MetaMovements in Montserrat

Fall 2023

8 days, 7 nights of Dance & Nature… Choose Your Own Adventure!


Lovers of dance, adventure, nature and travel themselves, the directors of Chez Mango Villa and MetaMovements came together with a common vision.  The goal was to create a way for dancers to enjoy the ultimate MetaMovements dance retreat in paradise, WITH their loved ones who don’t dance!  


With our unique model, dancers can dive deep into the training they crave, while also enjoying excursions and spending time in nature with their travel-partners. Those who aren’t training intensively will experience more incredible island activities, and learn some fun dance moves in the evenings if they choose. Each traveler will decide what makes the perfect retreat experience for them!

Other Travel FAQs


Payments on the Ground


  • We recommend bringing Cash 

  • You can also use cashapp, venmo, and zelle

  • Many activities or purchases do not offer refunds… although some may offer transfers

Getting There

  • At this time, the way you will get to Montserrat is on a hopper flight from Antigua.  The flight is short and beautiful!  Cost is about $200 Round Trip, and it’s best to book AFTER you have confirmed your flights to and from Antigua.

  • Prices will vary for getting to Antigua depending on where you are traveling from.  We have seen prices below $100 from cities like Atlanta, Orlando and more… basically places that are hubs for low cost airlines.  From Boston tickets average $400-600 Round Trip.

  • When you arrive in Antigua, it will usually be midday or early afternoon

  • Usually you would take the 4 or 5 pm flight to Montserrat, but you want to allow some time… for example, if you arrive at 2:30, take the 5pm flight

  • When leaving Montserrat, we recommend that you schedule flying out of Antigua late that afternoon so you can take the 11am flight out of Montserrat. If you need an earlier flight, that is also possible.  Please feel free to ask for help for booking.

  • You could also decide to spend a night in Antigua on either end of your voyage.  If you are there 24 hours or less between flights, there is no entry tax.  If you are there for longer, it’s $35.
