I recently returned from an enchanting retreat in Nicaragua, and I can't help but gush about the sheer wonder of this Central American gem. Nicaragua has effortlessly secured its place among my favorite destinations, and I'm excited to share my newfound love for this country by hosting a serene yoga retreat in the serene haven of San Juan del Sur, more precisely, Playa Escameca.
Savoring the Splendor of Nicaragua Can you envision yourself basking in the breathtaking beauty of a Nicaraguan sunset? Well, my students certainly did. I made the conscious choice to host our retreat in an off-the-beaten-path location, settling on Nicaragua, and more precisely, this hidden gem. Nestled just 40 minutes beyond the vibrant San Juan del Sur, the journey to our hotel was an adventure in itself.
A Yoga Retreat Unlike Any Other So, what can you expect from a yoga retreat in Nicaragua? Expect yoga sessions that come with a view – in fact, multiple views. I led meditation and yoga sessions in various awe-inspiring locations within our expansive hotel. From invigorating Vinyasa flows to the meditative grace of yin yoga, each session required us to embark on short walks due to the hotel's spacious layout. Our retreats encompassed a diverse array of experiences, including Vinyasa, meditation, yin yoga, and even a soul-nourishing Cacao Ceremony.
Yoga Amidst Nature's Grandeur Can you picture yourself practicing yoga amidst such a mesmerizing backdrop? It's an experience beyond words.
1. Conquering an Active Volcano and Sandboarding Our adventurous group embarked on an exhilarating 5-hour excursion to the Cerro Negro volcano, where we indulged in the unique thrill of sandboarding down its slopes. The hike itself, lasting a mere 30 minutes to an hour, was a testament to the wonders of this volcanic landscape.
2. Strolling through San Juan del Sur On another occasion, we explored the charming town of San Juan del Sur, some of us opting for motorcycles and ATVs to traverse its winding streets after indulging in delectable Ceviche. During our exploration, we even stumbled upon the iconic Christ monument and undertook a minor hike to fully soak in the beauty of the area.
Seamless Retreat Logistics Now, let's talk logistics. Our journey had its share of challenges, with flight cancellations and concerns that our students' flights would face the same fate. Thus, I highly recommend arriving early to avoid such issues. Fortunately, the lodging we chose for our retreat was nothing short of exceptional.
