The Enlightenment & Evolution Retreat is unlike any other on the planet—connected and beautiful, a true retreat in every sense of the word. Step away from the demands of daily life, learn to awaken the ‘Inner Organic Technology’ that slumbers within you, and discover your soul’s purpose.

But first…before landing on the white sand beach, amidst the gentle breeze from the glistening ocean…here are the details to ensure a smooth experience for you and your fellow retreat participants.

Please remember any additional time you book before/after the retreat is at your own expense.

We highly encourage arriving (at least) one day prior to the retreat and enjoying a couple days after to allow for better integration of the retreat experience. Additional dates outside of the scheduled retreat dates are NOT included in the cost of the retreat.

Guests often state they wish they would have taken the extra time to decompress. We have found that the down-time helps you return to your life more connected and better suited to making lasting change. We also recognize if you have commitments back home—we honor whatever choice you make.

There is a list of suggested hotels in our Retreat Facebook book here (you must join the group in order to view).


IMPORTANT: These are simply accommodation options. We do not specifically recommend any of the below options and are not responsible for your experience at these accommodations.



(These are the ONLY Hotels near the airport that MDJ Taxi will pick up from.)

  • Note: MDJ Taxi can also pick up from hotels downtown Puerto Vallarta, with the EXCEPTION of Villa del Palmar Flamingos or La Estancia (no private taxi service is allowed at either of these hotels). Should you opt to stay there, you will need to meet the MDJ Taxi at the airport.
