The volcanic lagoon is located inside a crater. Yes! You are reading correctly, the volcanic lagoon is 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.
It will be time to disconnect from the outer world and reconnect with you, your partner, and nature. Depending on your time of arrival (Volcan Laguna is flexible to different times of arrival), the first day is for you to settle in, discover Volcan Laguna grounds, brief them about your special needs and experience a boat tour around the lagoon. Volcan Laguna will treat you to your first culinary experience with them, the vegan dinner.
Note: Please do get in contact with Volcan Laguna to allow them to help you with your arrival. This couples retreat is available from Monday to Friday every week except during the summer time since the rain makes it hard to provide the best service possible.
Wednesday excursion allows you to discover two waterfalls in one day. You will feel the water collide with your body as you swim behind the waterfall. Rock formations around the river bed serve as decoration for the majestic waterfall. The sound of the water falling provides a constant tone that allows visitors to stay in tune with nature. You will leave at 10:00, allowing you to digest breakfast. The drive to the waterfalls takes about 20 minutes of driving through rural Mexico and you even get to see a typical Mexican village on the way to the eco-park.
Arcadia Eco-Park provides visitors with bathrooms and stairs all the way down to one of the waterfalls. The first waterfall involves a five to 10 minutes' hike down. This is where you will have a guided meditation followed by time to explore the area. The second waterfall is where you will enjoy a picnic with your partner. Volcan Laguna will provide everything.
Inside a volcanic crater, a lagoon was formed long ago. Volcan Laguna retreat center is located in the volcanic lagoon of Santa Maria del Oro, Nayarit, Mexico. The retreat center is halfway between the coast and the second biggest city in Mexico, Guadalajara. The mountain range around the location is spectacular and allows visitors to see different volcanic formations and vegetation types. The microclimate created by the lagoon is a temporary rainforest. This means that during the rainy season, you will find lots of exotic bugs and flora and after that, the region becomes slowly dry until it reaches an arid climate.
Volcan Laguna retreat center is located directly at the shore of the volcanic lagoon. They are half way between Guadalajara and the Pacific Coast of Puerto Vallarta. The mountain range allows you to see different types of volcanic and geologic formations. The deep waters make it the ideal climate for huge trees to thrive next to the water.
There are at least 90 feet of water below you. This lagoon is so deep. Its energy is special and healing since it is a volcanic crater filled with water. This is certainly a unique place on earth. You will wake up to hear the birds at dawn. It is a true concert since the lagoon is a bird sanctuary and people from all around the world visit to see the beautiful exotic bird species. Discover the surroundings, waterfalls, hikes, and rural areas around the lagoon which are beautiful to explore.
