Leanne Whiting, Grow A Lotus Yoga, Retreat Leader, May 2015

Tailwind Jungle Lodge is a hidden sanctuary in amongst the enchanting presence of the Jungle! Tamara and her family create the most welcoming environment that felt like home away from home for us & all of our retreat participants. The magic of the jungle is uniquely adventurous, breathtaking & inspiring. The perfect place to retreat, rejuvenate & reconnect to oneself & the breathtaking beauty of Mother Nature.

Megan & Arthur, Wedding, May 2013 (San Pancho)

Our wedding week at Tailwind exceeded our wildest expectations! The picturesque setting was unrivaled and the setup of the accommodations really created a sense of community among our guests, while still affording everyone their privacy. Our guests enjoyed a week filled with adventures: sea kayaking, yoga seasons, snorkeling, hiking, SUPing and surfing, and even a private spa day! You've never truly enjoyed a full body massage until you've enjoyed it with the jungle and ocean providing the soundtrack! The ceremony was absolutely beautiful and we could never imagine a better place to have celebrated our love with our family and friends.

Erin & Marc (Denver, CO)

What a magical spot! We are already hoping for and planning a return trip soon! Loved the hike and cooking breakfast at the bungalow, relaxing with coffee, watching and playing in the waves, eating fish tacos (Baja Taqueria!). Next time we are here if it is to be so, we look forward to Stand Up Paddle Boarding, yoga and the markets. Muchas gracias Tamara, Judi, Tigre (& Pancho) for welcome us like old friends.

Jasmine & Bob (Oakland, CA)

Eight days of paradise, what a gem of a spot this is. Everything you need and nothing you don't. We were truly in heaven- jungle, sky, water all meeting here. Thank you.

Siri Gopal, (Kundalini Yoga Retreat Leader, Nov. 2010)

It was a pure blessing to have found the Tailwind jungle lodge to host my annual Kundalini Yoga Retreat for 2010. I wanted to express my heartfelt thank you to the amazing Jacobi family for taking such great care of myself and my guests. Upon arriving, I had many visions attached to what I thought the Lodge would be like, based on photos from the website. I never could have imagined such an endearing, magical place. It was like being in paradise! The functionality of your space and your dedication to preserving and maintaining the natural environment was astounding. My guests and myself were in awe at the beauty of the experience.

Chad & Jen (Telluride, CO)

This place is wonderful. Everyday we felt fortunate to be here and explore the jungle and beaches. I wish I had more time here but I am happy I was able to spend the 3 days we did and to meet all of you. You are all very kind and relaxed. I think your values and joy de vivre, sense of adventure, and life experiences are something inspiring. You motivate me to not take this life to granted, to re-energize my pursuit of happiness and my understanding of what happiness means!

"Our wedding vows on the beach in San Pancho summed it up... "Now we stand together facing the world"-- what better a world to face than Tailwind's serenity and bliss. A dreamy beginning to a lifetime of love, courtesy of the Jacobi Family. Thank you for hosting a week more beautiful than ever imaginable."

Abby & Sid

One day will not be enough. We are so happy and feel so blessed to have been referred by a friend to come here. This place was the perfect end to our honeymoon. Casita Tejone is beautiful. We love the peace and jungle. The beach here is unreal, we were the only ones down there for several hours and it felt like a dream. I love the jungle and how the palms mimic the sound of the waves. We will tell our friends (at least the deserving ones) about your place and we'll be back soon! Thanks for the hospitality.

Kristin & Jon (Berkley, CA)

Querida Tamara, Tigre and Judi, What a perfect escape for our "babymoon". We have grown so comfortable in our bungalow perch surrounded by lush jungle palms, strangler figs, Tejones, iguanas and crazy sounding birds. Thank you for welcoming us into this truly special place. We admire your striving to lower your footprint on the jungle environment and hope you will be an example to others-locals and guests-on how to lesson their impact.

Jon & Whitney (Portland, OR)

Adios Jacobis! The you so much for letting us enjoy this sanctuary. We were looking for something unique, beautiful, and adventurous, and we could have asked for something more perfect. We will definitely be back again one day, and might bring a few friends along as well.

Kristen and Paddock Family, April 2009

"If we could, we would quit jobs, enroll our boys at la escuela en San Pancho and stay for a lot longer! We have enjoyed every minute of our stay. This is a wonderful paradise from which we leave refreshed, well rested, souls lifted and lives feeling re-aligned. If only our cameras could capture the sounds of the waves, the chachalaca birds, and the wind in the palms. Thank you for everything, it was a pleasure!"

Alex Schirer, (Amber's Hammock)

"If you want a great travel destination that will blow you away physically and mentally, check out Tailwind Outdoor in San Pancho, Mexico! Tucked away in the jungle north of Puerto Vallerta, it is the coolest place I have ever stayed on vacation and the staff knows exactly where to go and what to do. Great locale for kayaking, surfing, trail running, yoga and relaxing. You'll never get bored!"

Justin, February 2009

"Tailwind Outdoor was the best choice i made for a place to get away to for some relaxation and individual time with my friends. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly during our stay. The facilities were clean and amazing, the setting could not be more perfect especially for the price. Having traveled all around the world I have been to many different eco-tourist sites and found this one to be one of the best. It small setting with access to its own beach was very nice, close enough to town to enable lots of different site seeing and interaction with the locals. Overall, of the month I spent traveling in Mexico on this trip and combined with the other trips i have had, Some of my best days were spent at Tailwind. I would highly recommend this spot to anyone!"

Dominique, January 2008

"What a perfect month I had! what was suppose to be just a few days turned into a four week experience. Staying in the eco-bungalow has to be of of my most memorable stays . . . To wake up to literally being in the middle of the palm trees in the jungle was breathtaking and very grounding to be such a part of nature. With the ocean faint in the back and the beach down the steps, the birds calling, the candles by the pool, the dorado (mahimahi) meals, the margaritas, yoga on the platform, what more could one want?! Thank you to all the Jacobi's - you're the best hosts!"

Nicole (Napa Valley, CA)

"Thank you for creating such an inviting, relaxing, peaceful place in the jungle. The cool breezes, ocean sounds and nature keeps us content to just be. I hope to visit again soon!"


"This place is fantastic! We had a fabulous time at the wedding and it was great to come back and kick it at this hyper-chill crib!"


"Tailwind, how can I thank you enough for your open hearted welcoming to Mexico and the Jungle? I feel so at home, and lucky to have found this magical spot."

David & Patricia

"The jungle is amazing. Your place is so peaceful. A perfect place to reconnect with one's inner self. We don't want to leave!"

Ryan & Michelle

"What a fabulous piece of paradise that you have here. It's hard for us to leave. Waking up to the birds, trees swaying calmly and the distant sound of the ocean waves. We loved the open air concept and the minimal environmental impact design. The food and hospitality were amazing and we loved the conversations of adventure, experiences and life in general. We'll be back soon!"
