Sweet Retreats Mexico

Sweet Retreats are held at the Casa Chango (Monkey House) community complex a short walk from the beach.  In addition to clean and safe accommodations, there is a swimming pool, an ocean view palapa practice space, the Casa Chango Gym for aerial & acrobatics training, lots of grass and hammocks for relaxing between classes, and our Casa Chango Kitchen and hang out space.  It is awesome!

All rooms are very simple and clean and have a bathroom, fans, and veranda.   There is no air conditioning.  This is not a luxury hotel, but the rooms are clean, and the outdoor areas are gorgeous with sunset views.  We spend most of our time outdoors and in the community spaces training, eating, swimming, and hanging out.  

Just outside our living/training complex there are cafes, shops, and local markets to explore.  The neighborhood, called La Punta, is small, quiet, and full of friendly people.  Surf lessons are available in La Punta.  Just a mile down the beach is Playa Zicatela where you can find bars, restaurants, discos, 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.

About the Rooms

Cabanas and Budget Rooms

We have 3 cabanas, all with private bathroom, veranda, and fans.  There is one single occupancy cabana with a king sized bed and plenty of extra space.  Our double occupancy cabanas (2 matrimonial sized beds) are considered budget rooms because they are older and darker buildings with less ventilation.  We provide fans for your comfort.
