We run our cancellation policy to be consistent with that of the Cabuya Lodge. The retreat center is a small place and by booking with us, and we reserve your room, or the entire cabin for you, then there’s not much chance of us being able to fill your space at the last minute. So please be 100% sure that you want to book for the retreat and travel to the Cabuya Lodge before you submit your deposit.
Our policy applies in all situations, whether it’s caused by your own fault, medical emergencies, or acts of God.
If you need to cancel your reservation more than 30 days before your scheduled arrival date, then we will refund half of the money you paid for deposit.
If you need to cancel your reservation 30 days or less before your scheduled arrival date, then you will lose your deposit.
We are excited at the opportunity to include some extra add ons to your Women's retreat. Below is a listing of additional items and adventures you can include within your trip. Once you register we will send you additional information on how to add this on to your retreat as well as the additional payment for the excursions and timeline of the week:
Hike - $12: This is a hike in the national park . Danes Trail takes about an hour (depending very much on how fast people walk, how often they stop etc.) it’s 1.5 km and is a loop. This hike is technically easier.
These are true hikes and depending on the season it could be muddy or have some tricky footing.
Wear hiking footwear and bring lots of water (you can refill at the entrance). There are bathrooms at the ranger station.
Surf Lesson - $50: A 2 hour lesson, which includes land instruction and time in the water. The lesson will take place at Playa Grande in Montezuma, which is a beautiful 30 minute walk along the jungle and beach. Including the walk it’s about 3 hours. Once you factor in transportation there and back, this activity is about 4 hours. Often a little bit of time is added to enjoy the town of Montezuma. There are little shops for souvenirs, gelato shop, cash machine etc.
The time for the surf lesson will depend on the tides. We can check well in advance what the times would be so you can pre-plan which day(s) you’d like to offer the surf lesson.
Zipline Canopy Tour - $50: An exciting circuit with 9 cables distributed across 13 platforms will take you through the mountains of Montezuma. From the air, you’ll enjoy adrenaline and see the richness of wildlife found in Costa Rica from panoramic viewpoints, with the Pacific Ocean in the foreground.
That’s what the intense ziplining experience is all about, and you may see howler monkeys and capuchin monkeys, parrots, iguanas, and much more. Also, during the tour, you will visit famous waterfalls, where you can take photos or swim in the natural pools that the waterfalls have carved out.
The tour begins with the guides providing instructions, and putting on the equipment. The correct positioning of the equipment is very important so that you can have an excellent time on the tour.
Wear closed toe shoes and insect repellant. You may also wish to wear a swimsuit to enjoy the waterfalls
Snorkeling - $65: More detail to come with location and time.
Horse back riding on the beach: $65
Massage 60 min/90 min- $60/$75: Openings will be based on first come first serve basis. Once you register for the retreat we will be sending out the available time slots for the massages.
***All add on items will be booked after signing up for the retreat. This will help us see who is interested in what and the best way to fit it into our week's schedule. Payment will be made either in person during the retreat to the vendors of the excursion or to the Cabuya Lodge. If you are interested in one or more of these items, make sure to identify during the final part of the on-line registration for the retreat***
