Now a tradition, our SUP vacation package combines the elements of land and sea to provide our guests with an incredibly integrated trip that will get your body and brain in shape for spring! Join Jessica Bellofatto of KamaDeva Yoga and Gina Bradley and Shari Hymes of Paddle Diva in Rincon, located in Puerto Rico’s rural Northwest corner. Only a three hour flight on Jet Blue from JFK, this location has the most beautiful stretches of beaches in all of Puerto Rico that offer calm waters, perfect for SUPing: small surf breaks for beginners and larger waves and surf breaks for intermediate surfers. There are plenty of isolated beaches for private yoga sessions and relaxing!
Surrounded by water on three sides, Rincon is a natural and authentic seaside paradise. Warm days, cool nights in Rincon afford visitors an experience in real island living with beautiful quiet beaches set around a 240 year-old town. For those who want to pamper themselves, we can arrange for affordable deep tissue massages, facials and Thai-massages right in your room or on the decks of our private houses: Casa Azul and Pura Vida. Gina Bradley is the owner of our Casa Azul accommodation and is an invaluable resource about Rincon and the environs. She will offer SUP lessons and tours in addition to daily personal training sessions utilizing the surroundings to get in shape! Jessica Bellofatto will offer daily yoga classes and inspiration and encouragement throughout the trip.
