About Xinalani
our exclusive eco-retreat centre

Xinalani means seeds in nahuatl. Each detail of this environment has been intentionally cultivated to help you plant seeds of change. 


Xinalani is set amongst 10 acres of pristine vegetation on a private 250-yard-beach. You'll have tons of privacy and breath-taking views from all of our facilities, from the rooms to the yoga studios and spa. With 33 eco-chic rooms and beach casitas, six stunning yoga spaces, a temazcal (ancient sweat lodge), beach club, lounge bar, sand terrace, oceanfront spa, and a restaurant for yogis, Xinalani is a sanctuary of wellness and serenity.

As a sustainable eco-resort, our property is a sanctuary for wildlife. Our privileged location in the heart of the jungle and on the beach blesses us with the companionship of humpback whales, bottled-nose dolphins, iguanas, and birds such as parakeets, parrots, macaws, and woodpeckers.

Xinalani's team share the values of ethical and empathetic hosting, offering genuine and warm service to all retreat guests. They are united by their vision and fiercely committed to making Xinalani a sustainable retreat destination for generations of conscious travellers.

Traveling to the retreat: 

The closest airport is Puerto Vallarta and we recommend you arrive here. This is a common destination for traveller's from Canada and Esperanza's partners at Hanover Travel are happy to help you arrange your flights.  For anyone traveling from the UK or Europe, there are several flight options to Puerto Vallarta connecting through Mexico City or the United States. 

Xinalani is only 12 miles south of Puerto Vallarta International Airport (PVR), but is only accessible by boat. Please fly into Puerto Vallarta before 4:00 pm and fly out after 11:00 am in order for us to help arrange your travel.

Traveling to Mexico:

To travel to Mexico you will require your passport and a tourist visa. For Canadians, the tourist visa is a very simple process to complete on your flight into Mexico (your airline will give you all necessary documents on board). No vaccinations are required to enter Mexico (but you may want to check with your doctor for more information).


Weather in Puerto Vallarta: 

The weather in Puerto Vallarta can be spectacular all year long. Xinalani's location on the Central Pacific coast of Mexico, hemmed in by jungle-covered mountains gives it a sub-tropical climate with only two seasons, dry fairly warm winters (November to May) and hot, semi-humid wet summers (June to October). This region averages 345 days of sunshine and 60 inches of rain a year. Winter temperatures in the area average 80F with sunny dry days and cool evenings for perfect sleeping temperatures. 

Cancelation Policy: 

All retreat payments, including the initial booking deposit, are non-refundable but are transferable. This means that if you cannot attend, you can find someone to attend in your place and they can transfer to you directly.
