Orilagba Retreat was established in 2017 in the tropical hills of Bayamon Sur, Puerto Rico, a Tropical Rain Forest region as a community center of healing, learning and spiritual empowerment consisting of an Òrìşà sacred grove, botanical medicinal and spiritual garden and various public and private meeting spaces. Our goal is to profoundly enrich the lives of every individual as well as those within the local community and abroad.

Orilagba Retreat started via a test in worthiness, hope and faith in the òrìşà.  My mother had just passed and while mourning her passing, I was managing her estate while searching for my next move.   During this profound healing and soul-searching process, I reconnected with my life purpose. Manifest within the core of my being, was a memory. The memory of my life goal, to build and establish a retreat to serve as a place for mind, body and soul healing, spiritual development, learning and holistically connecting with nature.  It is through this experience that I stumbled on the exquisite, yet badly dilapidated Orilagba mountain retreat. 
It is my dream to open up the property fully to the community, so everyone can experience profound spiritual enlightenment, healing, growth, and learning all withing the context of a beautiful lush and breathtaking tropical jungle paradise in the mountain. To do so, we need your help to implement necessary repairs.
