1) Omm Retreats: Yoga In Paradise Island
The name really says it all. If you’re looking for an escape from life’s constant demands and pressures, your next vacation needs to be at Omm Retreats on Holbox Island, Mexico. The island is a remote sliver of land off the southern tip of the Yucatan Peninsula. You’ve heard of this region thanks to the ever-popular spring break destination, Cancun. But don’t let the proximity to Mexico’s party-hardy spot fool you; Holbox Island is a completely different world. Holbox Island is part of a protected Nature Reserve – there are no cars or roads, just white sand, turquoise waters, and lots of beautiful nature. The yoga retreat includes four hours of daily yoga – two hours in the morning and two at night. The retreat is appropriate for beginner, intermediate, or advanced yogis. A six-day retreat starts at $900/person and includes accommodation, daily breakfasts, and a welcome and farewell dinner.
