Venue Highlights

Nestled between lush jungle and emerald ocean, the Xinalani – a luxurious, eco-friendly retreat center will be a sanctuary of wellness and serenity for our practice. With six stunning yoga spaces, a temazcal (ancient sweat lodge), beach club, lounge bar, sand terrace, oceanfront spa, and a restaurant for yogis, there will be many ways to nurture your body, mind and soul.


All of the casitas and rooms are spacious, palm-thatched roofed cabins built on stilts. They were designed with, built and elegantly furnished by local artisans. We know you’ll love their calm and serene energy. Read more here: (contact info blocked)


With a menu designed especially for yogis, Xinalani offers healthy, gourmet vegetarian and non-vegetarian Mexican meals. Special diet considerations can be accommodated with two weeks advance notice.


Take the early flight into Puerto Vallarta International airport (PVR) on the 19th and fly out the afternoon of the 27th. We will have round-trip shuttle service from the airport to the retreat center. To be relaxed, we recommend flying in a day early and stay near the airport. Details available upon request.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

To feed my soul so that I may return to my students with more inspiration and love to share! Jennifer

Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
