Location

We have rented out Hush Maderas, a boutique eco-hotel located on a headland with breathtaking ocean views of Playa Maderas. From the hotel, It is 5 minute walk down a jungle path to the soft sands of the beautiful Pacific Coast. Playa Maderas is famous for its consistent surf and it’s also connected to two other beaches that are perfect for long beach walks. And finally, It is just a 15 minute ride away from San Juan del Sur, a popular tourist destination for backpackers, yoga practitioners and honeymooners alike. It is in the southwestern region of Nicaragua close to the Costa Rican border.

Getting here

We recommend flying to Managua (Nicaragua); this is where we will have shuttle vans waiting to take our group to the hotel. There will be two different shuttles for our group and we aim to organize them at times convenient to the majority of the flight arrivals. There may be some waiting around, but we will be in touch about preferable flight options as more become available.

The flight is not included in the cost of this retreat. Managua airport is under 3 hours from Playa Maderas. If you prefer to arrange your own transportation to the hotel, a private transfer is $70 one way and we can help arrange this for you.

Sign Up

Please click "Sign Up" under the room you're interested in and It will prompt you to send us an email. Let us know if you plan to travel with a group, partner, friend or if you would like to be matched up with another solo traveler.   

We will send you an invoice, payment agreement and cancellation policy forms and you will be able to put down an initial deposit to reserve the room and hold your spot. The remaining balance can be split up into a maximum of 4 additional payments.

The complete balance will need to be paid in full by February 1, 2022.

This Nicaragua Training includes housing, food, activities, transportation and 100 hours of daily practice and study in Nicaragua, as well as online access to an additional 100 hours of content. It does not include your airfare to Managua, Nicaragua, travel insurance, spending money for personal items, and alcohol or additional food/drinks from the hotel.
