About Villa Saas
Saas is located in the lush private community of Pueblo Sacbe, only 15 minutes from downtown Playa del Carmen. Sacbe is a natural jungle reserve, with beautiful freshwater cenotes, natural caves that are easy to explore and is an escape from the light and sound tourism noise of the nearby city center.
Sacbe, the community, is known as a ceremonial center and artist commune filled with long-time residents who are deeply invested in the preservation of the land.
The internet service in the jungle is spotty, at best. This, however, is a time for unplugging and communing with oneself. Therefore, we suggest limiting your use of your electronic devices during your stay.
Photo and Video Release
One of our goals is to provide women with a safe space to share, breathe and release. At various points during the retreat we will, film and/or photograph segments to commemorate this shared experience for use in future promotional and/or educational material. If you attend and participate, you are agreeing and giving permission to allow us to use the obtained footage.
