We will make our yoga hOMe here in this magnificent natural setting, where exquisite beaches and surf, beautiful and well-appointed accommodations, and delicious organic cuisine all abound! We will practice yoga in fully-equipped studios with spectacular views and on the beach where we’ll definitely get our yogi toes in the sand! As you wish, you can indulge in delightful spa services and ample opportunities to enjoy a variety of off-site excursions and adventures, such as hike to a secluded beach with caves, a pre-Hispanic petroglyph trip, a Temazcal ceremony, a traditional Mexican market, and trips to nearby fishing villages and towns (Chacala, Sayulita and San Pancho). Do as much or as little as you like in your wonderful Mexican OM away from home!

Deposits are non refundable & non transferrable.


  • 120 days prior to the retreat, you will receive 50% refund MINUS DEPOSIT
  • 90 days prior to the retreat, you will receive 25% refund MINUS DEPOSIT
  • Inside 90 days there are no refunds
  • TRANSFER POLICY: If the retreat is sold out and has a waiting list, there are no transfers available, as others are in line to attend the retreat. If you must cancel and the retreat is NOT sold out, we will help facilitate a Transfer of Registration. In this case, your deposit is NON TRANSFERABLE; all other finances are worked out between you and your replacement. In order for someone to take your place in the retreat, s/he will need to complete a Transfer of Registration form and pay a $100 transfer fee to join the retreat.

Thank you for reading our policies and honoring the work that goes into manifesting a retreat experience like the one we have created for you at Mar de Jade!


There are no refunds or pro-rating for arriving late or leaving the retreat earlier than our reserved dates. We suggest arriving in Puerto Vallarta a day early to enjoy the city (and to insure you arrive to the retreat on time); and we also think adding a day or two in PV at the end of your retreat is a wonderful way to extend your trip and feel more spacious and less rushed leaving the retreat.

Check out our location on the map:

Mar de Jade is a Yoga, Wellness & Vacation Retreat Center nestled between the tropical jungle and the pristine sandy beach of Chacala, México. This is an intimate place offering groups and individuals a relaxing, supportive, and inspiring environment in a peaceful fishing village.

Mar de Jade was created in 1983 in the spirit of active community service, gratitude for the natural environment, and cultivation of human life. To that end, it has founded numerous community projects, including regeneration of the land via non-toxic farming methods on a 18-acre organic farm, and an after-school program for local children in Las Varas, a nearby farming village. Your stay directly supports Mar de Jade’s multiple community projects, a win-win for us as retreat guests and for the school children, organic farmers, and other projects MDJ supports!

Many retreat leaders return here year after year to revisit this beautiful place and participate in its missions. You can read more about founder Dr. Laura Del Valle here:
