What. a. retreat. I am still processing my time in India, but traveling with Maria is hands down the best way to go. She has been so many times, and really plans out each day so well, it is organized so well that you are quickly able to settle in and enjoy. The hotel we stayed at was wonderful, they really took time to cater to our needs and their food was amazing! I told myself this was a once-in-a-lifetime trip but find myself already wondering when I can go again!
The trip was amazing! I can't say enough good things about our extraordinary guide who was always 3 steps ahead of us making sure that ever experience was perfect. The hotel and food were awesome. The excursions and events were well-planned, enjoyable, and educational. Meditation along side the Ganga at dawn, yoga practice in the beautiful yoga hall at the hotel, the spa treatments, the hiking, the cooking class, the visits to various temples, the excursion to Haridwar, evening Ganga Aarti, the visit to a rural school, and the Diwali celebration are just some of my favorite things about the trip. Everything was my favorite thing!
A brilliantly planned and orchestrated retreat, and one you'll want to repeat. Probe deep into the jungle, as well as your mind as you rise to the challenges this retreat presents. Experience of a lifetime!

Andrew and I had a wonderful time. The weather was amazing. Maria was very helpful with every aspect of our trip. The food was good, the people were gracias. The morning Yoga was especially helpful and refreshing.
My family and I had a wonderful experience in Costa Rica with Maria Garre. The local community is inviting and vibrant. Maria’s retreats are authentic, adventurous, inspiring and so much fun! We will certainly continue to explore more with her.
