Optional Excursions (additional fee applies):

The Mexican Riviera is flush with these beautiful underground pools and a trip here isn’t complete without a dip in these refreshing waters. There are multiple cenotes to visit that are much less crowded than those in the Tulum area and only about 30min away by car. Find tranquility below ground or liven you experience with a cenote/zip line combination. Both options are available and booking at least a day in advance is recommended.

Snorkeling & Snuba
The biodiversity on the protect reef in the Mexican Riviera is stunning. Take off for an afternoon when the sun lights up the corals, tropical fish and sponges and search for turtles or reef sharks. Snorkelers can float above it all while snuba divers (no certification needed) can swim down into the tropical traffic. Either option will highlight why this area is protected and turned into a National Marine Park. Yogis can walk to the beach and take a 5min stroll to reach the operator. This natural oasis is literally steps from our retreat center.

If you’re a diver there’s twice the opportunity here, you can dive in the coral reefs or, for something a little different, take a cavern or cenote dive. Seasonally the more adventurous (crazy?) yogis can also try a bull shark dive…eek! Tons of diving options await the intrepid.

Akumal Sea Turtle Snorkel
The warm Caribbean waters off of the Mexican Riviera boast sea turtle populations year-round. You can outfit with a dive shop to snorkel with these lovelies or head out with your own gear and see if you get lucky.

Coba Ruins
The Mayan ruins at Coba is one of the few sites in the Yucatan that is still relatively unrestored. Many of these ancient buildings are the same as when they were rediscovered in 1890. The beautiful location is less hectic and touristy than other Mayan sites and is certainly worth the day trip.

Casa Om Spa
Whether you’re looking for an amazing massage or energy work, we have the best body workers in Puerto Morelos. Please be prepared to book early to secure a spot. Once the word gets out from the first few massages, they’ll book up quickly!

Playa del Carmen
Take a shopping trip, have a great meal, or just enjoy people watching on a trip to Playa del Carmen. This is a fun tourist spot where you can shop for anything from cheap souvenirs to boutique items.

Payment & Refunds Policy: Enrolling in a retreat is a commitment for many reasons. Thrive Hot Yoga has a non-refundable commitment to Casa Om, and therefore we have a non-refundable payment policy for our retreat clients. If the retreat is cancelled for reasons beyond our control, (i.e. airlines shutdown, state economy or country economy shutdown, health pandemic, or similar) our policy is that your payment will carry over to a re-scheduled retreat (no refunds) of your choice in the next 5 years. If this situation occurs, we will make every effort to reschedule the retreat as soon reasonably possible. Your enrollment in our retreat means you understand and agree to this policy and commitment.
