Here are a few reasons why you might want to choose one of our family retreats:

  • Experience a relaxing and energizing vacation where everyone’s needs are met while gaining  healthy habits.  Go home feeling better than when you came.
  • Eat better than you do at home!  Don’t waste your time searching for good food and waiting for hours at a restaurant.  We serve the freshest and best quality farm to table meals to keep you feeling great.   
  • Take the stress out of your vacation, unplug, and let us be your guides.  We will take care of the logistics so you can spend more time enjoying yourselves.
  • Feel great in your body!  We provide one Circus Fit movement or Yoga class each day for the parents while the kids are busy with activities.   Don’t worry. We make it fun. Spend the rest of the days exploring the beach, relaxing in a hammock, swimming in the pool, surfing, and spending quality time together.
  • Your children have a safe place to play.  Kids’ activities include circus skills (juggling, stilts, aerial silks, acrobatics, obstacle courses, hula hoops), crafts, baking cookies, swimming, games and movies in our home cinema.
  • We truly love having you here. It is our pleasure to host you and entertain your kids.

Delicious and Healthy Meals

Breakfast, lunch, and most dinners are included in our Family Retreats.  The food will be grounding, nourishing and amazing!  Our meal master, “Skillet,” presents healthy and delicious meals made with fresh, local ingredients.  You will be blown away by the food!  Meals include fresh fruits, vegetables, beans, rice, eggs, meat or fish, and healthy treats are available throughout the day.   We can accommodate most special dietary needs including vegetarians, vegans, food allergies, and picky kids!

We offer 2 date nights! We feed your kids dinner so you can go out and enjoy the local restaurants and culture.


Our Family Retreats are held at the Monkey House community complex a short walk from the beach.  Everything is right here. Accommodations are clean and safe. Each family gets their own private apartment. If you come with another family, the 2 families can share a larger house. We have a swimming pool, an ocean view open air play/ hang out area, the Monkey House Gym, lots of grass and hammocks for relaxing between classes, and our Monkey House Kitchen and community space. Send your kids over when they wake up in the morning! We will feed them breakfast and entertain them while you take your time getting up!!  

Just outside our complex there are cafes, shops, local markets and the beach.  The neighborhood, called La Punta, is small, safe, 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” 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 for my wife and vinyasa yoga and hammock time for me.  The proximity to beach, fun, excellent food and cocktails at Casa Chango, shopping, and the safe 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!”
