Beautiful place to be in contact with nature. However I wouln't recommend this place to those travelers looking for a retreat center experience because it´s not even if the called this place like that. Free food and so much abundance around. I hope the owners could give this place more love.

My experience at the Enchanted Forest was enjoyable and humbling. Jessica is very nice and has a pleasant place not far from the Beach. It is a good place to escape the city noise and get grounded. Jessica is very flexible and kind, yet, there is room for improvement in organization. I am very curious to see what this place grows to be and hope to visit again sometime in the future.

My experience at the Meditation Center has been incridible. I have been practicing my English, developing my abilities with Airbnb staffs, my criativity and mainly my physical and mental health. People are honest, great workers and flexible over time. Jessica is a great woman, honest, empathetic with people, good listener and is always helping me, helping people around her, big heart. This place takes the name of Enchanted Forest and everything is explained with the natural beauty of this place, of peace and a lot of love. Being in a forest at the top of a mountais is being a unique & magical
