Respira tu AMor One-on-One Retreat

A Personalized and Intensive, One-on-One Retreat with Mariposa

A “Respira tu Amor” one-on-one retreat with Mariposa is designed to help you release all that has been holding you back and create a new sense of being anchored in truth, love, creativity, joy and power.

It’s a great honour for me  to guide you on this journey of deep inner work and transformation.

I hold a sacred place for all parts of you to be seen and integrated, from the most vulnerable and wounded to the most joyful and alive parts.

You are much more than what you experience in your daily life and we guide you into this journey of self-discovery to align your body, mind, heart and soul with the true essence of your being.


Many of us carry unconscious beliefs that no longer serve us and that influence our view about our self and the world around. You will be able to identify and release them so that you can manifest the life you truly want.

You will relax and enjoy the beauty of Playa Del Carmen , the treasure of Mexico , the beautiful Caribbean  beaches, sunsets, jungle, delicious healthy food, Maya Culture, and local amazing Mexican people.

Each retreat is tailored to what you need at a specific time through healing therapies, workshops, meeting the community, and free time.

The Magical Place You Will be Staying, Portal Xibalba

SacBa, Playa del Carmen, Riviera Maya, Mexico

The architecture of the buildings is a faithful copy of nature. We capture the anatomical forms of the being, the auric proportions. We build with local materials. Precious woods cured and gifted by the jungle itself, without cutting it down or devastating it.

The energy is based on solar panels.

This place offers you an opportunity to exalt your senses, to harmonize your body and awaken your spirit.

Our place is a space where you will find peace and tranquility. The jungle is a magical place to reconnect with nature and forget about the noise of everyday life.


Beautiful organic space, ideal for resting and connecting with nature. It has a private bathroom and light from solar panels.

This is a unique house in the middle of the Mayan jungle, built with local materials and respecting nature. It is surrounded by trees, trails and cenotes. It is a magical place to spend days in total contact with nature, to return to the origin and rediscover the beauty and magic of the jungle.


Wonderful experience of sleeping in the jungle in structures created with sacred geometry. It has light from solar panels and mosquito nets.

Our property has a total of 3 cenotes, 2 of them private and a cenote lagoon where you can relax, explore and merge with the water, one of the most sacred elements that exist.

What is a Cenote?

A Cenote refers to an underground chamber or cave which contains permanent water. In other words, it is a natural sinkhole where the ceiling of the cave has collapsed.

The cenotes were not only the main water supply for the Mayan people, they are also a sacred place that they believe act as a portal to the underworld, which is called XIBALBA.  Because of this, the Mayan people often used the cenotes to make sacrifices and perform rituals.

These days they do still perform secret ceremonies in the cenotes, just not the sacrifices!

Add an Ancestral Medicine to Your Experience

This is optional with additional cost. 

Bufo Alvarius

Bufo Alvarius

Also called the God molecule, this substance is only found in one of the 463 varieties of toad that exist in the world. The Bufo Alvarius is extracted from its parotid glands, the shamans smoke it crystallized during rituals and ancestral ceremonies for purposes curative and for its hallucinogenic qualities.

The glands of the Bufo Alvarius Toad produce a latex called Bufotein. It should be noted that the toad does not receive any damage. That latex is extracted from their glands and dried. The “medicine” is inhaled in a sacred ceremony. Once inside, the body transforms it from “o-methyl-bufoteine” into 5meO-DMT. Making it easily absorbable and capable of crossing the blood barrier of the brain, reaching the brain instantly.

This very special molecule is activated in specific states such as birth, death and sleep. It breaks the chemical filters that the human mind uses to prevent a continuous state of perception, awakening and full awareness. These filters are necessary for our day to day, since they help us to function in this three-dimensional reality, limited by space and time.



The temazcal is a steam bath that has been used extensively in Mesoamerica for millennia, for therapeutic, hygienic and ritual purposes. The word “temazcal“ comes from the Nahuatl temazcalli and means “steam house” (temaz – steam, calli – house). Heat, steam and sweat bring about a body purification well known to ancient cultures.

In the tradition of the temazcal, this purification is not limited to the body but also encompasses the spiritual. The symbolism of the temazcal structure and oral tradition reflect the connection between body, spirit, and nature.

In itself, the temazcal represents the land that gives us life and sustains us. When one enters the temazcal, it is said that one is entering the womb of Mother Earth and that is why the temazcal has the shape of a dome.

