Join Argo Adventures for a transformational escape in Tulum Mexico

Join Argo Adventures in Tulum, the soul of the Mayan Rivera.

Tulum, Mexico is well regarded as one of the most beautiful places on Earth and it’s beaches are consistently rated at the top of any serious list. Our home for the Argo Adventures re:charge session is nestled within the heart of the Sian Ka’an biopreserve, a UNESCO world heritage site. Bordered on one side by the crystal blue Caribbean sea, and vast expanses of virgin jungle on the other. Tulum is a truly unique and empowering location that will dazzle with it’s beauty, rejuvenate with it’s tranquility and spirit and amaze with ancient Mayan ruins.

 

Once you arrive on-site, the Argo Adventures team will take care of everything, all you have to do is show up.

Each day of your week-long re:charge session offers a distinct adventure. You will begin with an invigorating beach workout session in the morning on the beautiful white sand beaches directly in front of your suite. Your fitness ambassador, Noelle Benepe will offer a workout which will draw elements from her custom crafted fitness programs. In the evening, we will reward your body with a rejuvenating Vinyasa practice led by the world renowned Ellen de Jonge.

All of the fitness activities at your re:charge session are designed to be self-regulated as we will have people of all different fitness levels attending. We will coach you in achieving your best and, how to scale the each activity to meet your comfort level at that time. We are here to support you in creating as much or, as little intensity as you need.

 

From there, things get dynamic!

During your Argo Adventures re:charge session you will explore Mayan ruins, hike through lush jungles, and swim in crystal clear waters.

You will also have ample opportunity to relax……Hanging out in your hammock, chatting with new friends, reading, or even forging your own path on an isolated beach. Rest is as a critical component of high performance and Argo Adventures has designed the session to provide plenty of down-time for your enjoyment.

You will be well fed and well cared for during your entire experience. Our chief Nutrition Officer, Jacklyn London, has partnered with local chefs to design a menu that is deeply nourishing, delicious and detoxifying. The intention is to provide you with the fuel you need to perform at your highest possible levels, so we are using only fresh, organic ingredients that are sourced locally and keep with the culinary traditions of the region. Jackie will also be offering a 1 hour Nutrition Master Class and 1 on 1 nutritional coaching to design a personalized program that you can use to retain optimum health when you return home.

While you will be surrounded by the natural beauty of Tulum at every turn, the re:charge session is designed harness the connection to your surroundings to empower and align your body, mind and spirit. We are here to help nurture and restore each participant, while focusing on a strong sense of connection between you, the present moment and the people around you.. This focus on shared experience with like-minded adventurers is a key ingredient that will make every re:charge session unique.

When and where do I need to fly in?

Book all travel to Cancun international airport(CUN).  Your retreat begins at the resort in Tulum at 3pm on 11/8/16.  As many people will be flying in early, it is best if you make your way to Tulum on your own. The costs for all transport options from Cancun airport to Tulum generally fall into the following ranges: $65 USD for Shared Van from Cancun Airport, $100 USD for private taxi, $20 Bus to Tulum town and taxi to resort. The bus is our favorite option, as it is a luxury coach and is incredibly simple.

We are happy to provide more detail on any of these options.

Make sure to book your flight so that you depart on 11/13/16 around 5pm. These are the most common arrival and departure times for flights to and from the U.S. and we have arranged for the airport transportation around those times.  If you book travel too far outside the suggested window, you will need to arrange for your own airport transport.

You will be provided with a complete transportation package after your booking that will detail all the steps needed to book your flights and how meet up with the Argo team at the resort upon your arrival.

What is the weather like?

The weather in Tulum during this period is perfectly tropical. We specially selected this time-frame as the most comfortable weather  to make the most of all that Tulum offers. Average temperatures range from a high of 82 degrees to a low of 72. There is usually small rain showers the late afternoons that blow over in a few minutes and leave the air bright and clear. As this is the tropics, there is humidity and there are some insects, but neither are major issues.

Do I have to do all of the scheduled activities, or can I do my own thing?

This is your session, so you are free to engage in as much or as little activity as you wish. That said, we prefer to have people who want to be involved as much as possible. Don’t sit on the side-lines….Jump in a play!

Banking Information (Bring cash?)

There are a few ATMs close to the resort, but the best bet is to withdraw cash at the ATMs located at the airport. Check with you bank as they may have a partnership agreement in place. For example, Bank of America and Banco Santander allow their customers to withdraw funds with zero ATM or exchange fees. You will not need much in the way of cash, but it is a good idea to have some on hand.

Will there be wi-fi?

The resort does offer wi-fi, but we highly encourage all attendees to take this opportunity to disconnect from technology during the re:charge session. You will feel much better if you do!

Will I be able to use my mobile phone?

There is some cell reception in the area but it can be spotty. We recommend that you use Skype or WhatsApp when connected to wi-fi if you absolutely have to call home.

Will you need a VISA?

No. There is an automatic 90 day tourist visa issued upon arrival.

Food? Water?

You will be provided with 3 delicious and highly nutritious meals each day that will be made only with the freshest ingredients. The tap water in Mexico can make travelers ill, however the resort provides ample purified water and ice. There are also amazing fresh juices available that are perfectly safe to drink, not to mention delicious and perfectly refreshing.

What happens if I miss the bus?

If you book travel outside the suggested time frame, want to extend your trip or simply do not feel like waiting for others, there are several great options for you. A taxi To/from the airport to the resort will cost about US$100 or there is a very comfortable bus offered by ADO for about US$10 to Tulum, and another US$10 for a taxi from the terminal to Ahau Tulum.  If you have any questions, please contact us at info@argoadventurelabs.com and I can work with you to suggest the best way forward. http://www.cancun-airport.net/buses.php

Do I have to stay for all 7-days?

You can stay for any portion of the re:charge session, but we cannot accommodate reduced price options for shorter stays.

What does your fitness need to be in order to do this retreat?

You will get the most out of the experience if you have a solid base-line fitness level, but no one needs to be an elite athlete to enjoy the activities we have planned for you.
