Our retreats nurture our connection to the sacred medicine and plant teachers through spiritual teachings, temescal/tuj ceremonies, (sweatlodges with medicinal waters), pipe and fire ceremonies, cultural immersion with the Maya, and time with nature, the gardens and the medicine plants.  The magical waters of Lake Atitlan are easily accessible and ever-present in the views and sounds of this sanctuary that can only be reached by boat.  

Patziapa offers various accommodations with comfortable beds, solar power, solar water heaters, and prepared meals incorporate as many organic options as possible. With thousands of plants of all kinds, it has been called "the ultimate botanical garden."
