Just return from a 1 week yoga retreat at Villa Sumaya. Went last week of January. 17 participants.
Never been to Guatemala. I had high hopes for the trip but Villa Sumaya was fabulous beyond my expectations. It's the kind of place that is the labor of love of the person/people who run it. Every detail is done to pefection. They take care of you from the moment you land in Guatemala City. The accomodations, landscaping, site location, food, all fabulous. Vegetarian cuisine. I am not a vegetarian but I could be if I could eat food like that .
This is high season. They had many healing therapists on site that were the best I have ever experienced. Massage and all different kinds of healing techniques. Wasn't planning on doing much of that but could not let the opportunity pass. All the members of my group reported only incredibly wonderful experiences with all the different therapists.
Lake Atttillan is one of the most beautful, interesting places on earth. Can't wait to g back.
