It was a fabulous trip! Beautiful location. Yoga, food, activities, weather and accommodations were excellent. Would definitely go back.
The trip was absolutely incredible. The perfect blend of planned activities, optional ones, and down time. Suzanne's yoga classes were truly amazing and inspiring. Suzanne was also extremely attentive to detail and to each individual's needs as the retreat leader. I really enjoyed getting to know her and the other amazing yogis I met, I miss them all already. Villa Sumaya (and Lake Atitlan in general) is gorgeous and magical place to explore, and the food was always fresh and delicious.
This was one of the best trips I have ever been on, and I have traveled to almost 40 countries! Suzanne's yoga classes were great, the other ceremonies and activities helped us experience the local culture and sights, and the food was AMAZING! I want to go back.
Suzanne does her research and I always feel safe traveling with her. I appreciate that Suzanne plans/offers excursions and other activities in addition to yoga as I am an active person and cherish getting out to see the new culture/vibes that surround me.
We cannot describe this trip!!! Too many great memories to place into a description. Suzanne was absolutely phenomenal as a host, teacher and guide during our adventure to Guatemala. The location on Lake Atitlan at Villa Sumaya was one of a kind in the best ways possible. Everyone from staff to locals were incredibly hospitable and kind. We have been raving to our friends and family about this wonderful surprise of a trip. If you have the time take the trip, if you do not have the time make the time. It will be well worth it. Both my fiance and I left Guatemala with a sense of gratitude, joy and relaxation because of Suzanne and the wonderful people at Villa Sumaya. Take a chance with Suzanne and get out into the world! It will be well worth it!!
