Staying at Pura Vida Wellness Retreat is an experience unlike any other. The cabins are located in a jungle and a tropical garden situated on the hill just at the ocean shore. Most of the cabins have breathtaking views of the ocean and Yelapa bay, they were built just above the ocean. You may enjoy the ocean view right from your bed or a terrace. Each cabin has one to two queen size beds (Organic metal-free mattresses, organic, hypoallergenic pillows, organic bed sheets) with mosquito nets. There is also a very spacious cabin with a loft - two queen size beds downstairs and two upstairs.

Each cabin has a private bathroom (some with ocean views). They are furnished with Mexican furniture and artifacts selected individually for each cabin to offer a very unique look and feel. All cabins are spacious and individually designed. All lighting is soft white LED - energy saving, good for your eyes and health. The rooms were built in modern Palapa style, They are walled from three sides and open in the front, offering amazing jungle and ocean views, security and privacy, and fresh unpolluted air. There are also two fully enclosed rooms with air-conditioning.

Pure Vida eco-retreat is EMF free at most of the areas and night. There is Wi-Fi limited to certain hours in the common area. There are spots on the property where you can get cellular reception. Sacred Springs Mountain Retreat invites the guests to retreat from the media, computers, and phones. Unlike other hotels in the area, you are not limited just to your room. It’s a communal, spiritual retreat experience. Start your morning with yoga and end the evening with group meditation/inquiry, plus 5 rhythms and Qi gong happen two to three times per week (schedule changes seasonally).

You are welcome to walk on the paths and explore the exotic park with many quiet places to meditate, do yoga, get a massage, hang out at the meeting places, explore healthy vegetarian and Mexican cuisine from the kitchen. Or just enjoy the amazing views, swim in the infinity ocean water chlorine-free pool and soak in the hot tub. In Thalassotherapy, trace elements of magnesium, potassium, calcium, sodium, and iodide found in seawater are believed to be absorbed through the skin. You may also enjoy raw, organic treats, juices, and smoothies from our poolside juice bar.

There is also a Spiritual Cinema to enjoy in the evening inspirational movies or documentaries shown on the big projection screen. For cleansing and spiritual rejuvenation, they offer Temazcal [temasˈkal] - a type of sweat lodge used traditionally by pre- Hispanic Indigenous peoples of Mexico. The ceremonies have to be scheduled in advance. For meditative Vipassana walks there is a Labyrinth in the Zen Garden (completion in summer 2019). You will also find a way to enjoy your aloneness on the rocks by the ocean. The retreat center is at the Point, the area removed from the village - a 12-minute walk, just three-minute walk from a small beach and 20-25 minute walk from the main beach.

To ensure your meditative retreat experience, the retreat center does not allow loud music or alcohol at the property. You will be accommodated in a beautiful cabin that is located only a 10-minute walk from the village center, two-minute walk from the ocean, and a five-minute walk from the beach. With an amazing view of the Yelapa Bay, Pura Vida is a great place for this personal retreat holiday. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be served in the outdoor dining area of the main building at the top of the property with 180-degree views of the ocean and surrounding mountain range.

Enjoy your downtime on your terrace or in a hammock reading a book. With the town just minutes away, you can find music or dancing for an evening of adventure. Each room has its bathroom and heated shower. Each room also has its own safe to store your valuables for stress-free adventuring. Bed linens and towels are all provided.


Come relax, cleanse, and transform as you surround yourself with everything this incredible experience has to offer. Group healing therapies like Holistic Breathwork and Temazcal will be included.

This package includes 10 individual healing sessions such as massage, ozone therapy, Reiki, and Chinese Medicine. Personal moments of meditation on a quiet sea with deep blue waters, one daily yoga class Yin/Restorative, Chi-Gong, Conscious Dance, or Kundalini. As well as evening meditation with spiritual inquiry, and three vegetarian/vegan meals a day.

Discover the beautiful village of Yelapa Mexico at this week-long spiritual retreat that will bring restoration and harmony to your mind, body, and soul. The longer 7, 10, 14 - day program offers alternative healing of depression, stress, anxiety, trauma, PTSD, grief and loss, and detoxification, in a safe and supportive retreat environment.

Receive transforming of negative patterns and self-defeating behaviors resulting from birth/childhood trauma, abuse, accidents, surgeries, and other traumatic life events. Transformational Retreats offers emotional healing addressing the roots of unconscious patterns.

The program integrates Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy with many mindfulness practices. In addition to everything that Holistic Healing Program offers, you will also receive more personal attention and care with daily sessions and double sessions every other day (every day except the day of the departure).

Holistic Breathwork™/Counselling/Spiritual Life Coaching/Compassionate Communication sessions and three weekly body/energy work sessions. You will learn breathing and relaxation techniques to expel built-up toxins and negativity; meditation, mindfulness, and inquiry practices to rediscover your true self, and release the illusion of separation to live in joy and peace in the present moment.

You will also get support to learn and create intentions and plans to continue your practices after the retreat on your own at home.

Yoga and meditation

Yoga and meditation classes are suitable for everyone; from a beginner to a longer practicing yogi. The classes focus on Yin and use breathing techniques such as pranayama. Each session has time devoted to meditation, self-awareness, and consciousness.

  • Deep tissue, orthopedic, acupressure, and Swedish massage
  • Acupuncture
  • Chinese medicine
  • Cupping
  • Holistic breathwork™/Counseling
  • Reiki

A temazcal is a type of sweat lodge that originated with pre-hispanic Indigenous peoples in Mesoamerica. The word temazcal comes from the Nahuahtl word temāzcalli (“house of heat”) or possibly from the Aztec teme (to bathe).

Temazcal has several health and spiritual benefits said to help detox the body, mind, and soul. It is said to bring about spiritual awakening and deep healing. The ceremony is led by a shaman or local leader with chanting, herbs, and other rituals.


Your retreat schedule will offer you plenty of time for being alone, and some time for group classes or trips, and, if you book Holistic Healing Retreat, one individual healing session per day. If you book Personal Transformation Retreat, you will be receiving every day breathwork/counseling or group sessions and four bodywork sessions per week.
