You will be staying at an ocean-front resort, Present Moment Retreat. The beautifully designed accommodations and loving staff will please even the most discerning guests. The 11 private bungalows are the perfect antidote to the chaos of everyday life. Each unique bungalow is dedicated to one of the values that are held in the highest regard.

All bungalows have an indigenous palapa thatched roof, hand-crafted in the Mexican tradition, and are furnished with a pillow top queen-sized bed, luxurious 400-count cotton bedding, and a canopy of white linen. There are a few air-conditioned rooms available by request.

The rooms available in this retreat are Renewal, Bliss, Harmony, and Unity. The amenities are the same for all the rooms and include luxurious 400 count cotton bedding, pillow top queen bed, ocean stone shower floor, rain disk showerhead, private deck, meditation garden, view of the sea, wireless access, and antiques and fine art.


Bliss is just that, blissful. Blurring the lines between the indoors and out with its amazing vantage points to the sea, gardens, and pool, this bungalow will be the perfect place to rest yourself after a full day of resort adventure at Present Moment. Just a 30-second walk to the beach, Bliss is perfect for the outdoor enthusiasts.


Harmony was designed for families and friends to reconnect in an intimate and unpretentious setting. Carefully created for groups of three or four to share, this spacious, private bungalow has a full view of the gardens, pool, yoga pavilion, and the stunning Pacific Riviera. Here, there are no distractions and plenty of opportunities to enjoy one another's company.


Renewal is the perfect name for this refreshing seaside bungalow, with its open air design and garden setting. Here you can sit in one of the two matching rockers on your private deck and melt into the moment. With the Pacific a stone's throw from your accommodation, the sound of the waves insures a peaceful night's sleep.


Unity brings you together to celebrate your natural connections. This large, family style bungalow features three luxury pillow top beds, antique furnishings, rocking chairs and a view to die for. Although quite private, Unity looks out over the entire resort to the sea. Ideal for those who desire quality time to rediscover the true essence of each other.

Combine your yoga practice with meditation, pranayama, and Qigong to help you achieve the balance you find not only on your mat, but also in the water. Your surf yoga excursions start out with coconuts, yoga, and Qigong on the beach, and then take you into the water for paddling and relaxation techniques using pranayama.

From there, get stoked on the natural high of riding waves while learning all about the world of waves and meeting some of Natalie’s famous surf friends.

The Sierra Mountain Range is directly across the road from the resort. Enchanted with forests of pine, oak, and aspen and blessed with stunning blue skies, meadows, and mesas, your hike can be a gentle or an extreme adventure, it is up to you. Choose to have a local guide lead the way, or blaze new trails on your own. Don't forget to bring your camera.

Horseback riding on the beach

Present Moment Retreat features local, professionally trained, friendly, and beautiful riding horses. Walk, gallop, and cantor along the stunning beaches and beach towns of Troncones, Manzanillo Bay, and Majahua. Feel the transformational power as you get up close and personal with nature's positive energy. Not only do horses provide you with entertainment and excitement, they are also extraordinarily comforting and actually therapeutic.

Kayaking and eco-tours

Enjoy a relaxing experience paddling through La Boca estuary, surrounded by lush vegetation and home to many different species of local wildlife. Local marine biologist, Alejandro Rodriguez Pruneda, shares his encyclopedia-like knowledge of nature as he guides you through a maze of river ways. This is an absolutely beautiful vacation activity, especially great for bird watchers!


Troncones is situated in the midst of several beautiful snorkeling spots. Troncones Point, a short walk away, has a beautiful reef full of sea life. If you want to venture further, Present Moment Retreat will help you arrange transportation to Manzanillo Bay or Las Gatas, both of which are exceptional snorkeling destinations.

    "I have been to Present Moment with my husband several times, I have brought girlfriends and I even convinced my very discerning old boss to do his first solo vacation there. And he just texted me a few weeks ago to tell me he was on route for another trip. Here is what I tell people: It's not the cheapest escape you will ever have. But you are guaranteed not to regret it. The grounds are immaculate. The staff, from kitchen to therapists to instructors are genuinely lovely. The food is 5 star. The yoga varied and personal. For the yogi and the non yogi alike. The beach and the town are safe and authentic. Rest and Refresh (or something like that) is the best deal. I have also done Be-Light. Which - is good for re-setting your engines, avoiding margaritas and having a good laugh (do it with friends if possible). I never left the resort for my first 4 trips (why leave paradise?) and then was convinced to do an eco-tour on my last trip which left me with a broader understanding and appreciation for the community. My only 'tip' is that there is a room called Solitude that faces the street. I stayed in it twice. The first time it was magical and the second time, just noisy. And I heard these complaints from guests on later trips. Also - most rooms are open air. Which I love - the lovely sounds of the ocean - but air-conditioned rooms are available. But - that's it. Treat yourself! You will go back!"

