In everything, we look for the golden lining. Sayulita Gold is the way you discover the most intimate pieces of this small town, the way to uncover the secret life of the expats that have lived here long enough to know which river road to take you down to get to the secret beach, where to photograph the most Instagramatic finds, the space and place to exist in harmony with both nature and the community, the way to surf the main break without conflict.
MedTreks is partnering with Sayulita Gold for the workshops on self care in healthcare. Workshop topics include Tools to Joy and Paradise Begins in the Mind, led by Janalyn Rose.
Participants will have the opportunity to sign up for additional activities through Sayulita Gold including surfing & stand up paddle boarding lessons, Salsa Dancing & Ukulele lessons and personalized photography sessions.

A huge part of why we picked this region to host the MedTreks wellness retreat is due to the ease and reassurance that we feel to run this retreat safely and appropriately, following all current COVID safety measures. We chose Haramara Retreat as the yoga retreat venue because it is both a private and remote setting, and just a short walk from their private beach and the charming town of Sayulita.
The location couldn’t be better. The spa, the restaurant, pool lounge area and yoga shalas are open to the air and surrounding jungle with sweeping views of the ocean.
Haramara Retreat Center is also taking additional precautions to ensure that their guests are safe and comfortable. The technological landscape has also been changing for COVID. As the rapid testing and COVID-19 vaccine availability increases, we know that people are wanting to travel more than ever. We know that times could still change and we are prepared to monitor the local situation. If you have any concerns after registering, we are happy to chat personally with you about it as we feel this retreat is one of the more safe travel experiences that you could participate in at this time.
