Fodor's Review

Mind-blowing views and acres of trees are yours, as well as blissful breezes off the Pacific Ocean, at this oasis of tranquility just south of Sayulita. Originally a retreat for yoga groups only, Haramara—which means "Grandmother Sea" in the Huichol language—is now open to individual travelers. With its own private beach and several large pergolas for meditation, Haramara is a wonderful venue for a rejuvenating vacation away from phones, television, and (gasp!) cyberspace.

Included in the price are three healthful meals at the ocean-view restaurant, which specializes in vegetarian cuisine but offers seafood as well. Vegans and those with food allergies or other dietary requirements are accommodated. Expert body workers give several types of massage, and private yoga lessons are available, as are surfing lessons and surf safaris. A packed dirt path lead up and down the hilly, 12-acre property to thatch-roofed bungalows that open to the sea breezes. The showers also are open-sided so you can admire the views as you bathe. Comfortable beds are surrounded by mosquito netting; hardwood floors, bamboo siding, and thatch roofs complete the Robinson Crusoe feel of the place.
