Our food is sourced from Huerta Organica, a local, organic and sustainable farm. Rythmia LAC presents foods that are of the highest vibration, innovative and creative, and of course nutritious and healthy. We’re committed to organic and sustainable local sourcing practices for the foods that we serve. That means that we do employ a “farm to table” mentality with our dishes. We provide every variation of diet from Vegan to sustainable meat consuming diets. All animal products that are served come from local farms using the highest levels of integrity around the treatment and practices of animal welfare.

Strong roots produce beautiful leaves. Let us nurture you three meals a day, and then some.

"I traveled to Rythmia by myself in October to help me heal trauma surrounding the loss of a loved one in 2016. It was a profound experience that created life long bonds with beautiful souls. I was able to let go and move into acceptance and view death through a different lens."

~ Jane O


We provide luxurious and spacious accommodations in a serene, quiet setting. Your room will invite you to relax and reflect, enjoy the stunning views of the forest and the enchanting songs of native birds. All rooms are furnished with original art, therapeutic beds and luxury resort decor.

Our rooms are all situated within casitas (small houses) with private bathrooms and plenty of air-conditioned space. Guests can book either single, double or triple bedrooms. Most of your time at Rythmia won’t be spent in your casita but it’ll be a perfect place to take a break, read or meditate, take a shower in some of the cleanest water in the world, or take a nap. Casita rooms are individualized in order to provide privacy, quiet and rest which will be so important as you’re relearning how to love and treat yourself right during your stay at Rythmia.
