About your instructor: Traci has been cooking since age 10. She switched to a plant-based diet in 2007, and learned to cook all over again. In 2017, she completed the Plant-Based Professional course at (contact info blocked) online culinary school.

If you are ready to disconnect from the stresses of a busy life, I highly recommend the Lake Villa Guatemala. It is one of the most peaceful places on the planet. - Bill from Puerto Rico

Venue Highlights

All of our retreats are private, so your tours and other experiences are one-on-one.

Towns in Guatemala can be quite noisy, but our center is on the private and tranquil south shore of Lake Atitlán. Unlike other locations around the lake, here you won't find the firecrackers, barking dogs, roosters, and loud boats. We are an oasis of peace and quiet.


Our two spacious bedrooms each have private bathrooms, including toiletries and plush towels. The Lake View room features a private entrance, two queen beds, and high quality bedding. The Garden View room features a king bed and a double bed with high quality bedding and satellite TV.

Our common areas include two spacious living areas, large patios, gorgeous gardens, and a private beach area.


Our whole-food, plant-based meals are lovingly created for your tastes and food needs. We support a variety of special diets including gluten free, soy free, nut free, and raw. We also support intermittent fasting.


It's about a 3.5 hour drive from the Guatemala City airport to our center. We arrange transportation with local professional drivers who will pick you up in either Guatemala City or Antigua. The transportation cost is approximately $125 (depending on the driver and exchange rates).
