About this trip

This wellness retreat was lovingly created and curated to assist participants to clear out old programming and outdated paradigms that keep us stuck in old stories while simultaneously ushering in new mindsets and methodologies to rescript your life! To cultivate greater cultural awareness and appreciation for ancient Mayan sites, we will be experiencing amazing Mayan ruins from Tikal to Yaxhá Nakum Naranjo National Park.

Rescripting Your Life is a Self Mastery International retreat open to individuals, couples and small groups of friends longing for a transformative, ecologically conscious, culturally rich experience. 

Designed to inspire a sense of curiosity and exploration with a bias towards design thinking, we will map out a path much like an inventor would design a lightbulb or create a rocket, by utilizing different mindsets and tools to think outside the box. Designers build their way forward with innovative strategies to practically address current life challenges, much like the ancestors of Mayan cities designed aquifers, roads and temples in the jungle.

We have partnered with Sumak Travel to design a journey through some of Guatemala's top attractions to experience a great mix of archaeology, adventure, nature, relaxation, education, healing and renewal. You will visit wonders and unique ecosystems in the magnificent Maya Biosphere Reserve, a unique place where history, archaeology, living culture, and nature converge. It provides an unspoiled space for transformational experiences.

This unique retreat is meant to deepen self-awareness and create a bridge between human beings from different backgrounds. The experiences in this regenerative journey provide spaces and opportunities for both travelers and indigenous communities to share their narratives and get to know each other. Through storytelling and cultural immersion, we will create a space for healing, reflection and empowerment, while embracing Maya culture and spirituality.

This 9-day wellness retreat features yoga, meditation, transformational workshops and other healing activities to enlighten your soul. Come forge new connections with other like-minded people and create lifelong bonds that deepen over time!

This retreat is now fully booked. If you are interested in our retreats in other Latin American countries, please make sure you subscribe to our newsletter:

Social enterprise specializing in sustainable tourism to Latin America. Tailor-made itineraries for discerning travelers wanting to connect with nature and local people. We are based in Costa Rica.


Hello, We had a great time on our trip. Daniel is an excellent driver and his English ability is great. He was able to help us frequently with local interactions and is very knowledge about local history and culture. The various types of farms we found enjoyable. The farm we stayed at the first two days was nice because it was decent accommodations while still being immersive. For learning, the two places we visited on the last day were the most educational. Probably more information than most people are willing to experience but perfect for us. The lady translator assigned to us for the few days of tours was helpful but not necessary since Daniel would have been able to translate. Your team was helpful in coordinating things and setup was better than expected.

The trip was well organised and ran very smoothly. The Costa Rican people are very friendly and we were warmly welcomed at every place we visited. The local guides for the trips were essential. The natural environment is wonderful but you need to know where to look in order to see the best of it and to understand what you are looking at. We chose to stay 2 or 3 nights at each location and this allowed us to mostly do our trips in the mornings with the afternoons and evenings to relax. We hired a car after a week. It was a tough 4 wheel drive car and proved necessary to cope with some of the roads which were very poor quality in places. The climate is warm and wet and can be quite variable. At altitude at our first stop we needed warm clothes at night and a hot water bottle. At sea level the weather was much warmer. In the rain and cloud forests we needed waterproofs. We were well looked after and felt safe throughout. To get the best out of the natural world a certain level of fitness is required. In summary it is a glorious country with warm friendly people, a tropical climate and an abundance of nature.

We had a wonderful adventure and our agent, Felippe, matched our itinerary to our requirements exactly so we had a great variety of locations and trips and all the accommodation was authentic and locally owned. We were supported at every step of the way and Felippe was responsive and made helpful suggestions. We would happily use Sumak/Felippe again and would highly recommend them.

This was a fabulous adventure for us. We had a driver and tour guides the first 8 days and everything was all set up for us. We stayed in wonderful accommodations and were served breakfasts of our choice every morning. I highly recommend Sumak Travel.
By Jeanne Bowers for Natural Costa Rica Adventure - Bowers Family - January 2023 on Feb 11, 2023
Felipe at Sumak travel was outstanding in helping us with our travel plans, then following through with communications with us and our driver while we were in Costa Rica, to ensure that everything went as expected. He took the time to ask for, and understand our preferences, and offered different choices. We are so appreciative his effort and attention during the entire trip, including restaurant recommendations for lunches and dinners, and for making reservations for us at the last minute. Would highly recommend their services!

In March 2021 I attended a Women’s Empowerment Retreat with Lead Peggy Farmer! The experience was truly life changing. The entire weekend was organized perfectly from every healing exercise, meal, meditation, down time…. It was the perfect weekend to transform, connect and discover! Taking time out of day to day life to truly heal and be around such high vibrational beings that want the same healing outcomes as you is so magical!!! Couldn’t recommend one of these events enough 💖💖💜💜
