Galapagos Islands Retreat
The Galapagos Islands, 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador, offer wildlife and landscapes that will leave you speechless and wondering why you didn’t visit sooner. This isolated group of 19 volcanic islands provides a showcase of biodiversity unlike anywhere else in the world.
During our stay on Isla Santa Cruz we will experience the true “Galapagos Spirit” by staying in two very unique locations on the island. The first two nights will be spent in a small inn located on an exclusive waterfront property. And then we will move to the highlands for our final 4 nights on Isla Santa Cruz where we will stay in a beautiful boutique hotel with our own private yoga studio. In addition to being on the island which is the focal point for scientific research you will also get to explore the surrounding islands with daily excursions which will include hiking, snorkeling kayaking and SUPing. As always, daily yoga and fitness classes will be part of the itinerary as well.
How to get there: Fly into Quito, Ecuador (UIO) or Guayaquil, Ecuado (GYE) (approx. $500 from BWI) and then to Seymour Airport on Baltra Island (airport code: GPS). You will likely need to arrive into Ecuador one day prior to the start of the retreat. More info on this can be sent upon request.
Cost: $3,000 (non-refundable $500 deposit required to hold your spot on this retreat)
