Colombia never got a great name, which is a shame because there is so much beauty in the country. In most guides, they’ll be warning you about all the dangers that you can find in this country. We won’t be focusing on that of course, and we’ll have a bit of a look at the bright side. The beauty of these yoga retreats that we’ll talk about is that you might be able to travel with companions to the destination.
Silent meditation and yoga in medellin
La Casa de Loto
Prices start at US$ 660
Various Dates Available
7 Days and 6 Nights
If you’d like to be more in silence, then this is really the place for you! This retreat is actually perfect for those who’d like to practice silence, but not the entire time. There are silent meditations like vipassana included in the timetable, but you don’t have to be silent the entire time.
And if you think it will be hard, don’t worry too hard and give it to your meditation and yoga practice. The location also really accommodates the silence as well and there is a lot of space to make sure you don’t run into your co-participants.
The location is absolutely amazing. There are cabins for you to stay on the land and they are really stunning. All meals are included and if you want you can also order a transfer from the airport of Medellin for a small fee.

This retreat center is a bit different. There are actually a couple of different retreats that they offer in Colombia.
Therefore I actually should look at them a bit differently. Although, I can say that there is one common factor and that’s the fact that they always offer ceremonies during their retreats.
That said, there’s one where you can actually participate in an ayahuasca ceremony. Which isn’t for just anyone. However, that’s mildly said of course.
The others are also mind-blowing but in a different and softer way.
The center itself is something else. The architecture is really stunning here. With different cabins and the beach nearby. You have the forest and the ocean at a couple of feet away from you!
If you like the center itself, they actually have more retreats available in different locations. I can’t promote them here as we are talking about yoga retreats in Colombia.
Coffee farm yoga retreat in quindio
Prices start from US$ 1000
October 10th 2023
6 days and 5 nights
When you think Colombia you also think coffee. And as everyone has had a cup of coffee at least once in their life, we can assume that you might have had Colombian coffee beans. Here you can get the full experience.
This retreat gives you more freedom to do what you feel like. There are a lot of tours that you can take if you feel like it, or you can just stay at home to rest and relax.
The yoga part is a bit smaller as there is just yoga in the morning. But this might just be great for you if you don’t want to spend all your time doing yoga or meditation all day.
And to be honest, we all need also just a moment to unwind and relax. So once a day might be enough if you just need a holiday!

Spanish speaking yoga retreats
Akasha Yoga Center
Prices start from US$ 344
Various retreats available
4 days and 3 nights
This yoga center is for those who mastered the Spanish language, or are even just learning it. Or maybe even for those who don’t.
However, these retreats are only available in Spanish. But no worries because if you want you can also take a teacher training course. And these are given in English.
Don’t let that stop you though. This center is absolutely amazing. They have a couple of really great options available. They have a retreat with intuitive cooking, they have one with a cocoa ceremony and more!
Healing Reterat in La Guajira
Prices start from US$ 1469
Various Dates Available
7 Days and 6 Nights
Personally this retreat for me is the most beautiful but also most confrontational one. During this trip you’ll be receiving two ayahuasca ceremonies, resulting in a very deep going journey into the depths of yourself.
The center itself looks absolutely stunning, which also makes sense as it’s the most expensive one in this list. There are a lot of facilities available to accommodate your wishes.
The ceremonies are executed by a true Colombian Shaman. Which can’t get more authentic. And to prove they really take care of everything, there is even medical help available whenever needed.
