Warm Your Body. Nourish Your Soul.

A cultural experience in the quaint town of Puerto Morelos, to warm your body and nourish your soul after a long winter.

In Puerto Morelos tranquility reigns with open skies, long stretches of beach and a small town atmosphere. This is the place to come and relax, watch the sunrise on the beach, meet the locals, explore the natural wonders such as the coral reef 500 meters from shore, work on your tan, or simply soak up the serenity. Wedged between the bustling cities of Cancun and Playa del Carmen, it has maintained its peaceful atmosphere of a charming Mexican fishing village living up to its nickname “La Joya del Caribe” (Jewel of the Caribbean)

This fabulous week includes:

  • Snorkeling and Cenote Tour

  • Mayan Sweat Lodge

  • Cooking/Birding Tour

  • Jungle experience including a home cooked raw food meal

  • Delicious daily lunch & dinner

  • 5 star lodging

  • Closing celebration

This premier retreat is specifically designed for a small group of people who want to enjoy the Mexican culture and people, bask in the different aspects that the natural environment offers, who are health conscious, ready to nourish themselves, while having a ton of fun!.

Accommodations hosted by Layla Guest House:

These 4 studio apartments blend Caribbean indoor/outdoor living with a relaxed and active vacation lifestyle, just a stone's throw from the beach snorkel life. Tropical hardwoods and hand hewn stone embody the love and magic Layla was created with. Cafe Layla offers cool sea breezes and lovely sea views with your Healthy Asian-Fusion Lunch. Enjoy backgammon in the lounge area with your cappuccino, teas, smoothies, or fresh juice.

The retreat is open to 8 people, two people per apartment. There is the option for a third person in two of the apartments, where one person sleeps on the sofa couch and the others share the king bed. We have intentionally kept this retreat small, so everyone has time to enjoy the excursions and connect, with ample solo time too, to spend at the peaceful and sublime palm garden at Layla, out at the beach, or enjoying the town square.

Five meals will be enjoyed at Cafe Layla, and the others shared experiencing the different, local cuisines, to nourish everyone’s palate.
