Milagro Retreats

Kudos from Past Retreats:

"My first Milagro Retreat was in Baja almost four years ago. At age 50, I decided to take on the challenge of learning to surf. That experience was top notch, and I have since enjoyed two additional retreats in Tofino. Shani and her cohorts have managed to get the mix pretty well perfect: stimulating participants, extraordinary locations, opportunities for activity and relaxation, experienced and joyful staff, and food that is prepared with loving attention, then devoured with delight. Thanks Milagro, I will be back!"
