The Yoga Paddling Adventure offers 8 days and 7 nights of activities with daily yoga sessions and paddling opportunities and several excursions exploring the beautiful island of Puerto Rico..
The Villa is located on the ocean in the center of the Gastronimica Routa, a restaurant rich area along Playa Salinas. There are two houses on the property, the smaller one bedroom casita and the larger 3 bedrooms and 2 bath casa. The larger house was nearly destroyed in Hurricane Maria and will be back online for guests starting Jan 1, 2019. I will add additional house photos at that time.
There is direct access to the ocean from the house, for swimming, paddling and SUP Yoga.. There is a laundry house and a big courtyard for outdoor Yoga sessions. The large house has a marvelous porch with good cross breezes from the ocean. Meals will be held here. The smaller house has a lovely private deck, dining area and superb ocean sunset views.
With this program most of your meals are included, anyone with an inkling and a good recipe is welcome to take on a lunch or a dinner for the group. The kitchen is comfortable with all the standard amenities including a ninja for smoothies. We will always have coffee and tea available, you are on your own for any specialty beverages. Meals are primarily vegan in nature using fresh ingredients. Plan on low salt, no sugar, low gluten, low oils. Think healthy! Meat & dairy can be added.
The three bedrooms are set up in a traditional island layout, two with separate doors to the porch. The third is reached through one of the other bedrooms and has it's own bath. There are 3x double beds and a set of twins. Or consider taking the 1 bedroom house for the ultimate in privacy. Our program is intimate in size with 5 to 8 people maximum and two hosts.
