Program

Aventuras del Sur at the Costa de la Luz began from an Andalusian family dream forged with patience and the love for nature which gave birth to this beautiful project which they love to share with the world. Welcome! Here you will enjoy horseback riding, yoga, meditation, and paths along the beach and the mountains, immersed in the silence and purest nature.

Aventuras del Sur started off as a family dream 30 years ago, Paco, the horseback riding guide, started the family business breeding and training the first horses and building his family home.

Step by step, Aventuras del Sur realized the dream with patience. You will experience this country's lifestyle. Victoria, the mother of the family, is a fundamental piece of the team.

She delights the guests with traditional Andalusian food prepared with vegetables from the garden, eggs from chickens, fish from Bolonia, and products from the area. She will make you feel at home. Aventuras del Sur wishes to offer you an unforgettable holiday of horseback riding, practising yoga, hiking in the untouched nature, or simply enjoying the calmness and peace of the place.

This week is just for you to escape from the daily hustle and the North-European cold, to relax, practice or learn yoga, and do daily intensive horse riding in beautiful nature at one of the last wild Spanish coasts where nature meets the ocean and where the sun shines almost every day.

You can have tasty Mediterranean food, exciting conversations, a good book, a walk around the farm, a visit to Tarifa, sitting on the beach, or watching the waves roll in. Or Vejer, to discover the authenticity of an Andalusian white town.

Begin your day with a nourishing meditation and yoga session (Hatha or Restorative):

The class is good for beginners and medium level, adaptable for all participants. You will use props when you need them so do not worry if you are not flexible. Yoga is not for worries, Yoga is not flexibility, it is for meeting yourself better, studying your full system from the inside, from the experience. Also, try to discover and learn how can you improve it step by step; body, energy, mind, nervous system, the connections in between all, and how to find easy our inner self space, or soul... also learn how to calm the system, and much more. Those who never tried yoga before are very welcome.

During your visit, you can practice restorative yoga assisted by Sandra Trujillo, (Yoga and meditation teacher, who specialized in anti-stress yoga, restorative yoga, soft and therapeutic yoga). No matter what level of experience you have, even if you are new to yoga it will be the perfect way to learn the path of Yoga; learn the meaning of meditation, delve into pranayama or breathing and cleansing work, and relaxation techniques, and mental concentration from experience.

Her goal as a Yoga teacher is to improve the understanding of the mind-body connection, learn to find hidden patterns in the nervous, mental, and physical systems, and experience harmony between the different systems of being; body-mind, and soul in the union. Know the meaning of inner peace from experience. The meaning of Yoga is the union of being, and in its sessions, you will be able to learn its authenticity.

Then, you enjoy your breakfast in Aventuras del Sur's cozy dining room and prepare yourself for an adventure's horseback ride on Aventuras del Sur's free-living horses guided by “cowboy Paco”, who was born here in the village, and know how to surprise you during the horseback trails. The rides of this program are for experienced riders (medium or advanced level). For beginners, there is another program, so ask for it if you are a beginner. For everyone who once went on a horseback ride, this experience is unforgettable.

Retreat location

Aventuras del Sur is located in a very special, still seemingly untouched place in the natural park, the 'Parque Natural del Estrecho'at the Costa de la Luz. The name says it all, 'Coast of the Light'. The house is located in a village called Betis, close to Tarifa in the southeast of Spain. It is at the southern extreme of Europe facing Africa, where the Mediterranean and the Atlantic oceans meet. Betis is a unique, traditional, and natural place where you can find peace and feel close to nature.

You can discover small untouched beaches with white sand and a blue ocean. The trails will take you to the beaches of the coast or breathtaking viewpoints in the mountains. Gibraltar International Airport (GIB) is the nearest airport (cheap flights from England). The second nearest airport is Jerez Airport (XRY). It is approximately one and a half hours away so you can find good prices sometimes.

The biggest airport is Málaga Airport (AGP), two hours driving, and there are many flights from every country (the cheapest). You can also take a flight to Seville Airport (SVQ) which takes you two hours. Tangier Ibn Battuta Airport (TNG) is also very close if you first visit Marrocco, then you only have to cross the sea by boat to Tarifa, which takes only 25 minutes.
