~Lodging and Meals

beautiful open air palapas set in among bougainvillia, coconut, avocado, and palm trees in a small canyon that leads to waterfall.  ~Inspiring homemade family style vegetarian meals which with fresh juices daily served on an outdoor dining patio.

~The Retreat:

two daily yoga practices on an open air deck with flocks of birds flying overhead: Asana, meditation techniques, breathing exercises, Qi gong, and writing prompts to inspire our self inquiry. In the evenings we will gather to chant watching the sunset on the beach or in the gardens at Los Naranjos. It is an exceptional place with enough time to deepen your practice and nurture some long lasting rejuvenation.

To be of service

We work in collaboration with

Yelapa Animal Project

The Yelapa Animal Project strives to help any animal, domesticated or wild, in Yelapa that may be sick, unwanted/homeless, neglected or abused. We have created an animal sanctuary in Yelapa that houses our rescued animals and works to release them when wild, to find them new forever homes when domestic and adoptable or give them refuge in our sanctuary when not. We will have the opportunity to visit and have an educational tour with the founder and friend, Dana Hutson. We will learn about more ways of getting involved and supporting the health and well being of all beings.

Since 2015 they have successfully treated hundreds of local animals and organized dozens of spay-neuter-vaccination clinics. Facilitated free, rabies vaccination event working in conjunction with the government. As well as tripling the number of animals treated from previous years.
