The Ideal Group Size for Your Private Mexican Yoga Retreat

May 21st, 2012

If you’re part of a yoga class or group considering a private yoga retreat to Mexico, you’ll have quite a bit of work to do planning for your tropical getaway. In addition to the regular things like airline tickets, passports, and packing to take care of, you have to make sure the group dynamic is just right. That’s because a yoga retreat is more than just a vacation…it’s a chance to bond with others who feel the same way you do about yoga and its benefits to overall health and wellness. In fact, having the right group alongside you for the journey is almost as important as where you
go.

April 26th, 2012

One of the many reasons why a Mexico beach vacation is such a great trip idea is to enjoy the shopping opportunities. Whether you’re interested in finding gorgeous, one-of-a-kind pieces for your home, or if the idea of taking advantage of low prices appeals to you, you can find everything from textiles and ceramics to personalized artwork for sale in Mexican shops.

Shopping in the Ixtapa-Zihautanejo Region

As is the case in any geographically diverse country, every region in Mexico offers its own unique take on handcrafted goods. Guerrero, the state in which Ixtapa, Zihuatanejo, and our own Troncones reside, is famed for its ceramic plates and dinner sets, wood sculptures, ceremonial masks, and hammocks-most of which are available through the large and open-air artisan markets.

People vacation to Mexico for a variety of reasons. Some want to enjoy the lively atmosphere and vibrant nightlife of the bigger cities, where the party never seems to stop.

March 14th, 2012

One of the benefits of Mexican yoga retreat like the one offered at Casa de la Sirena is that we have adopted a no-host format for our facilities. We offer the framework for a private yoga retreat, complete with beachside yoga studios (which can hold up to 18 guests), housing, use of our on-site kitchen facilities, and all the ambiance and charm of a tropical getaway. However, our involvement stops there.


Yoga in Paradise: Why Your Environment Matters

February 29th, 2012

Yoga is a deeply personal experience that can have a profound impact on the body, mind, and soul. That’s why the yoga environment is one of the most important considerations you should make when choosing a location for your next yoga retreat. The ideal setting is one in which you can find all the rest and relaxation you need—and where there is enough space to accommodate your entire group without feeling cramped or overwhelmed.

Whether you are planning a yoga retreat for reasons related to health, spirituality, or fun, we recommend the Mexican coast, where vacation villas add a touch of luxury and the ocean-side facilities take care of the rest.


Your Mexican Beach Vacation: The People and their Family-Centered Lifestyle

February 15th, 2012

When you book a Mexico vacation villa in Troncones for your next getaway, you get a lot more than a place to enjoy a luxury getaway. Because Troncones is a small village that has retained much of its charm and values, you also get a closer look at the culture and people of “real” Mexico. And with a focus on family, community, and making the most out of time spent with those you love, the Mexican culture is one that many people can never get enough of.


Troncones, Mexico: Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo’s Secret Paradise

February 1st, 2012

The Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo region is one of the more popular vacation destinations for those seeking a Mexico beach vacation. Although they are two distinct cities, Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo are often lumped together because of their proximity and their shared focus on tourism. They are located about 150 miles north of Acapulco, sharing the same stretch of the Costa Grande, but with fewer crowds and a more traditional atmosphere.

Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo is the third most popular tourist area in Mexico (after Cancun and Puerto Vallarta). It is known around the world as an ideal destination for history buffs and sports fisherman, as well as families who want to enjoy coastal Mexico without the traditionally young and unruly crowds associated with spring break destinations.
