Upcoming Retreat

Location: The Butterfly Landing of Hacienda del Secreto, Mayan Riviera, Mexico

About This Retreat

Join Hayat and Allison for the first annual PLAYtreat: a playful, peaceful yoga retreat in the heart of the Mayan Riviera at The Butterfly Landing of Hacienda del Secreto. For 5 days and 4 nights, we’ll practice, swim, play and explore the beauty of Hacienda del Secreto and the surrounding area. Together, we will enjoy beautiful days, filled with yoga, meditation, panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea, superb local, real food and a landing space that promotes rest and well-being.

The PLAYtreat is your opportunity to rest, unwind, and to land. Twice daily meditation and practice will leave plenty of time for spontaneity, rest, and exploration.

Everyday, there will be optional tours, such as exploring nearby cenotes, Mayan ruins or adventuring out into the sea for some snorkeling or scuba diving; the options are endless!

If more rest is what you are seeking, Hacienda del Secreto can too provide. The boutique resort lies on a the private beach of “Playa Secreto”, where only a few scattered homes dot across the landscape. Feel free to spend your time taking walks on the beach, swimming in the crystal blue water, dipping in the pool, sponging into a hammock or anything else you wish to do.

On grounds, Hacienda del Secreto’s private restaurant will serve up 3 delicious meals and anything extra you desire. Vegetarian and gluten free options will be available.

In addition, Mauricio, the Guest Services director can arrange any spa packages, tours or special assistance you need.

Plan to arrive on the morning/afternoon of Thursday, October 6th. Your retreat package will include 2 yoga classes per day, 2 meditation classes, 3 meals per day (buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner), and your accommodation. Plan your departure for the morning of Monday, October 10. Depart on the morning of Saturday, October 10th. Passports required, visas not needed for stays less than 30 days.
