Since Alix Goldsmith-Marcaccini opened Cuixmala to international travelers in 2003, her late father Sir James Goldsmith’s compound in Mexico has become a home-away-from-home to new friends from around the world.
The estate is a stunning 25,000 acres of land, lagoons, and beaches, featuring vast wildlife & unspoiled beaches. All the food served at Cuixmala is produced by the property’s own organic farm or by the family’s El Jabali ranch in the Mexican highlands.
Cuixmala stands for “soul’s resting peace”, and it could not but celebrate the end of the Maya calendar with a yoga retreat which will take place from the 15th to the 22nd of December 2012.
For the occasion, Cuixmala will welcome Maya Fiennes as yoga teacher, a renowned musician, author and yogini. Additional activities include snorkeling and kayaking, surfing, tennis, nature walks, bird watching, mountain biking, horseback riding, lagoon tours, sail boat rental, fishing boats, private massage and beauty treatments, access to a championship golf course and professional polo grounds.
Keeping in mind the great efforts Cuixmala has done towards sustainability with the EcoCuixmala Foundation, there will also be a touching releasing of turtles into the ocean.
At the end of the retreat, on the eve of December 21st, an additional theme celebration on the beach will be available for the retreat participants to enjoy, in order to commemorate the ending of the Mayan calendar.
