Directions from Puerto Escondido
Coming from Puerto Escondido centre, heading on the highway in the direction of Pochutla and Huatulco, take the first turn right to La Punta, at Rubi's mini-super. At the bottom of the hill turn left into Brisas de Zicatela heading away from the sea (do not turn right towards Casa Mar and the sea), go past Internet Zicatela and take the second turn left into Quintana Roo. You will then see our beautiful house (see picture above) half a block ahead of you.
Alternatively, on the highway you could continue past Rubi's mini-super and take the 1st concrete road turn right into Quintana Roo (no sign). You will however see our Sanctuary sign on the corner. Continue 1.5 blocks and you will see our house.
Transfer from Bus station: You can take a taxi ( 40 pesos). Tell them: The Sanctuary, "un centro de sanacion donde hacen yoga, en la Punta. Doble a la derecha enfrente de la tienda Rubi y despues tome la seconda calle a la izquierda:Brisas de Zicatela. Y Secunda calle a la izquierda: Quintana Roo." Aqui estamos! Here we are!

Directions from outside of Mexico
If you are travelling from outside of Mexico (for most people this is from the US) the best way is to make your way to Mexico City. There are many airlines that fly to Mexico City from the US (US Airways, Delta, United Airlines,etc) most of which if you book far enough in advance are quite cost effective
The cheapest is usually Viva-aerobus where you can pick up a flights from $40 USD if you book 2 to 3 months in advance. They are however a little sneaky by limiting the weight allowed for checked baggage to 15 kgs and they make an extra charge for paying by card, which is the only way you can pay!
An alternative is to fly to Huatulco then take the approx. 2 hr bus ride from Huatulco to Puerto Escondido. Interjet https://www.interjet.com.mx/ service Huatulco from Mexico City and offer more generous luggage allowance than the other airlines. To search all the airlines you can use http://www.despegar.com.mx/
If you want to take the bus it is about a 12 to 17 hour bus ride from Mexico City the last 6-8 hours of which is very, very, windy roads. ADO http://ado.com.mx/ado/index.jsp charge about 800 pesos, and ETN Turistar charge around 1,000 pesos, but their buses are more luxurious and the trip is shorter.

Transfer from Puerto Escondido Airport
There are some choices. You can take an airport approved (approved to charge 2 or 3 times the usual price) dedicated white taxi at a cost of around 150 pesos. Or, you can take an airport approved shared taxi for about 70 pesos. You can get one of these from immediately outside of the airport door.
Alternatively you can walk to the highway (approximately 700 metres from airport exit), cross the road and get a green and white taxi at a cost of 40 - 50 pesos. Or, from the highway wave down a maroon & white shared taxi or a collectivo (pick up truck with canopy over the back and bench seats inside). Both of these cost 6 pesos.
