About Nicaragua & Playa Maderas

Close your eyes and imagine one of the most welcoming, tropical and magical beach escapes. Welcome to Villas Playa Maderas, in Maderas, Nicaragua.

Nica is often compared to Costa Rica 10 years ago, before the surge of tourism with hospitable locals, good energy, great food, and beautiful country. Maderas, right next to it’s most popular beach town San Juan del Sur, is almost as far south as you can go in Nicaragua, & it’s only an hour from the Costa Rica border.

“Personally, this is one of those places that when it was coming to end my stay, I truly did not want to leave Villas Playa Maderas.” -Marie 

About the Resort:

Villas Playa Maderas is a family owned resort that has been around for almost 20 years. It is impeccably maintained to cater to any traveler’s needs.  It is luxury, it is serenity and it is right on the    beach of Maderas, Nicaragua…literally.

If you’re into breathtaking views and gorgeous sunsets, this IS the retreat for you.

Our Intention

Our purpose for leading these retreats is to give you magical experiences. Our vision is to take you to places that hold hidden gems of beauty that will take your breath away, places you might not normally travel. We lead these retreats to give you space from your day to day grind, a space to reset AND (possibly most importantly) a space to test the boundaries of your comfort zone. It might be the travel or the living with strangers for a week that pushes you out of our comfort zone. Maybe it’s the thought of practicing yoga twice a day or stepping on a surf board for the first time. We KNOW that these retreats will shift your body, your mind and straight up LIFT your Spirit. Come for the opportunity to get away, to rest & restore. We promise you will get so much more than that.

We have a service that can take groups over the border together. Please reach out to us BEFORE booking a flight out of Toronto so we can get a headcount for how many people might need this accommodation!
