The second fee is per bed. There are a number of different sleeping options. We will be hosted in 3 duplex houses, totaling 6 units. Each unit has room for 2 or 3 people, depending on which unit it is.

Take a look at the Patitos website so you know what the options look like

Your options for housing are a single twin or bunk bed in a shared room, a queen bed by yourself or with a friend/partner, also in a shared room, and there are 2 private rooms, one with a queen bed and private bath, one with a king bed and private bath.

Housing Option costs per bed for all 7 nights:

  • $450 each - Queen bed in shared with with another (list their name when you apply if you know who you wish to room with)

  • $600 - Twin/Bunk bed in shared room (4 available)

  • $900 - Queen bed in shared room, by yourself (max 3 available) //1 Booked, 2 remain //

  • BOOKED //$1,100 - Queen bed in private room with private bath //

  • $1,200 - King bed in semi-private room with private path (only 1 available, perfect for a couple or family. Note this suite in ‘Casa Daisy’ has a room off it it with 2 twin bunks, along with a separate bath) If you have a family or group of 4, this option plus 2 bunk beds above will give you your own complete private apartment.

So your total retreat fee is the two costs together. For example, 7 nights in a bunk bed is $600 + $750 = $1,350 total.

Sharing a Queen bed with another in a shared room / bathroom is the lowest cost: $450 + $750 = $1,200 per person (lowest cost option)

A quick search of airfares from regional airports shows that the round trip airfare is currently $475 - $700, depending on # stops, time of day etc.

Please do not book your flight until we confirm your booking as space is limited and when the beds are all claimed, that is it for this retreat.
