Where is El Grullo Naturista located?

Our beautiful health retreat is located amidst the tropical vegetation of Quimixto, an exclusive and secluded beach south of Puerto Vallarta.

Quimixto offers a unique environment where peace, serenity and nature come together. Everything you need to reconnect with yourself.

We want you to feel at home in this hidden paradise, where we will always take care of you with a kind heart and a friendly smile.

Getting here

Access to Quimixto is only by sea, so you will have to board a boat to get to El Grullo Naturista.

1. Go to Boca de Tomatlán. A town that is approximately 30 minutes from downtown Puerto Vallarta. If you bring a car, you can leave it in the public parking lot.

2. Take a boat to Quimixto. Go to the pier and ask for the water transport that takes you to Quimixto. It can be public or private. The boat ride lasts around 15 minutes.

3. Walk or schedule a motorcycle transfer. The journey from the Quimixto pier to El Grullo Naturista is approximately 15 minutes by foot. If you prefer, we can schedule a motorcycle transfer.

If you are traveling with a lot of luggage or have any mobility difficulties, let us know to help you program the best option for you.

Colon cleanse:

 enemas

  • This service can be performed with 1 liter of flaxseed, natural, lemon, coffee, or garlic water
  • First, we’ll apply one liter of water and wait for you to go to the bathroom
  • Then, we’ll perform the irrigation with the recommended water for your specific case

20 liter cleanse.

Aerobic Exercise:

Our lymphatic system is an essential part of our immune system, and through aerobic exercise, we aim to help it detox your body.

We recommend:

  • Wearing comfortable clothes and suitable footwear to carry out your exercise routine
  • If you’ve never exercised before, start with a 5-10-minute walk and gradually increase the time
  • Practice low-impact exercises like walking, cycling, swimming, etc.

This is an essential therapy that helps your body effectively detox by activating your elimination organs.

Laughing is also an essential part of this therapy because laughter stimulates our entire body to function better.

How does it help?

  • Laughing for at least one continuous minute every day gives you a sense of well-being and happiness
  • The vibrations caused by laughter will help you maintain a stable emotional system, free of depression or anxiety, and a healthy immune system

Hot Onion Compresses:

  • We blend 200 grams of onion, add boiling water, mix well and let it rest for ten minutes
  • We then strain it and use the water to soak a cotton cloth and create compresses to put on your skin
  • The compresses are covered with a woolen cloth, and left for five minutes, (they’re renewed three to five times)
  • When finished, you’ll receive a cold-water rub

For our mud poultice, we use soil from the region, without chemicals or fertilizers.

  • First, we moist the soil with water and allow it to rest for a few minutes, then we stir it with a piece of wood or a spatula until its texture is like a balm
  • Next, we spread the mud on several newspaper sheets (previously cut to the size of the desired body part) and spread a uniform layer of mud on these
  • If applied to the stomach, the thickness shouldn’t be more than half a centimeter. If used anywhere else, the thickness can be up to 5 centimeters

Stinging nettle therapy  

  • Soak a cotton cloth or towel in cold water and squeeze the excess water
  • Apply stinging nettles to the skin to reduce inflammation 
  • Apply it onto your hot skin (on the desired area) by covering it with a dry wool stick
  • Wrap it loosely with a cotton cloth (raincoat, linen, or blanket)

This bath is prepared similarly to the genital bath.

Once you’re sitting on the table:

  • We’ll give you a moistened, thick cotton or linen cloth (facial towel) to gently rub your lower abdomen for 15 minutes
  • Make sure only to rub your lower abdomen and exclude your genitals
  • When finished, get dress without drying yourself

To apply the derivative baths (seating, genital, vital, etc.), we recommend you follow these instructions:

  • Before your bath: walk exposing yourself to the sun for a minimum of five minutes, to warm your skin
  • After your bath: walk exposing yourself to the sun for five to ten minutes
  • What cures is not the cold water but your body’s reaction to the heat

This service involves:

  • Putting water in a tub so that when you sit in it, the water covers up to your groins
  • You’ll then take water with one hand and use it to rub your lower abdomen from right to left and from top to bottom, on both sides
  • When finished, shake off the excess water and get dress without drying yourself

Our steam bath, also known as blood washing, requires a unique cabinet, so in this practice, we will only indicate blood washing in the sun.

During this service:

  • You’ll be lying on the ground with your head in the shade
  • Your naked body will be covered with a sheet, or wool blanket, and exposed to the sun to sweat for 20 minutes to an hour
  • This services are combined with whole-body cold-water ablution, as indicated in the cold-water rub.

It’s only applied between 11 am and 1 pm every day.
