Finding Us

Visit Us In Mazunte

The Hridaya Yoga Center can be found in the charming and sleepy little beach town of Mazunte, on the Pacific coast of the state of Oaxaca in Southern Mexico.

Mazunte is 10 minutes from Zipolite, 25 minutes from Puerto Angel, 30 minutes from Pochutla, and approximately 1 hour from both Puerto Escondido and Huatulco.

Bus travel to Oaxaca City takes about 3.5 hours, to Acapulco, 10, and to Mexico City (TAPO Bus Station), 16.

Finding Us

When you arrive in Mazunte, walk along the main street with the ocean on your right. You will pass the Turtle Center, and soon after the road will begin to climb. We are located at the peak of the hill. If you start going downhill again, you have gone too far.

From Mexico City

By Plane: From Mexico City it is possible to get a flight to Huatulco or Puerto Escondido—check around for which airlines have these flights, and remember to search domestic Mexican airlines such as Volaris, Viva AeroBus, and AeroMéxico for special fares.

By Bus: You have to go to one of these two Mexico City bus stations—Central del Sur Taxqueña, or TAPO—and look for the bus company “ADO” (Camiones ADO). There you ask for a ticket to go to Pochutla, Oaxaca (pronunciation: Wahaka). They cost around $1400 MXN, usually depart in the late afternoon or early evening, and take around 16.5 hours to get to Pochutla.

From Huatulco Airport to Hridaya Yoga

There are several options. First, you can take a taxi from inside the airport directly to us, but this is the most expensive way and will cost around $2000 MXN. Or, you can exit the airport and walk 200 meters to the main road. From here, you can take a private taxi (with good bargaining, around $900-$1000 MXN) directly to our center. Your last option is to exit the airport and find a shared taxi to Pochutla (about $45 MXN), and from there take a taxi ($300-400 MXN) or colectivo (shared pickup truck, $20 MXN) to Mazunte/San Agustinillo. Note that all taxis charge more when you request air conditioning.

From Puerto Escondido Airport to Hridaya Yoga

A taxi from inside the airport will be around $2000 MXN. It’s cheaper to walk out of the airport to the main road, cross the street, and take a private taxi directly to Mazunte ($900-$1000 MXN, more with air conditioning). Or, take a taxi ($30 MXN) or colectivo ($10 MXN) into the center of town. From there, you can catch a bus (in the direction of Pochutla or Huatulco) from near the Chedraui supermarket ($50 MXN). Or, a more expensive bus also leaves from the bus station. Ask the driver to drop you off at Las Cruces de San Antonio (it’s the crossroads where the OXXO convenience store is located). From here, you can take a private taxi ($100 MXN) or colectivo ($15 MXN) into Mazunte or San Agustinillo.
