La Ventana, Mexico- January 2019

We are getting closer...

I am counting down the days until we begin the Light of the Moon Retreat in La Ventana/La Paz, Mexico! We will be diving into Astrology wisdom and retreating to the warm winds on the coast of the Sea of Cortez. When we study and learn about astrology, it really is a look through our psyche where we can observe ourselves. For those of you that are new to the Intention Beads retreats- I am so grateful to have you on board for this journey- and let me or Alex know if you have any questions.

We are a smaller sized group of 10, and I am excited for this since it will be an intimate and rich experience for us all. I am so excited to meet you and spend exciting, quality time with you! Each of my trips to Casa Tara have been incredible- the food, the rooms, the VIEW, the FOOD! I am thrilled to be traveling back, as the staff and owners of Casa Tara hold a special place in my heart.


What I need from you...

  1. Download the Mexico Resource PDF

Please print this PDF so that you have this information handy when traveling

Before the trip...


As many countries require, you must have at least 6 months left on your passport before it expires when you arrive. Please double check! Also, it is smart to have a photocopy of your passport in your luggage just in the case that you lose it!


We recommend flying into Los Cabos International Airport or Manuel Márquez de León International Airport (La Paz) on January 5th afternoon (we start around 6pm with a meet & greet) and you can plan to depart January 12th afternoon/evening (we will have shuttles to the airport beginning in the morning). Feel free to add any extra time onto the beginning or end of the retreat- we can help you get longer accommodations at a discount. As soon as you have your airline itinerary, make sure you have updated the Retreat Form link with your flight info!


We recommend bringing some cash to exchange either at the airport or at a currency exchange. Larger bills will give you a better exchange rate, but feel free to bring some smaller bills- you can tip in U.S. bills. There may also be souvenirs, spa treatments, clothing, art, etc to budget for. And might we suggest a little bit of room in your suitcase for any extra items!
