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 Hotwire.com), 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!
