This retreat will take place at Rancho Santana in Popoyo, Nicaragua. Rancho Santana is situated across acres of tropical dry forest located between the Pacific coast and Tola-Rivas. This residential community boasts 2,700 acres of rolling hills and two miles of rocky and dramatic shore broken up by five distinct beaches nestled in their own hideaways. The ranch has the distinction of being one of the only isthmuses; a strip of land that is bordered on both sides by water, yet connected on each end by land, on the entire Pacific Ocean. This rare geographical phenomenon gives the ranch nearly constant breezes.
