  • Thank you so much for one of the most beautiful and restorative trips of my life. How strange to come back to society after a week of breathing in fresh air and stillness! I was so impressed with all the attention to detail, the outstanding service from every staff member (especially Ricardo!) and the indescribably tasty meals. Please write a cookbook! I’d buy it in a heartbeat. I’m planning to come back in May 2013 for Nikki’s next retreat.

    Does Tomas have a direct e-mail address that I could send him a question about the massage? Both massages were great, I was just wondering about a particular technique he used.

    Thanks again for everything. I will be back SOON!

  • It’s true, Haramara is magical. There is something about that mountain that makes you feel completely relaxed and extremely well taken care of. The staff are exceptional and the food is incredible.

    My entire Yoga retreat had the same experience. We all felt a shift in our beings, a feeling of being totally content and at ease in our skin.

    I don’t know what it is about that place brings out the best in you and makes you feel so happy, all the time.

    The staff? The ocean? The Spa services? The Yoga decks over looking the ocean and mountains? The food? The community? All of it is incredible.

    I can’t wait to return year after year and continue to bring new and returning students so we can experience the beauty again and again.

    Thank you so much to Gail, Cyndy, Ricardo and Anna.
    You all made it so easy and extremely pleasant.

  • Just wanted to let you know what an amazing time we had in Haramara.

    I think I have been there with students 12 or 13 times….
    and it just keeps getting better…

    this time we had a beautiful Thai-atsu class with Jim Gallas
    the students loved it….i loved it…
    Jim is a very skillful teacher .
    It worked out so nicely to have him teach in the middle of the retreat week..
    When I return to Haramara I would love to offer this workshop with Jim again.

    More later

  • Hello Cyndy,

    I have to tell you something even more amazing which I am still processing… For me, it is a miracle.

    I have been ill for some time. I was diagnosed with a serious and complex health condition last year for which I was strongly advised to stop working in order to focus on my health. I have been working with some of the top doctors in this arena, consultations, labs, and powerful healers from various integrative modalities but I kept getting sicker and sicker. It has been hellish, and being in a very fragile state, I was also bedridden a lot of the day. My entire life and way of being was over. It was like the person I had been had died. By body was having none of it.

    I was supposed to spend a month in India doing a panchakarma treatment to see if that would be helpful, but was unable to travel due to my weakened condition. The message I kept receiving was to go back to the land, live close to the land and swim in the mother ocean, and this is where Haramara came in. For some reason, even though many of my friends teach retreats there I had not been. I felt called in a deep way to go….

    So…. what I want to share with you is this. Since the very moment and day I arrived I was almost completely asymptomatic – the entire time I was at Haramara. Outside of a bit of my dizziness due to my low blood pressure condition completely, I was asymptomatic. I did not leave the property except once – to go surfing! which I have not been able to do in years. I have not felt this way/like my Self as a whole, vital being, alive and well, in so many years it was ‘shocking’. This is where I feel so much awe and reverence for Haramara. The “magic” is so powerful, yet deep and feminine – strong but not forceful. I am familiar with ley lines or vortexes as I grew up on a farm and lived close to the land as well as having lived in many countries since then and in various sacred places, but this was extraordinary. Coming back I still can feel the energy and connection – though my symptoms have returned, they are not as strong as they were. What I received from that place was priceless. What I continue to receive and learn is unfolding in so many ways. Thank you Cyndy. I really felt like sharing this with you. I shared this briefly with Sajeela before I left just to really let her know how much her vision/love has touched me.

    So… with that… I thank you.

    Warmly,

  • We are so looking forward to our first visit to Haramara Retreat in 2012. We first read about your retreat center in Spirituality and Health Magazine, and we were intrigued to discover that the most spiritual spa of 2011 is located in one of our favorite places on Earth, Sayulita Mexico, where we celebrated our engagement and honeymoon! We feel so honored and blessed to win this amazing romantic getaway, which could not have occurred without the love and support of our family and friends who voted for us! To win this trip on New Years Eve was extra special, as this marked the fourth anniversary of our first date. Dreams really do come true! Thank you Haramara for the opportunity to experience the space you have created to preserve and promote healing, health, and harmony in our world. With deepest gratitude,

  • I can’t thank you enough for providing such a stunning location for guests of our VegNews Vegan Yoga Retreat to Mexico. Everything about the week was perfect, from the sumptuous cuisine and cooking classes to the friendly staff and breathtaking views. Our group can’t stop talking about their experience at Haramara.

  • I’m sending a message to thank you for all of your help leading up to the retreat at Haramara – it was truly one of the singular most enchanting experiences of my life. All who participated had similar experiences and stories to tell. Thank you for your patience and cooperation leading up to our week.

