When To Go on a Yoga Retreat in Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico has warm weather year-round. Tourist season is December – April because Puerto Rico sees the least rain this time of year, and people are escaping harsher winters up north. One of the best times to visit, to avoid the crowds but still beat the summer rain, is mid-April to June.

If you’re interested in a particular activity, such as surfing, boating, or trekking, or perhaps you want to experience local festivals, you may want to plan your trip around the best weather for this activity. For example, the best time for surfing in Puerto Rico is between September and December (not high season).

But for a yoga retreat, you can really go any time of year. The weather will be warm regardless, you might just see a little more rain if you go in the summer v. the winter. Unless you are planning on doing the yoga and surf retreat, or you really hate the rain, these small differences aren’t likely to matter much.

Reasons To Go on a Yoga Retreat in Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico is a stunning island. There is a never-ending list of adventurous things to do, including some once-in-a-lifetime activities like seeing bioluminescent phytoplankton.

Puerto Rico’s coastline is dramatic and beautiful and its capital, San Juan, is vibrant and lively. In fact, it’s so vibrant and beautiful it qualifies as a “dopamine destination”. Dopamine travel is travel to colorful and vibrant places and is one of the top 2023 wellness travel trends.

If you aren’t into the city’s liveliness, choose a retreat in one of the many small laid-back surf towns that speckle the coast. Or, perhaps in Puerto Rico’s central mountains, known for tiny towns, fantastic food, and lots of adventure.

Beyond its perfect weather and natural beauty, Puerto Rico is a great place to attend a yoga retreat if you want to support the local community. The island is still recovering from Hurricane Maria and while its economy isn’t dependent on tourism, the industry does play a significant role in jobs and GDP.

Things To Do in Puerto Rico

Yoga retreats in puerto rico

Visit El Yunque National Forest

This is the only rainforest in the United States National Forest system. This makes for a great day trip if you are doing a retreat on the eastern side of the island. You can find waterfalls, swim in rivers, and hike to some amazing viewpoints in this tropical rainforest. Note: You have to purchase tickets ahead of time – they are not sold at the entrance and they do sell out. Reserve tickets here.

Visit a Bioluminescent Bay

There are three bioluminescent bays in Puerto Rico. One of them, Mosquito Bay, is the brightest bioluminescent bay in the world. In order to reach Mosquito Bay you have to take a ferry and if you want to do a tour at night you’ll have to stay overnight.

Go Snorkeling on Gilligan’s Island

If you are attending a retreat on the west side of the island, build in an extra day to visit Gilligan’s Island. You can reach the island by kayak, paddle boarding, or water taxi. Bring snorkel gear (you can rent gear on the main island in Guanica) because the water is crystal clear and shallow – perfect for snorkeling.

There are plenty of little coves and secluded areas to carve out your own private space for the day. Just get there early to get a prime spot.
