Location, Accomodation, Food

Chakaura™ LIFE for LIFE™ Transformational Retreats are offered in collaboration with a small local resort located on the Gulf of Mexico, with miles of endless white beaches. Our retreat location is 40 minutes from the city of Merida city and 20 minutes from the Port of “Progreso” at the km 25.5 of the road “Progreso-Telchac Puerto”.

Offering direct access to deserted miles of pristine white beach, this relaxed Eco-friendly mini-resort, set on the Yucatán Peninsula, is 11 kilometers from the archaeological ruins at Xcambo.

The area is surrounded by natural flora and fauna; a nearby Cenote and a natural walking path bring an authentic experience to your stay with us. It is the newest and most beautiful mini resort on the Yucatan coast, bathed by the fresh sea breeze.

Yucatan will amaze you! Fall in love with its coasts full of Mayan culture and great temples. Enjoy, rejuvenate and transform in the Heart Centre of the world. There are many local places of interest for your day of outings such as The Pink Sands where hundreds of pink flamingos can be spotted.

Enjoy a day in Progreso, a small quaint fishing village with amazing small shops and local restaurants with an international flair for all palates.

The Chakaura™ Mini Resort accommodations look like beach villas. From the moment you arrive, the first thing you see is the tourist complex formed by towers with 24 rooms and eight junior suites.

The wooden stairs from outside of the towers communicate to the rooms above and give a picturesque look to the lodging center, where boats and other maritime ornaments adorn every corner of the gardens.

It is not strange to observe in the hotel, for example, the flora that you normally see along the shore of the beach. Iguanas roam the property freely; a joy to see. The accommodation is about sustainability and this gem of a place is relaxing and conducive to earth whispering activities. The rooms are equipped with:

  • Balcony or terrace with sea or garden view
  • 2 double beds or one king bed
  • Kitchenette with refrigerator and microwave
  • Air conditioner
  • Ceiling fan
  • Television with sky system



Join Michèle St.Amour / Chakaura™ for delicious meals in the Yucatan. The meals consist of healthy, fresh, local, mostly organic ingredients arranged into tasty dishes. All of the menus are fixed and offer three options in each meal.

The culinary herbs and greens we serve in our plates are local and the fish caught by the local fisherman in Progreso area. The menu can have fish or be completely vegetarian. The meals follow Gilles’ recommendation of low grain content high protein and mineral/vitamin nutrition.

All meals are balanced so you will enjoy healthy and nutritious foods based on the teachings you will get for proper support of your nervous system and health. All the menus are created by Michèle and Gilles from their extensive experience of eating for LIFE for LIFE™.

You are what you eat and as Gilles says, “If it has an ingredient list, then don’t buy it! It has something that is not healthy for you!” Michèle’s and Gilles’ recipes and local favorites! Sustainable and wholesome.

Healthy and easy to prepare at home! A daily breakfast brunch style, lunch, and dinner will be served during this retreat. Food will be served from the restaurant area. Fruits will be provided for mid-day snacks and aromatic infused waters to quench your thirst. These are alcohol-free events.
