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.


My experience with Daniel in Catalina over the New Year's holiday was life-changing. Daniel made us feel at home right away, and the energy and beauty of the Sacred Valley is breathtaking. The lessons learned from my spiritual journey will keep giving for the rest of my life.
