"Thank you so much for creating such a perfect, welcoming and healing place in such a beautiful location. The perfect inspiration for our entire trip. You changed my life for the better and I will never forget this experience." Beth
"Monte Vista is exactly what you are looking for if you need not just a break from your busy everyday life, but a change from the hipster scene at some big yoga retreats. This is a retreat center that lives up to the word "retreat." Kim
"Come with an open mind, an open heart and knowing that you will spend a lot of time on your own thinking and learning that you don't need to be surrounded by people and noise in order to have a good time, and you will have a holiday that will not only send you home with a healthier body but also with a healthier, happier outlook on your life and the world generally. " Katherine
"Monte Vista has a real community feel. The guests, volunteers, interns and staff all get to know each other and it ended up feeling like one big family living in the jungle." Samantha
"I loved my little bungalow.... I especially loved the hammock and spent many early morning hours swaying in it! These bungalows are very simple accommodations, so know that
before going in.....I also enjoyed the other people staying there and the friendly casual atmosphere.
I know I'll be back, it's that special a place!" Cynthia
"I would highly recommend Monte Vista to ANYONE! The staff and the surroundings made it so easy to feel at home… If your home over looks breathtaking views by the way. A friend and I took part in one of the Holistic Vacation Packages (Very affordable to any backpacker!) ; the relaxing, beneficial treatments, fresh, delicious meals, friendly staff, comfortable quarters, and everything else it had to offer was more than amazing! It was my first experience with Meditation and Yoga, and they did a great job of applying to all different levels. I know I plan to go again, maybe even volunteer!" M. Braaten
"A visit to Monte Vista is absolutely, unquestionably worthwhile. It is the perfect place to escape to when life gets too busy or too stressful. If you are just looking to chill out there are beautiful views surrounding the centre, the beach is near by & the meals provided are absolutely delicious." Alexandra

It takes a few days just to let go. We do also offer 3 or 5 days to suit people with a busy schedule. You can also extend one of these program times on a daily basis adding on whichever therapies and treatments you desire.

Cleansing and fasting gives our body a break from the toxins we regularly ingest. The impurities we breathe in the air. The environments that we move through and live in. And the psychological stress that builds up within our bodies due to busy lifestyles, poor eating habits, and processed foods that have now become staples of modern life.
