Join us at Present Moment Retreat in beautiful Troncones, Mexico for a week of yoga, meditation, surfing, horseback riding, and relaxing at one of the best beaches on the Pacific.
NextTribe members receive $100 off trip price. Join today.
While it’s still cold in the States, we’ll have a whole boutique hotel to ourselves in this small Mexican village, north of Zihautanejo and Ixtapa.
This women-only retreat in the idyllic beachfront setting has been so popular we're expanding how often we offer it. Since 2018, women have come from all over the world—some of them not knowing anyone else on the trip—and the bonding is quick and deep.
We’re a group of women who are still curious and game. We’re explorers who want to keep learning and challenging ourselves—and we like to have fun. Be ready for walks on the beach with new friends, boogie-boarding in the waves, dance parties, shopping, and a childlike sense of play.
Our home for the week is Present Moment Retreat, a luxury boutique hotel on the Pacific. The hotel offers top-notch service and accommodations and organic meals. Present Moment staff teach two yoga classes and one meditation session every day. Skilled massage therapists give various kinds of body treatments.
Present Moment has 11 rooms, so it’s an intimate hotel. But it has the amenities and level of service you’d expect at a larger resort.
This small community is 40 minutes north of the Zihautanejo airport (ZIH) and is a dream of a beach town. Troncones has long been known as a surfer destination because of the great waves, but recently others have discovered its low-key charms.
NextTribe founder Jeannie Ralston has adored Troncones for years and wrote about it for the New York Times.
Besides making new friends, practicing yoga, getting massages, and playing in the water or pool, here are some other activities guests love to do in and around Troncones: kayaking trips, snorkeling, hiking to a cave to see ancient petroglyphs, cacao ceremonies, tezmacal sessions, horseback riding on the beach, turtle release program, biking in town, surfing lessons, dancing.
Read just a couple of stories written by guests at past NextTribe beach retreats.

NextTribe founder Jeannie Ralston lived in Mexico for 4 years and travels there regularly. She has never had any trouble with crime or safety while in Troncones, which is a quiet beach village, where you’ll feel removed from any concerns about crime. Because it is so small and only one road into the town, locals can keep an eye on who is coming and going.
Troncones is the kind of place where people live in open-air buildings, leave doors unlocked, and bicycles parked on the street without fear of them being taken.
Fly into ZIH (Zihuatanejo) on your arrival date (always a Saturday). Major carriers that fly into ZIH: American Airlines, United, Delta, Aero Mexico and Alaskan.
Most flights arrive in the afternoon. No matter what time you arrive, you will be met by a certified and vetted driver who will bring you to the hotel.

NextTribe offers a safe travel environment that through the energy and alchemy of adventurous women turns into a real community in a short amount of time.
We are known for group travel for women over 45 who don't normally like group travel. We keep our groups small and know that our guests are curious explorers who can take care of themselves. We allow them space to make the trip their own. You will not be in lockstep on a tight schedule behind a guide. You can roam on your own if you want (with a good GPS and an understanding of how to meet up with the group later) or you can take full advantage of the guide's knowledge of the city.
We do expect our travelers to have a level of self-sufficiency, being able to carry their own bags if need be, and to be respectful of others in the group and open to new experiences and friendships.
