About this trip

Join Kristin Khederian, Antonio Aniello and the SolSeekers Tribe for a SolEscape to the magical Caribbean Coast of Colombia! 


This trip is unique as we will be spending 2 nights (one at the beginning and one at the end of our retreat week), in the vibrant & cultural city of Cartagena, Colombia, and 5 nights out at the gorgeous & remote Gitana Del Mar boutique beach resort, located ~15 minutes from the lush Parque Tayrona. 


Our days will be spent relaxing at the beach, eating nourishing, locally sourced food, practicing (always optional) yoga & pilates, and partaking in three rad excursions. These excursions will include: a walk to a nearby waterfall with natural swimming pools, a lazy river tubing day, and a day visit / hiking excursion to the energetically charged Parque Tayrona. 


On our days in Cartagena, you'll have plenty of time to soak up the rich, Carribean culture of the Old City, shop, sight-see, and enjoy world class dining and even some salsa dancing! 


Don't miss out on this once in a lifetime retreat! Space is limited, so reserve your spot soon with a $500, non-refundable deposit. The balance is due 60 days prior to trip departure, and can be broken up into multiple payments if you email Kristin to request a payment plan.

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!

Such an amazing trip! Well organized, wonderful people, great times! Forever grateful 🙏
Most amazing experience I’ve had to date. We went hiking, to natural hot springs, took a cooking class in a locals home, went horse back riding, practiced yoga with an incredible view, and ate delicious local food. The island and resort are beautiful. I met so many amazing people and made friendships that I am so thankful for. Everything was planned for us it was so nice. I highly recommend this company & retreat. I’m already thinking of signing up for another!
