I recently I went to Mar de Jade for my teacher’s retreat and then for my retreat. Beautiful! I went to sleep and woke up to the sounds of the ocean. Fresh food, very helpful staff, simple but very nice room. If you want to time away from a busy life, this is the place for you.

Mar de Jade has a great mission - to support the people of the local town of Chacala, population of about 300. They can arrange for a driver to provide r/t transport to/from the airport in Puerto Vallarta, which is a 90-minute drive to the retreat center. The main highways between PV and the retreat center are totally paved and... More

Can't imagine a more wonderful place to get away, relax and renew. I found Mar de Jade on-line when looking for a Yoga venue in Mexico for a vacation for myself and my 2 adult daughters. We had't been away together in 10 years and I wanted a place that would be allow us to do a little yoga and... More

I attended a women's leadership training at Mar de Jade. The daily meditation and yoga sessions, the amazing healthy yummy food, the rollicking waves, and the helpful staff contributed to the learning and joy of the experience.

For a retreat, a solo vacation or a couple get away this is the place to go on the Pacific coast of Mexico. Outside of busy Puerto Vallarta, Mar de Jade is a paradise in sight, sound and service. Originally built by Dr.Laura del Valle as a center to offer health services to an underserved community, now Mar de Jade... More

My husband and I were on a retreat at Mar de Jade. The energy of this Eastern influenced spiritual space is the backdrop for three 'clean' and delicious daily meals, pool, whirlpool, Zen mediation, yoga and a staff that obviously likes to be at their place of work. The hotel is situated close to the ocean so the lolling sound... More

The hotel is a spiritual center, and provides safe (fresh vegetable and fruits, etc) and healthy meals. We had a retreat of about 60 people. Every meal has a different juice (e.g. orange-mango, guava-celery, watermelon. The dessert was very well portioned-small-we don't need to eat a gigantic dessert. Our group of retreaters applauded the chef, and the entire kitchen staff.... More

This was our second year. We stayed in one of the new rooms overlooking the ocean. The food, accommodations, retreat and yoga rooms, location, atmosphere - everything was perfection! We'll be back next January for sure!

I went to Mar De Jade for a Higher Brain Living Retreat. This place is awesome! From the minute we got there I could feel the amazing energy and it felt like home. They can arrange really great transportation from Puerta Vallarta for a great rate for a group. The service is amazing and the staff the happiest I have... More

They have their own farm, earth-friendly construction, engulfed in the jungle on one side, the beach on the other! Great service, wonderfully fresh organic food, and a mission to support the local community.
