8 Days Off The Beaten Path Yoga Holiday in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua

Verdad Costa Dulce Escameca Eco-Lodge, Playa Escameca, San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua

Yoga and Surf in San Juan del Sur

JBYoga is thrilled to be sharing this long-awaited offering, which will most likely become an annual retreat. Join JBYoga for 8 days and 7 nights of yoga, surf, and SUP in the idyllic and relatively still undiscovered paradise that is southern Nicaragua. Often referred to as the next Costa Rica, yoga, surfing, and stand up paddleboarding will all be a part of the week’s activities, with plenty of time for strolling the private, secluded beach, relaxing by the pool, or checking out the shopping scene in nearby San Juan del Sur.
