november 28 - december 4, 2019

Are you ready for the ‘Pearl of the Antilles’? Cuba's sensual and contagious rhythms have influenced musicians the world over, its cigars are legendary and the exotic cocktails are to die for. Cuba, with its mix of Spanish and African roots, is the largest, least commercialized, and most exciting island in the Caribbean - and we can’t wait to explore it together with you!


Join us and you will experience Cuba to the fullest. We will spend 4 nights in the city of Havana and 2 nights by the beach in Varadero.
Taste the Cuban senses with a farm-to-table cooking class adventure, let’s shake up some cocktails, dance to salsa, explore the country’s rich and colorful history, soak up the sun, and of course cruise through Havana with its famous classic cars.

Amidst all the fun, we will of course focus on you and your development throughout the week and beyond.
In these stimulating surroundings we host our workshops given by industry experts in communications, digital marketing,
(personal) branding, wellness and photography. Engage with kindred spirits from around the world; HONeys that share the same passion, curiosity, the urge to express themselves, a burning motivation, and the ambition to reach for the stars.

The HONey’s retreats are all about:
Fun, Focus & Friendship!

travel with cuban experts

Our host, Cynthia, is an experienced world traveler who will take you to all the best spots in Cuba. Furthermore, for our tours and activities throughout Havana and Varadero we will have an experienced (English speaking) local tour guide and we will work with a fixed team of drivers throughout the trip; so you'll always have a friendly and familiar face. 

our stay in cuba

We will stay in a beautiful, private and authentic luxury villa in Havana for three (3) nights, and in a 5* hotel for the final night before departure.

In Varadero we will spend two (2) nights in a luxury beach front resort! So you can roll right out of bed and straight onto the warm sand. What better way to start your day?

You have the option to choose from a shared room with one other guest (twin beds or shared king sized bed) or choose a single room (with a kingsized bed). Each room comes with it's own bathroom.

Should you want a single room, please indicate this when applying. Please note that single room's will have an increase in price.
