The Inspiration

Catalina is a private boutique center designed for retreats created and delivered by Daniel Gutierrez and private groups from around the world. We are nestled in the Andes mountains on about 5.2 hectares (14 acres) in San Salvador, Peru in the Sacred Valley of Incas.

“Catalina is a retreat center named after my mother. The center embodies the same attributes I experienced in my mother, of love, peace, and tranquility.” - Daniel Gutierrez, owner/director

Our center is a place dedicated to radical mindfulness, deep transmutation, contemplation, and reflection. We currently offer accommodations for 10 - 15, in private rooms with ensuite bathrooms.

"Radical Mindfulness Is Not Only Being Aware And Present But Being So Present That You Are Monitoring Your Thoughts On A Moment By Moment Basis And Redirecting Your Actions Toward Your Current Intentions Followed By Commitment.” DG


Peru is a unique South American country with a diverse and vibrant living spiritual tradition. It is a bioenergetic center of great magnetic power that possesses a powerful healing effect and provides the visitor strength of mind. Supernatural and spirituality are also reflected in the divine Peruvian nature. The Old Peruvians cherished a divine respect towards the mountains, water, and earth. The people of this land are generous and open in the sharing of their spiritual knowledge, experience, and connection.


I am currently spending a week at the amazing Catalina Retreat in Pisac, Peru. Daniel Gutierrez is the most incredible host and I have been so nurtured and cared for not only by Daniel and his staff but also by the love and energy if the surrounding Andes Mountains. Majestic mountains surround the property and I feel so cradled by the Sacred Valley. I’m in love with the little town of Pisac, the locals, and the food is beyond delicious.
