Join us in Boca de Tomatlan, Jalisco, Mexico over Cinco de Mayo weekend, May 4-8 for rooftop yoga, self discovery, chef-prepared meals, hiking, waterfalls, great photo ops, and more!
Boca de Tomatlan is the kind of place that fills you with gratitude. A modest fishing village located 45 minutes outside of Puerto Vallarta, Boca de Tomatlan sits on the Pacific Ocean in the midst of a jungle. You can hike to secluded beaches and through the rainforest to waterfalls. Water taxi is a prime method of transportation. These types of locations – hidden, undeveloped gems, make my heart swell with gratitude.
Below is a view from the second floor of Casa de Piedra, one of the accommodations. Casa de Piedra was built by hand out of the river rocks from the river you see pictured. Casa de Piedra has a pool, while the neighboring La Posada Pacifica has a spectacular rooftop. We will have access to both. The rooftop will be the yoga spot.
Daniel Cacheaux, a chef (and yogi) that has been in kitchens from France to Morocco to Tasmania, will be preparing the menus as well as the food. Daniel used to live in this region of Mexico and is familiar with the local ingredients. He will be preparing an assortment of dishes based on everyone’s dietary requirements. You can find him on IG: dcacheaux. BTW, he has recently been hired by Facebook to develop fermentation recipes.
There are several reasons why Bhavin Misra, a certified yoga instructor, has a waitlist only class on Thursday evenings – he masterfully creates a world of possibility, peace, and community.
Bhavin will guide you through a daily practice full of spirit, breath, inspiration, and physical healing.
Below is a view of the rooftop where the classes will be held. Keep scrolling for a view from the rooftop. After yoga, we will spend some time in personal reflection and exploration.
AWARD-WINNING PHOTO OPS
Aaron Theisen, an award-winning photographer, will be joining us as well to capture all the fun. He will also make sure you have great photos of you to share with family and friends.
See below for examples of his work. Aaron is also a travel writer and has published two hiking guide books. Find him on IG: whiskeygingermedia
