What should I pack for this adventure?

We recommend that you bring very comfortable clothes for your entire stay. This includes clothing suitable for practicing yoga, loose and fresh pieces for the rest of the day such as attending sessions, swimwear for the beach, flip-flops, and little else. If you are sensitive to noise, keep in mind that we will be staying in treehouses immersed in nature right in front of the sea, so the sounds of nature can be quite loud at night. If you are very sensitive to any noise, remember to bring earplugs. Oh! And don't forget the mosquito repellent.

What happens if I get sick?

We understand that getting sick while traveling alone in a foreign country can be worrisome. That's why we require all our guests to have comprehensive travel and medical insurance that includes international evacuation. In the unlikely event that you fall sick during the retreat, we will take you to the nearest medical facility so you can receive the necessary care. Additionally, one of our local partner staff will be there to assist you with translations and anything else you may need.

What travel and medical insurance should I get?

When travelling to Mexico, ensuring you have comprehensive travel and medical insurance is absolutely essential. Picture this: if you ever found yourself in a situation where you needed an emergency transport to Mexico City or Guadalajara, or even a flight back to your home country, you'd want the peace of mind that comes with knowing you're fully covered. Double-check that your policy has your back for any unexpected twists and turns during your Mexican adventure! 🌮🏝️ We recommend that you book your insurance at the same time as you book your airfare, and after the retreat is confirmed by reaching the minimum number of participants.

What Airport do I fly into?

The closest airport to your serene getaway at Playa Viva is Zihuatanejo Ixtapa International Airport (ZIH). Non-stop & connecting flights from the U.S. From Europe, the most convenient route is to fly into Mexico City (MEX) and then catch a domestic flight straight to Zihuatanejo (ZIH). Upon arrival, we have arranged for your comfort with private transportation direct to Playa Viva.
