Holistika Wellness Resort - Tulum, Mexico

I just got back from the most amazing place in the entire world (and I'm not exaggerating) - Holistika Wellness Resort in Tulum, Mexico. This is the second time I've gone, and each time, I've come home feeling like I'm high on life. I'm making this a ritual to go every year by myself to reset and rejuvenate. 

After being restricted from international travel for several years due to the pandemic, this was the first trip I booked out of the country last year. I missed yoga (the studios were still shut down in LA), I missed traveling, and I wanted to go somewhere affordable with warm weather, a spa, healthy food, and yoga and energy classes. After lots of research, I decided on Holistika, and I'm so happy I did! 

First off, the grounds are gorgeous. If you're looking for a beach resort, this isn't the place - it's set back in the jungle (which I love), and there are pools with hammocks, a vegetarian restaurant onsite, a smoothie bar, a spa, a treehouse, and several gorgeous buildings where they hold not only yoga classes, but also classes on breathwork, meditation, Reiki and sound healing. They even have an art walk in the jungle where you can take a short hike and see gorgeous murals and sculptures. 

They also have daily ceremonies for energy and healing. I did a two-hour sweat lodge, which I was a bit apprehensive about (as someone who is terrified of enclosed spaces), but I sat by the door, breathed through it, and afterward felt amazing! The steam clears out your toxins, makes your skin feel great, and makes your whole body feel so relaxed. I slept like a baby afterward. 

The rooms are huge, and each room has a hammock in it, and it's own patio. 

The best part is, there's a store and restaurant onsite, so there's no reason to leave! I'd usually wake up, have coffee on the patio, get a smoothie, lay on a hammock in the pool for a bit, go to a yoga class, eat lunch, get a massage, go for a hike in the art walk, read or meditate in my room, go to an energy class or a ceremony, then have dinner and relax in my room for the rest of the night. I can't remember the last time I felt so connected to myself and so genuinely happy inside. 

If you're looking for an affordable getaway to relax in the sun, raise your vibes, connect with yourself, or all of the above, I highly recommend it! I wish it was closer - I'd be there more often!
