Accommodation

Private thatched cabanas

You will feel at one with nature, waking up with the birds, sleeping within one of Ak'bol's seven thatched cabanas on the sea and within gardens, all with sea view and breeze. Each cabana will house a maximum of two to three students comfortably with one queen bed and two twin beds within lofts lined with plantain shutters.

The cabanas have outdoor showers, private front porches, hammocks, and five-gallon hot and cold water dispenser included with mini-fridge. Daily housekeeping with no bedding changes, towels changed on the third day to conserve water and energy.

Village rooms

Welcome community living on the lagoon! This building has beautiful gardens and houses 30 single rooms/double room/ and adjoining room options (four), with two large island-chic shared bath and shower area/locker rooms - one for men and women or co-ed. Private locker per room for toiletries complete with mahogany sinks and conch shelled faucets, bamboo showers, plenty of toilets and changing areas.

The beds, one/two twins or one queen (limited for couples only), are on top of a wooden stage with plenty of drawers underneath and lockable storage for luggage, chairs, reading lights, and fan per room on either end of the building. The first and second floors are community lounging areas overlooking the lagoon. Great sunsets and good spot for bird and crocs watching too.

Program

Awake Mindful Living retreat schedule offers plenty of space and choices as to how you spend your time. Imagine each day beginning in sacred silence - barefoot walking meditation on the beach, or seated meditation in the ocean-side practice area. After a light, healthy breakfast, enjoy some facilitation and yoga. Reflective silence continues until lunch.

Mid day is the ideal time to take an excursion. Each day there is an offering prior to dinner. On a few special evenings, you'll enjoy yoga Nidra, shamanic drumming, and conscious dance. You will connect on-site as a group to envision the perfect container and amount of structure. Awake Mindful Living goal is that you feel safe, secure, and cared for so you can settle in and experience your awakened nature.

Be lovingly guided through the stages of meditation that often lead to a direct experience of your true, unlimited nature. Take your formal practice off the mat/cushion and into each moment you experience in this tropical paradise and into your everyday lives back home.

Retreat location

A place to unplug. The seed was planted in '94 to get away from the cold, sell out, pack up the kids and move to Belize. Owners Milio and Kirsten made the dream a goal by cultivating ideas each day, the goal manifested into a clear vision and the dream became a reality. Welcome to life unplugged at Ak'bol, Maya for "heart of the village", Belize’s first yoga retreat and family eco-resort.

Join Awake Mindful Living in the beachfront sanctuary, located on the tranquil North side of Belize’s largest island, la Isla Bonita: Ambergris Caye, just a quarter-mile from the second largest Barrier Reef in the world and a bike ride away from the old fishing village of San Pedro. Ak'bol hosts nightly guests, yoga, and wellness retreats year-round as well as weddings, full moon gatherings and sacred ceremonies. Open to all walks of life. Ak'bol has a wonderful staff, many who have been with Awake Mindful Living for many years and they love yogis!

How to get there

Recommended Airports

Arrival by airplane by Tropic Air

Ak'bol will reserve all Tropic Air tickets for the group directly from Philip S. W. Goldson International Airport (BZE) 157.75 USD return per person. The tickets are reserved ahead of time so there is no waiting, and guests will pay for their tickets directly at check-in before boarding the plane, with a credit card or cash.

Arrival by water taxi

You can take a 25 USD to 30 US taxi directly from the international airport to the water taxi terminal in Belize City for roughly 30 minutes. The boat ride over is 15 USD one way per person and roughly a one and half hours ride. There are a daily schedule and two water taxis, both are walking distance away from one another. Ak'bol recommends taking Tropic Air over if landing after 3 p.m. so guests can arrive in time for the welcome dinner at 6 p.m.

From San Pedro town (where the water taxi and tropic air puddle jumper arrives) to Ak'bol, when guests arrive at San Pedro, it is easy to take any land taxi directly from town to Ak'boL for roughly 15 USD to 17 USD one way, paid directly to taxi driver. You can negotiate first to lower disappointments.
