8 Day Natural Luxury Yoga Retreat in Santa Maria Keys Havana Cuba

  • Havana, Cuba
  • May 14 - 22, 2019 (9 days)

About This Event

Discover the natural luxury of the beaches of Cayo Santa María during our yoga and relaxation retreat.

Imagine yourself on an 11-kilometer-long beach, practically virgin with crystal clear water and white sand.

In its seabed, you can practice diving, observe algae, corals of beautiful colors and mollusks. Marvel watching the colonies of flamingos, gulls, among other birds that surround the key.

Contemplating vibrant sunrises and sunsets we will practice Hatha Yoga and meditation. 

I invite you to discover the real Havana in an active, curious way, with a great capacity for inexhaustible astonishment and discovery.

You will witness an experience of real Cuba, the Cuba that can only be seen knowing its corners by the hand of a Cuban.

To know the Cuban idiosyncrasy you will stay at "Casa Boutique" conveniently located in the heart of Havana, a city that since its first centuries became the most important cultural center of the island.

Diversity is the sign of Havana culture. Traditions of African, Spanish and African origin converge, with some Chinese and Arabic, among other recognizable influences in the daily life of the city.

In Cuba, time is not perceived as quickly as in other places, but surely there are not many places, where every moment is lived with such intensity, starting from something that is the most precious gift of the country, the Cubans.  


Event Highlights

  • This retreat of natural luxury and yoga in Cayo Santa Maria is a 7-night stay that gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the luxury of the key while you discover the real Cuba.
  • Enjoy amazing beaches and 1 day in Havana.
