"El Palomar" Retreat Center


Just an hour and a half from San Juan, Hacienda Verde has a rustic retreat center completely furnished and equipped to house up to 40 visitors. We rent it out for environmental education, students and professors, personal development activities, yoga workshops and other similar activities. It has several rooms with comfortable bunk beds, a kitchen and six bathrooms, a large open-air dining area and a dedicated "meditation room." Your group may bring provisions and supply the kitchen staff or we can provide these for you. The center faces a lush tropical landscape that fosters an atmosphere of peace and tranquility appropriate for yogic, meditative or other personal development practices. Best of all participants have access to the wonderful forest trails for walking or hiking. Also, from here they can visit the following nearby tourist attractions.
