Welcome to one of the most magical places on earth! This area in Colombia lies at the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas, and is known  for the famous Tayrona National Park. It's home to to the tallest mountain closest to the ocean and supports five lush rivers that run from the mountains to the sea. In this specific area the wildlife is abundant, hosting 20% of Colombia’s 1921 different bird species, the most in the world! Along with the thriving nature, the indigenous tribes of the land create a powerful and sacred experience unlike any other.

Throughout this retreat, we will immerse in the ancient wisdom of the Kogi people, who are considered protectors of the Earth. The Kogi’s will share their knowledge and lifestyle practices of how they aim to live in alignment with the planet and inspire us to do the same. For this reason we are humbly exciting to spend a week immersed on their land, learning about their cultural ways and connecting further to ourselves, based out of our magical home for the week, Gitana Del Mar.
