The rest of the payment must be done until 30 days before the retreat start date.

Together with the deposit you must submit this participant agreement form signed . Guests who fail to do so, may be subject to an automatic cancellation and the policy below will apply.
Retreat Cancellations Definitions
"Cancellation" is defined as not attending your scheduled retreat, including postponing or rescheduling.
"You" refers to the guest booking at the retreat.
"We" refers to Âncora Retreat .
It is your responsibility to read and understand our cancellation policy before making a reservation.
We are committed to providing a high retreat, have very limited spaces and maintain a standard of never cancelling a retreat with guests booked on it; therefore we expect to receive only firm bookings from intended guests.
Naturally, no one books with the intention of canceling or postponing their retreat, but unexpected things do happen, so please consider purchasing travel cancellation insurance.
A portion of your payment may be used as credit for another retreat within one year of your original retreat date.
We will gladly transfer your credit to another guest for the same retreat you originally booked, with the same level of accommodations.
Depending on when you cancel, cancellation fees may apply.
Fees are determined by the following schedule:
- If you cancel more than 90 days before your retreat start date, 90% of your payment may be applied to another Âncora Retreat within one year of your original retreat start date.
- If you cancel 60 - 89 days before your retreat start date, 75% of your payment may be applied to another Âncora Retreat within one year of your original retreat dates.
- If you cancel 45 - 59 days before your retreat start date, 50% of your payment may be applied to another Âncora Retreat within one year of your original retreat start date.
- If you cancel 30 - 44 days before your retreat start date, 30% of your payment may be applied to another Âncora Retreat within one year of your original retreat start date.
*** If you do not use this credit within one year, you will be refunded 0% of your original payment (whether that is a deposit or full payment).
- If you cancel 29 days or less before your retreat start date, you will forfeit your entire payment.
Exceptions to our policy cannot be made for any reason.
We do not offer credit for arriving late or leaving early.
