La Calma

Maintain Harmony

La Calma was created with the aim to impact the local Mayan community and wild nature as little as possible. La Calma was built by hand without any help of electricity or heavy machinery. All work, from the development of the land to the final design details were made with the support of local Mayans.

100% Independent

La Calma is independent from the external environment. Electricity is generated from the solar energy using MPPT panels, water is pumped from boreholes. Everything used at La Calma is biodegradable, waste is filtered and cleaned in its own biodigestores. There is no undesirable waste, the house is fully self-sufficient and is in no way contaminating the land.

Design + Beauty

This was an amazing and beautiful trip! I felt that everything was perfect. The lodging was clean, natural, and serene. The yoga-shala, situated in the middle of the rainforest, was absolutely breathtaking. All the transportation worked out fine. The lodge staff were absolutely wonderful, fixing healthy, home-prepared meals every day from scratch! There were plenty of exciting things to do when we weren't practicing yoga. Trip Tribe certainly came through for me.

This trip was so magical. It was a beautiful blend of old and new friends. Our tribe was really amazing and we all expanded and grew in ways we could never imagine. My boyfriend proposed to me on top of the Coba Pyramid, needless to say this was a trip of a lifetime and I will never forget this adventure!

Pure magic! It was more fun than I had ever imagined. There was such a unique dynamic between the group and every person brought something special. I was truly amazed how everything came together. Every person showed patience when it was necessary, gratitude for the overall effort, and of course love through community. We started off the trip as strangers and by the end we were all one big tribe. So grateful for the experience.

This trip was Amazing!!!!! It was exciting, beautiful, fun, the food was delicious, and the trip overall was really smooth. Tulum and our whole group was amazing, but the success of this trip really came through the incredible leadership and organization of Tarin and Nic. Nic and Tarin put a lot of intention and love into the programming and variety of the trip, as well as making sure everyone felt included, had options to participate as much or as little as desired, and to provide feedback and involve themselves at will. Almost everyone in our group contributed something special, this was something that I think contributed to a unique and elevated group dynamic. The yoga classes were great, the hikes upon ancient Mayan temples, mayan sweat lodge, swimming in jungle caves springs (cenotés), hanging by the beach, and even trying to find the resort in the jungle was all really fun 😉. I would go on another trip with them in a heartbeat! Looking forward to the next one . Thank you!!!

This retreat was refreshing to my soul. I loved the locale, being in the jungle, on the beach and swimming in freshwater caves. Our guides Nic and Tarin did a phenomenal job of taking care of everyone and creating a community vibe. Tarin's yoga instruction, as always, was fluid and earthy, strong and subtle, an ever-satisfying moving meditation. In the early mornings, Nic and Tarin held a tea ceremony as silent meditation followed by Nic's words of wisdom, a dharma talk of 'Power Thoughts' which got us in the right intention for the day ahead. The place we stayed was lovely and original. I loved the vegetarian food they served us twice a day, though I would have enjoyed having simple snack options available between meals. While I like being out of my comfort zone, it was a little difficult to relax in our rooms, due to intense heat, humidity, and bugs that bite. I would suggest that the jungle resort get some fans for their guests. I would also recommend finding a way to close off the yoga deck from the bugs, as they made it difficult at times to stay focused on practice.

The #camilletribe Tulum trip was a deeply profound and incredible experience spiritually, physically and emotionally. Our trip leader, Camille Aragon, is an incredible soul with amazing talents and gifts that enabled an environment where everyone in our tribe learned to become closer to our best and highest selves.

The whole experience was wonderful. From yoga teacher Camille, who has gift of teaching not just yoga but being spiritual, being compassionate and reminded us to be at the moment and learn to love ourselves and others. To Svatka, Lucia and the helpers at the lodge who prepared healthier and delicious foods and their hospitality were so amazing. Ray the driver was great and patiently waiting for us wherever we went. Thanks to all of you. You made our yoga retreat unforgettable.

Great trip, the food was amazing. Everybody was nice. I wish we would have had more than 1 yoga class a day and the bed was inconfortable but other than that, I had a good time and I would recommand it, even go back myself!

Amazing. Sabrina was friendly, open minded, non judgmental - just what I needed. Her yoga classes were both spiritual in nature and very educational. I really enjoyed them. I would definitely go on another trip with Sabrina. I'd even try other ambassadors. I was treated with respect and dignity. The other participants were so wonderful as well. I feel as if I made true friends even though it was only one week. The bonds we made were undeniably amazing. Thank you so much Trip Tribe!!!

The trip was amazing, being in the middle of the jungle was peaceful and calm. Close enough to the beach for Raul to pick us up everyday and make stops along our way. The food Svodka made was incredibly delicious and healthy. La Calma was a beautiful place to stay, rustic and artsy, with good music, candles, incense, hammocks, setting the mood for true relaxation.

The trip to Tulum and my stay at La Calma was beyond my expectations. I can't remember being so relaxed. I've been back for almost two weeks and I'm still feeling the benefits.

Awesome trip, we had the BEST MEALS EVER on this trip, HUGE kudos to our caretaker and chef. The location was perfectly secluded from all the mainstream hotels and each room was unique and accommodating but a little hot for warned the rooms do not have fans...have mercy.

Absolutely incredible, would go back in a heartbeat. Gorgeous location, plenty to do in the area if you want but perfect atmosphere to stay and relax also. Meals were very good, plenty of food, although you only get breakfast and dinner so bring money for lunches. The only negative was the transfer when arriving at the airport. The meeting point was in the departures area and not easy to find, there was also no one waiting for me when I arrived. All sorted but could easily be avoided in future.

The yoga retreat nestled in the jungle was the perfect mix of relaxation and adventure. La Calma's location provided an off the beaten path experience, close to a couple local eateries, and the cenotes! Close enough to catch a ride into Tulum and the beaches. But far enough away to escape into the peaceful jungle. Food was amazing, rooms were cozy, on-site massage - huge bonus!
