A fusion of nature, art, play, and inspiration is what James and Gabriela have created at Equilibrio. My husband and I just hosted a two-week permaculture design course there and the accommodations were really perfect. Being surrounded by nature, the whole site is created for us to access our creative and inspired selves. Equilibrio is a wonderful choice for small retreats, whether being yoga retreats or trainings, artist or musician retreats, or even a small family gathering.The casitas are extremely comfortable and beautifully hand-crafted, where you will feel like you are staying in natures luxury. Every morning I enjoy yoga in the beautiful studio nestled in the forest. The main lodge is perfect for gathering together to eat, teach, dance, play, or stargaze from the roof. The staff is very nice and accommodating, as well as producing wonderful dishes and treats from the kitchen. The beach is a short walk or kayak away, where you will find great surf spots. A wonderful experience and I cannot wait to go back!

I spent 16 incredible days at Equilibrio for a permaculture design course and it was life altering. Equilibrio is a perfect place for expressing and exploring your creative self. Jamie and Gabriella, the creators of Equilibrio, have created a retreat center that encourages creativity. There is a lone desk off in the forest filled with paper, pens, and color pencils. Also, there are instruments in the "hangatorium" like guitars, a full drum set, hand drums, etc. There is an amazing sound system, circus arts materials such as silks, poy, hoopla hoops, and a disco ball that also acts as a swing from the ceiling.They have created a beautiful outdoor yoga space with mosquito nets and fans. They also have mats, bolsters, blocks, blankets, and even eye masks with aroma therapy oils for your restorative yoga bliss. Gabriella is an outstanding yoga instructor (truly the best Ive ever experienced) and if she's not teaching, there is also another instructor who is equally great.I didn't stay in a hut. I camped so I can vouch for the camping area and I quite enjoyed it. I love waking up at night looking at the dark sky and bright stars. I even saw 3 shooting stars while I was there. The camping area was comfortable and the outdoor showers were wonderfully refreshing. The food served at Equilibrio was truly amazing and the staff was very kind.Equilibrio is truly a gem. I was entirely blown away by it and I will recommend it to anyone I know traveling to Nicaragua. In addition to Equilibrio being wonderful, it is set between Popoyo and Guasacarte beaches, two stunning surf destinations with a funky little surf town, places to rent surf boards, and good food too!

I was looking to take a spontaneous trip for the New Year and I got luck upon Equilibrio. It was the best instance of happenstance I could have possibly wished for. This little oasis is the perfect place to unwind, explore, and find peace. As a fellow guest said, owners James and Gabriela treat you like a visitor in their home. They go out of their way to serve delicious meals, arrange activities and transportation, or just leave you to your own exploratory devices. Gabriela's gentle soul was a wonderful guide in yoga classes, both in on-site studio and the beachfront prana shakti. She even led a laughter yoga session to close out 2013.The property is beautiful and seemingly endless, while the guest compounds make you believe that you are the only person in the place (in a great way). I was a first-time solo traveler and I couldn't have asked for a better experience; individual (non-retreat) bookings are brand new to Equilibrio, but it felt like the other guests and Gabriela & James were old friends. I hope to return sometime in the future for a much longer stay, because this place is simply magic.
