RESET RETREAT FEATURED IN
DAY 1: SUNDAY NOVEMBER 5TH
Arrive at the Managua airport and meet your local driver as you exit customs. Enjoy the 2½ hour drive to San Juan del Sur. Get settled in your room, meet your roommates for the week, and get out onto the beach. Enjoy dinner, a meet and greet and learn a bit about Nicaragua before a gentle post travel yoga and meditation session.
DAY 2: MONDAY NOVEMBER 6TH
Wake up bright and early for sunrise yoga before a delicious breakfast of local fruit, fresh coffee, protein and a Nicaraguan specialty, gallo pinto. Get ready for your first surf lesson, included in your trip. Wind down your day with afternoon yoga, a healthy fresh cooked dinner and time to reflect, sleep or socialize.
DAY 3: TUESDAY NOVEMBER 7TH:
After morning yoga and breakfast, pick your adventure for the day such as another surf lesson, an excursion to one of the many hidden beaches in the area, or some time on the water. Regroup in the early afternoon to visit our community partner, Barrio Planta Project, and enjoy a (semi!) structured afternoon of yoga with the kids, and arts project, and time for some play and English/Spanish practice while learning about the importance of this non-profit as a secondary education source for the San Juan del Sur community. Back at the villa, enjoy a well deserved yoga session and healthy dinner.
DAY 4: WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 8TH:
After morning yoga and breakfast, use your free time for a hike, some surfing, or more R&R on the beach. Regroup for an early afternoon yoga, dinner, and a special sunset meditation session. If you take part in the optional sea turtle nature reserve add-on, we’ll save dinner for you when you’re back!
DAY 5: THURSDAY NOVEMBER 9TH
Follow an invigorating morning yoga session with your healthy Nicaraguan breakfast. Now that you’ve gotten to know San Juan del Sur and your fellow yoga travelers, pick your adventures for the day. Consider a private yoga session or massage in town, or more R&R by the beach. Join for an extra long afternoon yoga, special farewell dinner, and time in the evening for reflection and socialization with your new friends.
DAY 6: FRIDAY NOVEMBER 10TH:
Join in a short pre-travel yoga session that will get you stretched and zenned for your going home plans. Breakfast will be available extra early so that you’ll have time to pack up and prepare for 5-6 hours between leaving San Juan del Sur and your afternoon flight out in Managua. Our transfers will take people to the airport in groups according to their departure time with the last group leaving by 12:00 noon.
