Spend two days in and around Granada (“Gran Sultana”) exploring the colonial town, its world-famous cathedrals, architecture, and local culture. By day you’ll hike the side of the Mombacho volcano and get hands-on at a local cacao farm. By night the warmth will come from the ground up as you explore the Masaya volcano and its incredible hot lava craters.

Your days on the Pacific will include unlimited gorgeous beach time, yoga, chillax catamaran sailing, a surf lesson and time to soak up the chill vibes of a coveted 4,000 acre, ocean front, jungle hideaway. With a gorgeous coast and over half of the property protected as a wildlife reserve, you may be able to spy monkeys as you jump the waves (kidding, but not too far off!). Culture, nature, immersion and relaxation… this is a yoga surf retreat adventure for the books.
