On this trip, we are going with the flow. Sit back and relax or get out and adventure - all in the company with like-minded travellers. 

 

Daily:

- Soak in the lush atmosphere of our home away from home, sipping a fresh fruit juice by the pool. 

-Stretch it out and breathe in deep with a local yoga instructor. Class is offered daily on a beautiful outdoor, open yoga deck, nestled between lush gardens and calming ocean waves. It's an ideal place for a relaxing yoga experience. 

-Catch a wave! We're staying in a less crowded surf town with world class waves. Local instructors are offering surf lessons daily (time is dependent on weather and tides - will be determined each morning). These surf instructors are unmatched - from former pro-tour surfers, to lifers with vast local experience. All levels welcome!

-Finish off the week with a bang (or a fire!). Soak in the last moments and reminisce on the week's adventures with your new friends while watching the sun set on the beach. Music, drinks and a bonfire - we can't think of a better way to finish this epic adventure (and start planning the next one!)

Additional Excursions:

-Get the best of culture and adventure in a day! We'll do a locally guided walking tour of Grenada (a colonial city that is one of the oldest on the American continent), admiring the architecture and learning the history. Close to Lake Nicaragua, an ancient dormant volcano created an archipelago of little islands - we'll cruise around these and admire this unique landscape. We'll explore the crystal clear water of the Apoyo lagoon before hiking around the edge of the crater of Masaya. 

-Experience the traditional rural Nicaraguan lifestyle with a community visit. We get to experience the raw hospitality and rural beauty as the locals share their daily life. We'll ride the back of an ox cart through the forest, make our own tortillas and learn about the corn crops.

-Want to catch dinner for the group? Head out on a half day fishing trip with a local fisher, learn what's swimming in the waters and bring back your fresh catch to share with the group

-If you're a horse lover, opt for a scenic horseback ride while you admire the unique beauty of Nicaragua
