10 Things to Ask Before You Book a Retreat to Tulum.

Why Head to Tulum, Mexico for a Yoga Retreat?

In 2016, suffering badly from the winter-time blues, I was scrolling Pinterest for “best vegan-friendly beach vacations,” and one city kept showing up again and again — Tulum, Mexico.

The pictures of Bohemian-looking beach swings, the seafoam-colored sea, and Mayan ruins were enough to have me longing to be transported to Tulum, like now!

One article really sold it to me officially when they described that, although Tulum and its jungles can get quite hot, the breeze from the ocean-side is continuous and perfectly delicate, making Tulum’s beaches comfortable basically year round (just watch out for Hurricane season).

Needless to say, I booked a vacation for my partner Joe and me, and that spring we fell head over heels for Tulum.

In fact, we loved it so much that I vowed to come back with my yoga students — and the following year we ended up doing just that. For the next two years, I led successful retreats with help from two incredible beach-side facilities. I would have continued hosting more retreats if it weren’t for starting a family (neither option [leaving my little guy behind or bringing him along] sounded appealing — Maybe when he’s older).

You have to put your feet in the sand there to feel it, but the community and the land is just saturated with an undeniable sense of healing, nature, and spiritual connection.

Maybe it’s the jungle, or the sea, the cultural history, the vibrant, locally sourced foods, or the many healers who flock to this special place…. Maybe it’s the many healing ceremonies and services on offer — like clay treatments, Temazcal, sound healing, and more. Or, more likely it’s all of the above.

No matter how you slice it, Tulum is a special place if you’re craving a reset. You’ll catch the vibe when you settle in, and you’re likely to be unburdened of your stresses, whether or not you knew you were carrying them. 

As one concierge said to me on day three, “You look much more relaxed now.” I glimpsed my wild, sandy hair and sun-touched skin in the reflection of a window nearby and knew she was totally right.

Without further ado, here are some of the best yoga retreats on offer in Tulum (updated August 2023).

  1. Off topic but since it’s mentioned as one of the retreat’s offerings – have you ever tried ayahausca? It’s something I’ve always been interested in trying and I find myself browsing through retreats often.

    1. I’ve not personally tried it but I’m not against the idea. Timing just isn’t right for me. I have a friend, successful 60-smthng woman lawyer with children, who does it periodically and has brought her husband along too. She always comes back feeling obvious joy and loving acceptance that lasts for months. … I think they say the plant calls you, so if you’re feeling the call… 🤔
