Welcome to Alla Arriba
…in the heart of Argentina
Lush gardens, magnificent sunsets, a yoga temple and outdoor pool are just a few of the pleasures that await you. Open since 2009, Alla Arriba may be one of the best-kept secrets in Argentina. We are located in the charming village of La Falda which is a little over an hour’s drive from Cordoba’s International Airport.
We are a unique and surprisingly affordable educational retreat center specifically designed to meet the needs of workshop leaders and their participants. You’ll enjoy the calm and privacy of our center, while still being within walking distance of the delightful cafes and shopping of the downtown area. Our staff is always on hand to provide any assistance you and your guests may need.
Infused with the warmth of the Argentinian culture, Alla Arriba’s beautiful natural surroundings and comfortable accommodations quickly have our guests feeling at home a world away.
Alla Arriba was founded by the husband and wife team, Enrique and Kristin Dura. Enrique, a native of Argentina, and Kristin who is originally from Indiana, have traveled extensively to experience retreat, yoga and holistic centers around the world. They have worked closely with workshop leaders to ensure that Alla Arriba provides the support they need in an environment that promotes a sense of community while still offering guests plenty of space for quiet contemplation.
“From the beginning we were determined to incorporate the best of our experiences, while maintaining the simple and welcoming atmosphere of Alla Arriba,” explains Kristin. “We want workshop leaders and their participants to feel an authentic connection to the Argentinian culture. Guests feel the warmth of our culture from the moment they arrive. Here time slows in the best possible way which allows guests to relax into an unhurried pace, making it easier for them to focus on the purpose of their workshop or retreat.”
“Individually and as a couple, Kristin and I have been tremendously enriched by the workshops and retreats we have engaged in over the years,” says Enrique. “It became our dream to provide the same opportunities for others who take the time to benefit from the group workshop experience.
“As we worked to create Alla Arriba, our goal was to make the center as accessible to as many people as possible. To that end, we were determined to provide all the services of a holistic spa, and essential guest comforts while keeping the center an affordable destination.
“Together, Kristin, I and our staff have created a place of relaxing calm where guests can choose to do everything or nothing at all. We hope you will join us.”
