The setting for this exceptional fitness adventure is Nicaragua on Central America’s Pacific Coast. Nicaragua has majestic volcanoes, enchanting colonial towns, and lush cloud forests. The Aqua Wellness Resort (Aqua) is situated in a tropical forest on Nicaragua’s Emerald coast on the Pacific Ocean just north of Costa Rica. You will spend six nights surfing and centring yourself through yoga in an exceptional natural environment, escorted by a fitness professional from Fitness Adventure Travel.
Aqua Wellness Resort is a new wellness destination which caters primarily to a discriminating clientele. You will embrace spiritual, intellectual, and physical growth in an eco-friendly and highly desirable venue. Aqua is situated in Gigante, a fishing village where you can watch stunning sunsets, loosen up with yoga, drink with the locals and play in the ocean. This perfect location is just walking distance from world-class surf breaks.
Aqua is nestled in a cove set into the mountains overlooking Redonda bay. There is a private beach with well-maintained grounds. This spectacular setting is a piece of paradise: a secluded and peaceful setting for a relaxing beach holiday, yoga, meditation, and spa treatments that nourish the soul. The accommodation is set partly on the beach and on the hill side. In the surrounding area you will encounter nature: turtles, butterflies, lizards, crabs and monkeys.
The resort organises day trips for fishing, beach exploration or visiting local places of interest such as: the Masaya Volcano, located in Nicaragua’s largest national park; the Momacho volcano reserve (the highest reaches of this volcano are home to a cloud forest); and Ometepe Island, a UNESCO world bio-diversity site.
The Aqua resort is just a two hour drive from Nicaragua’s international airport, or 20 minutes by helicopter.
This is luxury treetop living. Elevated off the ground to minimise impact on the forest, the villas have been built to maximise your views and experience of the rainforest. You will be able to fall asleep to the meditative and tranquil sounds of the Pacific Ocean and wake up fully energized.
Accommodation will be in air-conditioned tree houses or luxury suites with room cell phone, wi-fi, mini fridge and coffee maker. The tree houses are 340 square feet with queen sized bed and en-site bathroom and writing desk. Some rooms feature outdoor showers and balconies and some others a private plunge pool. Luxury suites are 550 square feet and additionally include king-size bed, kitchen, outdoor deck space with rocking chairs and plunge pool.
The resort has a secluded 1,100 square foot palm thatch covered open-air platform for yoga with ocean view. The stunning sattvic location provides clean air, sand and sun conducive to yoga learning and teaching.

Nicaragua is in Central America. Visitors come for the richness and beauty that this country has to offer: it is known as the land of lakes and volcanoes. The Pacific side of Nicargua has two fresh water lakes – Lago de Managua and Lago de Nicaragua (or Cocibolca) – the two largest such lakes in Central America. The country has strong folklore, music and religious traditions, heavily influenced by Europeans from a by-gone colonial era but also made richer by Amerindian influences. The warm tropical climate, biological diversity and magnificent volcanoes make Nicaragua an attractive destination.
