      About this trip

      Join us in the tucked away paradise of El Paredon, Guatemala for 5 nights, 6 days as we immerse ourselves in daily surf, yoga, adventure. We’ll spend our week adventuring the laid back Central American atmosphere, and awe-invoking volcanic black-sand beaches where you’ll have the chance to practice daily yoga, catch consistent waves, and relish beautiful sunsets.


      On this retreat, Jenny Clise and Milan Sundaresan will lead you through all the yoga and meditation to move your body and feed your soul. At our rustic boho retreat center, you can enjoy delicious fresh and locally sourced meals prepared by local chefs throughout the day. In addition to our scheduled activities and workshops, there will be plenty of free time to explore the village and beaches on your own. Enjoy journaling over a slow morning coffee, read in a hammock, let us organize a surf lesson for you, relax by the pool, go on a beach run, or take a nap. 


      During our time together, we will also explore the national park on a SUP tour down a beautiful mangrove lined river, and experience the local culture and cuisine through an authentic cooking experience at a local family’s kitchen in the cozy village of El, Paredon. You will also have the option to hike to Pacaya Volcano for sunset one day, replenish with a massage, or visit one of only seven sea-turtle feeding grounds in the world where turtles are present all year round to witness the baby sea turtles hatch and make their way safely to the ocean. Our Retreat will culminate with a beach bonfire where we will join together for a closing ceremony, and a night of fun under the stars.

      2. I've never travelled before and I don't have anyone to go with. Can I come alone?

      Yes!! Before you go, we are here to guide you and get you prepared as much as possible for this retreat and travel experience. With us, you're never alone! We set up a group chat to communicate with one week prior to the retreat to check in and update each other as you start your travel from where ever you may be. We'll pair you up with a roommate, who will most likely end up being a lifelong friend.  You may come alone, but you'll end up leaving with a community of like minded people who will forever be connected through this experience.

      30 days before your retreat, we'll send you a guide of what to pack and bring.

      Your insurance will need to cover emergency medical and trip cancellation/interruption. This is to protect you in case of any unforeseen circumstances either before or on your retreat. 


      5. Do you offer monthly payment plans?

      Yes! Once you've paid the deposit amount, the remainder of your balance can be split and paid by the remaining months left until the full balance is due.  For example, if the total retreat is $1,800 USD and you pay your $500 deposit in November - starting from December to June (7 months) you will pay a monthly fee of $186 USD.

      By Miriam C for Mind, Body & Soul: Hawaii with Eleonora Zampatti on Feb 10, 2024
      Had the most wonderful time! Eleonora is an amazing yoga teacher and host. In addition to yoga, we explored the island from the ocean seeing turtles and whales to the summit of Haleakala for a spectacular sunrise. Can't wait for the next yoga retreat with Eleonora and Adzenture.
      By GREG N for Mind, Body & Soul: Hawaii with Eleonora Zampatti on Feb 10, 2024
      Every year I look forward to adzenture retreats as a chance to explore new parts of the world, reset/relax, learn new skills, and connect with a community of supportive and positive new friends. Daniella and Eleanora thoughtfully curate really fun, active experiences that bring people together. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to practice yoga in beautiful settings and can’t wait for many more trips to come!

      We had an absolutely amazing time on this trip. Wonderful people, great food, and fantastic experiences. Highly recommend and will be going again! Loved every moment!
      By Rosemarie T for Quantum Manifestation: Costa Rica Yoga & Breathwork Retreat on Jan 30, 2024
      The Adzenture retreat in Guatemala exceeded my expectations. All of the activities were well-planned, and the location (Swell Guatemala) was a tropical paradise. The energy of the group was really open and welcoming. With two yoga classes a day, I learned some helpful tips to improve my vinyasa form and meet others who love yoga. Would recommend!
