When flying in, the best option is to rent a car as you will need transportation. Cancun airport is one hour from the host property and it is an easy straight shot down one highway the whole way! We recommend sorting out ride shares with the other attendees to make it easier, more cost efficient and fun! You can also grab a taxi or take the public transport buses down to Akumal. We will drive to the cenotes each day so if you are not renting a car please organize to ride with someone over the weekend! 

You will need cash to get into the cenotes each day. Most cenotes cost around $15 to $35 each for entrance fees. 



There are no conditions in which your spot and payment would be refunded to you unless the retreat is canceled in emergency situations. These retreats are highly time intensive for our team and very limited in spots. We highly recommend purchasing dive trip insurance to cover you in case of an unforeseen need to cancel.
