Yoga Retreat in the heart of Oaxaca’s Pacific Ocean


Zazil derives from the Mayan word for ‘light’, embodying the essence of illumination and vitality. Situated along the Pacific coast of Oaxaca, Zazil Retreat stands as a distinctive sanctuary nestled beneath the arc of sunlight that gracefully stretches across San Agustinillo Bay from dawn till dusk.

Offering an unparalleled panoramic vista of the sea, unveiling a mesmerizing spectacle unmatched in the Mazunte/San Agustinillo region. The retreat’s local architecture reflects simplicity and a love for detail, creating an atmosphere of rustic elegance and authenticity. Get ready for some cold refreshing showers, adding to the invigorating experience of your stay.

Wellness Options

Beyond being a captivating hotel destination, Zazil serves as an idyllic haven for yoga retreats in Mexico. The expansive 170 m² Yoga studio boasts full amenities for up to 16 individuals, providing a sanctuary for meditation and yoga practice surrounded by nature’s grandeur and overlooking the majestic Pacific Ocean.

Indulge in massages on demand,  an inviting pool, or traverse the pristine beaches for serene strolls, allowing the rhythms of nature to soothe the soul and foster a profound connection with the self.


Savor the essence of homemade cuisine crafted from locally sourced, organic ingredients. The  culinary offerings cater to the discerning palate of retreat participants, with vegetarian options readily available upon request. 

Alternatively, relish in the daily bounty of fresh catches procured from local fishermen. All in a family style serving. Christa and her husband created a warm welcome, ensuring a delectable dining experience that harmonizes with the coastal charm of the region.


Zazil Retreat is a hidden gem tucked away from the beaten path, ensuring an exclusive and tranquil experience away from the hustle and bustle of mass tourism. Accessing this secluded sanctuary is part of its allure, as it remains shielded from the crowds that flock to more accessible destinations. Guests typically fly into the airports of Huatulco or Puerto Escondido, where the hotel can arrange a seamless one-hour taxi shuttle to the coast.

Nestled amidst the lush jungle mountains, the retreat center offers a haven of serenity where you can reconnect with nature and yourself. Stay in shape with invigorating walks up from the beach to the retreat center, each step immersing you deeper into the tranquil embrace of the surrounding jungle. Alternatively, you may choose not to leave the sanctuary at all, as its serene ambiance and natural beauty provide a comfortable and nurturing environment for relaxation and introspection, perfectly embedded in the arms of mother nature.
