I attended a 5 day yoga retreat in May 2009. It was my first time to a tropical climate and my first yoga retreat. The experience exceeded my wildest expectations. It was beautiful, the vegetation was luscious (including mango trees within reach of my balcony, the food was simply amazing, the climate was hot in the days but cool at night, and the accommodations were utterly comfortable without being the least bit hotel-like. I really felt like I was in another world. Thank you. I hope to return soon.
