Welcome to Cabo Rojo

Cabo Rojo (El Pueblo) – Cabo Rojo the town, that is – is the only bland part of what is otherwise a fascinating region. It sprawls haphazardly around Hwy 2 and acts as a supply center for the sparsely populated, mangrove-fringed coast outside town. Before you hastily depart for the nearby beauty spots, the town has three reasons to linger: a museum remembering the area's colorful erstwhile personalities, an office of the Puerto Rico Tourism Company and one of the west's best healthy-eating restaurants.

Puerto Rico Weekend Yoga Retreat

On day one, enjoy the tropical breeze with a welcoming breakfast on the morning you arrive. Take a troll to the beaches that are in walking distance from the house (3-5 minutes) and swim in the calm Caribbean sea. After a few hours return to the house for our freshly made lunch which consist of mostly local veggies, fruits and perhaps fish. We will then have a few hours of down time as you continue to arrive and let your busy daily lives go. Slowing down your heart, mind and spirit. By sunset we will enjoy a wonderful yoga session on the beach and then finally our dinner back at the house before turning in for bed.On day two, we start early morning meditation/yoga session on the beach followed by breakfast and our first excursion to a different beach Punta Ballena, a beautiful virgin beach that mostly locals know and is off the beaten path. The ride over is breathtaking as we drive through cliffs watching the Caribbean Sea from high up above. If time allows, we will venture inland over to another town where we will go deep into the jungle and visit a beautiful waterfall Soplaera, a natural waterfall that is about 30 feet high and falls into an exquisite deep pool where you can swim and meditate. At our excursion stop, we will have our lunch picnic with delicious fresh food prepared by our chef before returning back to the house. Some down time will be available and you can either take a nap on one of the hammocks available in the patio or venture over to the beaches close by. Dinner will commence around 4pm before our excursion to one of our islands jewels, the bioluminescent bay. La Parguera is a small fishing town that has local cuisine, fritters, souvenirs and such which offers a glimpse into life as a Puerto Rican being a tourist in their own land. Johnny's Boats is our guide out into the bay with beautiful views of the stars. The experience of the bioluminescense is one that we hope you remember Puerto Rico as a highlight of your trip.Day three once again begins with our morning yoga/meditation session followed by breakfast before our first excursion out to Cabo Rojo to the Los Morrillos Lighthouse (Historic landmark) and Cliffs. The hike up through these volcanic rock formations is a relatively easy one but can be a tad exhausting due to the heat so be sure to bring your water flask. The lighthouse offers another breathtaking view from high up the Caribbean sea with cliffs as high as 200 feet. Moving on from this incredible experience is the Natural Arc just a few minutes down from the lighthouse.Our swim stop will be just about 20 minutes walking from the natural arch over to Playuela Beach. This "secret" cove has the lighthouse as its backdrop and an entrance to the rich emerald green Caribbean sea. After a few hours of swimming in paradise, we start to head back with a quick stop at the Salt Flats then finally yoga, dinner and bonfire on the beach.
