Just outside our complex there are cafes, shops, local markets and the beach.  The neighborhood, called La Punta, is small, quiet, and full of friendly people.  Just a mile down the beach is Playa Zicatela where you can find restaurants, open markets, nightlife, and plenty of surf shops to buy Mexican trinkets, beach garb, and anything else you might need.  Puerto Escondido is a safe and welcoming town.  For information about weather in Puerto Escondido, click here.

“Wow. Sweet Retreats rocked my world!  I feel so much more aware of my body.  I’m not a circus professional, but I really appreciated Kerri’s approach to fitness and yoga. Her “circus fit” cardio and vinyasa-styled asana practice really brought me back to earth, away from the passive, achey body that doesn’t reflect who I am.  My family attended the Family Circus Yoga Retreat, and there was something for all of us: circus tumbling and climbing for the kids, circus fit cardio for my wife and vinyasa yoga and hammock time for me.  The proximity to beach fun, excellent food and cocktails at Casa Chango, fun shopping, and the safety and relaxing environment of the grounds left us feeling fit, relaxed, and well fed.  The staff made a truly a magical experience.  From our first “hola!” to our final “adios amigos!” Sweet Retreats was at once personal, authentic, fun, and restoring.  Great Job!” Andy Tannehill, Placerville, CA
