NICARAGUA YOGA RETREAT - November 25th to December 9th.  Instructed by Paul Broomfield

Joining us for Free & Easy's epic escape means growing your practice, but also giving yourself time to relax, enjoy the surroundings and nourishing yourself in whatever way you need in the moment. If swaying in your hammock with a good book and letting the day roll by is what you’re in for, then so be it. If you are up for a hike through the jungle, or testing your skills on the waves - you have the freedom to do that. Each day presents something new, and having 14 days means that you can tune into your breath, slow down and soak up each moment in a way that most of us have a hard time doing in our busy western lives.

Escameca

Arguably one of the nicest beaches in Central America, you won't find Playa Escameca in any travel books…that's because this spot is uniquely Free & Easy! This incredible stretch of beach is hidden way south on Nicaragua's Pacific coast, almost in Costa Rica, and boasts not only gorgeous scenery but also some seriously gnarly surfing conditions that you can enjoy all to yourself. Because the best part about Playa Escameca is that there's nothing there - no hotels, no bars, no other people! There's just the gorgeous bungalow style Casa Horizon: our very own FnEZ-built retreat. Days in Escameca can be spent in so many amazing ways. Whether you're simply soaking in the serene beauty of the surroundings, grabbing a surfboard and catching some waves right in front of the lodge, practicing yoga, swaying lazily in a hammock, or kicking back with some cervezas next to a beach fire, you won't find anywhere more different from your everyday life. Here you can do as you like and experience the true freedom of getting away from it all.

Laguna de Apoyo

Laguna de Apoyo is a pristine lake inside the crater of a dormant volcano. After being declared a national nature reserve in 1991, Laguna de Apoyo has been fiercely protected from invasive resorts and remains a beautiful natural refuge. The stunning lagoon is warmed to a comfortable temperature from the earth's core and is widely hailed as having the cleanest water in Central America. A variety of exotic wildlife can be found around the lake, but time is best spent here relaxing in one of the cozy lakeside houses. We end each one of our Nicaragua trips in a serene lodge right on the lake in Laguna de Apoyo and it's one of the best places we could imagine to get to experience a new place in Nica and maybe even have one more yoga session before the journey comes to an end! !

Epic Experiences you will have on this adventure

Surf a Wave

Nothing compares to the feeling you get the first time you paddle into a wave, stand up as it breaks and ride the face of it – this is the incomparable feeling of surfing. When you get it right, you'll know, because you'll be more excited than the first time you had sex and probably more addicted to it, too! Surfing is arguably the most challenging sport in the world and requires you to learn much more than physical coordination. In order to surf a wave, you'll need patience, discipline, a lack of fear and an insatiable urge to have fun. It's no coincidence that 7 of the countries that we run trips to (Indonesia, the Philippines, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Peru & South Africa) have wicked surf scenes, because there's nothing quite like it. *** PLEASE NOTE surfing is dependent on the right conditions and not always possible

Swim In the Lake of a Volcano Crater

Nicaragua is a country full of incredible hidden backpacker spots and Laguna de Apoyo is one you don’t want to miss. This 23,000+ year-old dormant volcano has, over time, filled up with rainwater. This has resulted in what could be one of nature’s coolest ‘swimming pools’! Not only do we spend two nights along the volcano’s rim–but you will get to relax and swim in the pristine waters of its giant crater lake! Kayaks and standup paddle boards are included as well, so you can go on your very own adventures around the crater. Volcanic paradise at its finest! (For people doing our 'Final Fiesta' New Years trip, this is only available for extension trips)

Catch a Fish and Eat It, Too

We get so many people who come on our trips that say they don't like seafood and won't eat it - usually, they're not from a coastal town. So when we serve up a fresh barracuda or tuna or some other tasty fish that the fisherman caught that morning and we convince them to give it a try, the first thing they say (with a satisfied smile) is that this doesn't taste like the seafood they've tried. There's just no getting around it, fish is meant to be eaten fresh! And the only thing tastier than a fresh fish is one that you caught, too! Catching the fish that you eat used to be a part of life and still is in many parts of the world, however, more and more people are buying from the commercial fishing industry which is unsustainable and is destroying the ocean's eco-system. We offer the option to go fishing on nearly all of our trips with friendly, local fisherman that show you their tricks - it's an experience that not only teaches you the importance of fishing but is also a hell of a good time: on a boat, with friends, with beer, in the sun, drifting down a tropical coastline… 'nuff said!

See Baby Turtles Hatch

Seeing streams of baby sea turtles burst through the sand on a tropical beach and scramble for the ocean is an incredible sight and is only possible on a few beaches in the world. Sea turtles have an astounding sense of radar and always return to the same beach they were born on to lay their eggs and two of these beaches are located in Nicaragua and Costa Rica and we visit both of them on our Central American adventures. The best time to see baby sea turtles hatch is at night around a full moon as the light from the moon guides the near-blind babies to the shore to catch a wave out to sea and the darkness helps protect them from predators. And if you’re lucky you may also see a full-size sea turtle ride a wave into shore, dig a deep hole on the beach and lay her eggs! *NOTE: THIS ACTIVITY IS SEASONAL FROM JULY TO FEBRUARY

Practice Yoga on the Beach

Practicing yoga on the beach in warm, tropical weather provides you with the perfect environment to learn how to find a calm within yourself and feel your mind truly relax. Listening to the sounds of the jungle and the crashing of the waves on shore only adds to the bliss of this experience. You can experience practicing yoga in a beautiful and isolated setting under the expert guidance of yoga instructors on several of our our trips. So take an hour or so out of your day to stretch, breathe and enjoy one of the best yoga sessions of your life in paradise!

Pacific Coast Booze-Cruise!

Nicaragua's southwest coast is arguably Central America's nicest stretch of beaches. With one massive sprawling beach after another framed by rocky cliffs and fascinating fauna from cacti to palm trees, seeing as much of this coast as possible is must for any visitor to Nicaragua. Unfortunately, the coastal roads in Nicaragua are not very accessible to say the least and so really the best way to see all these beaches is by sailing the open sea! Boarding a catamaran sailboat stocked with ceviche, guacamole and as much beer and rum as possible is the way we like to do it to fully enjoy spending the day gawking at the stunning natural setting while at the same time, throwing down and having a party fit for such a glorious sailing experience. Oh and we almost forgot to mention the wicked surf breaks at almost all of these beaches, so there's always the option of tossing the board in and paddling into some gnarly sets before continuing on our way. Some crazy stuff tends to go down on this adventure as it's always a highlight of the trip, but you'll just have to experience it for yourself to see what's possible when you disembark into the Nicaragua's pacific coast with an arsenal of friends armed with all the makings for an epic good time!
