nya fire ceremony

Fire ceremony with a Mayan priest in Santiago Atitlan

A retreat is defined as a period of seclusion or a place to which one may retire for refuge and quiet. At Lake Villa Guatemala we offer a nurturing environment for your inward journey. We also offer options that allow you to experience the amazing beauty and Mayan culture of Lake Atitlán.

Your time here is as individual as you are. Spend your day in meditation and contemplation; enjoy hiking, swimming, yoga or kayaking; allow the natural beauty to inspire artistic and creative expression; immerse yourself in local history, traditions and culture. We can arrange personal tours of local sacred sites, ceremonies with Mayan priests, and sessions with local healers.

Our independent retreats are not all-inclusive, but do include the following:

  • Lodging in one of our spacious rooms (with private bath)
  • Full vegan breakfast
  • Use of the grounds and kayaks
  • Assistance in planning your excursions around the lake. Guided tours are available for an additional fee.
