Stuff you should know
10 THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT XINALANI RETREAT CENTER
There is no road access. You will arrive by boat. You don’t want to ride the boat at night so please fly in before 4:30pm and fly out after 11:30am.
It’s not easy to catch a boat to go shopping in PV unless you’re part of a group
If you’re patient enough, you can catch a water taxi (so count on a 15 minute boat ride, and a 40 minutes cab ride, or up to an hour by bus). If you manage to gather several friends that can share the cost with you, you can charter the Xinalani boat to take you directly to town (no bus needed) and pick you up at the peer when you’re done shopping and sight-seeing.
There is like a gazillion stairs
Well not that many actually, only 176. But from the beach up to the highest point on property (ie the Jungle Studio), there is an elevation of 215 ft. So please consider this fact if you have had knee surgery, hip replacement, a twisted ankle or if you hate butt and thighs workouts.
The wi-fi sucks
For the very reason that you’re on an island in Mexico, telecommunications are really unreliable. You shouldn’t expect to be able to check on email every 5 minutes as if you were at home. Breathe deeply and practice gratefulness when it does work.
The food is awesome
We really put a lot of efforts in exceeding expectations when it comes to food. We’ve been praised for that over the past few years by a little more than 4 thousand guests. We can assure you we will do our very best so your retreat is packed with delicious meals, respecting your healthy food habits.
The staff is amazing
It’s the second most highlighted feature of Xinalani when it comes to positive feedback, everybody seems to have an awesome time with our staff, especially with waiters, frontdesk officers, and managers. We hand pick people from our neighbor community for their authentic benevolence, their work ethics, and their natural happiness. Since some of our team members are in the hospitality business for the first time, if they lack any experience, they overcompensate with genuine care and they run the extra mile so you have a great time on your retreat.
Everything is open air
You will practically live outdoors for a week. When you get to your room, there is a door with a lock, but there are only three walls, that is to say the terrace is a wide opening that you cannot completely shut. There are blinds that you can drop, but it’s still fully open air. Which means there are slight chances that an animal visits you during your stay. Part of the adventure. Not having food or drinks in your room will greatly reduce the chances of this happening though…
Do activities at your own risk
Xinalani offers a wide range of excursions, such as jungle hikes, canopy zip line tours, swimming trips with wild dolphins, surf lessons, etc. Engage in those activities, have tons of fun, but please consider the risks you’re taking and make sure you can handle them. You will have to sign a waiver for most activities to release liabilities.
There are no refunds - please keep this in mind :)
