from United States, August 2018


This retreat was a transformative experience. Aimee took great pains in creating a schedule that allowed us to be as reflective or leisurely as we wanted. Villa Sumaya was breathtaking and the staff was very accommodating.

I made friendships that will last a lifetime.

San Marco is special.

A hippy community since over 30 years - in harmony with the natives.

The Yoga Forest is even more so, a special place to stay for a yoga retreat or sustainable organic farming in midst of the jungle.

It's about 20 minutes walk from the village.

Prices are rather high, in comparison to those in the village, but first of all it includes the meals and there is a discounted price for a week.

A highly recommendable place with an amazing view over the lake and an indispensable visit for sustainable living.

It's even wifi free!!! That helps to unwind and arrive in the jungle.
