Retreat location

Doron Yoga & Zen Center is an eco-conscious yoga resort located in the breathtaking surroundings of Lake Atitlán. The welcoming home is situated in Tzununá (translates to Land of the Hummingbird) which rests amongst the many exceptionally unique villages surrounding the lake.

Tzununá is the perfect spot for reconnecting with yourself as it is one of the quietest villages around, populated mainly by Mayan locals. Amongst the various reasons that make the location special is the Tzununá River that runs through the garden with many meditations spots by it.

The main yoga shala sits along the Tzununá River, allowing for the sound of water to flow softly and soothingly into your daily practices.

Additionally, when keen on visiting the neighboring villages, you may relax knowing that you are only one short boat or tuk-tuk ride away! The closest village to Tzununá is San Marcos La Laguna, which is very popular amongst tourists.

Recommended Airports

Please book your flight to arrive at La Aurora International Airport (GUA). Airport transfer is not included in the price. The Doron Yoga team can help you arrange transportation to reach the retreat center.

If your flight lands after 2 p.m., please consider spending a night in Guatemala City or Antigua and traveling to the center in the morning. Private shuttles can be booked for flights arriving as late as 3 p.m., but you must also be prepared to pay for a private boat on the lake if you arrive after the public boats stop running.

The Doron Yoga & Zen Center works with local travel agencies/shuttle companies to help provide you with transportation from the airport and to other major centers of tourism in Guatemala. Shuttles run to and from the nearby town of Panajachel or directly to the center.

Please allow at least an hour and fifteen minutes from the time your flight is supposed to land to the time you book your shuttle.
