Caution: Xinalani is not accessible to people with limited mobility
It was not possible to adapt Xinalani to make it accessible to people with limited mobility. On the contrary, because of our very location and setting, getting to Xinalani requires a certain level of physical fitness. Xinalani was designed for people in search of some kind of adventure. To get there, you will have to travel by panga, a small (25-30 ft) fiber glass mexican boat with an outboard engine. You will most probably wet your feet and knees as you will jump off the boat on to the beach alla Indiana Jones! Our retreat center is built on a very steep terrain and there are many many stairs, and no elevator, which is let's face it, a once in a lifetime opportunity to get back in shape.
