LBJ Adventures Mexico Yoga Retreat Program

After you arrive on Cozumel Island, you will be greeted by a personal guide from LBJ Adventures to go to the resort. Meet your fellow participants during your welcoming ceremony followed by a gentle yoga practice and group dinner. You will wake up to a tropical day loaded with adventure. Join a poolside yoga practice where you will explore pranayama techniques, a Vinyasa flow, and a short meditation followed by a healthy breakfast.

Walk to the dock, jump on a boat, and experience two amazing drift dives in warm tropical waters. Rest for a while in a hammock or in your ocean-view room and then join a guided journaling session followed by a group dinner in town at a restaurant located outside of the traditional tourist area. On the non-dive days, you can explore the Mayan ruins and the Mayan chocolate factory, eat lunch in town, and visit small boutique shops.

On the last night of the trip, enjoy a sunset yoga practice on the beach with local yogis and enjoy cocktails during social hour. On the last day, say goodbye to your new friends during your final yoga practice and a closing ceremony.

For beginners, you will get an open water dive certification, and for certified scuba divers, you will have four days of diving, one night dive, and unlimited shore dives. If you prefer not to dive, LBJ Adventures can facilitate other activities for all non-divers based on your preferences. These could include snorkeling tours, bicycle tours, or other activities. Just let them know what you are interested in.

Cozumel is Mexico's largest Caribbean Island and has a subtropical climate. Most of the scuba diving sites are located in Cozumel Reefs National Marine Park, which protects the second largest barrier reef system in the world.

This location was chosen by LBJ Adventures as Carrie and Steve have traveled here on multiple occasions and have had time to experience the amazing diving, to explore restaurants and find amazing local food, and to find cultural gems that many tourists will never have time to experience.
