Nicaragua's Emerald Coast is a breathtakingly beautiful stretch of pristine coastline
, complimented by lush jungles, small villages, and the occasional towering mountain. It's something that you deserve to experience in utmost comfort, and with the knowledge that your visit will leave the natural wonders around you for future generations to experience.
Naturally, this makes the incredible amenities and sustainable philosophy of our vacation rentals at the Aqua Wellness Resort a perfect choice for your next trip below the equator!
Appeal of Aqua Wellness Resort
Reaching the Aqua Wellness Resort is relatively simple - the southern Nicaragua resort
is just 85 miles from the Augusto Cesar Sandino International Airport by car (or mere minutes if you opt for a dramatic helicopter ride). Surrounded by tropical forests and featuring a pristine, private white-sand beach, the resort is a nice slice of everything great about Nicaragua's western coast.
Don't worry about your presence disrupting the delicate local ecosystem! New tree-house style lodgings built above the forest floor help keep your impact nice and small, while providing luxury accommodations in an utterly unique setting surrounded by swaying trees, scampering monkeys, and distant crashing waves. You've never experienced a vacation rental quite like this!
Things to Do at Aqua Wellness Resort
As the name of the resort suggests, Aqua Wellness is an ideal destination for rejuvenating and relaxing, with the beauty of the jungle and sandy shores of the Pacific all around you. A staff of experts allows guests to partake in soothing yoga and meditation classes, which vary from group sessions to smaller, more private affairs.
Afterward, head to the on-site spa to continue your rejuvenating treatment. Whether you go all the way with a soothing massage and volcanic clay body treatment, or simply take a refreshing shower and admire the open ocean views is up to you!
Speaking of the ocean, the private Playa Redonda Beach is yours to explore
during your stay at the resort. Bring your favorite book and let the pounding waves relax you as you lounge on a beach towel, or hop in the water and go for a swim. Kayaks, snorkels, and stand-up paddle boards are provided free of charge, so don't hesitate to try a new way of exploring the sea!
Day Trips from Aqua Wellness
As nice as Playa Redonda is, you should definitely pay a visit to the nearby surf breaks. Beaches like Playa Gigante are just minutes away and provide waves ideal for the sport, letting you put the surf lessons you took in at the resort to the test. If you'd prefer a different oceanic experience, get in touch with the resort and arrange a day of boating or fishing. The chefs will even cook up your catch when you get back!
Our vacation rentals at Aqua Wellness are perfectly positioned for several exciting day trips, from ecotourism in San Juan del Sur's
thick rainforest canopy to visits to the historic Spanish-colonial city of Granada. You can even catch a boat to Ometepe Island in Lake Cocibolca and visit freshwater beaches in the shadow of twin volcanoes!
