Shop handmade goods from local artisans and experience some of the most beautiful handmade Oaxacan art on the streets right by the beach.

And, as if art and handmade goods weren't enough, the Oaxacan people are also famous for their unique cuisine and culinary arts. You will experience some of the freshest, local, and delicious food. 

A quick five to seven-minute walk brings you right to the Ocean where you can go for a swim or a quick dip to cool off. Just a few more minutes and you'll arrive at the neighboring beach where you can you enjoy a nice walk along the beach or curl up with a good book. Each beach village has it's own unique and textured vibe, so we highly recommend visiting them all. 

There are Yoga Studios and Dance centers for getting your movement on, and some of the local business' offer Movies under the stars at night. The village is vibrant and alive, but also quaint, simple, and incredibly convenient. 

What's it like?

We rent out a small gated community of thatched-roof bungalows, called La Secreta. They open to each other, connected by stone paths, and surrounded by the lush native flora and fauna.  

Each bungalow has a kitchen, a bathroom, and amazing views of the Jungle and Ocean. You will be provided with breakfast foods to stock your kitchen with. Fresh yogurt & milk, fruits, locally made granola, eggs, and fresh bread. 

The bungalows with shared rooms are included in the Retreat cost. For an additional cost there are a limited number of private rooms with a private bath available.  

There is a large gathering area, with a small cooling pool, amazing views of the Ocean and hills, and an outdoor dining table- where you will eat Meals together. 


Where is it?

We hold our retreat in a small Village called, Mazunte. 

Mazunte originally was a small turtle fishing village. Turtles became protected and it has evolved into an eco-tourist town with beautiful beaches, protected wildlife, a small fishing community, a circus, and a vibrant and varied national and international community.  The town has its own daily local offerings of yoga, African dance classes, ecstatic dance, paddle boarding, salsa dancing and cafes.

Located adjacent to Punta Cometa, an ancient astronomical viewing point where you can see both the sunset and the Moonrise over the ocean, Mazunte was awarded the status of Pueblo Magico- magic village.  Surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, alive with dolphins, whales, and turtles, Mazunte, Mexico is wonderous medicine for the body and soul.

For the adventurous, it is forty minutes drive to the world famous surf spot Puerto Escondido. For those needing more rest the beaches and hammocks of Mazunte will rock you gently home to yourself.
