Riviera Maya Mastermind and Yucatan Media Trip Save the Date!


This is aight mastermind and retreat in Riviera Maya followed by a 2-night media trip in Yucatan, Mexico.

Riviera Maya Mastermind

Retreat/Mastermind: I’m working directly with one of the top resorts in Riviera Maya for our mastermind location. We’ll meet there for three days and focus on learning sessions focusing on everything from writing, photography and, social media. We might even have some special guests come to talk about all things travel blogging!

The cost for the retreat/mastermind is estimated at $60 per person*.  This will confirm your spot on the trip and includes food and accommodations, and airport pick up. It’s just about everything for the first 3 nights (except gratuities. I will get a cost for this in the next week or two). This cost is to merely cover the expenses*.
