La Manzanilla is a quiet little fishing village about 3 hours south of Puerta Vallarta on the west coast of Mexico. There are about 1,200 people in the village built along a 5 km firm, sand beach  in Tenacatita Bay. The beaches on Tenacatita Bay are safe to swim  There are some small coral pocket beaches close to the village with good snorkeling in clean, clear water. There are no large hotels or developments and some lovely walking in the area. There is a lovely laid back tranquility for a yoga holiday or retreat.


The holiday begins with your flight to Manzanillo, a city one hour south of La Manzanilla. We will pick you up at the airport and within an hour have you at your accommodations in La Manzanilla. First you can swim at the beach and then the group will meet over dinner at local restaurants with delicious seafood, local, Asian and vegetarian dishes. The rooms are spacious but simple. There is a palapa that is lovely for sunrises and sunsets. The location is close to the main zocalo (town centre) and the beach. There is a fairly large communal kitchen for our use. Most rooms are doubles but there are also singles.Some of our yoga practice can be done in the morning on the palapa or on the beach.  More details
