Join us on the adventure of a lifetime, as we journey on a 9 day Mayan Discovery Retreat to one of the world's most beautiful lakes. You will fall in love with the natural beauty of the breathtaking Lake Atitlan and the three majestic volcanoes, Atitlan, San Pedro and Toliman that surround it.


21st Feb - 2nd Mar 2019


Our Mayan adventure will begin in the gorgeous UNESCO World Heritage city of Antigua. We will spend 2 nights here. This is a must see destination, full of colonial architecture, cobblestone streets and picturesque surroundings. Our exquisite hotel is close to the city centre, allowing plenty of opportunities for leisurely walking, visiting museums and immersing ourselves in Mayan culture.


For the following 7 nights, our home will be a serene wellness eco resort, boasting spectacular views of Lake Atitlan. The resort offers beautifully decorated private rooms, natural lush gardens, sauna, solar heated pool and hot tub, a fair trade boutique gift shop, a juice bar and many inspirational, relaxing places to hide away with a good book.


During our stay, we will take part in relaxing meditation sessions in the magnificent Blue Tiger Temple. We will participate in traditional Mayan ceremonies, exploring the culture of the Mayan people. There will be plenty of time to relax and pamper ourselves with massages or healing sessions, explore one of the quaint local villages or just soak in the stunning views from one of the many colourful hammocks. If you enjoy more adventurous activities you can kayak on the lake or hike up a volcano.

This is a very special retreat guaranteed to captivate the imagination and soothe the spirit.
 

Our Mayan Discovery retreat is open to people with any level of meditation experience. We encourage non-meditation spouses, partners and friends to join us. There is plenty to discover on this truly magical trip!
