What to bring?

I suggest packing the following:
*Comfortable, loose fitting clothing and PJs (from day to eve, temps are in the high 80s to low 70s)
*Beach clothes, swim wear and a beach towel
*Sunscreen, hat, sunglasses
*A journal/notebook, pen, and water bottle
*Anything personal (toiletries, supplements, medications, etc.)

Mats and blankets for meditation and group circles are provided, so no need to bring those.

Getting to Mar de Jade:

Location: Mar de Jade is located in the small bay of Chacala, in the state of Nayarit, on the Pacific Coast of Mexico. Mar de Jade is just 90 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta.

Transportation by airplane: Fly into Puerto Vallarta International Airport (PVR). 

Transportation arrangements with a local van service to/from Puerto Vallarta airport and Mar de Jade can be made for an additional fee. Rates are per person, one way based on the number of people sharing one van. For example, 1 person = $130 USD or 4 people = $35 USD each. Van transportation payments must be made in cash to the driver.

Covid-19: If the US and Canada are still requiring a COVID test to re-enter the country at the time of this retreat (October 2022), Mar de Jade will bring in a lab to conduct those tests, just as they do now. The additional charge for the Antigen test (valid in the USA) with same day results is $800 pesos, which is approximately $45 USD and must be paid in cash. 

Masking is optional, as the retreat will primarily be outdoors or in rooms with open wall-length windows.

I hope you will consider joining us for some Dream Medicine!
