How to get to Chalananda?

You can hire a Taxi from the airport or anywhere in Guadalajara city, directly to Chalananda. If you do so, make sure to specify to the taxi driver to take you to: Villa Corona, Chimulco (the water Park in which Chalananda is based), don’t tell them to take you to Chalananda because they will not know where this is. We are also providing private transportation from these two places that will cost you less depending on the number of passengers. For more info about this service, email: edubetancourt@gmail.com

How to get to Guadalajara, Jalisco (GDL)?

The best way is to fly directly into Guadalajara International Airport (Don Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla).
You can also fly into the following international airports in Mexico: Puerto Vallarta, Cancun, Mexico City.
From all these you can connect with one of the local low cost airlines that fly into Guadalajara:
www.volaris.com
www.vivaaerobus.com
www.interjet.com
If you are flying into Puerto Vallarta or Mexico City you can also take a bus to Guadalajara.
We recommend checking these options and see what works best for you.

Is it possible to stay in Chalananda before and after the retreat?

Yes it is possible. Please contact us if you would like to do that.

Is it safe?

Chalananda is inside a private water park that is very safe and secure. Jalisco has always been a tourist friendly state but in the last years Mexico has seen an upsurge in drug related violence. Although tourists and travelers are hardly ever targeted we advise you to take necessary precautions if you are staying or traveling in Mexico

What is the weather like in Jalisco around Oct?

This area of Jalisco has one of the best climates in the world. During our fall retreats, the weather is cool in the evening and in the morning, (min. 6 C) and warm during the day (max. 27 C) Occasional rains are also expected.

What about sanitation?

No problem, we only advise you to take precaution with street food before and after the retreat.

What About Credit Cards, Cash, Exchange Rates & Money Changers?

The exchange rate is approximately $13.00 Pesos = US$1.00, but it is always fluctuating so check before coming. We do not accept credit cards. Banks for money changing services you can find in the pueblo Villa Corona just outside the retreat center and an ATM Machine can be found inside the retreat center.

Prerequisites

Prerequisites

We do require require you have some acrobatic skills. We need you to honestly and accurately asses whether the following skills are accessible/of ease to you (while working with someone of similar skill level) as a base OR flyer, at the time of application you must be able to accomplish the skills without a spotter helping (they can be there for safety).

On your application you will be asked to rate your comfort level in the following…. while they are not prerequisites, the more experience you come with the more you will gain out of the training!

Send us a video showing a 1-2 minute acrobatic flow of your choice.

The video should represent where you are at skill-wise, however, it doesn’t need to be all of the craziest things you can do—think elements from the preqs! The video also doesn’t need to be of high production quality, a quick one on your cell phone is fine.
