Erin from

I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed taking classes from you while doing the honeymoon thing in Gigante. Your classes were very inspiring and brought me a lot of joy and relief from my chronic back pain.

Thank you for such an amazing week! It was awesome and gave me soooo much more than I ever expected! Your food was fantastic, I feel great… Pretty sure I’ll be back in Gigante, it is a magical place! – Whitney, IL

I highly recommend Papayawellness retreats. Carly and India are excellent hosts who enthusiastically catered to my every whim in designing a retreat schedule of activities, adventure, culture, cuisine, philanthropy and relaxation. The accommodations at Casa Swell are comfortable and clean.
