When purchasing your flights, the closest airport is Cancun International Airport (airport code CUN).
There are many options for arriving to the retreat, including by airport taxi, shuttle or bus. We recommend arriving in the day as prices are more reasonable and either paying your taxi service inside the airport or online (e.g., via booking.com). Once you have booked your retreat, you’ll receive more information and guidance. Airport transfer fees are your responsibility.
If you are traveling from outside Mexico, you will require a valid passport. At the time of writing Mexican authorities do not require a minimum period of validity but please ensure that your passport does not expire during the length of your stay. We do recommend having a passport that is valid for at least 6 months beyond your departure date.
Mexico is one of the most visited countries in the world and is generally a safe place for tourists to visit if you stay within safe areas and your resort. However, at the time of writing, the US government advises tourists to “Exercise Increased Caution When Traveling to Quintana Roo due to crime” so it is important to take common sense precautions against crime.
At the time of writing, there are no restrictions to enter Mexico and no requirement to carry a COVID test or quarantine on arrival. However, it is mandatory to register on the Mexico Vuela Seguro Platform before boarding and to show the QR code at the arrival airport. Mexico works on a traffic light system of COVID restrictions by state/City. Currently, Quintana Roo is in green traffic light, which means that people can go out without restrictions whilst using common methods of precaution and prevention and some shops and indoor locations still require the use of masks. For up-to-date information see https://embamex.sre.gob.mx/suiza/index.php/turismo/covid-19/english and for further COVID advice or medical attention you can contact the Mexican Ministry of Health’s COVID-19 hotline on 800 0044 800.
Yes, it is essential to purchase a comprehensive travel/medical insurance before your departure.
We will be there to support you with any medical needs if you fall ill, including natural medicine. There are pharmacies, general doctors and hospitals.
We recommend arriving the day before the first retreat day so you can settle in and become acquainted with the space.
If you want to arrive a few days before the retreat to adjust to the time zone, climate and explore the local area.
We recommend staying at OMA until Sunday the 21st and then traveling home or to do more exploration.
Please book your own accommodations at our retreat center, OMA.
January is a great month to visit Cancun as the weather is generally settled, dry and not excessively hot. But it is still generally very warm with average daily highs of 83°F.
Please bring a reusable water bottle and refill with filtered water. The water in Mexico is unsafe for tourists to drink or brush teeth unfiltered.
The easiest way to access money in Mexico is via the ATM (at the airport or in Cancun) or to bring Mexican pesos with you or exchange cash at the airport, bank or authorized money exchangers. Banking hours are usually from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm from Monday to Friday and some open 9:00am to 2:00 pm Saturday.
Please be sure to exchange enough money for your first few days as there are no ATM’s close to the resort and make sure to travel with sufficient funds in your bank account to cover your stay. Remember, you will need enough money to cover travel to the resort. However, American Dollars are also widely accepted in Mexico.
Prior to your trip, please tell your bank and credit card companies the dates that you will be in Mexico, as they may cut off your funds for fraud protection if they don’t know you are using your cards in a foreign country.
Many stores only accept cash and there are no ATMs in walking distance of the resort. Accommodation, drinking water and most meals are already covered within the price of the retreat so you will just need cash for dining with your new friends on one or two occasions, shopping, extra activities and airport transport.
