Austin Adventures Announces New Yoga and Wellness Adventure in Chiapas, Mexico

Billings, MT, Nov. 28, 2011 – A March 19-24 wellness adventure on a private coffee plantation in Chiapas, Mexico, may well be the best way to deal with the winter doldrums of March, says Austin Adventures (ALA-, the active travel company setting adventure vacations standards in The Americas, Europe, Africa and most recently, Cuba. 

“This is ALA’s first-ever adventure itinerary built around wellness and yoga,” said Dan Austin, founding director. “But there’s no arguing with the curative powers of the Sierra Madre de Chiapas mountains around us, a tropical forest and a luxurious coffee plantation where we dine and lodge.” See:  

Argovia Finca Resort Yoga Retreat is a six-day / five-night program beginning and ending in Tapachula. Guests fly into Tapachula International Airport which offers daily service from Mexico City. The per person double rate (exclusive of air) is $2,198 with a $680 single supplement. 

"The combination of sunrise yoga accompanied by the sounds of the tropical forest, a steaming mug of Argovia's own plantation coffee, and the inner peace and soul cleansing that results from a week immersed in the wonders of the surrounding jungle makes for a restful, full body vacation,” reflected Kasey Austin, trip architect and field operation liaison. 

Activities include daily yoga, flora/fauna and sustainability / conservation tours including commentary on the traditional uses of plants in medicine, exploring the Mayan ruins of Izapa dating to 1200 BC, kayaking through mangrove swamps on the Pacific Coast (think crocodiles and jaguars), touring the fourth generation coffee plantation, hiking waterfalls and enjoying an Argovia’s temazcal, a traditional indigenous sauna bath and cleansing before a dinner overlooking a Mexican sunset.
