MY ARRIVAL FLIGHT LANDS AT 7:30 PM, CAN I STILL MAKE THE LAST BOAT?
We request that our guests select an arrival flight that lands no later than 4:00 pm, it makes things much easier for the boat transfer. Our last boat service leaves at 6:00 pm from a little fisherman town called Boca de Tomatlán, 45 min south of Puerto Vallarta Airport (PVR).
Traveling by boat at night is not recommended for safety reasons. For that matter, if you cannot be at the pier at 6:00 pm we recommend you spend the night in Puerto Vallarta and catch an early boat in the morning.

MY DEPARTURE FLIGHT LEAVES AT 7:00 AM, HOW CAN I BE AT THE AIRPORT AT 5:00 AM?
We do recommend our guests to select a departure flight that takes off no earlier than 11:00 am, it makes things much easier for the boat transfer. Our first boat service leaves at 8:00 am from Xinalani.
Traveling by boat at night is not recommended for safety reasons. For that matter, if you have to be at the airport very early in the morning, we recommend you spend the night in mainland Puerto Vallarta and catch an early taxi to the airport in the morning.

IS XINALANI ACCESSIBLE TO PEOPLE WITH LIMITED MOBILITY?
Unfortunately not. On the contrary, 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.
