Program

Program

Day 1

Getting settled before enjoying a private welcome dinner at the hotel.

Day 2

You head for a full day excursion where you start the day with a yoga class between Cacao-trees. You continue the day with a brief tour around the land of a chocolate farm and make your own chocolate from fresh beans. After having enjoyed a vegetarian lunch at the farm you head to a local lagoon for a refreshing swim.

Day 3

Get your sneakers on because today you are making a proper hike through the jungle with the local "McGiver-ish" guide. The destination of the hike is nothing less than the 5th most beautiful beach of Brazil, Prainha. At the remote beach you enjoy a tasty picnic, do a yoga class and relax in the sun before heading back home. In the evening you all meet at the beautiful yoga shala of Ilha Verde where you will take part in a traditional Cacao ceremony.

Day 4

After breakfast you head to the best surf school in Itacaré for a surf class at the remote Engenhoca beach. You hike down to the beach through an amazing jungle (about 15 minutes hike) and have a lunch break from the local and picturesque beach hut. In the afternoon you meet up for yoga at a breathtaking location: The Barracuda Beach Hotel Roof Top! You will enjoy a light yoga flow to stretch out your surfed out arms while the sun sets in front of you over the sea line. Once you are done with your practice you stay at this beautiful hotel for a VIP dinner overlooking the ocean.

Day 5

Today you take a boat along the river and head to a spectacular waterfall where you will have a swim and a picnic. After spending some time in the Mangroves and the river you will enjoy a lunch in front of the ocean at Iemanja Beach Club. After lunch everyone will get to try out SUP Yoga! Once you are done with yoga and dancing you head to the beach where you will experience a unique cooking experience. Their chefs will prepare a banana leaf-sealed fish that is grilled inside the sand! While you wait for dinner to be served on the beach you enjoy some wine, a bonfire and some live Ukulele playing in the background.

Day 6

Enjoying a nice breakfast before it is time for goodbye-hugging and email exchanging with new friends from all over the world.
