La Artista Travels with…
Someone looking to discover the unexpected. Imperfect yogis. Unabashed tree-huggers. Locavores and foodies. Solo female travelers. Essential oil groupies. DIYers and natural dyers. Superfood junkies. Flâneuses.
Girls Only. Due to the nature of our accommodations, this trip is for the girls. Don't worry though, boys. We have plenty of other trips for you!
A small squad. This is an intimate trip in private settings, with only 12 places available.
This trip is…
Delicious. Pure flow. Fun. Adventurous. Immersive. Beautiful. Exotic.
Anything but Basic. Enjoy being treated like a friend, and make some new ones of your own, as you meet some of the wonderful people that call this part of the world home and delight in the richness it has to offer.
Real. None of the people you will meet are putting on a show for you. You will be sharing in their work, in their passion. This is sustainable tourism at its realest.
You will be staying at a boutique lakefront eco hotel near the city of Tarapoto in the province of San Martín, Peru. The spa and yoga studio we will be using are owned by the hotel and for the private use of its guests.
Each room has a private balcony and bathroom with hot showers, as well as an unobstructed view of the grounds and the lake. Located on 2 hectares of private lakefront property, your home for the week is a slice of paradise. Don’t be surprised if one of the 5 horses that live on the land pays your balcony a visit!
Due to the predesigned nature of the hotel, there are only 2 private rooms with en-suite bathrooms available. Each private room may accommodate a maximum of 2 people, and the cost of the room and services of the retreat will remain the same. Come with your best friend, or treat yourself to something special to start the year off right.
Each shared suite has two rooms with two beds each (NO BUNKS!), and one shared en-suite bathroom. If you are not traveling with a group of friends don't worry! Your roommates are soon-to-be friends!
Please contact us with any and all questions! We're here to help make this an incredible trip for you. You may also find the answer's to your question's in the official retreat website! Check the link!
