Lonely Planet Names Mexico Top 10 Places to Get Fit in 2013

It’s that time of year again when all of the leaders in travel are announcing their picks for 2013. And each year, we scour the lists.  This post will be one of many to come.

Here’s one I found, that had me seriously thinking about putting in my next vacation request in at work.

The setting – a luscious stretch of golden beach on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula – should take some of the sting out of the butt-kicking daily schedule at this much-imitated fitness retreat. Days begin at 6.45am and hop from gruelling vinyasa yoga classes to sweaty beach volleyball games to power abs workouts. Downtime means swimming in local cenotes (water-filled sinkholes) or hiking through the Mayan ruins of Tulum. If you’re down with a bit of a New Age-y vibe (think ‘tribal drumming’ lessons, dawn journaling sessions), then this might be just the place to kick off your New Year’s get-fit resolution. Solo travellers are welcome and encouraged.

The Bootcamp is in Tulum, an hour and a half south of Cancun. See www.bikinibootcamp.com.

If you have been here, tell us about your experience or if you would like to add another ‘get fit’ experience in Mexico to this list, let us know about it!
