Yoga Travels is a private Canadian company established in 2008 to promote travel to distinct destinations. The Yoga Travels tours are operated by Voyages Club Adventure Travel a TICO registered travel agency (TICO registration number 2575952). Be aware as many yoga tours and retreats are not insured. Our yoga, taught by Janice Varuna and guest teachers, includes Hatha, Yoga Nidra, Restorative, Yin and Classic Kundalini for all levels. These distinct destinations are hand picked locales that allow you to experience an out of the ordinary tour, creating your own footprints not following in the footprints of the masses. Travelling with us in small groups, ensures that you are receiving personal attention, similar to private concierge tours, at a fraction of the cost.
We cater to small groups, max 12. These small groups allow you to get to experience our distinct destinations up close and personal and are easier on the environment. You get to meet your fellow travellers quickly and share a unique journey together.
How much money will I need?
Keeping in mind that most costs are included, youʼll need some extra cash for drinks, shopping, souvenirs, and tips for the guide and driver (suggested rate $5-10 USD/ day each). We suggest a minimum of $400 USD for basics. You know your spending habits best. If you will be shopping for hand crafts, artwork, etc. you may choose to bring more money with you. ATM's are available however we suggest that you bring USD cash as often the ATM's do not accept Western debit cards. Better to go home with some cash than not have enough money for that special purchase.
Travelling alone is never lonely on our tours. With our personalized service you can have as much time as you like alone or with the group. Group travel allows for the safety and comfort of like-minded people with whom to share experiences.
