Retreat Options

Cash on Arrival

You may also pay in cash in $US on arrival. We will need  your complete flight itinerary in an email to confirm your reservation. Please bring only crisp new bills with no writing and no tears along the crease . The banks here will not accept bills with minor damage that are fine in most other places, and you will need to pay a taxi to go back to town and get other bills from a cash machine. Please plan ahead for this and only bring pristine bills. When you pick up the money to pay us please review it and ask for other bills for anything that is not in very good condition. 


Bank Wire Transfer

The information below can be used to wire your payment from your bank to ours.  If you choose this option please confirm with your bank all fees that will be charged en route. Please note wire transfers routinely show up $30-$100 short, and neither the sending or receiving bank has ever claimed responsibility for the shortage. For this reason we recommend paying by Western Union. If you prefer to send via wire, please include an extra $50 to cover this  shortage. We will settle the difference between the cost of the program and what we received when you arrive.

Getting to the Hummingbird Center

All participants of the 12 or 9 day retreats will be met at the Fitzcaraldo restaurant on the Boulevard, a river front park a block away from the Plaza de Armas and near the hotels. Here is a link to Google Maps for Fitzcaraldo. It is on the left corner facing the buildings. You will be picked up at 10 am on the 1st day of the retreat. This is a very easy restaurant to find, just ask your hotel or any motocar driver.

For those on Personalized Retreats, we will work out the pick up on an individual basis. We do encourage you to start your stay with the 12 or 9 day retreat programs as it flows smoother than other starting dates.
