    Description

    Welcome to a place like no other. Serendipitously situated at the base of Volcan Concepción, we make our home on Isla de Ometepe. A conscious, sustainable, plant-based, eco-friendly and social responsible venture, we are a retreat facility for the like-minded. Yoga teacher training, fitness and adventure, hiking in nature, family or corporate groups, you will find your home to come back to year after year. Our mission is to give back to the community in which we share here in Nicaragua by supporting education programs for youth, teaching community cooking classes and hosting free neighbourhood dinner parties.

    Now in our late 30s, we have both tried, tested, and tasted life to the fullest. We have reflected on ourselves and come to one conclusion, we are the happiest and most fulfilled when we can help others. We have both lived lives for ourselves, like most do. But now we are ready to live for humanity.

    A time in history has come where we can no longer live selfishly. Capitalism, greed, and blind ambition have turned food and water into commodities, put children to work in the name of profit and has created a financial environment that is beyond in balanced and the polar opposite of equal.

    We have a vision or the future. The notion of a Utopian society with abundance for all is so faux pas that mentioning it in any typical social setting is sure to bring negativity and criticism. As artists of our lives, we have the choice to create our reality. The collective conscious of humanity may not yet be able to envision a Utopian Society, but that doesn't mean we can't start building our own!!

    Love and Light, Cris and Danielle

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There are tons of recreational opportunities on Ometepe and lots to enjoy during your time off. Ometepe is quickly growing in popularity and during peak season there is always a chance to get out and socialize if you like. Great place to just chill out and connect with nature as well! You can hike one of our two volcanoes, visit a chocolate factory, kayak in the lagoon, swim in a crystal clear watering hole, wake up to howler monkeys and a tropical breeze.
