Did You Get Travel Insurance Yet?

If 2020 taught us anything, it’s that you need to be prepared for anything! Travel insurance has always been high my list of things to get before I travel but now more than ever its at the top of my list.

I’m pretty sure we have all had travel plans messed up because of COVID and not all insurers covered this. So when looking for travel insurance it’s important to check it covers travel disruption due to COVID-19, Hey Mondo, Passport Nomads, Safety Wing, and Travel Insurance Master all provide cover for this.

Hey Mondo is great if you are looking for a great value flexible policy. They offer single trip cover, annual multi trip cover, and long term travel cover. You even have the option to start the cover when you are already on your trip, although you won’t be covered for the first 72 hours. For me my favourite feature is their app which offers you a 24/7 Dr chat and the ability to file a claim direct in the app.

Passport Nomads provides the most comprehensive cover for Digital Nomads. The game changer with them is that you have a red card and if you find yourself in need of medical care you just contact them and they will pre load your card with the funds to cover your treatment, meaning you won’t need to pay out of pocket and then put in a claim later.

Safety Wing is great value with monthly cover starting at $39. It’s super easy to use and it just renews each month. They have an excess of $250 and it’s simple to make a claim through their website. I currently use them as they offer me free cover for my son as part of my policy and I like that it renews on a monthly basis, so I don’t have to pay out a big lump sum up front.

I also use Travel Insurance Master for some short vacation type trips.

If you are doing shorter trips or an extended backpacking trip then Hey Mondo or Travel Insurance Master are the best option. If you are a digital nomad or planning travel of at least 6 months then go for Passport Nomads or SafetyWing.

My Top Rated Mexico Yoga Retreat

yoga retreat Mexico,yoga mexico,yoga in mexico,mexico yoga retreats,yoga retreats mexico,yoga retreats in mexico,mexico yoga retreat,yoga


Price from: $1695
Number of nights: 6
Yoga Style: Vinyasa
Location: San Pancho

This yoga and sound healing retreat in San Pancho Mexico gets my number one spot for 2023. It’s taking place from the 18th of March in one of my favorite little villages in Mexico, San Pancho (San Francisco). When most people search to do a yoga retreat in Mexico they instantly look to the Riviera Maya and places like Tulum. But in my personal experience there is nothing that beats the energy of the Pacific coast of Mexico for those seeking a healing and spiritual path.

On this retreat, you will be surrounded by jungle and have a much more ‘off the grid’ kind of experience than you can expect to get in Tulum. The retreat is suitable for complete beginners through to more advanced yogis. If you are looking to do some real healing work in 2023 then this is the retreat for you. It’s got ceremonies, sound healing, yoga, vocal work, and so much more.


  • 7.30 Light breakfast 
  • 9.30 – Vinyasa Yoga
  • 11.00 – Reflection/ Relaxation time  
  • 12.00 – Lunch
  • 16.00 – Meet your voice – Vocal Workshop
  • 19.00 – Dinner
  • 20.00 – Cacao Ceremony with Soundbath


  • Daily Vinyasa Classes

One Breath Of Yoga

yoga retreat Mexico,yoga mexico,yoga in mexico,mexico yoga retreats,yoga retreats mexico,yoga retreats in mexico,mexico yoga retreat,yoga

My number two spot goes to One Breath of Yoga in Puerto Morelos. If you don’t know where that is, it sits just between Cancun and Playa del Carmen and it’s a smaller more peaceful version of Playa. The ashram is located outside of the town in the jungle, and it’s stunning. I’ve not stayed there personally, but I have visited to do Plant Medicine and I know the yoga teachers who lead the retreats (they are wonderful).

In the Ashram, they practice Ashtanga and Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga. You will eat a vegan and raw food diet (all included), have access to weekly temazcals (Mayan sweat lodge), and as well as your daily yoga practice you can also choose to do a variety of Plant Medicines with a local shaman (who I also know personally and highly recommend). This is of course optional.

You can learn more about their 7 day yoga retreats here, or if you were thinking of doing your yoga teacher training in Mexico they also offer a YTT 200 in Ashtanga Vinyasa click to learn more here

Private Yoga Retreat In Mexico

My dear friend Maria offers personalized and private retreats on the beautiful Island of Cozumel through her Mexico yoga retreat company Quiet Transformation. She also offers some small (COVID-friendly) group retreats throughout the year. What I love about the retreats that Maria offers is that they can be completely catered to you and your needs. Want to combine your yoga retreat with ScubaDiving one of the largest reefs in the world, you got it! Or maybe you want to really pamper yourself and have more of a spa retreat with massages and facials included, Maria can organize that for you.

Maria uses her deep knowledge in yoga, meditation, and radical self-care to help you to jumpstart your personal transformation and hold your hand along the way. It’s also worth mentioning that Maria is also a specialist in working with chronic pain (especially migraines, back pain, and more), and many of her retreats actually focus on helping people to relieve these problems.

For more information about joining one of Maria’s upcoming retreats, or organizing a personal yoga retreat, complete the form below and Maria will be in touch with you very soon.

Tulum Mexico Yoga Retreats

There is no shortage of Tulum Mexico yoga retreats, seriously! Just take a wander around the beach road and you will see an advert for yoga classes and retreats every few meters! Tulum and yoga go hand in hand. But be warned, because Tulum is such a well-known name as a beach yoga retreat venue you have to be careful to not overpay. Accommodation here can vary greatly from a tent on the beach to luxury 5* resorts, so be sure to look carefully before booking anything.

Each of the Tulum yoga retreats I’ve picked has great reviews and are good value for money as most of them as flexible retreats, so you can arrive any day of the week and in between yoga Tulum classes you are free to explore the local area. You can read all my Tulum posts here for extra inspiration.

Beach Yoga Vacations Mexico

Do you want to spend your practicing yoga on the beach in Mexico? Then one of these beach yoga retreats is for you. Puerto Escondido is one of the top surf and yoga destinations in Mexico, forget Tulum, here you will find a much more authentic (and budget-friendly) experience, plus unlike the Riviera Maya, there is great surf in this area. Another top beach destination in Mexico is Puerto Vallarta, also on the pacific coast on Mexico, but here you will find life a lot less rustic and much more in line with places like Playa del Carmen and Cancun.

Both places have a lot to offer, but if you want a little more luxury then choose Puerto Vallarta.
