Focus on relaxation through nature, nutrition and a variety of healthy activities at Haramara Retreat in Nayarit, Mexico. Situated on a hillside overlooking the ocean and wildlife, the secluded resort provides picturesque rustic views from the resort’s open-air spa, yoga pavilions, restaurants, guestroom balconies and palm-thatched huts along the property.
Take to the private beach for some sun, surf and relaxation or head to the Haramara infinity pool overlooking lush tropical surroundings. Enjoy healthy meals at the on-site organic vegetarian restaurants before heading to the wellness center. The entire retreat sits on 12 acres of undeveloped land that guests may choose to explore.
Between yoga classes, take the five-minute drive to Sayulita. Guests shop, dine and enjoy the hustle and bustle of this lively, but laidback beach town. Without electricity, TV, WiFi or air conditioning, Haramara is an ideal locale for the ultimate escape from everyday life.

Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
