Flight Parameters

Arrival Day: Saturday, October 26th

Please plan to arrive by 5pm on Saturday into Marrakech (RAK) so as to be on time for our welcome dinner that evening. If you arrive after 5pm we can still arrange an airport transfer for you, but we can not promise that you will make it on-time to the group dinner. 

Upon arrival in Marrakech, we will transport you from the airport to our hotel in the city (about a 15 min drive), and you'll have the afternoon to settle in and rest up before our group dinner.

Please note that you will need to depart from Boston (or whatever airport you're flying from in the US) on the evening of Friday, October 25th, as all flights heading over to Europe / Morocco are overnight flights.

Departure Day: Friday, November 1st

Please DO NOT book flights that depart before 12PM on Friday, November 1st, as we will be traveling about 3 hours from Essaouira to Marrakech that morning. 

Most flights back to the USA from Marrakech involve an overnight in a European city, and many airlines will allow you to stopover for an extra night or more free of charge if you want to extend your vacation and spend a weekend in Europe.

Passport Requirements + Immunizations

You must have a valid passport to travel to Morocco. Please check your passport expiration date and make sure it is valid for at least 3 months after the end date of your retreat. 

A Visa is not required for US Citizens visiting Morocco, unless you're staying for more than 90 days.

Arrival + Exploration

Our trip will begin in the culturally rich city of Marrakech. Nestled in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains, Marrakech was founded as a city in 1062 AD, and is world renowned for its souks  (markets) and medieval maze-like streets, stunning mosques and palaces, relaxing hammans (Moroccan baths), delicious food, and much more. A perfect place to assimilate and integrate into life in Morocco, we will spend our first day and a half here, before heading to the walled coastal city of Essaouira on Day 2 of our trip.

I had a wonderful experience, fantastic service and food. Beautiful relaxing atmosphere right on the ocean. Excellent and peaceful accommodations. I could not ask for a better vacation.
Wonderful, relaxing trip.
I LOVED Spain!! So grateful for the opportunity to go to the south of spain.....with mountain views, proximity to the beach, spectacular weather, and the amazing food (tapas, morrocan influences,) & culture!
This was the most amazing retreat filled with sensory overload. Everywhere you turned in the Azores was lush and green, even though there were many moments of wind, rain, and clouds during the first three days. Petra's classes were finely attuned to the needs of her retreater's and were always exactly what we needed. Our guided hikes were spectacular, and were finished with going to different thermal hot springs that were recuperative and relaxing. The food was great, I loved having many options at breakfast. Our dinners out were wonderful too, especially going to Quinta de Sabores (sp.), such a beautiful "farm to table" experience, the atmosphere there was truly unforgettable. Santa Barbara Eco Resort was a wonderful resort, I loved having a villa, it was spacious and the views were spectacular. I highly recommend going to the Azores on a retreat and will definitely go again should the opportunity arise.
The trip met all of my expectations. Tina Reale was terrific. Everything was well coordinated and there was plenty of communication throughout.
