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.

Last year January 2014 I stayed at Mar de Jade with Higher Brain Living Kosmic Consciousness Retreat. No words can truly describe this oasis ~ the moment I stepped onto the beach, the ramada, the beautifully appointed rooms - the generous heart and soul of Mar de Jade filled my being - I now close my eyes in the northern...

This was the most wonderful vacation I have ever experienced. The hotel was gorgeous, the setting sublime, food was the most tasty, healthiest food I have ever eaten, and the people were kind. It was an exceptional experience all round. What I found the most remarkable was the way that the resort is used as a way to help the... More

It's a high point of my year, a January retreat at Mar de Jade. The place just gets better each visit. Food is wonderful, rooms comfortable and beautiful and well cared for. The beach is smaller than it was thanks to a king tide and global warming, but it's still a sweet walk into town (Chacala is tiny and not... More

if you want an all-inclusive resort with the simplicity and ease that brings, find a retreat or go just for the spa experiences. We've been going as a group for 21 years and everything has always been wonderful, but each year improvements. Environmentally and food sensitive. They've upgraded the rooms. It's lost a bit of the "funkiness" that was part... More

This wonderful and beautiful hotel/wellness center/resort can be found about one to one and a half hour drive north of Puerto Vallarta. It is just about hidden in the jungle outside of the town of Las Varas. It is situated on a cove that is surrounded in lush tropical gardens. The hotel is a gem, the rooms are tastefully furnished,... More

We have visited Chacala whenever we are in the area, about 2 hrs north of PV. My family has lived in the area for over a decade and we have had the opportunity to do some exploring and this is a find. The beach is perfect for walking with it's smooth, golden, hard packed sand and the water is great... More

Me and my family use to travel often to Chacala, since it's a pretty nice and relaxing place, besides it's such a beautiful beach. It's the first time that we stay in Mar de Jade and I think it won't be the last one. The place it's settle in the middle of the jungle, but still near the town. The... More

I visited in April on a yoga retreat but it is of course open to all vacationers. It unfolds before you as you travel up the drive. Beautiful flowers and landscaping. The owner and her daughter full of charm - a fascinating story of how this space was created. Think of the movie Mamma Mia Mexican style. It has such... More
