Day two: A yoga swing in the mountains
Elevate your favorite poses… literally! Find a different type of altitude when you practice aerial yoga in Puerto Rico. While you’re staying in the central mountains of the Island, or if you plan a road trip during your stay, set your GPS to Aguas Buenas, where you’ll find Casa de la Ceiba. This is the hub of Aeroyoga Puerto Rico. Inspired by traditional practices and elevated by a tailor-made swing, this modern yoga retreat combines movement theory from exercises like pilates, dance, gymnastics, and more while including relaxation techniques such as guided meditation. You can enjoy aeroyoga alone, in couples, and even with friends, regardless of your expertise level.
Be ready for a yoga lesson like no other. Don’t be intimidated by the swing because it will allow you to perform unthinkable positions – even if you’re an average yoga practitioner or if this is your first time. At Aguas Buenas, you can take in the view and unwind as you swing, hang, stretch your back, find your core, use it as a Pilates machine, or simply relax and meditate. You’ll be able to do it all and go at your rhythm. After all, the goal is to slow down your thoughts and find your center.
It is recommended to book in advance since aeroyoga is only available during the weekends for three-hour sessions, including a light lunch with a vegan option.
Once you’re all limb and loose from yoga, it might be a good idea to go for a hike, so head out to La Charca Recreational Center near el Río Bayamón and enjoy the boardwalk and trails. You can also go to Paseo El Mirador, Cerro La Tiza, or Cerro Marquesa, which lookout points with mesmerizing views of the town and the region’s verdant terrains.
Head over to Organico Bistro just on the borderline between Aguas Buenas and Caguas for a healthy farm-to-table gastronomic experience that will surely please vegans, vegetarians, and health-nuts. In addition, you can find a Caribbean menu at places like Majo Restaurant, Marcelo Restaurant, and Sierra Negra.
