This training and retreat is being held at the stunning private villa Casa Azul Profundo perched on a rocky cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean just south of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. On this part of the coast you will find small fishing villages, dramatic cliffs that hug the coast and lots of opportunity for night-time star gazing. There is a 180 degree view of the ocean and the Banderas Bay from everywhere in the villa, including your private guest suite. This part of Mexico was made famous in the 1950’s by the John Huston movie “The Night of the Iguana” filmed on the Playa de Mismaloya, one of the best beaches in Puerto Vallarta and just a short 5-10 minute walk from our villa.
We have a private chef who will provide us with meals and snacks throughout the day using fresh and local ingredients, including local seafood such as jumbo shrimp, mahi mahi and yellow fin tuna (vegetarian option is also available) There is also additional staff for housekeeping and to assist with arranging tours, onsite activities, massage, etc. Between training sessions you can enjoy snorkeling, whale watching, swimming at the beach or pool, a tour of historic Puerto Vallarta or enjoy the magnificent sunsets. Normally held over three intensive days we are stretching the training to five days to allow for time to explore, enjoy the warm ocean breezes and relax poolside. This is a trip to remember on the pristine Pacific Coast of Mexico.
Please note that Casa Azul Profundo is a new, highly upgraded location as of January 24th, due to management changes at our previously scheduled location, El Cielito Cabanas.
