El Sol Retreat Center

Our Policies

These rules and policies are subject to change at any time.

  1. To book your reservation and reserve your spot, a 50-75% deposit is due upon registration, depending on the retreat type, payable electronically. The remainder is due in cash on arrival (in crisp USD – we appreciate your understanding as on-site operations are run entirely in cash).

2. We only accept the remaining balance in bills of crisp, like-new quality; you can usually find these bills of this quality if ordered from your home bank. To avoid circulation of forged bills in other countries, most  banks do not accept bills with signs of tear, extensive wear, or any markings on them, and cannot be accepted for exchange.

3.Please do not depend on withdrawing your remaining balance while here. It’s very challenging to withdraw enough of it through the bank machines, because there are daily and weekly limits. Therefore, we ask you to kindly bring the remaining balance with you in US bills of good quality.

4.In case of a last minute registration, while you’re already in here, for example, the full balance due is to be paid BEFORE starting your retreat.

5. If one leaves the Center, before their reserved stay is over, no full or partial refunds will be credited. 

6. If one cancels their registration within 2 weeks prior to their retreat, we will refund your registration, less transaction and administrative fees ($150). Otherwise, your deposit can be transferred to a future date or another person. If one wishes to reschedule to a different date, and has given us a two-week notice, the guest will be allowed to transfer their deposit to another retreat.

7. We value all guests’ experiences, healing processes and personal boundaries. We expect our guests do the same. The following offences are intolerable, and will result in being sent home without question and without a credit for your stay at the sole discretion of El SOL retreat center staff:

  • Sexual harassment toward any of the guests or staff.
  • Behavior that puts your own or others’ safety at risk.
  • Repetitive disruptive behaviors inside or outside ceremony that creates discomfort for other guests, or significantly interferes with the healing process of other guests.
  • The use of substances/drugs of any kind taken to or consumed at the Center.
  • Behavior that puts your own or others’ safety at risk.
  • Theft of any kind – we aim to cultivate a trusting and family-style culture at the Center, where every person and their belongings are safe and secure.
    •  

8. We do not share personal or contact information between guests without the explicit permission of the guest.
