5 Mind-Body Outdoor Sports to Practice on Your Vacation

Actividades cuerpo-mente Samaná

Vacations are a time for you to disconnect, but also, to connect with your more authentic side, with your true self…

We know that everyday life is crammed with feelings of urgency and stress. That’s why we’ve developed a program of outdoor activities to help you escape from this whirlpool, from the feeling of having to have “everything right now.” To enjoy every moment and get in touch with your more spiritual side, with no pressure.

Did you know that training outdoors has mood benefits and can improve quality of life? Exercising in natural light, by the sea and in front of breathtaking views, intensifies the experience and can make you reach an even more authentic state of relaxation.

The Treasure Experience hotels in Bahia Principe stand out with their wide and varied offer of mind-body activities, which involve exercises focused on the search for harmony, balance and, of course, a physical workout. In addition, the hotels are located amidst wonderful natural surroundings. Best of all, these activities are included – meaning you will have no extra costs!

Below, we recommend 5 outdoor sports to practice on your vacation:

Sunrise Yoga

Sunrise Yoga Caribe

Can you imagine practicing yoga overlooking the Caribbean Sea or next to a warm-water swimming pool amidst green, leafy landscapes? You, the coast, and the sun… a unique connection. Practice yoga with no artificial additives. Where the sound of the waves is the only music, and the sunbeams kiss your body.
We recommend visiting the Luxury Bahia Principe Cayo Levantado hotel, located in the most unspoiled region of the Dominican Republic: Samaná. It is the only hotel on the island of Cayo Levantado and it has an exclusive beach for its guests.


This activity was created by Joseph H. Pilates around a century ago and continues to be a worldwide trend. It is a very famous form of exercise due to its great benefits to our physical health and concentration.

What could be more interesting than practicing Pilates in the Riviera Maya? A land with ancestral history and ancient relics. The Luxury Bahia Principe Sian Ka’an hotel is the ideal place for this. It is a hotel just for adults, located in the Mayan jungle and next to a beautiful golf course.

Body Balance

Try a discipline based on Yoga, Tai Chi, and Pilates that improves flexibility and strength and provides calm, harmony, and well-being.

In the Grand Bahia Principe Cayacoa hotel, located in Samaná, Dominican Republic, you will be able to experience this activity. You will be met with spectacular views, an environment filled with intense greens, and a quiet, beautiful beach. Samaná is also a secret destination, just waiting to be discovered. So, if you are looking for a destination that’s not overrun with tourists, this is the option for you.

Tai Chi

Tachí Samaná

Tai Chi is a martial art that offers benefits for the mind and body thanks to its combination of meditation and physical training. It is an exercise that is performed slowly and works the muscles of the body, providing strength, flexibility, and balance.

Enjoy this activity at the boutique hotel in Samaná: Luxury Bahia Principe Samana. It is an exclusive hotel for adults that is characterized by its very calm atmosphere and personalized service for guests.

Surf Yoga

Surf Yoga Caribe

Start your day with the visual spectacle offered by the island of Cayo Levantado, located in the peninsula of Samaná, in the Dominican Republic. Enjoy the tranquility of the sea and the warmth of the Caribbean sun while you practice Surf Yoga. This brings two disciplines together to create an activity that combines physical and mental training.

Ready to find harmony, serenity, and enjoyment? Search within, from the pearl of the Caribbean, and enjoy yourself and the present moment!

Remember to check with your chosen hotel for the schedule of available activities.
