Xinalani is known by those of us who have spent anytime there as “magic universe.” This extends to the foodie delights that are plated and served every day with such great care. This is elegant dining al fresco at it’s best. And all to the soundtrack of the ocean, with every seat ocean view.
The only more magical experience is on the last evening when the staff at Xinalani create a gourmet feast on the beach where our tastes delight in gorgeous flavors, with the fire of torches lighting our food and our feet in the sand.
Join our 7 night/8 day yoga retreat in paradise designed to help you reset and make time to reassess your intentions. The experience will be grounded, playful, and fortifying as we refine our intentions for the best year ever! Our journey will include two yoga classes each day led by Casey Petersen, as well as open air accommodations and vibrant local cuisine. There will be ample space for rest, reflection, adventure and community connection.
Xinalani Retreat Center is an eco-chic spa hotel, with 2 yoga studios, hidden on a pristine beach surrounded by a luxuriant jungle on the south shore of Banderas Bay, near Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
If you feel the need to refresh your spirit and recalibrate your life, then this yoga retreat is what you need.

In our on-going effort to help provide resources for how to Green Your Vacation today we are featuring Prana del Mar, located at the Southern most tip of the Baja peninsula. Here is a youtube clip of this incredible place.
You should know at Prana del Mar stewardship for the environment is a primary concern, and this is not just lip service, they really do tread as lightly as possible. Here are some of the ways that they are reducing the impact on the local environment and the planet:
-All of their electricity comes from solar panels installed throughout the property.
-The pool is solar heated.
-All waste water is treated on-site and reused to irrigate the gardens. They also have their own well.
-Skylights were incorporated in the design to increase natural lighting and so they can almost eliminate the need to use lights during the day.
-All appliance and light fixtures were selected with energy efficiency as a criteria.
-Organic sheets, bath towels and bath mats are used in all of the rooms.
-In order to reduce water use guests have the option to reuse linens and towels.
-Cloth hand towels are used rather than papers towels.
-The garden is completely organic. No pesticides or herbicides are used and compost is made on-site from food waste and organic materials and then used as fertilizer.
-Only green cleaning products are used….and I saw them so this is really the case.
-Organic personal care products -shampoo, conditioner, soaps and lotions -are available for guests, and they are supplied in dispensers to reduce single use plastic containers.
-Aerated shower heads are in all of the bathrooms, which create great water pressure but at low flow rates, and toilets are low-flow.
-Wherever possible they recycle and they use only rechargeable batteries.
-Purified drinking water is available for guests, and every guest receives a refillable bottle to eliminate single use plastic bottles.
-The floor of the yoga studio is strand bamboo.
-Even the servers that host their website are 100% powered by wind energy.
-If guests purchase carbon offsets for their plane flights Prana del Mar will credit you that amount toward any massage, spa service, surf lesson or any other excursion that you organize through the hotel….Now that is really encouraging everyone who visits to take responsibility in every way that they can, and they will pick up the tab.
