The location was spectacular! The staff at Costa Dulce were wonderful often going above and beyond. I enjoyed the Nicaraguan foods we were treated to for many of our meals. The activities offered were unique and so much fun! My only concern would be about organization/ communication of activity arrangements, whether regarding times, additional costs... Etc. Loved this trip, would do it again I. A heartbeat!!!

The transportation to the hotel was easy to find and conveniently set up for us. Costa Dulce was not what I was expecting. I think I would have enjoyed it more if I had known what I was getting into, and would have packed very differently. It was more of a hostel on the ocean than a hotel. Small rooms with no locks, screen walls, and bugs everywhere. Some rooms had bathrooms, others you'd have to walk outside to get to the bathroom, and showers were shared by several rooms. No A/C and limited airflow in the rooms lead to hot and buggy nights. The meals were good, and what seemed to be authentic Nicaraguan food-very carb heavy and little protein. There was a super convenient 'honor bar' where you could get beer, wine, rum, or soda and charge it to your room. Massages were great, on site, and super cheap. Most of the activities were done by local contractors and very well done. Horseback riding was awesome. My group and ambassador was great, but have a few more creature comforts would have been appreciated.

My trip to Costa Dulce was incredible beyond words. From the location to the food, from the yoga classes to the energy of the city, everything was perfect. The location is beautiful and very rustic, the food was some of the best I've ever had--each meal was more delicious than the one before, and the yoga itself was absolutely amazing. Massages, surfing, and nature walks were wonderful too. Would recommend and definitely travel there again.

The retreat location was great, rustic, but that was to be expected. Food was fantastic, they were wonderful about accommodating dietary restrictions and the place was so relaxing.

My group and I loved Costa Dulce and the staff! The location was idyllic and I could not have asked for a better retreat venue and participants who joined.
