About this trip

In one unforgettable week...enjoy daily Yoga, music, amazing food and drink, and the Dia De Los Muertos Festival in beautiful Mexico. Both of our locations are accessible by flying into the Puerto Vallarta airport.


This family-friendly retreat with Rachel Rajput and Lael Humphries includes a 5-night stay at a very special seaside resort in Chacala know as The Jade Sea, or Mar De Jade. We are also including 2 nights in the artist / surf town of Sayulita to celebrate Mexico’s Cultural Festival of Dia de Los Muertos.  This trip will go from Sunday - Sunday.


We’ll start our journey at Mar De Jade, a yoga and meditation retreat center on the Pacific coast village of Chacala, Mexico. Here we’ll spend 5 days and nights deepening our yoga practice and taking a digital detox. Unwind in paradise with twice-daily offerings of yoga...feast on healthy and organic farm to table buffet meals, take a jungle hike, detoxify in an Aztec Sweat Lodge ceremony, enjoy pampering spa treatments, and much more. Swim in one of the several inviting pools, or take a dip in the ocean waters...enjoy a long walk on the beach into town...simply relax in a hammock overlooking the sea. We will also have an opportunity to visit local children at the nonprofit school run by Mar De Jade and tour their organic farm.

Then, we will travel to exotic Sayulita for the two-day Dia De Los Muertos Festival of the Dead. See altars created by local artisans, taste local mezcal, listen to live music, and maybe take a surf lesson along its world-famous beach. 


This is an unforgettable week and we hope you can join us!

Amazing! I brought my brother and my two nieces, 7 and 9 and we all had a great time. Food was delicious and healthy and loved the yoga. Rachel has created a wonderful community that I love being a part off. Thank you for this lovely experience!

This was my second trip to Camp Double Bear with Rachel and it was another amazing experience: deeply restorative, yet refreshingly social. Classes with Rachel, Adam, and Lael - and a massage with Kellyn - provided just what I needed when not consuming delicious food or spending time in the hot tub with friends old and new (I made my initial friends in Oakland from 2018's trip). I'll continue to go back during my time in the Bay and I hope to meet you there on a future retreat!
This was one of the best things I've ever done! Loved the people we met, the food we ate, the yoga we did!! It was all incredible and I would do it again in a heart beat. Thank you for everything Rachel! You are a gem of a human being (who creates more gem-like human beings hehe).
This yoga retreat was a wonderful experience, guided by two skilled and inspiring yoga instructors. The accommodation at Mar de Jade was perfect, serene and beautiful. The entire retreat was well organized with just the right balance of structure and free time. Can't wait until the next one. Thank you Rachel and Jenna. Highlight of 2018.
This trip was so memorable and will always have a special place in my heart. Teaching yoga in such a beautiful place with such beautiful souls was a very unique opportunity for me. The food was organic and delicious, the massage therapist on site literally healed my psoas, and the yoga rooms overlooked the Pacific Ocean and we moved to the sound of the waves. This trip was fun filled, yoga filled, and most of all .... heart filled! Can’t wait for the next one:)
