FROM THE ACTUAL RETREAT
Our Previous Sayulita Yoga Retreat
Kierstie & Lisa Mello took a full week to rejuvenate and rest on this previous Sayulita yoga retreat along Mexico’s Nayarit Coastline. We indulged in high-vibe vinyasa mornings and deeply restful and restorative evening yin sessions. We found a profound connection with self and source through heart-centered yoga, meditation, nurturing local cuisine, pristine sunset views, and jungle wonders. The transformation was a byproduct of the opportunity to take a beat, release negative thought patterns and find new routines that support deep wellness within and without.
FAQs and Safety Precations
What airport do I fly into?
To reach your Sayulita yoga retreat you will need to book an international roundtrip flight to Puerto Vallarta (PVR). Airfare is not included in retreat pricing.
What are the accommodations like?
Each cabana is private and secluded and has its own private bathroom with a shower, a flush toilet, hot and cold water and organic soap. The private cabanas are open-air with no windows or screens. Hammocks are provided inside most cabanas depending on the space available. Sleep in a super comfy bed with hand-woven sheets and enjoy the organic cotton towels after a refreshing shower. Beach and pool towels will be provided.
The dormitory is a large open room and will accommodate up to eight people in individual beds. There are two bathrooms, one at each end of the dorm, to accommodate up to four people each. In each bathroom, there are two showers, two sinks and a toilet.
What is the weather like in Sayulita?
The Central Pacific Coast of Mexico is surrounded by jungle and receives 345 days of sunshine per year.
The months of March, April, May, October and November are warm (upper 70s to low 80s).
Are meals included in my program cost?
Yes, 3 delicious and healthy gourmet meals a day are provided and made from only the freshest natural and local ingredients. The menu is chosen daily by the chef based on the ingredients that are available. The always-changing daily menu includes seafood or vegetarian dishes. Special dietary restrictions or requirements can be accommodated. Please be sure to note these in your registration form.
Coffee and freshly squeezed juice are offered in the mornings. Tea, purified water and fresh fruit water are available all day. Alcoholic beverages are available for purchase at lunch and dinner.
Is WiFi available?
There is no WiFi at Haramara Retreat. However, if you would like to use your phone during your stay, you can purchase international data or you can go to one of the internet cafes in the town of Sayulita, which is a five-minute taxi ride away.
Do I need to get trip insurance?
Yes! Trip insurance is 100% mandatory for this retreat. But don’t worry, it’s affordable and will ultimately protect your investment in case of any unforeseen events. This insurance must be purchased within a week after booking your retreat.
Do I need a visa to travel to Mexico?
As an American citizen, no, you do not. During your flight to Puerto Vallarta, you will be given a document to fill out which you will then need to present to the immigration official upon your entry into Mexico. BE SURE YOU KEEP THIS PIECE OF PAPER FOR YOUR DEPARTURE. You will be asked for this upon check-in for your return flight home. If you do not have this piece of paper there will be a fine and the hassle of redoing all of this paperwork on the spot!
Is there electricity?
There is no electricity in the cabanas. They are illuminated at night with oil lamps and candles. You will be unable to use any small electrical appliances like hairdryers, curling irons or electric razors. There is no outdoor lighting so you will need to bring a flashlight or a headlamp for use at night. There are electrical outlets in the dining room, pool terrace and yoga shalas for recharging electronic devices and batteries. It is the same voltage as the U.S. so no converter is needed.
Are gratuities included?
Tips for the kitchen, dining and housekeeping staff are not included in your Sayulita yoga retreat price. We suggest that you budget $15 U.S. per day/person or $100 US per week/person. This will be shared amongst all the service staff. You may leave this with the hotel manager at the end of your stay. Gratuities for the spa staff need to be paid directly to them at the time of service. All gratuities should be paid in cash.
