During the retreat, you will be staying at the eco-luxury Prana Del Mar Retreat Center in Baja, Mexico, less than a half hour from Cabo San Lucas, near the southern end of the Baja peninsula and nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the Sierra del Laguna mountains.

This desert oasis offers 15 luxurious guest suites with swimming pool, spa, and a beautiful yoga studio. All rooms and suites have polished travertine floors and worktops, custom teak furniture, pillow-top beds, luxury organic linens, daily maid service, and organic bathroom products. The rooms also feature large terraces and balconies with ocean views. The two-room suites even feature complete stainless steel or granite kitchens and spacious living room areas.

As you settle into your deluxe room at Prana del Mar, gazing out at the ocean from a chaise lounge on your personal terrace, you will feel your cares melt away. You will drift off into a deep sleep listening to the sound of the crashing waves as they break on the beach.

All rooms have polished travertine floors, pillow-top mattresses with 300 thread-count organic sheets, beautiful, custom-crafted teak and rattan furniture, and travertine bathrooms with organic bath towels.

The downstairs rooms have king beds, an additional seating area, and an en suite bath. The upstairs suites have two queen beds, private bath, and a living or dining room with full kitchen. All rooms have views of the ocean and the gardens with one or two decks or patios.

Prana del Mar has been awarded five stars by Eco Hotels of The World. The resort solar panels as its sole source of power and all waste water is treated on site and then used to irrigate the garden. And if you purchase carbon offsets for your flight the resort will credit you that amount towards a spa treatment, surf lesson, or excursion.

This retreat will be held near the southern tip of the Baja peninsula, just north of Cabo San Lucas. It is about 15 minutes outside of town on a remote stretch of beach on the Pacific Ocean, well away from the beaten path.

Mobile / communication information

The retreat center has a dedicated computer room where you can either set up your own laptop or use the guest computer. The Wi-Fi does not reach the guest rooms, so be prepared to work in the computer room, the library, or by the pool.

There is cell phone coverage from Mexico’s largest mobile communications company, Telcel. If you have AT&T or another provider that partner with Telcel, you will have coverage at the retreat center.

Electricity information

All of North America uses the same standard plug for 110V connections, so if you are coming from the United States or Canada, your equipment will work without an adapter.

What to bring

You are advised to bring a headlamp or flashlight, camera, sunglasses, hat, sunblock, an extra pair of contacts if you wear them, yoga clothes and sunscreen. For hiking, be sure to have a lightweight backpack to carry your personal belongings, chargers for electronic devices, and shoes you can hike around in (closed athletic shoe). No need to bring your heavy hikers.

For snorkeling, please bring rash guard shirts, board shorts, or something you will feel comfortable moving in. For kayaking, please bring long sleeve protection as you will be in the sun for hours.

Passport / visa

Passport is required to enter Mexico.

Local expenses / money information

The retreat center does not run tabs for services so you will need some cash. US Dollars are readily accepted and the town of Todos Santos is nearby if you run out of cash. Please note that large bills (Franklins) can be difficult to break. It's a good idea to bring along 1's, 5's, and 10's. If you go on an adventure way out of the main tourist areas, it can be helpful to have some Mexican Pesos available.

You will enjoy various exciting activities:

Guided beach hike on the 19 acre property

You can step right off the retreat center’s property and wander the beach in either direction, scramble over the rocky points at both ends, and walk for miles. You can follow goat trails and arroyos in a variety of directions to trace the shoreline or to climb a nearby hill and get a sweeping vista.

Kayaking and snorkeling

The half day Three Bay adventure tour takes place along the tourist corridor between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo on the Sea of Cortez. After a short instructional lesson, you start kayaking from the Twin Dolphin Beach into the beautiful horseshoe-shaped bay of Santa Maria where you will snorkel amongst colorful sea life.

You will then proceed onto the white sand of Chileno to relax on the beach or venture back into the clear blue waters for another snorkel. Both bays have reef environments, which makes this the best local snorkel trip!

Sunset baby turtle release

One of the special excursions Alchemy Tours have planned is a special baby sea turtle release. Alchemy Tours will be working through a local non-profit group Asupmatoma and the timing for you to participate in assisting the baby turtles is just perfect!

    "Silvia Mordini is a teacher of teachers, and a wonderful mentor who compassionately evokes self-inquiry and transformation. Without a doubt, Silvias friendship and mentorship have helped to shape my path to service, adventure, and stepping outwards of my bounds and into a world wide open."

    "I honestly recommend this training for anyone who enjoys practicing yoga and is interested in personal development and growth. It is an amazing journey you take to know yourself and have a better understanding of who you are. A beautiful, enlightening experience that I would do all over again. It has developed, supported, and empowered me in my life."

    "I am impressed on how hard Silvia try to meet everyones schedule, it cant be easy. Thanks to Silvia's dedication and assurance I can flow through yoga poses, I am now actually playing with yoga more and listening to what my body inspires me to do instead of trying to do yoga like everyone else. Yoga has become so much more an enriching experience for me rather than a physical struggle. I am very grateful for all the help she has given me."

    "They really planned an incredible trip. I really lucked out as they not only supplied me with a wonderful yoga group and practice for the week but each day was chock full of things to participate in if I so wished. They gave us access to the real deal Bali by incorporating biking, tours, decadent meals, transport, so many activities, beach time, talks, etc.They have great taste and are very down to earth. They think of everything and are really there to answer questions and provide great resource to things you want to explore. Silvia is such a loving and inspiring yoga instructor. These guys are definitely doing what they were meant to do in life. Great people, great trip. I look forward to doing another trip with them soon!"

