Solace= single or double occupancy | Adventure= Double occupancy/shared bed
Yelapa has no cars, just quaint walking trails on cobblestone & dirt roads. At the main beach, enjoy the lounge chairs with fresh food/drink service & wonderful restaurants along the way.
A beautiful mix of comfort & open air, we utilize 3 separate lodging spaces across from the beach with winding stone staircases, beautiful ocean views, home cooked breakfasts & infinity pool.
A perfect blend of artisan comfort in the jungle.
*Optional- Join us as we rotate teaching different styles of yoga & breath work every morning at our jungle suite, to the sounds of tropical birds. A wonderful opportunity to learn a healthy wellness regimen to take home.
Though each day has a fun group activity, it is NOT overly scheduled or busy. There is plenty of free time to explore the village or relax at the beach on your own. All excursions are included, but optional. It's your retreat, do what you'd like,
but we do have a ball where we're together!
Being a walking village, you'll appreciate the daily exercise & simplicity of the towns' friendly people as we walk through on our hikes to 2-3 beautiful waterfalls, enjoying a refreshing soak.
February is the perfect time for whale watching as they come in to the bay to give birth. It's very common to see mama's showing their babies the ropes as we're watching from just yards away.
Depending on the tide for clear water, we take a break from the boat to bask in the sea among schools of colorful fish, puffers & more.
Among the adventures, there is ample time to yourself. Wander the village, take a nap & all have access to the private pool at one of our lodging areas overlooking the beach.
This small village is home to a nationally awarded Folk Dancing team, a school program where students learn different cultural dances from all regions of Mexico. We are lucky to receive a special after dinner performance!
Welcome to the view of our home for the week,
WAY off the beaten path on the western coast. Fully equipped with private casitas, bar/restaurant, cliffside pool, miles of untouched beach below, and nothing/no one else.
Enjoy the most beautiful accommodations in the area, overlooking the ocean with endless beach.
No added excursions; this is for you to just BE. *Read disclaimer bottom of page.
Adding to the experience is having your own home. Our secluded, beautifully landscaped resort is made up of separate private casitas, each with unique artisan bathrooms & decor.

We'll offer yoga & breath work every morning on the patio with this view, which, aside from dinners, is our only scheduled activity. The days are yours. Time to just BE is an added experience to these mindful practices. Relax, cleanse & create a healthy wellness regimen to take home.
Enjoy the ocean view from the top.
If it's possible to tire of the sand, you can relax in the pool on underwater chaise lounges, or on the patio under the shade of natural palm umbrellas.
The winding stone staircase, lined with tropical vegetation, leads from the pool to the edge of the earth & strong waves of the deep tide ocean.(not suitable for swimming, but we visit a beautiful swimming beach nearby.)
As you can see, there's plenty of beach to roam free, sit in the sand, or soak up the sun.
Walk for miles in the sun & sand without the crowds or buildings along the way. Really!
All that is here are the few small private resorts tucked along the cliffs, a beach-front restaurant & a fenced area for sea turtles. Sea Turtles.
Though we have our own bar/restaurant on the property, we'll visit surrounding beaches for swimming, snorkeling & dining during the week, changing our scenery to even more scenery.
Breathtaking ocean views, tides & sunsets to help ignite your senses, emotions & creativity.
We created this retreat specifically with that in mind; a healing place for artists, musicians, writers, or anyone wanting to relax & just be.
Soak in the beauty of nature & simplified life.

This is a solace retreat. Remote & relaxing.
Tap into your thoughts & creativity in the beauty of the sea & unsurpassed sunsets. No night life, shopping or commercialism. Enjoy time alone,
or with another person for mindful connection.
The only daily agenda as a group is the optional morning yoga & evening dinners. The days are yours. We will visit 2 other beaches with different restaurants & option for swimming & snorkeling, but that's the extent of the 'excursions.' This is a time to reflect, relax poolside overlooking the ocean, or walk for miles along untouched beach. Great for writers, musicians, personal healing & peace of mind.
