      Fantastic trip to a wonderful place! Everything was stellar from the accommodations at Lomas de Tzununa (great staff, facilities, meals, location), transportation and logistics, excursions and hospitality. I want to especially recognize our local guides Alex and Grace, who made the entire experience memorable.

      This trip was wonderful. Jacki did an excellent job coordinating our days with fun and challenging itineraries. Alex and Grace were knowledgeable and kind and helped navigate the tours with expert care. I would recommend this retreat, and already have, to others.
