  • Bordered by the Caribbean Sea to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west, Nicaragua has no shortage of beaches, and the variety is immense – white sand, black sand, secluded, wild and untamed, or bustling and vivacious. On this 9-day beach getaway, explore idyllic shores on both coasts, beginning on the Pacific, where thick jungle meets sea. Enjoy delicious daily farm-to-table meals, and blissful sunsets from your private plunge pool as howler monkeys play in the trees overhead. Then, retreat to the Caribbean to wander powdery white sands studded with swaying palms, splash in crystalline seas, and explore a world beneath the waves.

      This morning, set out to enjoy some of the very best of what the Corn Islands have to offer - crystalline Caribbean waters, gorgeous island views, and a diverse array of undersea life - as you glide along the coastline in a 40-foot handcrafted sailboat, captained by indigenous Miskito sailors. Enjoy the best snorkeling on the island, then relax on deck with a juicy wedge of watermelon and a cold drink as you sail back to Yemaya.
