the healing medicine embodied and so profoundly
shared is unlike anything i've ever
experienced in human form.

The Santosha Refuge, is unique in the Mazunte area as it is a Residential Retreat and Darkroom Meditation Center where we promote conscious living and mindfulness. Nestled in a lush tropical, oasis this secluded refuge is close to the Hridaya Yoga Center of Mexico and the beautiful sandy beaches of Mazunte and San Agustinillo.

The owners Cristina Devi and Kalki, experienced teachers of Hridaya Yoga, Naam Yoga, traditional Tantra and
alternative healing therapies have created a private paradise in the center of a vibrant beach town.
 If you seek respite from the stress and uncertainty of these tumultuous times and long for a more detached, relaxed and mindful approach to living your life then The Santosha Refuge may be the home away from home you seek.


Presently the state of Oaxaca recommends that those traveling by air and those recently arrived from other countries keep to themselves for the first 10 days of their stay. So please during that period wear a mask in and out of the property, use the sanitizing stations, respect social distancing and avoid interaction with other residents, use the pool and yoga hall only when alone.

You may go out to order food or walk on the beach but refrain from socializing and using the communal kitchen.

Mazunte now requires that everyone wear a mask in all public places.
BE RESPONSIBLE we are not here to police anyone.
