Tulum Mexico Yoga Retreats

There is no shortage of Tulum 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 have 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.

7 Days Harmonize Body, Mind, and Soul Yoga Retreat in Tulum, México

Price from: $869
Number of nights: 6
Yoga Style: Hatha, Kundalini, Vinyasa
Location: Tulum

Tulum yoga retreat

If you are looking for a longer Tulum yoga retreat and are up for a little Glamping in Mexico then this is the retreat for you. Don’t bee fooled by the tents though, this is more of a luxury yoga retreat than a super basic camping experience. You will get 6 nights in one of their seven luxury glamping tents or in one of their private suites.

As well as 2 daily yoga Mexico sessions you will get a 1-hour full-body massage, 12 meals, and use of their bikes. The hotel is situated in Tulum town so it’s a taxi or bike ride to the beach, but it does have a pool, a farm, a restaurant, a fire pit, Wi-Fi throughout, and of course, a yoga shala.

The shala itself is the biggest selling point for me as you will be practicing your daily yoga classes in the middle of the permaculture farm surrounded by their organic gardens. Each week the yoga schedule changes slightly but styles of yoga include Hatha, Vinyasa, and Flow and are held every day at 8:00 a.m. and at 7:00 p.m.

Included in this Tulum yoga retreat:

  • Yoga sessions twice daily (morning and afternoon) except on your arrival and departure date, when you will only take one class, and on Sundays when there is only a morning class
  • 1 x 60 minute massage in the comfort of your room or in the massage room by the Shala
  • A bicycle during your stay for you to stroll down Tulum in your free time
  • 6 nights’ accommodation
  • 12 meals

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.

The Best Yoga Retreats Mexico 2020

Book your trip now

Are you ready to book your trip?  To help you get the best deals and service here are the companies that I personally use to book all of my travel online. I always shop around before booking anything, but these are my tried and tested starting places.

  • Skyscanner – I’m a bit fan of Skyscanner, it is who I use to book all of my flights. I often will check other like Google Flights or Momodo, but I always go here first and it is who I book 99% of my flights with. 
  • Booking.com – I LOVE booking.com especially when I can book and cancel free up until a certain point, mostly because my plans are forever changing. It’s easy to use and has one of the widest selections. 
  • Airbnb – I’m not a huge user of Airbnb, but sometimes I do like to use it, and I ALWAYS check it before I book anything else. You can get some really cool places to stay here, and it is especially good in places like Cuba. If you don’t have an account and you click on this link then you will get $36 off your first booking.
  • Hostelworld – If you are looking for hostels then this is a great place to check first. They often have additional places that you won’t find on Bookin.com.
  • Agoda – Although I don’t use it as much as booking.com, Agonda is especially good if you are traveling in Asia as they really do dominate there. 
  • Workpackers – If you want to travel on the cheap and save money on accommodation then you need Workpackers in your life. You can read more about it here. If you click this link to sign up and use the code CLAIRESITCHYFEET then you can get a 40% discount on your membership! 
  • 12Go – If you are traveling in Asia and want to pre-book your transportation then 12Go is a fantastic site to do so. They have buses, trains, and air travel.
  • RentalCars – Looking to rent a. car while you are away? I always book through Rental Cars as they do a search of all of the big sites and find the best deals. 
  • Welcome Pickups – Very occasionally getting from the airport to my accommodation is a total pain in the butt, or I’m traveling in a group and it makes sense to arrange a pickup. When I do I use Welcome pickups.
  • World Nomads – If you are looking for flexible travel insurance then it’s World Nomads all the way. I wrote all about insurance here if you want a more thorough review. 
  • SafetyWing – AsI’m a Digital Nomad and not moving around quite so much anymore I personally use SafetyWing now for my health insurance. I wrote a full review here
  • Viatour – Sometimes it can be a little expensive, but I like Viatour for somethings, especially if you can get a discount code! It’s also great for inspiration. 
  • Klook – If you are traveling in Asia, then Klook is great! You can book all kinds of tours, activities, and train tickets, plus they even have sim cards and WiFi.
