About this Retreat: On this Yelapa Yoga Retreat you can find yoga, meditation, and much more for every body, an affordable, wonderful opportunity to relax, renew, and rejuvenate. Yelapa is a delightful Mexican fishing village, located on a sleepy little bay just south of Puerto Vallarta. Since there are no roads to Yelapa (one of the things people love most about the town!), participants will take a 45 minute boat ride from Puerto Vallarta to the village. As there are no roads in Yelapa, there are no cars, less noise, less pollution and less stress. Temperatures in January: refreshing 60-65 at night, 75- 80 in the day. Note: This is the dry season, so normally lots of sun. The food is fresh and delicious, including local fish, chicken, enchiladas, tortillas, ceviche, beans, avocado, pies, fruit (papaya, banana, pineapple, melon, etc.). Fresh fruit beverages.

As you awaken and nurture your inner divinity, you will also expand your global family through service opportunities with several non-profit partners Global Family Travels supports in Ladakh, Rishikesh, and Dehradun, focusing on quality education, preserving culture and women’s empowerment.
