We will notify you after we have approved your booking form. To confirm your reservation please send a 50% deposit using one of the following methods:
Credit Card or PayPal
You may also pay by credit card using the PayPal service or with your PayPal account. If you want to pay by credit card but do not have a PayPal account, PayPal may ask you to create one depending on which country you are in. In the drop down list below, please select either 50% Deposit or full payment Retreat for the length of time you are reserving.
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.

All participants of the 12 day retreat 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 day retreat program, as it flows much smoother than other starting dates.
Note there are a number of hustlers at the airport that can be pretty aggressive. There is no need to give money to anyone at the airport. If you want to tip someone for helping with your bags 2 or 3 soles is sufficient. A moto-taxi into town is normally 12 soles and is about a 30 minute ride. Perhaps 20 soles if it is a car. Always agree on the price before getting in, and if they try to over charge simply take another taxi. If when you arrive at your destination they try to increase the price, refuse to pay it and only pay the agreed amount.
