Why You Should Book Directly with Caribe Yoga Academy

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.24.1″]

We’re a boutique Yoga Academy and many of our students come from international locations around the world. We don’t use a fancy booking system, and though you may have seen us on some of the popular booking sites (BookYogaRetreats and RetreatNetwork) we prefer instead that you book with us directly.

Why we use our own reservation system:
  1. Reservation systems are costly and take a lot of time to maintain (we prefer to focus on providing the very best, authentic and tranquil learning environment for our students)
  2. Booking Sites take a large fee from our customers AND our academy (sometimes as much as 30% goes to the site… and not to our school).
Booking Directly with Caribe Yoga Academy means that:
  • Your deposit goes immediately to your benefit (instead of fees for an outside booking site)
  • You’re helping Caribe Yoga Academy support our amazing staff and continue to improve the OM at Cashew Hill facilities
  • You’re benefiting the local Puerto Viejo economy (we do our best to buy local and stay local… it’s how our community thrives!)
What to Expect When You Book:

We use good, old-fashioned PayPal and our website forms to take reservations and class deposits.

We know this may be a little different than booking a hotel or vacation… but completing your training at Caribe Yoga Academy isn’t just a normal experience. Help support our team, our family and the local economy in Puerto Viejo!

If you have any questions, you can always email us directly and we’ll be happy to address any concerns!
