Surf & Chill with Amigos- Sayulita retreat December 2016

Oh, this retreat was such a magic one!
Being in Mexico, in such a magical town as Sayulita is, was certainly inspiring and enriching. The crew of people coming with us this time was also amazing and even though all of us came from different parts of the world, the vibes were great and we conjoined all perfectly with the laid-back ambiance of Villas Sayulita and the town itself.

This is a recap of our time well-spent in the pacific coast of Mexico between early yoga, easy surf, mountain hikes, mezcales and enchiladas... We hope next time you can join us too!