    "I attended Alchemy Tours’ yoga retreat in Bali, and I can honestly say it was the most fulfilling travel experience I’ve ever had. It was hard to come back to reality, and not just in the typical “I’ve taken much needed time off to relax and it’s hard to get back in my routine” sort of way… But more, going on this trip made me understand that there was a much greater disparity between the potential for happiness in my life and what I considered to be my “normal” state than I had realized – and that they were further apart than they ever should be. To me, the experience with Alchemy Tours can be divided into two categories: vacation and personal reflection. As a vacation, it was amazing. White water rafting through a jungle ravine, a relaxing bike tour through Balinese rice patties, beaches, exposure to local culture, great restaurants and a gorgeous place to stay that our group had all to ourselves. It was just organized enough to feel active without feeling too busy. Previously, I wouldn’t have asked for more than that in a trip, and it was awesome in that way. But the part that really surprised me was the way Silvia’s constant positivity, enthusiasm and no-pressure encouragement would really make me reflect on the person I am, and I began to conceptualize the things I could change to improve my life as a whole."

  • Review by Elisabeth G.

    "I had the best vacation ever with Alchemy Tours this Spring. I wanted to do a yoga retreat with equal parts relaxing, yoga and exploring and it was just that. The resort was gorgeous, not your typical overrun Mexico tourist spot but a beautiful, simple, chic bungalow style resort in the jungle and with its own beach. I was skeptical going on vacation with a bunch of strangers but everyone was lovely and I came back refreshed and happy, as evidenced by my yelp profile pic nuzzling a Mexican beach puppy. "

    "Silvia is an inspiring teacher and really helped me to look at what I wanted out of the trip and myself when it ended. Normally my yoga classes are short and intense but this was a wonderful change of pace. I approach most things cynically including yoga talks and journaling but they yoga’d the cynic out of me and I couldn’t have been happier with the experience. Oh and it was an amazing price. And I’m going again next year, the ultimate vote of confidence."

  • Review by Dawn H.

    "My husband and I went on a yoga retreat to Xinalani with Alchemy Tours. This was our first yoga retreat so we weren’t sure what to expect. Vacation for us means getting outside, being active, eating delicious food and perhaps a few cocktails. This trip provided all of the above and more. Alchemy Tours provided us with a ton of information and helped us set up a scuba diving and surfing excursion. They also arranged for the group to give back to the community we were staying in, which was very inspiring. There was a planned group activity every day which was included and optional. Everything was optional without judgement, even the yoga classes. Classes were taught every morning and evening, with a few workshop options throughout the week. Yoga classes were some of the best we have ever taken. There was a great variety that incorporated fun, music and mindfulness in a way that is rare to find. Every meal was fantastic, fresh and delicious! Every morning I woke up looking forward to that days fresh squeezed juice (and of course coffee). We do not have any dietary restrictions, but many on the trip did, the chef was masterful in handling all of the gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian, pescetarian, and vegan request. We will absolutely travel with Alchemy tours again and recommend them to everyone we know."

  • Review by Maddie L. Haramara

    "Every activity during the week was carefully planned and extremely purposeful, however, there was no feeling of pressure to do things that were not of interest to you. The yoga was great. As beginner yogi I felt welcomed and confident even though advanced yogis seemed to be enjoying the classes and flows as much as I did. The yoga also varied daily. It was always interesting and I was consistently benefiting in various ways from the classes. Best of all, Silvia and Malia assisted in so much besides just yoga. There were chakra talks, happiness coachings, astrology readings, dancing, meditating, photo shoots, game playing and scavenger hunts. The days I spent in Mexico flew by faster and more enjoyably than I could have ever anticipated. Whether you are a hard-core yogi and spiritualist, or someone just looking to get away from the stresses of life I would recommend you to Alchemy Tours. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. I will definitely be booking with them again!"

  • Review by Laura

    "I’ve been on two retreats with Alchemy Tours – one in Bali and one in Mexico, and botanical holding hands loved them both (in fact, we are currently planning to rope our friends into joining us for another!). The two experiences were entirely different to one another, but both contained a wonderful balance of excellent yoga, guided introspection and great fun. Silvia’s the most talented yoga instructor I know, with the added depth of having a background in professional training and development and a natural affinity for study. These talents enable her to deliver elegantly constructed retreats where her yoga classes, self study exercises and fun activities are all weaved together over the week to complement the retreat theme. You will be amazingly nourished by a week which will no doubt include incredible food, exploration of the place you’re in, development of your yoga practice, new activities, personal insights and lots and lots of laughter. I can’t recommend joining them highly enough."

  • Review by Megan K.

    "I took a trip with Silvia and Alchemy tours in 2012, it was absolutely life changing, botanical jumping beautiful, easy and fun. They are friendly, fun positive energy, and have thought of all the details to create a trip that is both easy, enjoyable and potent. Each person on the trip was amazing, and the activities and nurturing environment of the resort they chose worked beautifully to create new friendships and a great group dynamic. Expect a great time, great insights and to return home refreshed and with a happier outlook on life with wider possibilities! I really can see the whole course of my life shifted with this trip, and it is completely wonderful. I would not hesitate to recommend a trip with Alchemy Tours!"
