On this retreat, you will be staying in two villas of Casa Los Mangos, which are located directly on the lake, on sharing basis. Double rooms with private bathrooms and dorm rooms with a shared bathroom are available. The villas are spacious and there is enough space to feel at home and find a comfortable place to relax during the free time.

The volcanic lagoon is located inside a crater, so Wi-Fi is not available. Volcan Laguna is happy about this since most of the participants have stated that this lack of internet has given them the time and freedom to go within and heal without any outside disruptions.

So, embrace this fact and enjoy. Volcan Laguna highly encourages you to tell your loved ones and job partners that you will be offline during your holiday so that everyone will be at peace knowing that you are in a peaceful place.


This practice blends the ancient wisdom of yoga, the effective and profound effects of acupressure, and the healing and transformative physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual power of pure YoungLiving essential oils. You will learn the essential yoga self-practice techniques for a healthy spine, chakra balancing, and physical and emotional detox.

When you finish this retreat, you will have the tools and techniques for creating effective practices that support your overall health. You will also be able to safely incorporate more than 10 pure YoungLiving essential oils in your yoga practice and daily life, as well as knowing where and how to use acupressure and essential oils for headaches, insomnia, stiffness, stress, indigestion, constipation, back pain, balancing the energy in your body, support for your emotional health, and some surprises.
