I am hosting my first retreat in Palomino, Colombia. Why? Because it is a hidden gem, I went there around two years ago, and it was a place for me that was super special. I need to share it with my yoga students, and you should do too. One of my favorite places of Colombia.
I don't remember how I discover this town. I do remember searching for Tayrona and Sierra Nevada when I started my adventure, and with all the google and pins I searched I found this hidden gem. I remember reading an article from a girl from CN Traveler. Once you get there, you feel the calmness and just the friendliness of the culture. Everything is so chill that it gives you that hippie vibe.
We rented a car, my friends and I, and the feeling we got there was so pure and clean that it's something you need to experience.
Here are some reasons I am making my next retreat in Palomino, Colombia.
