Activites

While we encourage all guests to wind down, reset the nervous system and recover from doing so much, we also think that real adventure and movement supports this, in the right dose. You'll explore the Afro Cuban Community art alley with live drums and dance performances, and work up an appetite in a Salsa and Rumba and Afro Cuban dance classes. You'll also be able to enjoy a sunrise hike with a local guide, stopping to enjoy a traditional cup of coffee on the mountain while you take in the views of the valley!
