How do I get to San Miguel de Allende?
You can fly into either Leon (BJX) or Queretaro (QRO) Airport and a private round trip shuttle service will transport you to the hotel. Airfare is not included in the price of the retreat.
Is Mexico safe?
Listen, I wouldn’t travel alone three times to Mexico with my young daughter if I thought it was a threat. Nor would the expat community of more than 10,000 permanent North American residents live there if they didn’t think it was one of the greatest places on earth. San Miguel is about as safe as any other town in America, probably safer. However, just like in any place in the world you will need to take basic precautions like not leaving your cell phone in a public place while you go to the bathroom or walk alone at night after drinking too many margaritas.
Who will be at this retreat?
This retreat is for smart, ambitious, creative, entrepreneurial women who have a positive mind-set and are eager to start living more fully in their Sweet Spot. We will form a tribe with the intention of supporting and encouraging each other, highlighting the best in each other, learning from one another and moving forward together.
I want to go, but I don’t have the time.
I hear ya sister. In this crazy-busy culture time is a sought-after commodity. But here’s the thing: How much time have you lost trying to come up with a plan and then not following through? How much time would you GAIN by having uninterrupted time work on a plan you can stick with, months after you’ve returned? If learning how to scale your biz s is a priority, then you can make the time.
I want to go, but I don’t have the money.
Have you read Get Rich, Lucky Bitch by Denise Thomas Duffield? She has a chapter on upgrading your lifestyle that I find very inspiring. The laws of the universe say that we get what we focus on. If you are focusing on the fact that you don’t have the money, then you won’t have the money. If you can allow yourself to FEEL what it FEELS like to fully live in your Sweet Spot, surrounded by beauty and inspiration – then you will call more of that into your life for sure. And guess what? If it’s more financial abundance that you seek, allow yourself to feel abundant starting now and watch how more of what you want comes into your life. I wouldn’t recommend this but for the fact that I’ve tried it many times and it works.
Now, I don’t recommend going into debt to get into your Sweet Spot, so if you seriously do not have the money, than try manifesting it specifically for this trip. I give you step-by-step directions on this post here. There’s one rule- if you manifest the money for this trip- use it for this trip!! Also, look at airfare from Mexico City, it might be cheaper to fly there and take a bus to Leon or Queretaro.
I'm A Single Traveller but want to pay for a shared room, how does this work?
We have two options for the Thrive Creative Retreat. You can sign up for a single room for $2800 or share a room for $2400. If you have a biz buddy and want to share that room, please let us know by emailing Desha: email@example.com If you are coming alone and want to share a room, no problem. We will place you in a double room and pick your roommate. Don’t worry, we are all on the same page here: biz ladies who are ready to have fun and connect in the best way possible :)
Do I need a passport or visa?
Yes you do need a valid passport to travel to Mexico. No, you do not need a visa.
Are Airport Transfers Included?
Yes, you will receive roundtrip transfers from either the Queretaro or Leon airport from our trusted shuttle service. However, if you fly into another city, such as Mexico City, you will be responsible for arranging paying for your transport to San Miguel de Allende.
