Inspired by the tranquility of the Buddha's forest retreat tradition, La Casa de Loto offers a space for meditation and mindfulness practices amidst the beauty of nature. Our thoughtfully designed cabins, nestled in the forest with a mountain creek flowing by, provide comfortable spaces for relaxation. Each room features a private bathroom and a balcony, offering enchanting views of the surrounding mountains and forests. Breathe in the fresh mountain air and listen to the calming sounds of nature.

Travel from the airport usually takes around 1.5 hours, and around 2 hours from Medellin City (el Poblado). We recommend arriving in Guatapé a day before the retreat starts already, to make sure you arrive in time for the check-in at 2pm on Fridays.
