Named “the good life” for a reason…

Immerse yourself in an 8-day, 7-night all inclusive yoga, surf, and wellness retreat in La Saladita at Casa Creando Olas.

“It was the perfect blend of retreat and vacation. Yoga by day and night, surf by day and night, and the rest is up to you. It was the ideal setting, remote enough to disconnect and enjoy getting to know and learn from a strong, powerful and inspiring group of like-minded women.”

Casa Creando Olas sits right on the beautiful deserted beach of La Saladita, in Los Llanos, Mexico, a hidden gem and surfing town about 45 minutes northwest of Zihuatanejo. The house takes the phrase 'open concept' to a new level — it is completely open to the natural surroundings so you are immersed in nature and can enjoy beach living to the fullest.

The house sleeps 12 comfortably. The rooms represent beautiful simplicity so your mind can rest as well as your body will on this retreat. The home was constructed using local materials — the oversized palapa that covers the entire house is truly a work of art and craftsmanship. The front doors are reclaimed from a demolished 1600’s church in a local town in the mountains. Every latch, handle and hinge throughout the house was made by a third-generation blacksmith using his grandfather’s molds.

About the waves:

The region is known as the left-handed Mexican Malibu for its pristine coastline and perfect waves.

“Buena Vida Retreat was an absolute dream - from the incredible location right on the water with the most insane sunrises and sunsets to the fabulous group of women that hosted and attended. Heaven is 2 yoga classes a day and warm water right outside your door. ✨”


Two hours a week spent outdoors in nature is linked with better health. Choose to spend 8 days and 7 nights spent outside in a gorgeous, open-concept home that is one with nature. Give yourself permission to turn off your notifications and truly be present. 

With your body and mind. Strengthen your physical self with daily yoga, surfing and exploration, opt for a relaxing massage or all of the above. Feed your body with nourishing local, fresh food. Build healthy rituals that you continue for life. 

With women from different backgrounds who share similar intentions to practice self-care first.

”True growth comes from proper rest, more learning, building new habits, consistent honesty, letting go of old stories, saying no to old patterns, ready to act in new ways, believing you can change and saying yes to supportive people.” - Yung Pueblo

We’re here to support you, and each other!

We take self-care seriously, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have fun while doing it. This is the good stuff — running in the ocean naked, dancing at night, laughing with new friends, letting your inner weirdo shine. Buena vida retreat is a judgement-free zone.

“The Buena Vida retreat soothed my spirit and soul. It was the perfect mix of relaxation and action. Can’t wait to go again next year!”
