Feast on healthy and organic farm-to-table buffet meals, get a massage, snorkel, take a jungle hike, tour the farm, detoxify in an Aztec Sweat Lodge, enjoy pampering spa treatments, swim in the pools, or take a dip in the ocean waters.  


UPDATED for COVID: Mar De Jade has impeccable cleaning protocols and distancing guidelines. All meals are served outdoors, with all yoga classes in Open-Air studios. Aside from your roommate(s), there is no need for indoor mixing with any other folks, and the property is plenty large enough that it never feels crowded. Please read their updated protocols HERE. If still required at the time of travel, we will have all guests COVID tested on site before returning to the US.

I had a wonderful experience! I didn't know any of the participants and enjoyed being aware of my thoughts, insecurities, and letting myself get comfortable with the new experience. The classes were balanced beautifully; Lael and Rachel did a fantastic job and taking us through a very complete practice, allowing us time to rest, explore, socialize and practice. I cannot wait to join them again!

I love this retreat so much! This was the third time I joined Rachel, Lael, and Left Coast Power yogis on this unique and revitalizing adventure. Rachel has the formula nailed down and keep improving on it every time. From transportation, connecting us during travel and while in community on the retreat, planning and recruiting us for fun adventures (and reminding us that we can do as little or as much as we want 😉) are just a few points that I appreciate. Mar de Jade and its employees are amazing. They were pulling triple duty this time as there were two other groups on retreats at the same time we were there. Even with the abundance of other folks, we were still treated with kindness, consideration, and assistance in whatever form we needed. The food is amazing, the optional excursions are always a fun way to break up the trip, and the yoga 2X a day by Rachel and Lael is something you can't really put a price tag on. This is one of the most affordable and BOUNTIFUL trips I've ever experienced, and it's why I'm a repeat participator - who's coming with me next year?!

Everything was perfect and would definitely recommend this trip to everyone. The yoga was lead by Rachel and Lael and they are both beyond amazing. Mar de Jade was beautiful, the food was delicious (they can also accommodate any food restrictions you may have), they had optional activities every day, the massages were great and everyone who works there is so friendly and accommodating.
