Over on the shores of Lake Atitlan, the small village of San Marcos has become known as a popular spot for wellness retreats. There is a distinct hippy feel to the village, and the Holistic Cottage is a top choice for relaxation. You can get reiki, kinesiology and creative energy work as well as massages, or study any of these disciplines with instructors.
Head to Antigua Guatemala to visit this renowned spa and massage centre. Reflexology is a focus, and there are other massages on offer as well as body peels and caffeine therapy. Shen is a day facility, so you’ll have to book accommodation elsewhere in Antigua.
