate in the special ceremony. The resort also offers formal childcare with sufficient notice for an additional fee. 

PHEW! That’s A LOT of information!!! 

Now who’s coming with us?!?! 

This could be you
Fresh & delicious farm to table meals
