Cuba: Climbing Adventure with Earth Play Retreats

Feb 1 - 8, 2025

Join us for climbing, dancing, culture, yoga and Slacklining in beautiful Cuba!

Cuba is a sought-after destination for climbers from around the world with its amazing cultural experiences, warm weather in the winer and its amazing limestone. However it can be quite challenging to visit on your own.

What makes this adventure different from our other trips is:

  • Supported Travel

    People choose this trip because they really want to visit Cuba and they know that we take care of all of the hard stuff - legal issues, customs issues, travel within the country, where to go and what to see, speaking Spanish and other logistical issues.

  • Culture

    This is our favorite trip in terms of culture. It's lively, colorful, and full of adventure. We stay with locals, eat local food, ride in old cars, walk through tobacco fields, and meet lots of people.

  • Climbing Experience

    Like all of our trips, this one is open to climbers of all skill levels, including beginners to experienced climbers as there are a lot of great routes of all levels.

  • Climbing Skills

    We offer group instruction and mini clinics throughout our days together on climbing technique and skills to increase your knowledge and make you a more proficient climber.

  • Yoga, AcroYoga and Slacklining

    Raquel will be leading yoga classes with a focus on improving your handstands and acroyoga. Sam will host a slackline clinic open to beginners to advanced practitioners. Together, they will help you keep your body stoked throughout this adventure while learning new skills beyond climbing.

  • Multi-Pitch Climbing Experience (Additional Cost)

    Stay for the additional multi pitch day (8th- 9th) and check out one of the area classic multi pitch climbs in Viñales. This will allow you to also enjoy the Saturday night dancing and street life that Viñales has to offer.

Location Cuba is a magical place, where time slows down and you can let go of worries and just relax into the present moment. Amazing cultural experiences, dancing, remote beaches, turquoise waters, limestone sport climbing…this is an adventure of a lifetime. We will be staying with locals in casas particulares.

Havana: Immerse yourself in a city where art is bursting at the seams, the rhythms of salsa flow through the streets and the laughter and lively energy of the Cuban people is contagious. We will wander the cobblestone streets, admire the well worn beauty of this old Spanish city, dance, laugh, eat amazing food, stroll along the old sea wall, known as the malecon, curving itself around the city.

Viñales: Enjoy the relaxed energy of this small quaint country town surrounded by limestone. We will wander each day through tobacco plantations, cute colorful homes, past horses, pigs and chickens as we stroll to the climbing. During our time in Viñales we will visit organic farms, salsa dance, experience the amazing limestone sport climbing and meet and interact with local climbers.

We will be eating local Cuban food on the healthier side. Expect breakfasts with fresh fruit, smoothies, eggs, fresh baked bread, Cuban coffee and tea. Dinners will be customary Cuban; black beans, rice, plantains, fresh organic vegetable and salads, meats and cheeses. Cuba is 98% organic in its agriculture. If you have any dietary restrictions we can accommodate these easily if we know ahead of time.
