The Mayan Riviera - a tropical paradise

These vacations are for couples or small groups of up to twelve people who wish to have a more personal yoga vacation experience in an unsurpassed tropical setting.

Playa del Carmen is situated in the center of the Mayan Riviera, thirty miles south of Cancun, on the gorgeous white-sand beaches of the Caribbean Sea.

The accommodations for these Yoga By The Sea Vacations are a three-minute walk to private beaches and only a ten-minute walk past authentic Mayan ruins into the town itself.

As one of the fastest-growing areas of Latin America, Playa del Carmen has a decidedly international flavor, offering a wide range of dining experiences from Mayan to Italian to a variety of fresh seafood and lobster restaurants. Vegetarian cuisine is readily available and literally all restaurants wash their produce in purified water.

Salsa dancing, flamenco shows, and Peruvian music vie for your attention alongside traditional mariachi musicians who will serenade you while you dine.

If you are a sports enthusiast, you can golf, scuba dive, snorkel, ocean kayak, swim, sky dive, and play tennis. Or for a great workout, there are miles of pristine beaches to walk on and a fitness studio nearby.

If you are an archeological hound, the Mayan ruins at Tulum, Chichen Itza and Coba are yours for investigating. The historical city of Merida is a delightful overnight jaunt. And Xcaret, the nearby ecological park, presents a wonderful evening light show with authentic folk dancing and a reenactment of an ancient Maya ball court game.

However, if you want to savor your down time, relax deeply, and do nothing but contemplate the sky from your vantage point under a palm tree, then you can do that easily as well. Then refresh yourself with an in-room facial or massage.
