Please read the General FAQS first. They will answer most of your questions. These below are specific to the Relocate or Retire retreats.
Retire or Relocate Retreats
- Most Retire-Relocate retreats are situated as central as possible with a short drive to the beach towns. By doing that, we can get the best access to big cities, infrastructure, beach towns, and small village farm life.
- Not even close. Not a big bus. Not a hotel room. Not a condo tour.
- These are small group retreats with a purpose. The residence is a luxury villa - all inclusive. We do the cooking and cleaning so you can plan your retirement!
- When we go on day-trips, it will be in several air-conditioned cars.
- Although we are bringing on-site various real-estate agents, locals, and expats who love to share, no one will pressure you to buy anything.
- Please review the Resources section (in the main menu) for details about transportation, driving and a lot of other need-to-know information.
- Car rentals are not cheap so if you can find another willing couple with the same ideas, it's best to share a ride and split the costs.
- However, the retreat will be taking you around to several areas, so check the retreat page for details.
- There is no smoking allowed anywhere on the retreat property or during any events except in a specifically designated smoking area outside. That also goes for incense and perfumes or any other type of fragrance. Our retreats are a fragrance-free environment.
- Of course! Some of us like it that way! But you won't really be alone. You are bound to make new friends.
- Yes. Contact us with details.
- No, but you can certainly meet them in town or have them pick you up to take you places.
- Participants in the retreat are paying for a certain experience - which is the reason we keep the group small and the agenda managed.
- We also consider all our retreats to be peace retreats - to be a relaxing environment where distractions and chaos are limited and managed.
- We enforce a Peace Policy. This includes a demand for a positive drama-free environment. For that reason, we will not tolerate any behavior that would be considered by the group to be judgmental, hurtful to another, or discriminatory in any way. We are accepting of all races, religions, and sexual orientation. We discourage conversations about politics and religion.
- If anyone acts in a way considered disruptive to the group, the person will be asked to leave the residence without refund.
- There will not be mental or physical health practitioners at the retreat. If you have physical, emotional or depression issues, we urge you to seek counseling or the care of a physician. Materials and information shared at the retreat are for general informational purposes only. The retreat itself and the content provided is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical diagnosis, treatment, or advice.
- By attending or participating in any of the retreats or activities, you acknowledge and agree to this disclaimer, and release all claims of liability on the retreat organizers, the places they are held and on other retreat participants.
