Willka T'ika Reviews

WOW!!! There are no words to describe the energy & beauty of this place is amazing–to the eye, feel & smell.  All of the property is a 10!  The staff go above & beyond their duty, they are always there for you, no matter what you need.

Carol it was a pleasure to meet you & your son, Terry!  Thank you ever so much for the best vacation ever.  I must say I have never met such a remarkable tour guide as Silverio.

Many blessings to you all and for the many I also received!

Claire Massicote, Canada, December 2019

Willka T’ika is a paradise that allows you to slip into the Peruvian culture with a deep ahhh! The gardens, the staff and the owner Carol Cumes are exquisite like the unexplainable walls of Machu Picchu. It feels so right to stay in a guesthouse retreat that supports the local community, that promotes organic sustainable farming and that nourishes its guests with the wisdom of Peru. Thank you.

Rodney , YeeYoga Teacher Oakland, California

This place is truly magical! The staff creates a feeling of being home. The land, the people, the sacredness of this country, is so incredible that words cannot convey. I look forward to bringing more groups of people to this special place – Willka T’ika.

Paulette Dwyer, Westlake Yoga Studio Los Angeles, California

I have traveled the world and seen many fascinating places, and Willka T’ika is the one I plan to return to again and again. The gardens are exquisite, the food is brimming with vitality and the location is conducive to experiencing the ancient essence. Our warm-hearted hosts, Carol and Mark, have created an atmosphere of beauty and tranquility. Together with the very loving indigenous people of Peru, they have handcrafted an ideal and nurturing retreat. The combination of a daily Yoga practice, meditation in the gardens and hiking in the Andes re-connects us with the Earth. If you visit Willka T’ika you will experience the heart and soul of Peru.
