We were headed down to Southern Nicaragua to check out Rancho Santana and talk about possibly using it as a location for an upcoming women’s surf and yoga retreat. The drive usually takes about 6 hours but we wanted to be adventurous and see how long we could stay on dirt roads. We saw some interesting countryside, blew a tire, got tubed by a tree, went through multiple rivers, and it ended up taking 13 hours, but we eventually made it to the super comfortable beach-front condos at Rancho Santana.
The surf was pretty small while we were there, but we scored a few waves and with offshore winds all day, there was no rush. Easy living!
