Tour of Taino organic farm

This half day experience will teach you about aquaponics and sustainable agriculture, as well as get you into the local culture of rural Dominican Republic. The Taino organic farm grows a variety of fruit, vegetables, and super foods which you’ll be able to taste fresh off the trees during your tour.

River tubing at Yasica River

After the farm tour, be ready to head down to the beautiful Yasica River. The cooling fresh waters will be your guide as you float peacefully downstream from 1 to 2 hours. Adventurists are invited to scramble up a jungle side cliff and jump from an overhanging tree into the crystal waters below. Afterwards you’ll enjoy a lunch prepared from fresh organic produce.

  • Marisa Megan

    Marisa has studied yoga for more than 10 years, including lineages such as Ashtanga, Iyengar, Para, Tantra, Dharma, and many others. The exposure to so many types of yoga has helped her form a unique teaching style, which focuses on strength, alignment, and breath, but most importantly about finding the path of ease and doing what is right for your body.

The retreat will be held in Cabarete, Dominican Republic. Cabarete is best known as one of the world’s meccas for kite boarding. The sport is popular due to the consistent winds nearly year round, so it is one of the best places to learn, practice, and perfect the sport. Cabarete however, has so much to offer beyond kiting.

It also is a fantastic surf location for both beginners and advanced surfers with waves reaching double overhead in the fall when the wind dies down. Most of the breaks are coral based, making the perfect formation when the conditions are right. Cabarete also has horseback riding, beautiful lagoons for paddle boarding, and waterfalls to be explored.

Due to the active, modern community who frequents Cabarete, the town is full of healthy eating options, ecological businesses, and sustainable tourism. Cabarete is home to a lively international community that supports local development through private business operations and non-government organizations.

The center of Cabarete is full of international restaurants, bars, live music venues, and much more. The Yoga Loft believes in living a balanced life, so for those who enjoy the nightlife as well as the day, you would not be short of options.

    "I traveled to Cabarete and participated in various gym classes at the Extreme Hotel Gym. Want to highlight one of the classes cross fit classes with trainer Jeremy. His session was awesome and Jeremy is one heck of a trainer. Would highly recommend to anyone interested in fitness."

    "I really enjoy the beach/easy-going vibe of this gym, the people working there are really helpful, and its perfectly located; close to Encuentro the surf spot and Kitebeach the kite spot. This really makes it easy to get a fast workout in after a good surf or kite session. The gym members are a perfect mix of locals and tourists blending together, but its never too crowded. The yoga loft, beach bar, and pool really complement the gym perfectly."

    "I visited Cabarete, DR recently and found the coolest gym ever! Rogue fitness is the gym you have been dreaming of. They have tons of equiptment like TRX, Bounce weights, Racks, Dumb bells and it all comes together with the trainers. Zach gives off the best vibes and is over flowing with knowledge from crossfit to extreme yoga. If your looking for a get-a-way that will challenge you and relax you at the same time, this is the place!!"

    "Awesome gym with super friendly staff! Their classes are hard yet super fun with really knowledgeable instructors that will help you with whatever you need. Zach and Jeremy know what they are doing! A good bonus is that you get cooled down by the ocean breeze as you are working out! My favorite gym in the world!!"

    "What more can one ask for? OK good Karma and you will get it when you visit. I came for the Kite surfing, which is excellent, swam every morning, did yoga, visited the farm, ate at the restaurant, supported the artists, walked the beach, and met the most conscious people at the extreme hotel."

    "Molly is an amazing yoga teacher. She is very hands on and will correct your form or encourage you further into a pose. In just my few practices with her while on vacation, she helped me discover my length and put me in my first headstand. Thanks!"

    "My daily routine for 1 month at Extreme Hotel: Wake up. Look out the window to check the wind. It's only 9am and the flags are already moving, sweet. Wander 50 steps over to the yoga studio overlooking the ocean. Stretch and breath. Mind is clear and soul is at ease. Wander 10 steps to eat some yummy breakfast. Chat with friends. Walk 5 steps. Pump up a kite and enjoy a few hours of beautiful kite surfing. Land the kite. Eat yummy lunch. Chat with friends. Launch the kite. Try new kite skills. Watch the sunset while skimming across the ocean. Land the kite. Enjoy sunset beers with friends. Discuss evening plans. Meetup and take a motorcycle to dinner at 1 of the many delicious spots around town. Drink and dance the night away. Repeat. I will be back."

    "A unique and quality property in a wonderful North Coast Town. The rooms are very basic yet clean and more than adequate, with ceiling fans, and a nice balcony. There are so many activities to chose from, all on-site and high quality, trapeze, pool, yoga studio and fitness area, all before the amazing beach action, kite surfing of the highest quality, superb teachers, and professionals to watch and emulate. Whatever your desire, the activities will live up to your standards. The restaurant has been undergoing renovation and improvements and is wonderful, I only wish it was open longer, closes at 4 p.m., perhaps later in the year. Overall a great value in a superb location on the wonderful North Coast."

    "I stayed with a friend of mine at the Extreme hotel over Memorial Day weekend. I was focused on just regular surfing; she was focused on surfing and kite surfing. The place is a sort of compound of different sports, including a cross fit gym, kite surfing, trapeze, yoga studio, and farm. The price was extremely reasonable, the service was efficient and friendly, the rooms were clean and comfortable enough, and the people were fun and social. It's a very supportive environment for someone looking for an active vacation, and I look forward to visiting again next year!"

    "As an aspiring flying trapeze artist, I was looking for a getaway that didn't interrupt my training. Extreme Hotel turned out to be the perfect balance. With a flying trapeze rig (and awesome staff), aerial apparatus of all kinds, a top notch crossfit gym, a yoga studio overlooking the beach, and all of the downtime one could desire, this hotel met every expectation and, quite possibly, ruined future hotels in my mind! This hotel is not for someone who considers a hotel without room service as camping. The hotel itself is very spartan in a very good way. There is a fridge and water cooler in each room, a decent sized bathroom, shower, and closet, and not much else. In my humble opinion, this is perfect. It encouraged us to sleep in our room and not much else (although they did have wifi, which allowed us to keep our friends jealous with constant facebook photos). We spent the rest of our time exploring the amazing beaches, eating at the hotel restaurant, and basking in the amazing weather by the pool, when we weren't training, of course! We spent 11 days at Extreme Hotel, and would gladly stay and / or go back for more."
