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 most quiet 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 yoga shala sits along the Tzununá River, allowing for the sound of water to flow softly and soothingly into our daily practices. Furthermore, you will find at walking distance inspiring projects nearby such as permacultural foundations, academies, herbal apothecaries and farms such as Atitlán Organics to explore. In this relaxing village in the jungle rests a beautiful waterfall with the accompaniment of a small cave that makes meditation and chanting sessions wonderfully inviting.

Additionally, when keen on visiting the neighbor villages, you may relax knowing that you are only one short boat or Tuk-Tuk ride away! The closest villages to Tzununá are; San Marcos La Laguna, an exciting venue for holistic treatments and various spiritual events, and Jaibalito, the mysterious town with gorgeous hikes that is solely accessible by boat.
