The Yoga Forest in San Marcos la Laguna is a yoga & Permaculture Retreat, offering a space for relaxation and rejuvenation in a unique forest sanctuary setting. Inclusive rate with daily yoga classes, 3 vegetarian meals, forest tours and sauna.

The space

The Yoga Forest is a yoga & Permaculture Retreat and learning center. We aim to provide a space conducive for growth and self exploration.

Guest access

Guests can enjoy the amazing sanctuary, our forest gardens, communal areas, sauna and Yoga Shala when it is not in use. This inclusive rate includes accommodation in a shared room (of up to four guests), daily yoga classes, three vegetarian meals, use of the sauna and a Permaculture tour.

To find The Yoga Forest, find the last road at the back of town with the high school on it and look for the painted flowers on the stones along the mountain paths. Follow the flowers the 20 minute hike up the valley until your reach our gate.

Alternatively, take a tuk tuk to el Cemeterio en Barrio 2. Take the mountain path north and follow the path for 10 mins until you reach our gate.

If you have any trouble please call us (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN).

Hayley was great - and the yoga forest is a wonderful place to stay. Great location: amazing view, wonderful permaculture forest, delicious food, comfortable beds.... Only downside is the long hike up the path to get there. Easy if you've done it once, but challenging to find and follow the first time. Make sure you don't arrive in the dark!

We were warmly greeted by Marcos and eventually introduced to Haley and the rest of the small staff. They were all passionate participants in providing a vibe that is clearly outlined by the grounds and daily activities (The sacred circle, compost toilets, solar shower, edible gardens; and yoga, vegetarian meals, and permaculture classes). Since the Yoga Forrest is a 20 minute hike from town (and we chose the all-inclusive package with meals, yoga, and permaculture classes) we didn't leave the grounds during our 2-night stay. Our Cabana was clean and the bed was huge and comfortable. The loft in the Cabana was perfect for relaxing and taking in the spectaculars view of the lake and nearby volcanoes. Sunrise from our porch was breathtaking! The meals were delicious and provided opportunity to meet other guests. The Yoga Forrest is comparatively more expensive than the other accommodations on the lake. If I were to do it over I would pay for the room and services a la carte.
