This beautiful location is a Wellness Resort and Yoga Retreat Center nestled between the tropical jungle and the pristine sandy beach of Chacala, Mexico. Mar de Jade sits on the beach of Playa Chacala, a small charming Mexican fishing village that still retains a traditional way of life.
Easily accessed from Licenciado Gustavo Díaz Ordaz International Airport (PVR), just 90 minutes south, yet feels worlds apart from the big tourist developments. The town and surrounding areas have adventures to offer; from jungle hikes, surfing, ATV tours, whale watching and boating, to the simple pleasure of chilling on the soft sand and swimming in the warm ocean waters.
Come to nurture your body, inspire your soul, and cultivate your spiritual life. Whether you're coming on your own, with friends, or looking to meet like-hearted yogis, the natural beauty and peaceful atmosphere will awaken you.
During the retreat, delicious breakfast, lunch, and dinners will be provided. The meals are carefully prepared daily from scratch using fresh, local, and when possible, organic produce and ingredients. Many vegetables, fruits, and legumes come from the hotel's own 17-acre organic farm.
The menu is mainly vegetarian with chicken and seafood options. Guests will all eat meals together, family-style, in the open-air dining area overlooking the ocean. Purified drinking water is available and the hotel can accommodate food allergies such as gluten-free, dairy-free, peanut-free, and vegan requests.
There is a service bar “La Palapa” offering smoothies, fresh juices, espresso, cappuccinos. Please note that beverages are an additional cost.
You can book them prior or the day before, depending on how you're vibing.
Visit the petroglyphs (rock carvings) of Altavista, thought to be around 2,000 years old. The site is still a very important spiritual and ritual place for the Huichol Indigenous communities of the region. The guided trip is a 35-minute car ride each way and then an hour walk through the jungle to the petroglyph site.
Temazcal is a type of sweat lodge, which originated from pre-Hispanic Indigenous cultures in Mesoamerica. The word Temazcal comes from the Nahuatl (Aztec) word Temazcal ("house of heat"). In ancient Mesoamerica, it was used as part of a curative ceremony thought to purify the body, mind, and spirit.
Set sail for the afternoon aboard a privately chartered catamaran for an adventure at sea as you cruise across the magical pacific ocean. It's not uncommon to see dolphins, whales, and manta rays greet you along your journey.
DJ Crisanto will be playing music providing the soundtrack to this adventure as guests dance in the sunshine and share in the good vibes. Take a break in a secluded bay to enjoy snorkeling, paddleboarding, and swimming before heading home and enjoying the explosion of colors in the sunset along the way. Snacks, purified drinking water, and beverages will be provided.
Beginner lessons are only available at Chacala depending on the surf, which is hard to predict. For guaranteed beginner surf, Tortugas Beach or Sayulita are recommended.
This lesson takes place at La Lancha Beach (30 minutes drive from Sayulita). Transportation to Sayulita for non-surfers is available at 20 USD per person at below scheduled times.
A secluded surf break about 5 - 7 minutes boat ride away from the hotel beachfront. This wave is most suitable for intermediate surfers because it has a rocky bottom and steep take-off sections.
Please note that these excursions are operated by local coops and their availability, as well as rates, are subject to change without prior notice. Please be prepared to pay the tour operators directly in cash. Most excursions range between 25 - 40 USD per person.
