Looking for the best Mexico Yoga Retreat?

Even though the art of doing very little is a specialty we provide at Present Moment Retreat, we also believe that no vacation to Mexico would be complete without an adventure. We are blessed to be located in an area with an abundance of activity options. The availability of adventures varies by season, so kindly email if you would like specific information on what’s happening now, or what’s coming up.

In addition to our signature yoga, spa treatments and dance classes, there are exciting, engaging adventures that are detailed below such as Kayaking, Hiking, Horseback Riding, Surfing, Snorkeling, Boogie Boarding, and participating in a Baby Turtle Release.


The Sierra Mountain Range is directly across the road from the resort. Enchanted with forests of pine, oak and aspen and blessed with stunning blue skies, meadows and mesas, your hike can be a gentle or an extreme adventure, its up to you. Choose to have a local guide lead the way, or blaze new trails on your own. Don’t forget to bring your camera!

We all know that hiking isn’t just fun, it’s also really good for you. Find out just how good it is Suki Reed’s fine article, “The Healthy Side Effects of Hiking.”

Kayaking and Eco Tours

Enjoy a relaxing experience paddling through La Boca estuary, surrounded by lush vegetation and home to many different species of local wildlife. Local Marine Biologist Alejandro Rodriguez Pruneda shares his encyclopedia-like knowledge of nature as he guides you through a maze of riverways. This is an absolutely beautiful vacation activity, especially great for bird watchers!!!

Kayaking isn’t just fun, it’s also good for you. To learn more, read the article, Rock Your Boat: Learn to Love Kayaking.

Surfing In Troncones and La Saladita

Countless surfers come to Troncones for our classic point breaks. There are amazing waves for longboarders and shortboarders alike.  Excellent conditions for both beginners and experts. Lessons available upon request. If surfing is the focus of your vacation, we have designed three different packages for you to choose from, so check out our Surf Packages!

Horseback Riding on the Beach

We feature local, professionally trained, friendly and beautiful riding horses. Walk, gallop and cantor along the stunning beaches and beach towns of Troncones, Manzanillo Bay and Majahua. Feel the transformational power as you get up close and personal with nature’s positive energy.

Not only do horses provide us with entertainment and excitement, they’re also extraordinarily comforting and therapeutic. “The Benefits of Therapeutic Horseback Riding” explores the origins and benefits of this unusual form of therapy.

Boogie Boarding

If surfing isn’t your interest, you might want to take one of our complimentary boogie boards out to play in the waves. Adjacent to Present Moment is a long stretch of idyllic beach perfectly suited for swimming, boogie boarding and playing in the waves.

Troncones is situated in the midst of several beautiful snorkeling spots. Troncones Point, a short walk away, has a beautiful reef full of sea life. If you want to venture further, we’ll help you arrange transportation to Manzanillo Bay or Las Gatas, both of which are exceptional snorkeling destinations. Renting a mask and snorkel is possible, but we highly recommend that you bring your own.

To get a taste of the snorkeling experience, read Jen Garland’s story about his adventure Snorkeling Zihua.

Turtle Release

Due to a international culinary traditions, ocean contamination and irresponsible fishing practices, the population of Sea Turtles has been decimated, making them an endangered species. Present Moment works closely with the Sea Turtle Sanctuary to repopulate this magnificent creature. Every afternoon on Troncones beach dozens of Sea Turtles are released and you can take part in this amazing experience.
