Cuba yoga/fitness/culture retreat

Havana, Cuba

About this trip

For the last two years we have been informally hosting yoga groups, fitness groups, cultural immersion groups, language learning groups, you name it. As the interest keeps growing to be one of the first to discover yoga retreats in Cuba, we now offer this in a more clear and formal way of collaboration. We are really open to new ideas and can tailor your trip entirely to your personal vision. 


Whatever you're planning, we can take care of all the background logistics. Cuba is an incredibly complex country, be it the language, the customs, the currency or the geography. Not to mention the minefield of scams that take place here. 


To allow you to solely focus on your retreat/trip content and looking after your clients, we cover the in-country logistics of travel, transportation, food, activities and accommodation. 

How does organising a retreat work?

1) Make your non-refundable payment and then complete our questionnaire (sent with receipt of payment) to help us get to know you and your requirements


2) Schedule a call (WhatsApp call or messaging, Skype, Phone, FaceTime or a coffee if we're close!) to discuss your questionnaire and the experience you want in more detail


3) After just 3 working days, we will be in touch via email with the proposed itinerary & budget based on our previous chat. We then welcome any changes to ensure that you're happy with your retreat experience


4) Final approval once we've revised any of the changes you had. We will discuss your preferred payment method and send you an invoice. We can happily organise a payment plan to suit you. 


5) Once we receive your first installment, we will finalise all of the discussed reservations. We will then continue to support you as much as you need in the lead up to your experience - see below

The Viñales Experience
1 review
TheViñalesExperience was born from the friendship and dream of three Cubans and one English, as a way to not only share and promote our mutual love for Cuba (and Viñales in particular), but also to support the local people and to help improve their quality of life. As you can tell by our name, we are specialists in all things Viñales. We focus mainly on this region to be able to offer you the very best experiences you could have during your travels here, but we also offer great accommodation (a beautiful colonial mansion!) in Havana and some fantastic city tours. Our combined vision is to offer you an insight into the authentic life of the island and to get beneath the 'tourist trail'. You'll be supporting the local Cubans directly, as well as making great friends with them along the way!

Excellent trip to a great Cuba destination. Saw the real Cuba, and everything was good and went according to plan. We thoroughly recommend the Vinales Experience.
