Adventure to Havana Energy Awaken hosts “Adventure to Havana” trips.  This trip typically has no formal program, but has daily activities including meditations, shared energy work and guided tours of fascinating places with ideal attributes to practice bringing positive healing energy. There are daily morning meditations, and a swim and after breakfast, we go to the city to visit many fascinating historical places with unique energetic attributes to experience.

Excursions include:

  • Cristóbal Colón Cemetery. Visit site of the Milagrosa. Amelia Goyri died in childbirth in 1903, her baby passed on with her. Tradition at the time was that the baby was buried with its mother between her feet. When her husband had the site opened to bury his father years later, Amelia was found holding her baby in her arms.  There is a strong palpable feeling of the divine feminine you can feel as you approach the site, even before you can see it.
  • Firing Squad site. There is a site in the moat of La Cabana fort where many have fallen to firing squads. The bullet holes in the wall can still be seen. This is a great place to bring healing energy; this has been a powerful experience for many.
  • Christ statue. See the view of the city from the Eastern shore at the feet of the Christ statue.
  • Rincon. This pilgrimage site to San Lazaro is a destination specifically chosen for those who practice energy work. In the tradition of Cuban spirituality it is also a shine to Babalú-Ayé. The fountain behind the church is known for its healing qualities.
  • Havana Churches. The churches in Havana are often gathering places for those dedicated to specific deities within Cuban spirituality. Different churches have very different energy both in vibration and intensity.
  • Old Havana. The squares and streets of old Havana are fascinating. We will wander and explore and see what strikes our fancy. Museums, architecture, culture, colour and energy abound in Havana. Walking streets constructed hundreds of years before automobiles when Habaneros needed to be protected from pirates is always an adventure.
  • Concerts/ballet. Depending on what is being presented, where will be opportunity to see one or more performances. If we choose not to go to a formal event, there is music all around on the streets of Havana.

Everything is an adventure in Havana. Taking a stroll greets you with dynamic energy. You never know what is around the next corner.

This includes flight, accommodation, transfer from airport, breakfast daily and the services of Andrew from Energy Awaken who will lead meditations, be your guide and provide extra workshops & outings as requested.  Please budget an additional $50 per day for meals, transportation and incidentals. This tourism video has excellent images of the beautiful architecture and scenery of Havana.  All the sites seen in the video will be seen although the Tropicana Show is optional.  Please click here.

Accommodations are basic but pleasant and very close to beach for this “Adventure” trip.

Yoga Adventure to Havana!  There is now a yoga option on the adventure.  There will be daily sunrise yoga as well as a private Energy Awaken Yoga session.  The yoga will be led by an Energy Awaken Yoga Practitioner. (This option is available with adequate demand.)

Things to know

  • Cuba is one of the safest places in North America. That being said use common sense.
  • The most dangerous thing is being a pedestrian in Cuba. Cars have the right of way!  If you get hit, it will be your fault for being in front of a car.
  • Watch your footing. There are not the same safety standards.  You can find a man hole cover removed next to a side walk.
  • Be discreet when taking money out of wallets and do not wear expensive looking jewelry.
  • Potential scams. There are professional scam artists in tourist areas.
  • I keeps pens/candies on me.
  • Always check your bill. Many restaurants will short change you.
  • There are no toilette seats in Havana except in tourist hotels. You tip bathroom attendants change.
  • Change money at banks/airport and hotel (premium) Credit card with pin works in machines.  Always need passport for any financial transaction not in cash.  Budget $50-$60 USD per day for meals/transportation/incidentals There are 2 currencies. Local pesos and CUC (kook) or Convertibles. 1 CUC =0.77 CDN (Sept 2018)
  • Bring Canadian cash or credit cards with withdraw funds
  • There is no shopping in Cuba except for crafts, coffee, cigars, & rum.  (I can make recommendations)
  • Comply with luggage allowance on tickets. These guys are looking to make extra $.
  • Bottled water is available and recommended.
  • Ensure you have medical insurance. CAA/Blue Cross sell it online. You can purchase in Cuba also but coverage is for local care only.
