Adventure Travel in Mexico at the San Blas Yoga Retreats
Las Islitas This beach is
one the the most beautiful spots in Mexico and is always a
favorite at the retreats. Relax at a ramada and enjoy the
view. The water is generally calm and clear but when the waves
break this is one of the premier surfing spots of the world, known for
the world's longest wave.
Jungle Boat Ride
On this adventure, we take
a boat through the mangrove swamps to La Tovara, a beautiful natural
crystal clear spring where you can swim with the crocodiles!
Stop at the crocodile farm to see how they breed them for repopulation. See many species of exotic tropical
birds including egrets and blue herons. Usually the guests see several
crocodiles in the wild, large turtles, iguanas and who knows what
Historic San Blas
San Blas is one of the oldest ports in Mexico. Visit the old Spanish fort and church. Go into town
for shopping at the colorful shops of the indigenous population. Pick up some colorful beadwork from
the Huichol Indians.
Sea Cruise We will rent lanchas to explore the
virgin coastline of Nayarit. You can go whale watching in season from
January through March. The
rest of the year you might see playful dolphins or giant sea
turtles. This area has 3 species of dolphins and is one of the best
parts of Mexico for observing dolphins. Perhaps you can swim with the dolphins.
This is an ecotourism adventure you won't forget.
