The place 

You will stay in the heart of Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, Mexico at La Playita Beach House. This private beach-front property is right on the doorstep of some of the most impressive surf waves in the world.

With a large private pool, open plan kitchen and a sheltered lounge and chillout area, La Playita Beach House will cater to all your needs. Enjoy the peace and tranquility of this stunning location, the privacy that the property offers you – bring a book and enjoy the sand-kissed daybed with ocean views!



Puerto Escondido is host to one of the world’s most coveted waves at Zicatela Beach, right opposite La Playita Beach House. Otherwise known as the ‘Mexican Pipeline’, this wave is popular for its character and size, even the most experienced surfer is presented with a challenge.

Do not be alarmed, however, as the Mexican Pipeline will not be the beach of choice for novice and first-time surfers! You will get your feet wet with lessons on calmer waters, found at nearby beaches such as Carizalillo, La Punta, La Bara amongst others.

Puerto Escondido offers a multitude of wave locations for surfers of all levels. Already a surfer? Get ready to experience some of the best waves of your life, you will enjoy a half-day excursion (with breakfast or lunch included) with trusty surf guides at their secret spots and then be driven back to La Playita Beach House to share your stories with the group!

Touched by Yoga retreat is perfect for all levels of surfing from beginners through intermediate to advanced!

“Attending Touched by Yoga’s retreat in Puerto Escondido was a truly transformative experience for me. Every detail of the week was planned and executed with so much love and intention. I felt embedded in the Oaxacan culture and Puerto Escondido lifestyle. Everyone we met on our journey had a kind heart and joyful spirit. The experiences of surfing at sunrise and practicing yoga at sunset will stay with me forever. I am grateful for the guidance and support I received from Tina, Danny and the rest of the rockstar team they assembled. There is no doubt I would go anywhere in the world to attend another Touched by Yoga retreat.”


“I’ve been on many different types of holidays, all-inclusive, self-catering, cruises, adventure-style and of course backpacking but this was my first retreat – it for sure will not be my last! I felt completely relaxed, engaged, challenged and loved. As a complete novice at surfing, I was nervous but found the lessons and support very encouraging and I instantly loved being out catching waves. Every detail from food presentation and taste (yum!), stunning accommodation (I could hear the ocean from my bed!), ambience, activities, amenities – so many cherished memories. I can’t thank Tina and the Puerto team enough for a life enhancing experience! Strongly recommend a Touched by Yoga retreat to all, regardless of your experience in either yoga or surf.”
