"It's hard to describe an experience like the one I had at Bromelia. I left the states to take a break from our backwards fast-paced society, heal physically and emotionally, relax, recharge and reconnect with nature. I never anticipated to have such a beautiful and profound experience and feel extremely blessed and honored to have worked with Tito and Johnathan, the Shaman at Bromelia. If you are looking to heal, find passion and purpose in your life again then Bromelia and the loving people who work there offer powerful tools to guide you on your journey. I stayed for 40 days and was able to experience the healing of reiki and the sacred shamanic ceremonies. It was both life changing and life saving for me. The property is beyond beautiful, the food is fresh and healthy, the beach is close and Tito is an amazing host and friend. Ecuador is a special place and I cannot think of a better way to experience it than at Bromelia. You won't be disappointed and you will likely be amazed at the beauty of what Bromelia has to offer if you really let it. Tito offers reiki classes so you can learn to give reiki treatments after you leave. I cannot recommend this enough as I have already seen it touch the lives of those around me in a short time. Take advantage of all Bromelia has to offer. It is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself".
I often refer to Montanita Ecuador as the party place of the planet Earth, I love it there.
Setting my bias aside, I discovered and ever more wonderful place and reason to spend as much time as I can there. Bromelia Nature Lodge.
I have been the Sensei/head instructor of the healing arts and martial arts center, The BushidoKan Temple for 44 years. I have often dreamed of having such a complete facility as is offered by this wonderful lodge, and I must add in such a magical location.
I have known Tito Verdaguer for many years and can say he is of the highest levels of Service to others, Honor, Excellence and Integrity.
Every moment I spent at this lodge was magical and beyond words.
Thank You very much Tito for building my dream place and for you exceptional hospitality.
