About Shambhala Guesthouse

Imagine a far-off place
Somewhere in time
Where smiles warm
Like the rays of sunshine,
Together in a common dream,
Enjoying nature in all its splendor
Or simply sunbathing away the hours
In an enchanted setting.
A place where the pace you set
Is your own
And where there are no strangers.

Our Shambhala was found
In a hidden place way down deep
In southern Mexico.
Zipolite is its common name.
The Zapotec natives believe
That it's an area where one can
Surrender oneself to nature's forces
And be born again.
The breath of the great wind,
The never ending stars
Open you up.
Let yourself go.

Amor y Paz,