  • Hello!

    I’d like to take a moment and acknowledge those involved in arranging my visit to Haramara. My retreat was wonderful. Thank you for accommodating me, and thank you for your patience in corresponding ‘over the 10+ emails I sent back-n-forth’…I truly appreciated that; and for making my experience unforgettable!

    I loved the location, the staff was friendly, the ambiance, and food was excellent. Ana, Sakura (forgive the misspell) and the other woman that worked the early-day shift, were very pleasant. I felt at home, I was at peace, I learned something new, and I’m hoping to return next year around the same time.

    I took a lot of pictures, but I couldn’t wait to share it so I posted a photo clip to my facebook music page. If you’re interested feel free to review it. photo clip URL: http://tinyurl.com/2azeom6

    Again, Thank you!

  • We had the most extraordinary retreat! More transformational on all layers than I could have ever imagined.
    What a mystical, prana and loved filled oasis Haramara is!

  • Coming to Haramara is like coming home. My body returns to the earth, my mind mesmerized by the rhythms of the ocean and my spirit flies in this magical place. Yoga is a way of life and Haramara Retreat is where we can re-educate ourselves to live in balance.

  • I have visited Haramara Retreat twice with Marianne Wells Yoga School Retreat. This place is paradice! We flew into Puerto Vallarta, it was an easy 45 minute ride to Haramara. My first stay was in a private bungalow with my huband – very romantic – we had a front porch with table and chairs with an unbelievable view above the pacific ocean. The private shower was outside and also overlooked the ocean – very cool! The bungalow was immacuate and the bed was very comfortable. On my second trip I stayed in the dorm. This is bungalow that sleeps six very comfortably. There is a large bathroom on each end. Our daily yoga practices were held in a meditation space with evening sunset views over the Pacific. Marianne did an amazing job of coordinating and organizing a group of people from all over the world. She was able to meet each of our individual needs. Marianne has more knowledge, passion and dedication to her practice than anyone I have ever met. We learned so much on a physical, mental and spiritual level. Practicing yoga in such a beautiful place with Marianne Wells was truely a gift of a lifetime. Our group had local activities including canopy tour, horseback riding, surf lessons, and a visit to a secluded beach that is one of the most beautiful in the area. Almost every day, we walked into the town of Sayulita. It was a fun 20 minute hike along the beach and we felt very safe. I would highly recommend taking the time to visit this cute little town. Taxi’s are available for those that don’t want to walk. Or, just below Haramara Retreat is a secluded and beautuful beach where you can sit and relax. If you are there at the right time, you may see a whale in the distance. Although the beach is somewhat rocky, we still had fun surfing in the waves. The food was very healthy and good. We often had fresh seafood and each day we were treated in the afternoon to a tropical snack. The staff was extremely friendly, and prompt. This is a very safe destination as many Americans live there in the winter and have businesses in the area. This is one of the most amazing places in all of Mexico.

  • I have been lucky enough to go to Haramara for 2 yoga trips. It is quick 35-40 min drive from from the airport. Staff met us at the driveway of Haramara to give us the rundown of the resort and to take us to our bungalows. Each one was better than the next, Private, georgeous views, comfortable beds, spacious, wonderful bathrooms. clean clean clean! The yoga meditation hall is one of the best spots I have ever been…360 degree view of water and jungle. The room is open on all sides. Great spot for watching the sunset.

    Food was great. Healthy and always delicious. Great variety. Make sure you have tropical snack at least one afternoon.

    Staff can arrange local activites you want to do. The town of Salyulita is very quaint and the beach is wonderful. The Haramara beach is rocky and seculded and not to be missed

    Staff is great, friendly, accomodating.

    I would highly reccomend the Marianne Wells yoga trip to Haramara, she has led multiple international trips (I also joined her in Costa Rica) and she understands how to work with her students as well as the resort to make sure that you have the ultimate yoga experience!

  • Loved the accommodations, open air living, yoga facilities were exceptional , dining area was magical. Close to town (20 minute walk, 5 minute cab), for more good food, surfing, fishing or night life. Staff very accommodating.

    Stayed February 2010, traveled as a couple.

  • I travelled to Haramara for a 10 day Yoga retreat. Everything is absolutley amazing, you feel disconected to the outside world and you really get in touch with nature. The location is breathtaking, the yoga open air platforms make your yoga practica go to a completly different spiritual level. The rooms are fantastically integrated with nature, the staff is super friendly, the food is healthy and delicious. I do not have one single complain about my stay. I´ve been meaning to go back ever since my last stay. LOVEEEEEEED it.
