Mexico is calling us back!
Join us for our 2nd Annual Lesbian Adventures in Love Retreat in this private oasis in Bucerias, Mexico.
You will experience an unforgettable 6-day, 5-night transformational vacation in a safe, structured cocoon alongside other lesbians. Your issues may be different, but your goals are the same - to create strong, stable and enjoyable relationships, while enjoying new friendships and exciting adventures.
Bucerias, Mexico is a sweet little town about 30 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta. Our retreat villa is a private, secure space with 9 individual bungalows surrounding a pool with lush landscaping that transports you to another world.
Each day begins with a chef-prepared breakfast, gathered around a large community table with good food, great conversation, and hot coffee. From there, we will migrate to the "family" room, where your relationship will become your primary focus.
The morning sessions involve a brief check-in, followed by a structured topic, and group discussion. You will be given a variety of exercises (most of which will be done privately) and offered time and space within the group to process your concerns and experiences.
The afternoons are reserved for play and relaxation. There are optional adventures to enjoy throughout the week, too. In the late afternoon, early evening, we will gather for a shorter working session, have dinner together, and then enjoy social time around the lighted pool or retreat to your bungalow for some private time together.
Our retreats are designed to create a low-stress, high-impact experience that will delight your senses, transform your relationship and create lasting joyful memories for years to come. The only regret you'll have is not joining us!

This is our 2nd retreat in Bucerias, Mexico. We had such a positive experience, we can't wait to return! As with any international travel, it is important to use common sense and sensible precautions. We found our experience to be very safe, and at no time did we experience a sense of danger in any of our adventures. Couples also reported a feeling of safety and security in our private villa, which is fully staffed, and gated.

Our 4 and 5-day immersive lesbian retreats for couples are equivalent to 3-12 months of couples counseling depending on your willingness to bring your whole self to the experience.
Many couples share frustrations about their counseling experiences, which include:
having to educate the counselor about their lesbian relationship
lack of understanding about issues unique to same-sex relationships
difficulty clicking with or relating to the therapist
feeling like the entire session is spent reliving your interactions from the week before
leaving the session feeling worse
intensified conflict and tension after sessions
feeling like the therapist favors one partner over the other
Trusting your relationship with someone is difficult – as it should be! There is no greater investment you make in your life than the investment you make in your primary relationship. We take your relationship very seriously.
When you invest in an Adventures in Love Retreat for Lesbian Couples, you are choosing an experience that was built specifically for your relationship by a trained couples coach with over 20 years of lesbian relationship counseling experience and significant education, training and credentials in couples counseling.
For 4 to 5 consecutive days, you will be offered a strong, safe container to unpack your relationship dynamics, spend time looking at them, understanding them, and developing new skills and strategies to help you create more effective ways of relating.
You are not opened up and left feeling uncomfortable and unravelled only to be told, “Times up, I’ll see you next week.”
Instead, we are with you at each step of the process. We will gently, yet directly, challenge you when necessary and support you and encourage you along the way. We know that what you feel and experience is real, even if it differs from what your partner feels and experiences. There’s enough room to hold both of your experiences, to allow them to unfold and safely co-exist.
We are always on the side of your relationship – not one partner or the other. Our goal is to create the safest, most accepting environment for each couple so you can do the work that awaits you.
All of the chef-prepared meals available onsite are included. On adventure days (this may occur once or twice during lunch-time), when we are away from the Villa, meals are on your own. Otherwise, breakfast, lunch and dinner is provided in the cost of the retreat.
