My week-long stay at Las Piramides was the highlight of my five week trip in Central America. Although everyone else was there on a three month or one month retreat, there was no problem for me to stay just for one week. The pyramid hut I shared with one other woman was fairly rustic but perfectly adequate. There's no kitchen--you cook your own food in the all-vegetarian kitchen and with an abundance of cheap produce nearby and decent health food stores, it's easy to make food on the cheap.
All in all, for less than $25 a day, it's a pretty good deal as it includes lodging, gentle hatha yoga class in the morning, a mid-morning metaphysics lecture, and a evening meditation class. Plus there's a really great library and the grounds and nicely leafy and shady. And it's right in San Marcus, so you can pop into the great restaurants for a strong coffee or healthy meal.
This is a great place to peace out on the shore of gorgeous Lake Atitlan and recharge. San Marcos is a perfectly peaceful and friendly place, if without any amenities like banks. But this was definitely just what I needed.
