Location and how to get there

Tulum, an exquisite natural paradise, steeped in the mystique of its ancient Mayan history, is located on the Southeastern tip of the Mayan Peninsula in Mexico. Set in between the lush, wild jungle, mangroves and cenotes, along breathtakingly beautiful white sand beaches and turquoise waters, where ancient Mayan ruins are perched on the cliffs, the magical aura and energy of Tulum makes it one of the most sought after yoga and wellness destinations on the planet.

– Flights should be booked to Cancun International Airport (check Expedia for the best fares)
Tulum is about a 90 minute drive from Cancun. Assistance with arranging shared transfers (recommended) from the airport will be provided but the cost is not included in the price.
There is also a bus that goes from Cancun airport to Tulum, ADO, (stopping in Playa Del Carmen). A taxi then can be taken from Tulum Pueblo to Naga. (20-30 minutes)
Cars can be rented at Cancun airport but it is not recommended due to parking and it will be unnecessary during your stay as everything is within proximity as the property is situated directly off of the Boca Paila: walking, bike rental or short taxi rides are your best option.
If you would like to rent a car in the days preceding or following the retreat you can also do so in Tulum Pueblo.
