LA PALMA (Carnival)

LA PALMA (Carnival)

We are never too tired of discovering the stunning nature of this island, walking among its vulcanos, ravines and green mountains…how can we get tired of celebrating Los Indianos Carnival on the street of Santa Cruz?!

 

YOGA will undoubtedly be the star of the trip: the way we choose to get to know ourselves and connect to our inner self and to the other people. We will practice outdoor Yoga everyday with gentle or more dynamic sessions, introspective or more physical ones. It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner, this trip will be an opportunity for you to get closer to and to try this millenary fascinating discipline.

 

ACCOMMODATION & FOOD

We will stay in a beautiful colonial house of beginning of XXI century, located in the old town of El Paso, a little village at the feet of Caldera de Taburiente, in the hearth of La Palma Island.

The Hostel has 4 rooms, a shared fully equipped kitchen, dining room with tables and a chill out area. Sharing facilities are 3 bathrooms, big terrace with tables ideal to see the sunset or have breakfast while enjoying the pleasant view of the village and of the surrounding hills.

 

ACTIVITIES

HIKING

Hiking paths will be of intermediate level. We propose the following:

. Marcos y Corderos.

. Barranco de Las Angustias (in the Caldera).

. Barranco de la Madera.

. Camino de la Costa.

. Barranco de la Zarza.

 

Choice of the route will depend on the weather and priority will be given to participants of previous years. Since we will have several cars, two or more groups can be formed.

IMPORTANT: for Marcos y Corderos or Barranco de las Angustias we will have to catch a taxi and price is NOT included.

 

YOGA

This year we will realize various Yoga sessions: in the morning before breakfast we will share a guided Meditation on the terrace of the Hostel and a gentle Yoga practice to wake up the body and the mind.

After each hiking route we will share a Yoga session focusing on stretching the body and practicing breathing exercises.

Sessions will be open to all levels, no previous yoga experience is required.

In addition Thursday morning we will share a #Power Yoga class on one of the marvelous beaches of the island, where we will afterwards have lunch and spend a few relaxing hours before catching our return flight.

 

LOS INDIANOS CARNIVAL CELEBRATION

Like every year we will spend the third day (Monday), after two days of immersion in the nature, on the streets of Santa Cruz to celebrate the famous Fiesta de Los Indianos.

The day of Los Indianos has been celebrated during many years the first Monday of Carnival in the capital of the island:  the celebration wants to remember the poor local immigrants who left the island to go to America, especially to Cuba, and then came back to their land showing off after becoming reach.

A full day on the streets of Santa Cruz with people from all around the world dressing in white as the tradition says, dancing from early in the morning to late at night at the rhythm of Cuban music, drinking fresh mojitos and eating local food…you will be in La Habana for a day without having to fly across the ocean!
