Monte Mariposa


Retreat Centre for Self-Realisation

Next Event:29th January - 3rd January Cultivating Peace and Power in Relationship with The Peace and Power Series  





Monte Mariposa is a Retreat Centre where people come together to learn, teach, experience, exchange and inspire others. 

We host courses, residential trainings, retreats and workshops, all based on human growth and understanding.

Monte Mariposa has a natural beauty and we offer a special environment for you that is inspiring, nourishing and enriching. 

We are not based on any particular philosophy or religious path and are open to all teachings that deepen and broaden our experience of ourselves and our world.




Occasionally we welcome small groups or individual guest that want to stay for a few days and have a restful break.

Vegetarian Food – Healthy Food

Alchemy of tastes with love and colour

At Monte Mariposa the food we offer is completely vegetarian. This diet is a wonderful way to create good health. Our meals are prepared with good quality local produce and offer a variety of compatible foods that are delicious and nourishing. 

We feel food is a key part of any personal process. 

All meals are prepared with love, according to the needs of each group and are presented as a buffet.


"Experience a healthy and nourishing way of living." 

Please take in to consideration:

- Clients with self-catering accommodation should not bring any meat or fish to cook.

- Monte Mariposa is a Retreat Centre where we don’t use Drugs and Alcohol. We feel that this attitude allows us to explore ourselves more deeply. 

We also kindly request: Please don’t bring animals. 

Thank You!
