YOUR JOURNEY BEGINS NOW.
Imagine yourself working steps from the roaring surf of the pacific ocean. You're surrounded by vibrant jungle sounds, strangers who've quickly become like family, and conversations that fade late into the evening after a long day of work & waves.
Welcome to Playa Santana, Nicaragua, where we're hosting 25 people from creative and entrepreneurial backgrounds around the world to live, work, surf and explore together for two weeks. This remote and hidden cove is a surfer's paradise, and an idyllic location to take an intentional break from your routine, find new perspective, build new relationships, and grow new ideas. The goal is to disconnect to reconnect, remind ourselves of what's truly important, and live with intention and purpose with an incredible community of peers
There's little to do in this tiny outpost. In fact, that's the point. With miles of stunning coastline and three of arguably the best surf spots in Nicaragua a short walk or tuk-tuk ride away, there's no better place on earth to drop out of the urban jungles, strip back the bullshit, and reconnect to the things that matter.
Communal workspace with wifi and backup hotspots on-site. But, you might prefer to work by the pool, or opt to simply read a book in the hammocks instead.
Learn how to surf in Nicaragua’s best breaks, hike an active volcano, stay in a volcanic lake, or go for a jungle hike to local hot springs.
Lunch & learns. Peer-to-peer workshops. Family-style dinners & BBQs. Themed conversations & discussions, poolside happy hours.
Daily yoga, beach workouts, surf lunch breaks, sunsets over the Pacific. No shirt, no shoes, no problem. This is beach life.
Explore the historic towns of Granada and Leon, and experience Nicaraguan's incredible warmth and rich culture for yourself.
THE COMMUNITY & EXPERIENCE
