Δ When do I arrive/leave? The program will start at 1pm on Sunday so it would be ideal for your to arrive on Saturday evening. We end the retreat on Sunday afternoon and will arrange for everyone to be dropped back to Mexico City before dinner time. You have the option to fly out of Mexico city that evening or you could spend a night in Mexico City. I can help to arrange day trips to see Mexico’s largest pyramids, etc. What is the weather like? The tempreture can get up to 30 degrees Celsius during the day but it can drop to about 12 in the evenings and early morning so please bring warm clothes! Will it cater to special dietary needs? Yes, please be sure to alert Mariel to any allergies, intolerances or preferences with sufficient time prior to the start of the retreat so she can inform the chef.
