Your free time can be spent soaking up the sun on our near private beach, relaxing by the pool, getting a massage, biking to hidden beaches, exploring hiking trails around the retreat center, horseback riding, snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing, and experiencing the local culture of Bocas del Toro. These are just a few of the many optional excursions available to you. Choose your own adventure and be as active or relaxed as you like!

Required Travel Insurance

The purchase of travel insurance is required for this trip.

Most policies protect you against potential trip delays or cancellations due to airline issues, family emergencies, illness, injury, etc. The travel insurance will also demonstrate to the host country that you are able to pay for any emergency services which may be necessary during your stay.

SolSeed is not authorized to sell travel insurance. Any offer to purchase travel insurance that you encounter during the checkout process are third party offers. You are free to select your own policy provider. If you would like to review options in a convenient online marketplace, we like what has put together. We have also had great experience with Trawick International and their customer service, and heard very good things from AAA and AMEX Members who have purchased their travel insurance through those respective agencies.

We strongly encourage you to speak with a travel insurance agent to discuss your specific coverage needs, and to clear up any questions you may have relative to travel insurance coverage, including questions about COVID-19.

Please make sure you purchase a plan that includes coverage for COVID-19 related trip cancellations and trip interruptions as not all do.

Cancellation & Refund Policy

All retreats include a $500 non-refundable / non-transferable deposit, which is required to hold your spot on the trip. Any balance payments made are also non-refundable / non-transferable. SolSeed Retreats can only make an exception to these terms if:

  1. The host government forbids us to visit as tourists.
  2. The host government forbids our vendors from hosting us as tourists.
  3. The US government forbids us to travel to the host country as tourists.

If SolSeed must further postpone or cancel the trip for any of the above reasons, all registrants will receive a refund of all deposits paid less $200.

If you refuse to comply with the entry laws of the host country, region, town, etc; SolSeed will not consider this a valid reason for receiving any refund. SolSeed will ensure to the best of their abilities that all registrants comply with all then current laws and regulations.

The location was amazing, the island is magnificent and the hotel very intimate. The foos was very good but not enough choice, not enough quantity. Snacks would have been very welcome for a yoga retreat. The activities were very cool and the staff very friendly We had to insist to have breakfast prepared for us who were leaving before noon on the last day while it was included in the price, this is a pity. One of the two restaurants out of the resort was a poor choice. Overall the experience was wonderful thanks to our yoga teacher Cathy and to the other people here!

I did have an amazing time. Cathy is obviously amazing! The food was fine- breakfast was probably the best meal. Dinner was okay- did not love the options and how we had to choose our meals a head of time. Service could have been much better. I felt like we were constantly inconveniencing the wait staff. They were not friendly at all- never greeted with smiles, or good morning, good afternoon, etc. They were not helpful at all. The grounds of the resort and our villas were beautiful and very comfortable. The excursions were also okay- would have loved more options other than 2 hikes and 2 hot springs. Overall it was a nice trip with a great group.

Had the most amazing time on the retreat with Cat, who led a soulful and joyful experience. The beauty of the Azores was the icing on the cake. Made new connections that are bound to last. Highly recommend!!!
By Genie G for Adventure to the Azores with Cat on 03 Jun, 2022
I had a fabulous time! the hotel was a beautiful Eco lodge hotel on the ocean. the accommodations were wonderful. it was super comfortable and the food & the service at the hotel was excellent. the events were fabulous and well planned. the hot springs and the hikes were great. the only thing that could have been better was trying to organize our 'free day' plan. I felt there was very little support around that and the hotel front desk didnt have the ability to make it happen. I wanted to plan a kayaking trip for one of the free days and even rounded up 11 people and in the end the hotel couldn't make it happen. the agreed upon time was changed at the last minute and it didn't coincide with others people's plans. I spend one evening all through dinner trying to organize the trip only to have it fall through. other than that, the excursions were planned so well and the lunches by Maria catering were delicious. thank you Sol Retreats! I would definitely attend one of your reties again.
By Nicole G for Adventure to the Azores with Cathy Madeo on 02 Jun, 2022
The hotel was in an excellent location on the island, all the excursions were well planned, and the group was so much fun! Cathy Madeo is an excellent teacher and I would recommend this particular location and Solseed to others! Tina was really great too and it was wonderful to have someone from the US at the resort assisting us. The farm to table meal was fantastic! Thank you for making this possible!
