Creative Fiesta 5 Day Retreat, San Pancho, Mexico

Do you want to extend the Radiant Retreat  for more exploration, rest or to dive deeper into your writing? Or maybe you want to see the village of San Pancho?

Now Jennifer offers a post-retreat to give you new ways to customize your retreat adventure. Why not extend the discoveries and fun and spend a few more days with Jennifer exploring the village of San Pancho, Nayarit, Mexico (40 minutes by taxi North of Puerto Vallarta).

Arrive Saturday, Feb. 15 – Depart, Wednesday, Feb 19, 2025, San Pancho, Nayarit, Mexico. (Or stay longer on your own).

San Pancho is a charming walkable cobblestone village on the sea. The main street of shops and restaurants dead ends in a square at the beach. Bring your binoculars, as birds flock in trees and the wide, long pristine beach hosts sunbathers, families and surfers to celebrate the setting sun.

Creatives, artists, writers, foodies, beach, birders and surfers will adore the old-world Mexican charm of Pan Pancho. Tuesday’s don’t miss the farmers market brimming with mariachi, crafts, clothes and food.


Fun fact: The creator of Cirque De Sole, Gilles Ste-Croix, retired to San Pancho and created Circo De Los Ninos De San Pancho. You will see local fire dancers, jugglers and circus performers enjoying their craft and adding a certain magic to the local culture. The restaurants – from local street vendors to sushi, Italian or a chic café – offer something delicious and fresh for every taste and budget. All welcome who want to explore their creativity and enjoy the culture of a small village on the sea.
