Project Description

Date: December 6-11, 2017

Location: Rincon, Puerto Rico

Skill Level: All Levels


This  retreat  is all about  taking  the  concept  of  adventure  and play to a whole new level in a tropical paradise! Redefining Play will be all about exploring the wonders of the outdoors as we embark on climbing trips, surf adventures and play on slacklines set up on the beach and over the water. Intended for students of  all  levels,  this  retreat will feature climbing trips to  beautiful  limestone crags in  tropical  jungle surroundings, surf  lessons  and slacklining  with  optional  yoga & AcroYoga classes to stretch, realign and fly. Evenings will include Thai Massage classes to restore well being in the body and ensure a good night sleep so you are recharged for the next adventure.

***An optional full day of  guided  climbing is  available  for an additional cost for those who are interested to stay through Monday evening.


Redefining Play  is based in Aguada Puerto Rico, a 10 min drive from the Aguadilla Airport BQN (or about 2.5 hours from the San Juan Airport).  Rental cars are recommended to get around town and are quite cheap (as  low as $15 / day through,  shuttles and taxis can also  be arranged to get to/from the airport and into town. *Puerto Rico is part of the USA and you DO NOT NEED a passport to get in!  It is a 3.5 hr flight from NYC

Classes & accommodation will be based at Grateful Souls Hostel: An amazing mansion right on the beach. We have 4 private rooms available *** these rooms go fast, BOOK EARLY!
