Why Sayulita?

We chose to host our 2021 wellness and yoga retreat in Sayulita because we are dedicated to providing a safe and relaxing retreat experience. We are thrilled to work with Haramara Retreat Center in Sayulita, Mexico as they offer an incredible seaside, tropical retreat venue. This private yoga resort is a perfect place for group gatherings during a time where social distancing practices must be continued. Located on the hill, just a short walk away from a private beach, Haramara Retreat is also just a short walk from downtown Sayulita where participants can enjoy shopping, surfing and several other activities. Sayulita offers the best of  both worlds during COVID. A fun, beautiful place that is safe and serene. We look forward to sharing it with you.

A note on COVID and travel to Mexico: 

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.
