With its privileged geographical position on the map of Mexico, Yucatan is famous for many things. Wonderful places to restore mind, body and soul.

On the extensive Yucatan coast, very close to Telchac Puerto, is San Bruno, where there is a special place for a total self-renovation. The retreats last three, five or seven days of intensive Ayurvedic care and routines that include:

• Delicious and nutritious foods to cleanse the body and balance digestion
• Guided yoga and meditation
• Ayurvedic massage treatment
• Medicinal oils and herbs

Here, you are lucky enough not to be watching the clock. Leave your cell phone behind. All the senses are engaged in the rhythm of nature, in the transit of light, in the wind, in the waves of the sea, in the diversity of plants in the dune and in the local fauna. The goal is to pay attention to what we receive and what nurtures us.

Half an hour from the city of Merida is this paradise by the sea to rest, heal and experience all the sensations, smells and flavors that recall the zest for life.

Maripaz Ojeda gives the treatments and practices and coordinates the Ayurvedic nutrition area. She is certified by Purusha Ayurveda as a Panchakarma Technician with eight years’ experience offering this ancient healing practice to those who seek to reconnect with their body and well-being.
