This retreat is meant to soothe & support your wellbeing with daily yoga offerings, delicious healthy meals, hiking adventures, relaxation massage, group tour & more!
Each day will be an opportunity to rejuvenate. Experience daily yoga and meditation taught on a beautiful wooden platform overlooking the lagoon and its stunning views, delicious healthy meals, desserts, herbal teas, massages, and so much more.
Discover the magic of Nicaragua, known for its jungle-clad beaches, majestic mountains, and volcanic landscapes. During this trip you will experience the best of Nicaragua by staying at the Apoyo Lagoon Natural Reserve Lodge, a truly sustainable health & wellness boutique hotel. Apoyo Lodge specializes in mindful whole plant based healing cuisine. It is the only 100% vegan retreat hotel in Nicaragua.
Lake Apoyo is an ideal location to escape the daily distractions of city life and reacquire a connection with your true self in the stillness and tranquility that the nature reserve offers. The water of the lagoon is believed to have special healing properties and is coined as “the jewel of Nicaragua.”
Enjoy group excursions to explore the beauty of Nicaragua as well as other sources of inspiration such as
swimming in the lagoon, stand-up paddle boarding, napping underneath a palm tree, hiking along the greenery, catching up on your reading, or simply connecting with nature once again.
