Yelapa, Mexico sits on a small, beautiful bay 40 minutes south of Puerto Vallarta and is accessible only by boat. As such, there is very little tourism here and the authenticity of this charming Mexican village is still very much in tact.

Pura Vida Retreat Center resides quite literally off the beaten track, on one of the most stunning pieces of land in the area. Imagine the sound of crashing waves always close at hand and the lush jungle bringing it’s own melody to this ongoing symphony of nature. Oh… and the night sky! Well, you simply have to see it for yourself…

This access to nature provides the necessary backdrop for transformation to occur on a deeper level, fueled by the alchemy of the KAP Modality.

What Transpired?

Here’s What People Had to Say

For those looking to move deeper into the discovery of self,
to step out of the familiar and into something positively life-altering,
you will leave here transformed…

Things to consider before booking:

  • It is a requirement that you have had at least three KAP sessions prior to the retreat. This will insure that you are familiar with the KAP process and that you are in a primed state to receive the maximum benefit of the KAP transmissions in the enhanced retreat environment. Pre-retreat group sessions will be available weekly online leading up to the retreat, and participants will be offered these three sessions at no additional cost.
  • Due to the intense nature of this retreat, it is highly recommended that you give yourself an extra day or two of relaxing, do-nothing integration time before returning home and re-entering your regular routine.
  • You must be in a place of actively pursuing some sort of personal transformation. While this time away is meant to nourish the deepest parts of you, it is not a “vacation”. You will be asked to go deeply inward and examine what lies in the shadows in order to transcend.
  • Mexico currently has no covid testing requirements for entry, however in order to in order to maintain the integrity and comfort of this intimate container we will be working within, and to lessen any potential worries about sharing space, we are requiring that all retreat participants show a negative covid antigen test upon arrival. The test should be dated within 72hrs of your arrival at Pura Vida.
  • Like all things worthwhile, getting to Yelapa in general and the retreat center in particular require a little bit of effort. From Puerto Vallarta you catch a simple water taxi for you and your luggage, and there is a possible wet landing depending upon tide conditions. From the beach/pier you walk along the rocky shore to the retreat center (porters will be available to take your luggage) but trust me, the journey is as beautiful as the destination!
