What’s the difference between The Magic Jungle Experience and The Magic Jungle Inspiration? I can’t decide which program is best for me!
We are currently hosting two very different gatherings in this gorgeous location. To read all about our programs check out our registration pages: Inspiration, Experience.
The Magic Jungle Inspiration is a 4 day retreat for anyone who is looking to explore their artistic self and get clarity on their creative life through guided introspective exercises, working with your hands and creating community with other artists. The objective of this retreat is to go back home with a refreshed outlook and having made some gain on your work while making connections with other like-minded individuals.
The Magic Jungle Experience is a female only, 5 day retreat for women with a specific creative project or business. This is an intimate setting (12 ppl max) that is focused on your project with personalized attention and insight from other creative entrepreneurs. The objective of this retreat is to go back home with real knowledge about how you want to integrate your artistic soul with your professional life and ready to take specific action for the next steps of your project.
These both sound amazing! Can I take both?
Yes! These are different experiences and do not have to be taken in order. You will get different knowledge from each. All past members get a 10% discount for future retreats.
Where exactly is the retreat?
The Magic Jungle Experience is held at Holistika, a retreat center in Tulum. It is a short car ride away from Tulum’s beach area and even closer to Tulum’s downtown.
Avenida Tulum 83
Tulum, Quintana Roo
How do I get to Tulum?
Book a flight to Cancun!
Tulum is located at 81 miles (130 km) south from Cancun. It will take you about 1h 50 minutes by bus, or even less if you decide to go by car.
There are plenty of shuttles and taxis leaving to and from Tulum everyday and you are free to rent a car if that is more comfortable for you. It all depends on your budget and what’s important to you.
The cheapest way to get to Tulum from the Cancun International Airport is by bus. Scheduled times for buses are:
Bus tickets are $228 pesos, which is about $13 USD. They are extremely safe and if you miss a direct bus to Tulum you can always catch one that stops in Playa del Carmen and from there they leave for Tulum every half hour.
Once you are booked for the retreat, we will share arrival and departure times with the rest of the group in case you want to team up with a travel buddy and you can even share a ride to and from the airport, immediate bonding!
How do I get back to the Cancun airport from Tulum?
There are also shuttles, taxis and busses available to get back from Tulum to the Cancun International Airport.
Scheduled morning ADO bus times leaving from Tulum are:
It will take you around 1h 50 minutes to get back, so plan accordingly.
If for some reason you miss the bus, don't worry! There are plenty of shuttles and taxis available on demand.
Check out is before noon. We will be offering one last breakfast together at the retreat center.

What are the rooms like?
Our rooms at Holistika Tulum are called “Beehives”.
The concept of community was the inspiration behind these 12 people dorm rooms. The rooms are designed for the group to sleep in the same area, without being cramped. Everyone has their own private pod, a locker to keep their belongings in, and very comfortable beds.
Each beehive has 4 showers and 4 toilets with complete privacy.

Holistika is centered around a healthy lifestyle. Meals are vegetarian, eggs and dairy will be available as well. All meals have vegan and gluten free options.
Think fresh fruit and veggies, chia pudding bowls, breakfast chilaquiles, veggie taco night with fresh guac and pico de gallo. All meals include real juice and aguas frescas with optional natural sweeteners.
