FREQUENTLY ASKED 

Questions

DO I NEED TRAVEL INSURANCE?

WHAT IF I'M TRAVELING SOLO?

No problem! Donna will match you with a compatible solo traveler with whom you are comfortable. Prefer a private space? Private accommodations may be available at additional cost.  

I cannot emphasize more the importance of travel insurance. As we all know, especially as travelers, “life happens.” Whether it’s family, work, mother nature, or a change of heart, it is important to be prepared in case you need to unexpectedly change your travel plans. Often for less than $150, you can purchase a travel insurance policy and be protected in the event that you need to make a change or need to be covered financially prior to or during your trip. Travel and medical insurance are both highly recommended. Most health insurance companies will not cover out of country expenses. 

I have used Allianz Travel Insurance for both domestic and international insurance. Another option for price comparison is Travel Insurance. Ask questions and do research to find the best option for you.

WHAT ARE THE PAYMENT TERMS & CANCELLATION POLICY?

A NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT OF $500 (+ $35 processing fee) SAVES YOUR SPOT.

 

50% of your retreat remaining balance due by August 15, 2024. Final payment due by December 15, 2024. If booking after one or both payment dates, payment due within 5 days of booking. Payment amount will depend on retreat start date. Payments can be check or cash. You can Venmo Donna too. Connect with Donna for this option.

 

Credit card payments are available. A 3% transaction fee applies. All payments are final.

 

Due to our commitment to the property and their policies,we cannot offer any refunds, transfers, or credits for cancellations for any reason (including legitimate ones like illness, injury, family deaths, or other emergencies. Full guidelines under terms and conditions.

Need payment flexibility? Flexible payment option includes; making smaller more frequent payments. Email Donna at dragonflyretreatsgb@gmail.com

CAN I BOOK WITH A FRIEND?

Absolutely! Shared room accommodations that can sleep 2+ people are available. Please include your friends name in the notes area when booking and Donna will make sure you are placed in the same booked accommodation!

ANY THOUGHTS ON JOINING A RETREAT BY MYSELF IF I'VE NEVER DONE IT BEFORE?

I went on my first ever retreat knowing no one except for the retreat leader and had the most incredible experience. I loved having the space to meet new people and also spend quality time with myself in whatever way felt nourishing moment to moment. I was placed in a shared room with another woman who started as a kind stranger and quickly became a close friend by the end of the retreat. If you’re feeling called, I can’t recommend a solo experience enough!

AIRLINE +FLIGHT INFO AND TIPS:

You will fly into Liberia. This is the closest airport to our venue. The airport code is LIR. Group transfer to our venue will leave at 2:00 pm on 2/23/25. Allow time for customs- average is 1-2 hours. Book your return flight after 12:00pm on 2/28/25. If you miss the group transfer you will need to arrange and pay for your own transfer.

A simple internet search shared that booking an international flight 2-8 months before a trip is best. 

Note for flight cost savings:  You could check flights into San Jose (SJO) from your origin and book a second flight on Sansa Airlines from SJO to LIR (Liberia).

Spend some time researching flight costs to consider into your overall budget. 

WHAT IF I HAVE DIETARY RESTRICTIONS?

Cala Luna makes it easy for you to enjoy delicious, healthy meals without stepping off the resort property. They strive to use natural, fresh ingredients sourced locally to promote a healthy lifestyle. 

You can share restrictions on the intake form that will be sent in the month leading out to our retreat together and we will make sure you are taken care of!

DO I HAVE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE ADDITIONAL ACTIVITIES OR ADVENTURES?

Every yoga class or activity on our retreats is totally optional! We recommend you participate in the daily movement classes to experience the beneficial effects of the practice throughout the retreat, but this week is truly about relaxing, resetting and connecting back to your true magical self in a way that feels best for YOU.

HOW DO I BOOK SPA APPOINTMENTS?

WILL THERE BE FREE TIME?

You bet! Aside from our 2-3 daily practices, the rest of the day can be spent however your heart desires. Whether you’re looking to spend hours relaxing, reading, swimming, or on an adventure, it is completely up to you on how you spend your time.

E-RYT200 | YACEP | REIKI MASTER | ASTROLOGER

Founder + Owner Dragonfly Yoga Retreats & The Yoga Loft

I began my yoga practice almost 2 decades ago. The inward journey led me to my dream of being a yoga teacher and studio owner so that others may have that same experience. With over 2000 registered teaching and retreat hours, I enjoy teaching Vinyasa, Restorative/Yin and Meditation class styles. I have a passion for bringing women together for friendship and connection. Join me for an incredible week of connecting, laughter, fun and leaning into going with the flow (this is more than what it may sound like-join me to find out more!) as you unwind, unplug, reset, and enjoy everything this jungle paradise has to offer. 

In a world filled with distractions and demands, yoga and mindfulness are great ways to hit pause, pay attention and return to the present moment by focusing on what is directly in front of us. The only moment that exists. With journal workshops sprinkled in our time together you may find it easy to get clear on what is important for you to create in your life and sink into your new year intentions.  

In addition to leading retreats Internationally and in the US, I own a yoga studio in WI, am a Reiki Master, Astrologer, lead private events for local businesses and teach weekly classes. Building and staying connected to the community is something I'm incredibly passionate about. Curating this experience for you brings me joy. Retreats like this are immersive and transformative in the most beautiful ways. Being a part of your experience is such a gift.
