The Ultimate deluxe Surf, Yoga and Wellness retreat in Nicaragua

Good morning surfers!
As you all know, I've been all winter at the private beach of Playa Colorado, Nicaragua surfing warm water, taking pictures and connecting with great people in order to offer you more great retreats from where you'd rather be. 
Five months of real training, wonderful sunsets, healthy food and uncrowded amazing waves.

In this time while I surfed twice per day the fabulous spot of Panga Drops, I get to connect with the amazing team of Mark & Dave's surf and yoga lodge and enjoy the great views from their infinity pool after my yoga practice with their Manager & Yoga director, Kim Tasker.

If you're as stoked as me for the surf, you know the importance of Yoga in your life for improving your elasticity, equilibrium and as a whole, connecting deeper with your body for quicker reactions and maneuvers. 

Yoga helped me big way this winter, and I owe it all to my teacher.
Kimmy’s background is as a yoga teacher and massage therapist. She has been teaching Vinyasa yoga for over 15 years. Her passion for yoga took her from Yoga studios in London, to 5 star resorts, luxury yachts, Morocco and several destinations in Central America. She has worked in yoga teacher trainings and retreats with Surf MarocRed Jen Yoga California (see a retreat from Red Jen here)Holly Beck's -Surf with Amigas, and Catherine Halcombe to mention a few.

I connected so well with Kimmy that we started talking about offer to more people the same amazing experience I had during my winter, through a week of Surf, Yoga and Wellness Retreat at Mark & Dave's, located just in front of the world- class surf spot of Panga Drops, one of the bests of Nicaragua and Central America.

Finally after a few months of intense preparations, we are so proud to bring to you in collaboration with Mark & Dave's,  The Deluxe Surf, Yoga and Wellness retreat in Nicaragua- From November through March

You might be asking, how is life at Mark & Dave's. Let me break it down for you.
Mark & Dave's is... to wake up in the morning, walk out of your room or casita and view the waves breaking from the tranquil palapa. Sit back and sip your coffee, do Yoga and then relax on the sofas. During your stay, home will be in one of five private cabanas. This lodge was built by a team of local craftsmen in the traditional Nicaraguan style. The house sits on two acres of immaculate beachfront property and offers three incredible waves, infinity swimming pool & lap pool, and exclusive access to one of Nicaragua’s best golf courses.

The house’s greatest asset is the massive palapa lounge areas. When you’re out of the surf, you will find yourself relaxing in the palapas 95% of the time, checking out the waves, chilling out, listening to music, swinging in the hammock, playing ping pong/horse shoes/etc.
All of your meals are eaten in the open air, the definition of a great tropic vacation!

I could keep just describing the details about our vibe of the place, but sometimes a video say more, than thousand words.

See it by yourself..
