You will stay at a beautiful guesthouse in the Urubamba area, surrounded by lush gardens and areas to relax. There is a space for Yoga and mediation inside and outside in the grounds.

Relaxation and mindfulness is encouraged at all times during this retreat. You will sleep in simple but relaxing and warm room- offering hot showers.
