      If you're a yoga enthusiast, or game to give it a try, it would be hard to imagine a better place to indulge yourself than The Yoga Forest. Teachers from all over the world guide students of all levels in yoga workouts in a lush rustic setting with a sweeping view of beautiful Lake Atitlan. While you can drop in for a single session any day at 8:00 a.m. or 3:00 p.m., the center specializes in offering residencies of one day to one month, with participants lodging on the premises. There's also an on-site restaurant. Wi-fi is available for an additional fee, but one of the appealing things about this retreat is that it offers you a chance to practice a mind-body discipline while getting away from everything except nature at its finest.

      If you go:
      Note that coordinates stated are approximate. The retreat is located on an isolated path up into the hills. You can arrange an escort to get you there, or you can follow the markers, which can be a little confusing. But you'll likely pass locals on the trail who can point the way. The Yoga Forest website also has a detailed map of the path.
