Shambalanté is a retreat center that promotes wellness, so it is a safe space. However, to be immersed in the jungle involves some risks; therefore we encourage you to take the necessary precautions to ensure your well-being and that of your group.

In the facilities we have a basic first aid kit. In case of emergency you would go to the nearest medical center.

As for privacy, we have two areas (Main and Henequén) with shared showers and toilets, where you can experience our environmentally friendly dry toilets, while enjoying an open view of the sky. For everyone’s comfort, we also have traditional toilets.
