Diva Destinations Set Sights on Puerto Rico

Imagine, if you will, a place where locals, surfers, avid travelers, adventurers and health-oriented free spirits mingle along quiet beaches, pristine water with world-class surf breaks around every corner.

This is Rincon, Puerto Rico, the surf capital of the Caribbean, and the location of the next SUP, Surf and Adventure Retreats with Gina Bradley and Jennifer Ford of Paddle Diva, with guest host Holly Rilinger.

The four-day retreat, from November 2 to 6, includes daily stand up paddle lessons, or a surf lesson for all levels; Lifted classes with Rilinger on a deck overlooking a lush green valley and deep blue ocean; and a walk, run or hike through the local jungle, roads and beaches.

If you choose, you could take a SUP snorkel tour to the pristine reef Tres Palmas, practice sunset meditation, Reiki and essential oil sessions, take a trip to the art-walk and armers market in town, or even add on additional excursions: a waterfall adventure, a swim in the bioluminescent bay in La Parguera, a beachfront spin class, a scuba trip to Desecheo Island, horseback rides at sunrise or sunset, or a half-day trip to the pink salt flats and cliffs of Cabo Rojo National Park.

Costs start at $1,950 for double occupancy with a shared bathroom, or $2,400 for single occupancy and a shared bathroom. Airfare is not included.
