Aventuras del Sur's guest stays at the Finca, it is a familiar house in the nature of an amazing Park and it is five minutes of driving from the beach and 15 minutes from Tarifa town. They have just 7 rooms for the visitors, it is a very intimate place. The house is looking to panoramic views of Africa coast and Ocean, as well as the amazing Mountain of Betis to relax.

The garden is common, with hammocks to rest or read. All rooms are different, so we tried to put different prices to be more just with the guest, depending on the number of persons sharing or the terrace or the bathroom.

There are also two big private apartments, it is fully equipped for 4-5 persons, for families or groups, or just sharing with another guest. But also you can have your own private room or share a twin room with another person.

You can have tasty Mediterranean meals, exciting conversations, a good book, a walk around the farm, a visit to Tarifa, sitting on the beach and watching the waves roll in.

Begin your day with a nourishing meditation in Aventuras del Sur's sea view shala followed by a heating and cleansing yoga session, connecting your body with your breath, mind, energy, and Soul. Connect yourself with nature, with the elements, with the true self and learn to calm and find the peace. After the morning session becoming one Step out at the terrace, breathing in the salty ocean breeze, mingled with the fine scent of the pine tree forests, let your eyes stroll over the rocky hill to the silver-colored sea, glistening in the morning sun, and just listen to the silence.

Then, you enjoy your breakfast in the dining room and prepare yourself for an adventurous horseback ride on Aventuras del Sur's free-living horses guided by the expert Paco.

Discover the tranquillity, the fresh air... through the wild nature of the mountains or along the beach on the back of your horse. For everyone who once went on a horseback ride, this experience is unforgettable.

Every second day, you will be taken on exciting walks (instead of the rides), with Marcel, (call Sacha by the family), in silence or in laughter to peaceful places with breathtaking views over the coastal line and all the way to Africa.

How to get there

Recommended Airports

It is easy to just search "Aventuras del Sur" on Google Map or coordinates. The organizer will send you the exact address via WhatsApp. You can also use your phone to search "Aventuras del Sur", it will show you the way to the retreat location. Carretera de Betis or Betis, Tarifa, Cádiz, Spain.

Arrival by airplane:

Gibraltar International Airport (GIB) is the nearest airport (cheap flights from England).

The second nearest airport is Jerez Airport (XRY) approximately to one and a half hours away (you can find good prices sometimes).

The biggest airport is Málaga Airport (AGP), 2-hour driving, and there are many flights from every country (the cheapest). There are many transfer companies doing the transfer service from Málaga Airport.

You can also fly to Seville Airport (SVQ), it is 2.15-hour drive.

Tangier Ibn Battuta Airport (TNG) is also very close if you go first to visit Marrocco, then you only have to cross the sea by boat to Tarifa which takes only 25 minutes (Tanger-Tarifa boat: FRS).

Arrival by car

The best recommendation is to come by car from the airport. The beaches are not far but Aventuras del Sur is set on the hill, so it is hard to return walking from the beach and also is difficult to find ways through the forest (if you don't know the park). But you can also come by bus or with a transfer company.

Cancellation Policy

  • A reservation requires a deposit of 50% of the total price.
  • The deposit is fully refundable if the booking is cancelled up to 100 days before the arrival date.
  • The rest of the payment should be paid on arrival.
