Imagine waking up here.. smelling the sweet smell of the fresh air as your luxury eco casita allows the ocean breeze in to greet you and say "good morning".

You gently roll out of your comfortable bed and casually stroll out of your casita onto the sand which leads you to the sea.. what better way to welcome in the fresh day than saying hello to the ocean with your toes?

Take your time here, slow down, allow the day to begin at your pace and take in deep rejuvenating breaths. You are here. You did it. You gifted yourself this time away and it is JUST FOR YOU. When you are ready, you make your way to join the rest of us for breakfast, yoga, and the rest of the day as we enjoy the benefits of what our retreat has to offer.

Excursions! We will have adventures! Below are some that will be offered and included in the cost of the retreat.

We will discover sea turtle conservation with La Tortuga Viva. We will be guided on a short nature walk though Playa Viva reserve to the sanctuary where sea turtle nests are protected. We can get involved in the conservation work and assist baby turtle release, depending on Mother Nature!

​We will go on a snorkeling adventure! We will take a boat from beautiful Zihuatanejo bay to a remote coral reef with calm waters and witness magnificent aquatic life. Our guide, Paco or Fred, will be with us in the water giving us tips and pointing out the wonders below. Paco and Fred are certified SCUBA instructors and have extensively explored the depths of Guerrero’s coast line.


We will participate in a Temazcal Ceremony at Playa Larga!
We will experience a local indigenous purification ceremony in what is known as a Temazcal (originating from the Nahuatl word temāzcalli, “house of heat”, aka sweatlodge). Enter the handcrafted ceramic dome to sweat it out, set intentions, and connect with the earth and the fire, guided by a local female shaman who helped to create this sacred space. Offerings of ceremonial songs and flowers are made as the fire heats the interior. Come ready to sweat and smile.

 I invite you to join me for this deeply beautiful retreat in one of the most tranquil and relaxing places on Earth!
