Arrive in beautiful San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua and feel completely refreshed after a spa treatment of your choice.

Begin your first full day in Nicaragua with ocean-view yoga immersed in the Nicaraguan jungle. Have a bite to eat or head straight to the spa for another treatment of your choosing. Later on, enjoy more yoga in paradise.

Wake up at your leisure and enjoy another yoga class to start your day. Try a class you’ve never experienced before or a tried-and-true favorite. Whichever you choose, practicing in this serene natural setting is sure to be memorable. Next, take a nature hike through the forest reserve. Spot monkeys, sloths and all kinds of birds in their natural habitat along the way. Take a dip in a swimming hole under a waterfall. Just by visiting, you’re actually contributing to offsetting carbon.

Return to the resort to unwind with another spa treatment of your choice, then end your day with more yoga in the great outdoors.

Today, you’ll enjoy a blend go yoga, surf, spa and more yoga. Enjoy each of these joys at your own pace—by now, you’ll be embracing the easygoing pace of this special place.

Today, take a horse-drawn tour of the Colonial City of Granada. Enjoy lunch at a Garden Café. Embrace a local tradition at Temazcal (a Mesoamerican sweat lodge). There will be singing, drumming, chanting in the steam room and then a refreshing dip in the pool or ice bath to cool down.

This is the day of your catamaran tour! Depart San Juan around noon and head for the white sandy beaches for relaxing, swimming and snorkeling. It’s quite common to spot whales and dolphins along your journey. You’ll be back at the resort for sunset.

This is the day of your departure. Enjoy yoga before you leave depending on your flight time. Your transportation to the airport will be arranged in advance.

Culinary Delights

La Dulce Cocina only serves healthy, delicious meals that are seasonal, unprocessed and catered to each guest’s needs. The abundant food program is designed for active lifestyles and includes all-day fruit, coffee, tea, as well as baked goods and desserts in addition to four meals. 


Costa Dulce grew very naturally and did so in the middle of nature. Each of the 12 beach bungalows and cabins has been designed with surrounding trees and plants taken into account and in some cases, the trees grow through the building. All have been built to take advantage of the local Papagayo winds to keep you cool without using too much electricity. The eco-lodge greywater is processed and used to water our garden and grow food for guests. Rustic luxury describes the bungalows and cabins the best. There are no televisions or air conditioning but stunning views, balconies with hammocks, big beds and warm water showers. In addition to the private bungalows and cabins, Costa Dulce consists of several inviting shared spaces. All accommodations are built around the central dining area, where something tasty is always being whipped up in the Dulce Cocina.
