    We are a family run boutique retreat center overlooking San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua that can accommodate groups of 20+ guests. We host retreats organized by others and retreats we organize ourselves. The property is located in a secluded corner of a 400+ acre organic farm and is close to town, beaches, and great surfing.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Nicaragua is currently experiencing a difficult time politically. San Juan Del Sur has not been affected by the protests and turmoil experienced in other areas of the country. We would not be here if we felt at all at risk. You will be able to improve your language skills both with staff here at the retreat and in town. You will be interacting with locals in your daily life. The surfing here is excellent and works all year round. There are local volunteering opportunities we can put you in touch with if you desire.
