Prana del Mar

Baja, Mexico

https://pranadelmar.com/index.html

 

Prana del Mar, is a beautiful oceanfront yoga retreat & wellness center located at the southern tip of Baja, Mexico. Renew and refresh with a deep, healing massage, a restorative aromatherapy treatment, a soak in the hot tub, or a nap in a hammock. Watch the sun sink into the Pacific as you dine on fresh, delicious – often organic – Mexican and international cuisine, sip the best margaritas of your life, laugh with friends new and old, and then admire the star-filled sky as you wander the path back to your suite to sink into a plush pillow-top bed, lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves breaking on the beach.
