Ideally situated on a stretch of secluded powder-sand beach at the edge of a picturesque fishing village, Ceiba Del Mar offers an ambiance of luxury and comfort, suites with ocean views, beautiful Mexican and Mayan architecture and unparalleled service and amenities – the perfect setting for a Yoga retreat.
