As soon as you enter the grounds of Aya Huma you will feel her peaceful and positive vibes creep into your being. It is one of those places where you can breath again and return to the core of yourself. Your senses will be opened to the wonders of this hostel. The holy flowers that grow all over her grounds, wall paintings on posts and walls, the little stream that quietly flows through the centre of the property; and that's just a little selection of the wonders of Aya Huma. It is just beautiful to see how much love, time and thought is put into the creation of this unique place.
Another great feature of the hostel is the opportunity it offers travellers to dive into local traditional culture and spirituality, i.e. reiki and massage sessions, and temazkal and pacha manka ceremonies. Owner Mique was happy to assist me in any of my requests in this area.
Aya Huma is in short a magical place with a great energy where you will find yourself wanting to stay longer than you planned beforehand.
