Where the sea, the Sierra Nevada and the ancestral wisdom come together
Palomino, Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta
16th to 19th of September
The Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta is a unique place with an exuberant biodiversity, a great cultural richness and landscapes that will take your breath away.
We invite you to continue exploring and enjoying the beauty of the Sierra Nevada and the power of its sacred places. Join us and live an experience of deep rest, renewal and connection with nature and with the ancestral cultures that inhabit this magical place.
It will be 5 days during which we will have time to rest on the beach, enjoy the refreshing breeze of the Caribbean Sea rocking in a hammock, bathe in rivers of crystal clear water that come down from the mountains of the Sierra Nevada, and visit in the Tayrona National Park accompanied by the Kogui Mamos, a sanctuary of biodiversity, archaeological remains and paradisiacal beaches. We will trek ecological trails of tropical rainforest until we reach the sacred site of Chayrama, an ancient settlement of the Tayrona culture, where we will perform ceremonies with the mamos, connect with the energy of the site and a do deep energy work.
The retreat begins on September 16th. The group will be picked up at 7 AM in the city of
Valledupar (address to be announced) and taken by bus to the town of Palomino in the state of La Guajira.
The retreat ends on September 19th at 10AM. The group will be taken by bus to the city of Santa Marta and people can choose to stay there for a couple of days and enjoy the Colonial City Center (recommended) or take their flight back to Bogotá right away.
