The Gitana Del Mar Beach Resort:
Welcome to the home of our Colombia Retreat. The Gitana Del Mar Beach Resort is located at the base of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta mountains alongside of the Caribbean sea. It's lush land harbors a retreat oasis of pure jungle and ocean bliss. Gitana Del Mar is comprised of 7 eco-friendly jungle style bungalows. Each with high ceilings, ceiling fans, an ocean breeze and it's own private outdoor shower.
This eco-chic boutique resort is small and cozy and privately rented out to our retreat for the duration of the week to keep the retreat intimate. We are in the jungle with a 3 minute path walking out to the vast, infinite, Caribbean sea. There is also a pool oasis in the Resort center for us to enjoy, close to it's open air restaurant hut.
Gitana Del Mar's staff has become apart of the Lotus Retreats family. As our flagship retreat, we host 3 retreats at Gitana a year and their staff is a huge part of our retreat experience!
