Surf

There will be a whole team of knowledgeable people to make your surfing experience a pleasure. Nica Retreat has partnered with JC, an area local, who will give you a well-guided group surf lesson. The time of the surf lesson will be dependent on tide schedule. After that, you may want to take on some waves on your own or play in the whitewater, and a board will be provided for you for the whole week. Your surfboard will be matched to your needs and experience. Long boards, short boards, and stand-up paddle boards will be at your disposal. Extra surfing lessons are available for an additional cost.

Yoga

Classes will be available twice a day, with a more energetic style of Vinyasa flow in the mornings, and a more restorative practice in the evening in the midst of a beautiful sunset view. All levels of practice are welcome and all classes will be adjusted accordingly to the energy of the group. All mats and props are provided.

This retreat will take place at the Buena Vista Surf Club in the beaches of Playa Maderas in Nicaragua. The resort is a secluded jungle eco-lodge surrounded by a lush forest and the Pacific ocean. It is overlooking the surf where guests usually switch off their smartphones to unwind and give in to the simple life. This is a place for people who want something different - staying in a private cabana among the trees, sharing family-style meals with like-minded people, watching the sunset and the stars from the deck in the treetops, and strolling to pristine beaches that are within five minutes distance.
