Nature-based retreats for leaders on a mission


Empowering leaders to lead with a profound sense of purpose, and teams to collaborate as a harmonious force. We leverage the transformative power of the natural world, teach conscious communication skills and provide a safe space for executive leadership development, unparalleled team building, and self-care.


Casa Alternavida is a boutique wellness retreat center located in Puerto Rico offering high-touchpoint, guided retreat experiences for curious, growth-minded executives, leaders and groups.



Our approach is to get people out of their heads and into their body, a vast and commonly untapped intelligence that can bring deep insight and guidance. We teach optimal wellbeing and conscious communication techniques while leveraging nature as a metaphor for sustainable business concepts. This supports mindset shifts that give leaders an opportunity to reconnect to their essential self and lead authentically with less stress, overwhelm and anxiety.

My inspiration in designing and building Casa Alternavida was to create a safe space for leaders to get away, regroup, and explore life challenges with the support of high quality practitioners and amazing food. After a career burnout resulting in a near death experience in 2012, I realized many people could use a solution like this.


After 10 years of facilitating retreats and renting other facilities on the island and around the world I learned a lot. Our guests consistently share how much they love our authentic, personalized approach and the high level of intention and care they experience from the space and all of our team members. We take pride in the magical moments that happen. Our team of passionate Boricua’s (locals) will likely warm your heart as they have mine. Since this is also my home, they have become family to me. You will have the gift of getting to know this beautiful island through them and become part of our family. 


Our all-inclusive, customized wellness retreats help you strengthen your connection to yourself, your team and nature. We create the optimal environment for learning and growth.

Move Daily

Our morning ritual is a rooftop, sunrise movement class while overlooking the national rainforest followed by a morning nature adventure and afternoon beach walk/swim.

Breathe Deeply

We provide reminders to assist with deep, intentional belly breathing as a nervous system reset practice.
