Civil Unrest in Nicaragua Nicaragua is currently undergoing a time of change marked by widespread civil unrest. The situation has been largely ignored by the mainstream media in the US and Canada, and many of our friends, guests, and potential guests have no idea that anything is happening. Moving Retreats to Costa Rica In an abundance of caution we moved all our summer retreats that had been scheduled to be held in Nicaragua to Costa
Two Locations, one week in Southern Costa Rica The week of June 2-9 we hosted two simultaneous retreats both in Southern Costa Rica. One group of two couples and a pair of longtime friends stayed at boutique hotel and another group of advanced and beginner surfers stayed just down the road at our awesome jungle-surrounded primary location.
