“A week at Hacienda del Sol, doing the ketogenic diet, was the best decision I ever made. It is an amazing place to relax, to be away from the daily stress, to enjoy the beauty of nature, the jungle, the ocean and quiet times. The master nutritionist, Ramiro, gave me so much information and advice. I will always be grateful.”


Lose Weight

Escape from the energy roller coaster, fat-storing, inflammatory effects of today’s grain-based, high-carbohydrate modern diet, and adopt an eating strategy that will reprogram your genes to prefer fat for fuel.

More Energy

Replenish your energy stores, flush your body, and reboot your system. Slow life down, taking time for play, sunlight and fresh air, and get deep sleeps.

Reverse Aging

Efficiently detox from sugar, as well as reduced excess body fat, with natural, easy-to-maintain lifestyle and diet changes.

Philosophy: Our Weight Loss Program is patterned after the diet, exercise, and lifestyle behaviours of our ancestors – The Primal Lifestyle

Nutrition: Guests participating in Hacienda del Sol’s Weight Loss Retreat have the choice to follow a Primal Ketogenic diet, or simple Primal Diet. The main difference between them comes down to the level of carb restriction.  Both diets are based on nutrient dense, locally sourced, whole foods. The difference is Primal Ketogenic has a severe carb restriction (25 net carbs, so no fruit allowed), whereas the simple Primal does not (50-150 carbs allowed, so certain fruits are ok). Weight loss tends to be deeper on a Ketogenic diet, as the carb restriction pushes your body to use fat from day one, yet this can be stressful at first. Primal, with its more generous carb allowance, is a gentler approach with a lot less stress hormone dump. A simple Primal diet is ideal for people that don’t want to jump straight into the deep water and make a softer metabolic shift.

Movement: Hacienda del Sol’s Weight Loss Retreat is paired up with many “nutritious movement” activities including hiking, primal fitness, primal yoga, reflect and recharge classes.
