My girlfriend and I had a lovely 4-day stay in Leon’s jungle retreat! We booked at the last minute (the evening before we arrived), but Leon responded quickly to our pre-arrival questions. Leon’s place consists of a cluster of thatched-roof buildings, set among lovingly tended pathways and gardens, surrounded by forest. There are 3-4 guest houses of varying sizes, as well as a shared kitchen with a dining area, an outdoor dining area, a yoga/meditation space, and Leon’s own residence. When we arrived, Leon showed us around and gave us helpful advice and recommendations. We stayed in “Shakti”, which was the perfect size for a couple. We enjoyed lounging in the hammock on the screened-in porch, and the shower had abundant hot water and great pressure. Our room was clean and comfortable, with fresh towels every day and a cleaning every other day or so. While there were a few mosquitoes outside, our screens and windows ensured that we almost never found them inside, and the air conditioner did a great job of keeping the space cool and providing relief from the humidity. Due to the building style and its proximity to the forest, we shared our space with various critters: millipedes, grasshoppers, the occasional spider, a long-legged bug that we’d never seen before, and lizards who left the occasional dropping behind. But the net around our bed allowed us to sleep comfortably, and we awoke every morning to birds singing. For breakfast, Leon provided fresh fruit and excellent bread, and the kitchen had all of the basics needed to prepare food. We ate our breakfast in the outdoor dining area, where we could watch birds, iguanas, and the occasional snake going about their business among an amazing variety of plants and flowers. As other reviewers have noted, one of the things that makes Organic Yoga special is its connection to the surrounding jungle that, as Leon likes to say, is full of life. Leon himself is a generous host: we enjoyed chatting with him and some friends who happened to be staying with him, and he gave us great advice for restaurants and beaches. The beginners’ meditation/yoga course he gave us on our second morning—in Spanish and English—was a highlight of our stay. We also loved hanging out with his big, friendly dog, Venus. Overall, Leon has created a welcoming, relaxing, life-giving retreat in Organic Yoga, and we hope to come back and visit again soon.