Due to its curative characteristics, it is an effective method to stimulate all internal organs, cleaning our body, sweating large amounts of toxins accumulated by medications or by our own diet, since we currently face many problems of contamination


Cacao Ceremony

Cacao ceremonies have actually been around for thousands of years, originating all the way back to Mayan and Aztec traditions in Central and South America, used for spiritual, medicinal and ceremonial purposes for inner awakening and creative guidance. Pure cacao is used as a heart opening medicine for people to safely experience awakening, revelation and inner healing.

Cacao is used in a sacred medicinal ritual, where intentions are set and once consumed, euphoric states are unlocked, negative emotions are released and we are able to connect to ourselves and the loving energy in our body.



Mambe is a powder obtained from roasting, grinding and sifting the Amazonian coca leaves, generally mixing them with cecropia or yarumo ashes. it is combined with a tobacco paste called ambil and with this combination in their mouth (they chew it until it disappears), the indigenous people gather around the fire in a circle of words to talk and make decisions about their community.

The natives attribute special properties and infinite wisdom to it, since they consider the coca leaf as an ancient grandmother who has accompanied them since the beginning of time, giving strength and clarity to their thoughts.

In addition to containing all the medicinal properties of the coca leaf, a sacred plant.

For the indigenous peoples of South America, coca is a mother, a sacred plant that nourishes and gives life, a medicine that heals body and spirit, and in this way we must also treat it. Because when it is used for other purposes, when the use of medicinal plants is decontextualized, then they lose all their benefits and can be harmful.



Rapé is a sacred medicine, which honors the relationship between tribal men with the tobacco grandfather.

It is prepared using various combinations of tobacco, medicinal plants, jungle tree bark and / or tree ashes. After successive grinding and sieving, a subtle and fine powder is obtained.

The Rapé is blown with a bamboo, in each nostril. Upon receiving the medicine, the Rapé rises, cleaning, ordering and aligning our energy field. It clarifies our perception, clears the mind and helps us connect with the energy of the Universe.

The presence of Grandfather Tobacco in the medicine circle helps us to travel, and makes it easier for us to learn about plants. With love, he gives us healing, shows us paths and leads us to connect with our inner strength. Communicate our intentions to the Great Spirit and in community, it strengthens us as a family, synchronizing us with the energy of Mother Nature

Mariposa (Cristina Alcalde)

Meet Your Facilitator

In 2017, Mariposa got her first 200-hour yoga certification and became a teacher. This led her to discover the studies of tantra and breathwork in Ko Phangan, Thailand. It was through breathwork that she realized she could access DMT, “the spirit molecule,” without plants and no longer needed them.

During her first breathwork experience, she was visited by the spirit of Prana, who opened her wings and bestowed her with her spiritual name: Mariposa.

This was a true breakthrough and now she desires to bring these practices and this knowledge to the world.

What Others are Saying About Personalized, Intensive One-on-One Retreat with Mariposa.


Playa del Carmen, MX

Mariposa your authenticity and ability to create exactly what we needed is unmatched. I am eternally grateful for this experience with you. Thank you for everything.
Mariposa is a skilled and professional guide who helped us embark on what we hope will be a long journey of growth and deepening love. She made us both feel comfortable as we dealt with the challenges of our relationship. We definitely see how the variety of tools she introduced us to will serve us well if we continue to do the work. We would like to do another retreat with her, although in a location with a few more creature comforts since neither of us are as spry and nimble as we were in our 40s.

I took a leap of faith, followed my intuition, and attended the metamorphosis retreat with Mariposa in September 2022. To say it was a life changing experience would be an understatement.
Coming from another country, I was naturally hesitant to let my gaurd down and allow a stranger to facilitate such a deeply personal spiritual journey…
But from our very first communications I was able to feel her loving and nurturing energy in a way that confirmed I was in the best of hands.
She, lead by her heart and inner wisdom, planned out and personalized each moment of my journey to best meet my needs in healing and coming home to myself.
Meeting her in person was like finding a sister I never knew I had – and she poured her heart and love into my journey for the entirety of the retreat.
Mariposa is a true depiction of following your soul’s purpose. She’s doing exactly what she was made for in hosting these retreats and guiding people into a life of alignment. I have so much love and gratitude for her and will always consider her a soul sister.
To someone considering a retreat, training, or service she offers as part of their healing path – DO IT! You will be forever changed in the best of ways. ❤️

Mariposa is one of the most beautiful soul I have ever met in my life. She genuinely loves serving and creating a sacred space for you to dive deep into your own healing.

Her breath work and tantric practices took me in a journey of self discovery where all I needed to pack was my open mind, heart and real desire to change my life.” – Maye
