Reserve your space now and get ready to experience the true magic of a yoga retreat!
Mar de Jade is the perfect space to nurture your body, quiet your mind, inspire your soul, and open your heart! Nestled in a peaceful fishing village between tropical jungle and pristine sandy beaches, Mar de Jade began as a non-profit medical clinic and has slowly evolved as a wellness meca - hosting mediation and yoga retreats as well as volunteer and intern opportunities for medical professionals. Sitting on the shores of Playa Chacala, the town and surrounding areas have much to offer: from jungle hikes, surfing, boating and ancient petroglyphs, to the simple pleasure of playing on the soft sand and swimming in the year-round warm ocean waters.
A portion of proceeds from guests’ stays at Mar de Jade support its non-profit programs, operated by MDJ Community Projects, which currently include: El Jardín, a Montessori – Waldorf inspired K – 6 school in Chacala; La Aldea, a trade school for youth who have dropped out of secondary school because of economic hardship; and El Rancho, an Organic Farm that supplies many of the products for Mar de Jade’s delicious meals.
Meals at Mar de Jade are a favorite of our guests! Delicious and well balanced buffet-style meals are served three times daily in our open-air dining room overlooking Chacala bay.
Every dish is made daily from scratch using fresh ingredients from our Organic Farm. Our menu is inspired by traditional Mexican cuisine and international flavors, and features vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free dishes as well as fresh fish, seafood and, chicken. We do not serve red meat or pork.
Throughout the day visit the snack bar at any time to enjoy coffee, tea, fruit, bread, and our stellar homemade organic peanut butter and mango marmalade. You can even purchase a jar to take home with you!
Our kitchen is happy to accommodate your dietary restrictions and food allergies, if given advance notice. All of our raw foods are carefully disinfected and washed with purified water. Free purified water is available at stations throughout the grounds.
