    Day 05 : Aqua Wellness Resort

    Aqua Wellness Resort sits on a whitesand beach on Redonda Bay, a perfect halfmoonshaped cove that is backed by dramatic rock cliffs.

    In Spanish, “redonda” means round, and the name comes from the two points of rock that jut into the sea at either end of the bay, creating one of the most protected swimming beaches on Nicaragua’s Pacific coast. In fact, Aqua’s beach was recently named one of the best in Latin America. The beach is superb for body surfing, snorkeling, kayaking, standup paddle boarding, paddleboard fishing, and swimming for all ages, building sand castles or just plain lounging – in a chair or a hammock.

    Though all beaches in Nicaragua are public, due to its limited accessibility, our beach is defacto private. Aqua’s staff keeps it immaculately clean and protects the turtles that come ashore to lay eggs. On a moonlit night, there is no better beach for a stroll or a swim, especially on nights when the bioluminescent algae shimmer silver in the water.

    Aqua guests are welcome to the available complimentary use of watersports gear, including snorkels and fins, kayaks, boogie boards and standup paddleboards. They also offer instructions in surfing, kayaking, paddle boarding, snorkeling and traditional Nicaraguan fishing techniques for an additional charge. 

    Accommodation: Aqua Wellness Resort
