Exciting Yoga Holiday in Nicaragua

Expert tip: This is one of the most popular yoga retreats offered in Nicaragua.

Use this challenging time to give yourself the gift to go inwards, heal, and grow. Take this opportunity to reset and let this be your turning point to a more conscious life. To ensure your safety, all of Eden on the Chocolata retreat groups will stay small, you will mostly live outdoors and they will make sure they implement the best safety and hygiene policies possible.

Eden on the Chocolata provides space for you to connect with yourself and your surroundings, and adopt a healthy lifestyle through healthy food, yoga, and movement. Imagine waking up in the morning to the sounds of birds and monkeys in the nearby jungle. Each day beginning and ending with yoga looking over the ocean.

A healthy smoothie bowl is coming your way while you are drinking freshly brewed coffee at the rancho surrounded by banana trees. You will enjoy the amazing view, exercise in the outdoor fitness area, and dive into the swimming pool to cool off from the heat of the year-round sun in Nicaragua.

During the day you have time to explore the lively San Juan del Sur and the beaches around or have the time to do nothing at all. Come and join us and make these imaginary days a reality.

Eden on the Chocolata principles:

  • Connect with yourself
  • Living consciously through yoga, food, and connection with your surroundings
  • Taking care of the people and the environment in and around Eden

During this retreat, you will be staying in Eden on the Chocolata which is an eco-lodge in a beautiful garden on the road named La Chocolata. The luxury cabanas have been built to give you the experience of living among nature without compromising on your comforts. Eden on the Chocolata believes in an ethical approach to all aspects of business and tread lightly on the environment, therefore it runs on solar power, and the glass, papers, and plastics are recycled.

Inspired by nature, Eden has six 40-meter square private wooden cabanas. Every bungalow has its own king-size bed (or you can separate the bed into 2 single beds), mosquito net, fan, private bathroom, and balcony with a Nica-style hammock.

Eden will be your home away from home where you can get into the habit of doing yoga, being active, eating healthy, take the time to wind down, relax and make new friends over family-style dinners.

Program

In this holiday, you will enjoy two times a day yoga overlooking the ocean. You will start the day with a Vinyasa yoga session and you end the day with a more relaxing yoga session during sunset. During the holiday, there will be one yoga sculpts in the week. Combine yoga with sports, and dive afterwards in the outdoor swimming pool. You have the time to explore the lively San Juan del Sur and the (surf) beaches around Eden or have the time to do nothing at all.

San Juan del Sur is a small town located in a horseshoe bay with lots of restaurants and cafes. From a peaceful home base in the countryside, you’re only a 10 minutes' drive or a 30 minutes' walk away from town. Experience the best of both worlds! Eden looks out over Nacascolo Bay, which is a 15 minutes' walk. It is a beautiful bay to walk around and relax.

How to get there

Recommended Airports

Arrival by airplane

You can book your flight to arrive at Augusto C. Sandino International Airport (MGA) in Managua, Nicaragua. It is also possible to book your flight to Liberia in Costa Rica, but then you have to cross the border, which is normally not difficult. Both options are around a 2.5-hour drive away.

Eden on the Chocolata offers (free of charge) a taxi from Managua airport to Eden at 12.00 noon on the day that the retreat starts. If you arrive another day or time, they can set up a taxi for you for 90 USD one way. The transport from Eden to the airport (or other places) is not included in the price. From Liberia, it is 140 USD one way or you can take the local bus, which is much cheaper. Local buses are around 5-10 USD and shuttles are between 25-35 USD. Shuttle companies are Iskra Travel, Caribe shuttle, and Casa Oro.

If you want to book a taxi, let Eden on the Chocolata know your flight details and we take it from there. It’s best to try to arrive between mid-morning and mid-afternoon and depart noon onwards. But you can also come and leave at other times. Taxi can be taken 24/7 or you can stay overnight near the airport.
