This was such a phenomenal trip, so glad we went. Cartegena was awesome and Gitana del Mar was beautiful. The yoga was in a set in an amazing setting with the ocean waves in the background. The food was delicioso, I loved the hikes and experiences, and made new friends. Looking forward to the next reteat!

Had the most amazing trip with the most amazing host, Molly :) Her energy was radiant through out the trip, I was very pleased! Would highly recommend any trip with Molly!
Part of the reason why I took this trip is because I wanted to go to Morocco but I was scared of going alone as a female traveler who speaks a very small amount of high school French. The accommodations were great throughout the 3 cities we traveled and having all the meals, excursions and inter-city travel covered by the Solseed Team was awesome. They even sorted out getting our luggage from shuttles to hotels - there were no logistics we had to think about the entire trip, outside of our flights. Solseed also did a great job of cherry picking destinations on this trip - felt like our time was really well budgeted and they gave us great leads on what to do/where. Taghazout felt like a hidden gem that I would never have considered and Essaouira was another small city that I may not have made it to on my own. They did a great job scouting. The yoga & pilates classes were great - they were outside which was refreshing. (bring a few extra layers.) Our trip was a mix of some seasoned yogis and lots of less experienced folks - Kristin and Antonio did a good job of creating classes that had something for everybody. Yoga is my jam and I love a really hard class, so I think next time I might look for a group that is a bit more hardcore on that front, but that's not how this trip was billed at the get-go. They really took care of everyone on the trip and it was an amazing experience. Highly recommend this team to anyone looking for a great vacation.
Just amazing! Everything. Thank you!
