Aqua’s Private Cove
Queen Bed Treehouse at Aqua
Aqua Nicaragua has two yoga areas suitable for leading classes. The primary shala is an open air thatched roof deck perched on the mountainside, overlooking the crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean.
There is also a covered jungle deck nestled in a forested area approximately 5 min walk from the beach.
Aqua has the following props on site for group use: 20 mats; 40 blocks; 14 straps; 10 blankets.
Most of the drive is on well-marked paved highway. After passing the small town of Rivas, the road will shift to cobblestone style pavers. The last 10min of the drive will be dirt/gravel as you make your way up the mountainside.
All yoga group guests also have the option to order ceviche, mahi mahi, red snapper, lobster, and shrimp off of our daily resort menu if they wish at an additional cost.
Aqua can accommodate vegan and gluten free requests. The menu below is a sample only and subject to change.
The private cove at Aqua is also a protected nesting ground for sea turtles. October/November is the most opportune time to catch the baby turtles hatching and making their way out to the open ocean. Head down to the beach in the evening for the best chance of witnessing this natural wonder. Oh, and while you are down there, take a dip in the ocean—you may just be lucky enough to see bio-luminescence light up the waters.
Love seafood? Ask for the fishing + sushi tour at the front desk. Your captain will pick you up at the beach and help you find the best fishing spots. The captain is also a trained sushi chef and will make delightfully fresh sushi for you and your guests, while you are still on the boat!
Stay fit. There is a fantastic jungle hiking/running trail that leads from the side of the property (a 5min walk up the hill from the Aqua beach). The path winds through the jungle and pops out at the picturesque Gigante beach on the other side. A jog to the end of the Gigante beach back to Aqua is approximately 35-45min and will leave you feeling refreshed. Pair an early morning run with the free morning yoga class for an invigorating workout/stretch combo.
