On an EarthSplash retreat you can expect to be an integral part of a small group to enjoy a more personal and memorable experience at an incomparable price! Tailor your yoga practice, centre with guided meditation, and benefit from personal instruction. In your free time, participate in group explorations, float, snorkel and/or dive in the salty Caribbean Ocean. Hike through tropical forests, listen to birds, or simply breathe the fresh air, and enjoy time in solitude! Our week will be spent in northeastern Tobago, recently declared a UNESCO biosphere reserve. Nestled into an isolated cliffside, our eco-friendly villa offers panoramic views of the entire village, the rainforest, and the Caribbean Ocean. Fall asleep to the sound of waves! Photos.

Recently declared a UNESCO biosphere reserve, our destination takes us off the beaten path to the most picturesque and pristine of Tobago villages. The quaint fishing village nestles on steep cliffs above the deep blue Man O’ War bay, isolated by mountains and a narrow winding road.
This retreat supports and integrates with the local community, culture, and cuisine. We will connect with the laid back pace of this traditional, protected Caribbean village.
