Salsa Dancing, Cigar Smoking, Vintage Car Cruising, Time Traveling ADVENTURE OF THE YEAR - Welcome to a once in a lifetime trip! We wake up to yoga/meditation/fitness, we get culturally immersed, and we wait until we get back to Instagram because there is no wifi.. and no ATMs, and no cell service, and basically welcome to the 1960's.
10/19 - 10/22
Private Room For One Person
José Martí International Airport (HAV)
THE REAL CUBA
For the first time in decades, Cuba’s door has creaked open for American travelers. As one of the first to experience this cobblestoned communist isle of 11 million inhabitants, you’ll find the rum is plentiful, the smiles infectious and hot dancing encouraged.
We'll fly into José Martí International Airport (HAV), we will help you purchase the correct flights and our team will walk you through the whole process all the way to your arrival. Most of us will leave from NYC. Once we arrive one of the best local guides, Carl Shepard, will be taking us on an incredible time traveling journey for 4 epic days and 3 sexy nights of cultural immersion in historic Havana, paired with daily yoga, swimming bootcamps and dancing all while hosted within a badass wellness center featuring sprawling grounds a 24/7 swimming pool to cool your cigar smoking buns off.
We've also assembled a cast of Cuban characters to give you a proper welcome: musicians, local artists, cigar aficionados and entrepreneurs that understand where Cuba came from, where the country sits now and more importantly where it's going.
Flights. Try to arrive arrive before 1:30pm on Thursday and depart before 3pm on Sunday. If you want to join us NYC leaders, we are flying out with JetBlue NonStop Flight 243 departing 9:14am Thursday from JFK and flying back with JetBlue NonStop Flight 242 departing 2:35pm from HAV.
In case you want to find your own flight no problem, we will find a way to pick you up from the airport since our wellness center is only 20 minutes away.

Favorite Questions & Answers:
What if I don't know anyone?
Even better, we encourage people to go alone - in fact most people go without knowing anyone else. #allnewfriends
How does the visa work?
We walk you through the whole process, but basically it is all with the airline that you book with. #wegotyou
How much fitness is there?
Since this is technically for visa purposes a cultural exchange, our fitness time is limited to mornings and some afternoons. Mantas will lead morning bootcamps and a few sunset yoga sessions! #detox2retox
Is there internet?
We will have wifi at the wellness resort, but part of the magic of Cuba is that it is so cut off from the world so don't expect too much connectivity. #offthegrid
