Imagine waking up to the birds chirping, opening your eyes to see and being immersed in the limitless views of the cobalt blue water of the lake, volcanos, colorful sunrise, and morning mist in the air.

Breathe in the freshness of the water, smell the flowers, plants and herbs in the gardens. Sitting on the patio or the lush gardens or by the water drinking your first cup of coffee, tea, or warm water.

Undisturbed, just you and the morning beauty and stillness. Slowing down and taking time to just be in the moments of pause.

Close your eyes and you can feel the cool breeze caressing your body, taking you into a peaceful, joyous, loving space of being.

You can feel the magic and mystical energy around you from the waters, mountains, land, beautiful local indigenous people, all around your surroundings.
