    Jennifer Kagan

    Core Subject: Iyengar yoga

    Jen was introduced to yoga as a teenager by her mother but didn’t show much interest until a repetitive injury led her to yoga. Once she discovered Iyengar yoga, she dedicated herself completely in 2005 when she joined the teacher training program at the Institute of Iyengar Yoga New York and became certified in 2008.

    Rosa leads Iyengar intensives in the US, and internationally. She believes yoga is accessible, healing, and transformational to all who try it.


Xixim it´s more than a hotel, its a place to get away from civilization, and bask in a tranquil refuge, while admiring and living with the natural surroundings. And perhaps most important, to have the silence to find yourself again.

Xixim Hotel is located 11 km away from the fishing town of Celestun. In turn, the town is located 90 km away from Merida City, Yucatan. Located on the Yucatan peninsula northwest coast, Xixim extends between the Gulf of Mexico and a firth which shapes the famous Celestun Estuary. Home to an exceptional biodiversity, the estuary was named a Special Biosphere Reserve in 1989.


Xixim is located on the Gulf of Mexico

Our 32 spacious and attractively furnished suites were designed to harmonize with the surrounding nature, providing romance and intimacy in luxurious spaces. Every Mayan suite bungalow has a private terrace with thatched roof and an amazing panoramic view of the emerald sea.

For ecological reasons, the suites are not equipped with air conditioning. Instead, two ceiling fans, a well-designed air circulation system, and the Mayan technology, “la palapa” (high thatched roof), will provide you enough refreshing ventilation.

At Xixim, we want you to disconnect with civilization and connect with nature; that’s why we don’t have a television in the suites. If you want to watch a T.V. show or a movie from our video library, you may do so at the Bar El Santuario where we have a plasma T.V. with satellite signal (with many channels from the U.S.A and U.K.)

We have facilities for persons with different physical capabilities; two of our suites have been designed for people in wheelchairs.

We believe that the uniqueness and quality of our meals and beverages is a result of the attitude of excellence in our services.

Providing you with a panoramic view of the sand dunes and the sea, the culinary experience of Zaxim Restaurant invokes beauty, excellent cuisine and healthy nutrition. The extensive menu includes dishes typical of this region, as well as international and vegetarian cuisines.*

To accompany your lunch or dinner, Zaxim Restaurant offers cocktails, spirits and a wide-ranging wine menu.

An American style-breakfast, whether in buffet or à la carte form, is served between 8:00 am and 11:00 pm.

Lunch is served between 1:30 and 4:30.

Dinner is served between 7:30 and 10:00.

* Every ingredient has been thoroughly washed and disinfected.

* Every dish is prepared using drinking water.
