My husband and I stayed at Willka T'ika in May of 2009. We absolutely adored the place. The gardens are magnificent and we would spend much of our time soaking up the beauty. We were lucky enough to be there while Carol was there and to be able to have her walk us through the gardens providing us with many teachings on the various chakras, the peruvian culture, the horticulture and the history of the place which I found quite fascinating. The food was incredible and the staff was extremely accommodating, lovely and helpful. I highly recommend this place.
