About The Yoga Forest & Lake Atitlán:
Lake Atitlán, the deepest lake in Central America, is tucked between 3 volcanoes and holds rich Mayan history and mystical energy. Don't worry - these volcanoes have not erupted since the 1800's, and remain dormant. Atitlán is known for its vibrant and colorful Mayan culture. Around the lake you can find 13 towns, each with their own unique essence and offerings.
The Yoga Forest is a sacred sanctuary on Lake Atitlán with ancient Mayan altars and natural springs that have been protected as a natural reserve in order to honor the land and the heritage of its people. San Marcos la Laguna is a small Mayan village on Lake Atitlán in the western highlands of Guatemala. It has become a Mecca for international travelers attracted by its beauty, tranquility and diverse options for spiritual exploration and therapy. Terraced into the side of a cliff, here we can enjoy the peace and tranquility of mountains looking out over Lake Atitlán towards volcanoes San Pedro, Toliman and Atitlán. Offering a unique retreat space within a tropical forest with amazing views, comfortable beds, and delicious vegetarian meals.
