One of our favorite places in the world is in Mexico, a town called Mazunte. This is a little hippy town in the Oaxaca province. We spend two years here doing Yoga at Hridaya yoga. An unique center teaching Yoga in a way that is not done by many schools.
Hridaya focusses its teachings on the spiritual heart. During all the classes they use inquiry while staying long in the poses / Asanas. They do different courses and you can join with a low budget, since all prices are very reasonable. The teachings are very deep so you will go through stuff, more than the average Yoga course in our experience. After the 24 day Yoga module 1 you could join them for a 10 day silent retreat. Something one has to put on their bucket list if you would ask us. 

Combine this beautiful Yoga course and silent retreat with the beautiful blue ocean and white sandy beaches of Mazunte and you have the most perfect combination. We absolutely love Mazunte, it is very peaceful and you can live there with a low budget. 

Best time to visit

The best time to go is from October to March which is the dry season. Our personal favorite time is October which is the end of the Rainy season.  Not many tourist arrive yet so it is super quiet. Click here for more average weather information in Mazunte.
