Exotic retreats are probably the most versatile retreats you can think of. Well, considering that they are bookable all year long, without having to cave in on the weather.

With exotic retreats, we mean that these countries will take place around the equator. This is because most of these destinations have a very nice climate. These retreats will be warm, humid and sunny. The ideal combination for a yoga retreat.

And as I mentioned before, these retreats will be amazing to do all year round.

But that said, let’s take a little look at these 5 exotic yoga retreats.

And don’t worry, I won’t only be looking at the most favorite locations, I’ll also look at some places where you normally wouldn’t think of. But yet again, they will be amazing to attend.

#1 yoga, Meditation and shamanic retreat Peru

Naturalia Retreat Center
Prices start from US$ 790
Multiple Dates Available

This is not just your ordinary yoga retreat. If you ever dreamt about staying in the amazon overnight, this is the place to be. This center is not just in the heart of the forest, your cabin will be too. 

The retreat you’ll be going to might look a bit basic, but it sure isn’t. You’ll be having your own private cabin. And even without all the amenities some people would wish for, it’s like a little dream to stay here.

But you’re not just here for the stay you’ll be getting. You are also looking for some deeper soul-searching.

And where to begin?

Oh yeah, let’s start with some yoga. Every day you’ll be getting at least one yoga session. Your yoga instructor will be Gonzalo, who has more than ten year of experience.

Other than that, there will be some other workshops as well. There will be a shaman that you might ask some questions. And you’ll be doing some creative work as well. This will all be with natural pigments.

Afterwards this painting will get a energy reading.

If this has you written all over it, then go ahead! Read no more!

But there are four more retreats we’ll be talking about so you can scroll down too if you want.

#2 plants, yoga and surf retreat in Ecuador

Vikara
Prices start from US$ 2,200
Multiple Dates Available

Alright, this one might look a bit more luxurious. But this won’t say that it’s going to be a relaxed retreat.

At this retreat you’ll be working on yourself! So, this one will be amazing for those who are looking for some intense soul-searching.

It’s also not just your average yoga retreat. At this center you’ll be participating in Ayahuasca ceremonies.

I haven’t experienced these myself yet, so I’m not going to mention too much about it.

Not that much into substance-use? You can also create your own retreat by paying a basic price and adding your own preferable activities.

So, it’s up to you what kind of retreat you are looking for.
