Once you’ve reserved space, we will help you prepare for your retreat with our Welcome Kits. We can organize your ground transportation and activities including tours of local villages, Mayan fire ceremonies, a fair-trade market with local artists and spa treatments. We can even help you register your students for an additional charge.

Villa Sumaya partners with group leaders by:

  • posting your retreat on our website
  • highlighting your retreat in our newsletter
  • listing our center with online directories
  • posting your retreat on our social media platforms
  • inviting you to write a guest post for our blog

Our efforts to become an ecologically-sustainable center further enhance your experience. We have a solar hot tub and solar-assisted hot water for your rooms; vegetable and herb gardens; an organic composting and recycling program; as well as a fruit orchard and a food forest with vegetables and medicinal herbs.
