Soulful Cacao and Geotourism Adventure Retreat.

A Pilgrimage to the Puuc Route: Journeying through Ancient Maya Culture.

Reconnect with Your Authentic Self, Awaken Your Heart, and Savor the Journey of a Traditional Cacao Ceremony in Uxmal and the Puuc Route. Learn in the land of the Mayas, who adored nature and sought to live in total harmony.

Breathe in Serenity and Exhale Adventure, Blending with Echoes of Ancestry.


Join Gabriela Rocha Caballero, founder of COVOLV, on an unforgettable journey to the Archaeological Site of Uxmal, a UNESCO World Heritage site.



Inside your hot chocolate or cacao milkshake lies a tradition rich with culture. A cup of ceremonial cacao shared with friends and good conversation guides you to find inner peace and connect with a higher consciousness. Cacao, in particular, impacts our brain's blood flow by widening the blood vessels, allowing more blood and oxygen to reach the brain. This boosts brain health, cognitive function, and attention. A cup of traditional ancestral ceremonial cacao takes us on a journey of happiness. It nourishes your body and soul, providing physical health, invigoration, and spiritual and emotional benefits.

  • After your first cup of ceremonial cacao, you will immediately open your heart, set new year resolutions and trip intentions, and embrace the serene pre-Hispanic magic of this Maya route town. All of these elements will guide you to dive inside your heart and truly listen.

  • This pilgrimage of the soul, set in a lodge located only a few steps from Uxmal, invites you to disconnect and reconnect with nature, embrace togetherness, and delve into the rich heritage of the ancestral Mayan cultures.

  • Discover the essence of Mayan farming and adventure tourism while savoring tropical fruits.

  • Rest, journal, meditate, pray, chant, sleep, and swim while overlooking the top of the Magician Pyramid.

that nourishes both body and spirit.

“A retreat with Gabriela is a TREAT! I attended an intense facilitator’s training and spiritual retreat. That event could have been very difficult not only emotionally but physically as well, but because every detail was thought of and attended I was able to put my thoughts and energies where needed. It was a FIVE STAR week – not only transformative but fun filled. I felt cared for, nurtured and had a blast as well. I was especially grateful to have Gabriela just a phone call away when I missed my flight in Mexico City. Just knowing she was there made a stressful situation much easier. Everything from booking, working out all the logistics, traveling, tours, lodging, food, service and people on my retreat was amazing and YUMMY! Much Love Sister”.
