Mexican Bliss Retreat with Ame Wren and Alison Sinatra, Quimixto, Mexico

Saturday March 19th~ Saturday March 26th, 2016 www.xinalaniretreat.com Nestled between a white-sand beach and the mountains, on a 10-acre property only accessible by boat, resides the eco-chic retreat center called Xinalani. Despite being only 12 miles south of Puerta Vallarta (making for easy travel to and from), Xinalani feels like it’s own island.
