  • Description


    Patricia and Tyson are a Nica/Canadian couple who together with the help of family and friends have created a magical beach village on the south pacific coast of Nicaragua. The place consists of a kitchen/restaurant, a bar/lounge, Yoga Studio, work shop, vegetable gardens, chicken/pigs, and an assortment of cabins, not to mention the beach and surf. We host retreats, and other travellers to support our operations financial needs.
    Tyson moved to Nicaragua 11 years ago from the Gulf Islands, B.C, Canada, and Patricia was born in Costa Rica but has lived most of her life in Nicaragua.
    We strive to find ways to be self sufficient/sustainable in our endeavours while being conscious of our neighbours wellbeing and minimizing our footprints.
    While staying with us you will have the opportunity to learn to surf, join yoga classes and meet some great people along the way. We are also emerged in the local nicaraguan culture, with our involvement in the local communities, and majority of our crew being local, you will have a chance to learn about the local customs, language, and people.
    We are interested in individuals who have skills to share with our community. Experienced english teachers, bilingual tradesmen, body workers who are willing to share their knowledge, permaculture/organic farmers, are all welcome applicants.
