About this trip

Repeat after me: 

- Rum tasting on a rooftop overlooking Cartagena with fresh tropical fruits + amazing views

- Cartagena Walking + Street Art Tour & Cartagena Culinary Tour

- Ceviche class 

- Relaxation at our rooftop pool in Cartagena and pool/beach in Santa Marta!

- Beautiful Santa Marta on the coast where we will go adventuring in Parque Tayrona National Park & tube down the river!

- Dance every day

- Meaningful volunteer work with La Sierra Artist Residency


Please join an incredible group of Wildhive women on a mission to play, explore, laugh (A LOT), enjoy, learn and grow. Wildhive's 3rd dance + service adventure takes us to two different locations: Cartagena + Santa Marta, Colombia! 9 nights/10 magical days (all of this & more for $250-$283 a night!).

Retreat Vibe

We all come for different reasons and from different places. But, on this trip we cultivate: Positivity. Empowerment. Acceptance. Celebration. Joy. Freedom. Encouragement. Expression. Laughter. Connection. WILD.

Other than this, nothing is mandatory!

Who Is This Trip For

- People who LOVE a group travel experience. Especially one where we unite in dance, laughter & having one helluva good time!

- People who do not mind a 5 HOUR DRIVE (in a very nice bus w/a bathroom!) to our second location in Santa Marta. Part of Wildhive's trips are that they are off the beaten path. We have to be light & flexible - as any traveler or travel-aspirer knows - it IS an adventure and we cannot control everything, but those hiccups make the best stories! Having a sense of humor is essential.

- There are no single rooms available on this trip. Everyone will need to share a room and even potentially share a queen size bed! Note: There will be plenty of spots around our accommodations to get some solo time if/when needed.

- There is hot water in Casa Claver, however, hot water is limited at Gitana Del Mar. You must be ok with getting a little rustic for part of the trip ;-) There is also no A/C, some rooms have fans. 


Service Project

We will be volunteering with an amazing organization in Santa Marta called La Sierra Artist Residency. We are still determining what our project will be - anything from creating an eco-mural with the indigenous communities surrounding Santa Marta. OR, helping them renovate their rural school! They need a lot of love and we will determine what makes the most sense for our time there, as well as what is impactful + long-lasting.

Flights

We will book the first flight out to Miami (on Delta or any other airline?) on 2/14. There is one direct flight on American Airlines from Miami to Cartagena on 2/14 landing at 1:47PM. There is another direct flight landing at 4:21PM on United, from Miami. We will determine this as the date gets closer, but I have arranged transportation to/from the airport! 

Accommodations

They are ours & only ours! I have booked FULL HOUSE at:
Casa Claver: Cartagena 2/14 - 2/17 & 2/22
Gitana Del Mar: Santa Marta 2/17 - 2/22


*All rooms are shared rooms* 

**Some will have to share a queen size bed**
***Max group is 28 people***

Cancelation Policy

If you cancel your trip more than 90 days prior to the retreat start date, you are eligible for a refund (if we are able to fill your spot with another retreat participant). After this point, all trips are non-refundable.

This was a trip of a lifetime!!!! Amazing experiences, deep connections and in a beautiful country
By Nyssa zacher for ElSalvaHive! on Feb 19, 2019
For one, Las Flores was absolutely beautiful! It was such a great space for 27 women to get to know each other and enjoy sun, laughter (and drinks) together. It was amazing to dance each day with one another, to work side by side for a great cause together, and make new friends. You can feel comfort in a trip like this because it was filled with women of different ages, backgrounds and talents. All is welcome!
