Important Travel Information
Itineraries, schedules and programs are subject to change at any time. We travel with LAN for all flights as the other airlines can be unreliable.
Arrival in Peru
Please organise your own internal flights in Peru. We ask that all participants book on the selected group flights within Peru. We use LATAM for all flights as the other airlines can be unreliable.
May Retreat: We meet as a group at Puerto Maldonado airport at the LATAM Baggage Claim on May 1st.
The recommended flight to Puerto Maldonado from Lima is at 9.56 on May 1st.
Be sure to give yourself plenty of time for taxi travel from your hotel if necessary.
As most flights arrive in Lima from Australia quite late in the day you will need to arrive in Lima at least one day prior to retreat commencement. (See suggested accommodation in Lima)
Be sure to keep the customs form that is returned to you in Lima, you will need this for departure.
The May retreat concludes on the morning of May 11th.
Transfer to the airport is provided for your flight back to Lima on this day.
Please allow plenty of time for checking in and boarding your flights. Connecting with the group later may be difficult and expensive.
If for any reason, your flight is delayed and you are unable to connect with the group at the designated time (including weather and other airline delays) or make your connecting flight any and all expenses incurred by you to connect later with the group are the sole responsibility of the participant. Likewise any additional expenses incurred by Earth Spirit Yoga or the Amazon lodge to accommodate such delays are also the responsibility of the participant. (i.e. sending a separate bus/boat to pick you up after the group has departed for/from the lodge.)
Please bring only backpacks or soft travel bags (as well as your handbag or hand luggage). Hard suitcases will be difficult to manage in transit.
The tap water anywhere in Peru contains different bacteria than the water in Australia or the United States. Our bodies are not accustomed to this. Drinking the water can make you sick. Please drink and brush your teeth with only bottled water (that you have broken the seal of.) Don’t forget to avoid ice with your drinks (even on the plane in and out of the country).
The currency of Peru is the Nuevo Sol. You will need cash in either Soles or US dollars for incidental purchases.
Please notify your bank prior to your departure if you are planning to use your ATM card in Peru.
We recommend using ATM machines either with your usual ATM card or with a Travel Money Card.
We don't recommend bringing cash that you need to exchange into Peruvian Soles or US dollars as there are not many opportunities to exchange en route.
Single rooms are available upon request at an extra cost.