    "I came to Present Moment retreat for a week long Yoga retreat at the end of January. I was a bit nervous initially as I was traveling alone, did not know anyone and wasn't sure what to expect. I am happy to say I had a wonderful experience. The staff at Present Moment was welcoming from the start and very attentive without being intrusive (they learned our names within the first day). The accommodations were well maintained and clean and I thoroughly enjoyed being lulled to sleep by the sound of the ocean. You can be as active or non-active at Present Moment as you choose. The spa staff was excellent and I highly recommend taking advantage of the various offerings (I had a shamanic massage session with Michelle and tried the Cacao Ceremony as well). Although I was here as part of a Yoga retreat, I did take advantage of a Yoga class offered by the staff and found it to be professional and beneficial, with personalized attention and readjustment to positions as required. The food was fantastic and definitely supportive of the "farm to table" initiative. I was able to try several different foods I had not had before, and I really enjoyed the way the local culture was interwoven into some of the meals. Overall, this was a very positive experience and I would highly recomment Present Moment retreat. I look forward to returning soon!"

    "Present Moment retreat is truly one of the most healing, heart opening and blissful places one can visit. The staff are incredibly sweet and like a family welcoming you into their sanctuary, every class is of the highest calibre from meditation to dance to yoga. Every few days there is a beautiful cultural performance in their restaurant with space to dance. The food is exquisite and always beautifully presented. Perfectly located on a beautiful beach with a refreshing pool to swim in, not to mention the most comfortable luxury Palapa bungalow accommodation... Present Moment attracts incredible people from all corners of the globe- like a nest for similar minded people to come together to heal, relax and regenerate. In my experience at Present Moment everyone I spoke to never wanted to leave- we all found a peace in our hearts and minds at this retreat Centre. I certainly plan to go back as soon as I'm able."

    "I had an absolute wonderful stay at present moment! I never wanted to leave and kept extending my stay. I ended up staying for six weeks and I'm already planning to come back. I did the be light package with only raw food for the first two weeks, the most incredible raw food I've ever had. It's absolutely no challenge sticking to the diet with that sort of menu. The last month I had food from the normal menu as well and it was absolutely delicious. I never had a meal I didn't like. All food is fresh, healthy and absolutely amazing. I also did yoga everyday. You can choose to be a part of either relaxing or more active yoga. The teachers are incredible and help you in whatever state you're in. It's perfect for both beginners and more advanced yogis. In the evenings they often have music and fun entertainments. The location is fantastic, right by the beach. I spent all days just swimming in the ocean or in the pool, having fantastic food, doing yoga and most of all just spending time with the wonderful staff and guests there. All the staff -everyone in the restaurant, the kitchen, cleaning ladies, in the office and in the wellness team are absolutely amazing. So warm, welcoming and helpful. The most wonderful set of people. I can't wait to go back and meet them again! I am always very honest and make sure to bring absolutely everything worth mentioning up. I have no bad reviews to share though, the place is simply heaven on earth. Troncones is also a wonderful little city, with lots of beautiful nature and fun places to explore. I would recommend everyone and anyone to go there if possible! You'll not regret it."

    "Hello CJ, I hope that this finds you well. It has been around 2 months since I left Present Moment and I have thought of my experience almost daily. I want to thank you once again for providing the perfect, magical environment for me to celebrate a half century in this body. It is surely a week that I will never forget. In addition to all of your other stellar qualities, I hope that you feel wonderful about the fact that you provide such a positve space for people to heal, renew, and find their way. Thank you very much. I know that I will see you again in the very near future. Love, Nancy."

    "Hi, Tom. I just wanted to let you know that I'm sorry I didn't get to meet you on my recent visit and share my impressions of your "paradise". I fell in love with CJ and your staff, and of course Present Moment. I really think that you have created a special place and the energy there is truly spectacular. Your taste in design, layout, and details is amazing... It is not too posh or overstated; in fact, very earthy, organic, and tasteful but also elegant and special, very special. I just wanted to personally thank you; it was worth saving up some hard earned cash so my mother, sisters, and I could have that magical week. Thank you. Good luck with all your endeavors and your new mountain retreat. Namaste."

I will miss this resort when I leave, but hope to one day find my way back. Thank you so much!"

    "Here's where we can let our Yin and Yang dance together until we become one with everything. Allow your inner energy to embrace dance and you will dissolve the tightness of your mind, body, and soul. Bliss equals heavenly happiness and look no further for it than here at Present Moment. You have created a great place to start a new day, a new year, or a new life... Let it be a new beginning for us all. Love and peace."
