Host a retreat




Apoyo Lodge is a health & wellness boutique hotel and private retreat space located in a secluded area of the Laguna de Apoyo Natural Reserve. The Laguna de Apoyo, which is in fact the caldera of a collapsed volcano that still has some activity underneath and literally translates to “Support Lagoon”, offers you the unique opportunity to swim in its healing waters, surrounded by the tranquility of this oasis that is yet close to some of the highlights that Nicaragua has to offer the visitor.

Our yoga, meditation and healing space is located overlooking the Lagoon and faces east for the most amazing sunrises. We enjoy the company of birds and monkeys as our only neighbours, giving you an opportunity to truly disconnect from the outside world and reconnect with yourself and mother earth.

Nurture in Nature

Apoyo Lodge is a beautifully tranquil place set amongst dense natural foliage and with a view that cannot be beat, it is truly magical. After visiting for the first time whilst hosting a yoga retreat, I can say that Apoyo Lodge was not only the perfect venue but over exceeded any hopes or desires I had when choosing a place to host. The grounds were lovely and well kept, the lodge itself was inviting and warm and the staff were paramount. The Laguna is something to see and feel to believe! Miriam and Maribel were to say the least, an incredible pleasure to work with. Miriam - along with her partner in crime, Manuel - were there throughout our stay and they truly went above and beyond to create a healing, warm, inviting and special place! Miriam is a wonderful lady full of light and energy and always there to help with a big beautiful smile. Deeply passionate about what she does and conscious of her guests and their desires, I could not ask for a better individual to have been on this journey with, to have met, and to now have as a dear friend. I would recommend Apoyo Lodge to travellers and teachers alike. If your planning on taking or hosting a retreat, or simply just getting away and back to nature – this is the place!

The Lodge is absolutely gorgeous! The pictures do not do it justice. Its secluded on the edge of a old volcano that is now a lake. The water is full of minerals, so its great for your skin, but other wildlife (crocodiles) can’t live in it. We did a week long meditation retreat here and it was perfect for us. Quiet, secluded, warm, breezy, and beautiful to the eyes. Miriam and Manuel (the owners) are like angels fallen from heaven. They have a beautiful staff too. They made sure that everything for our retreat went absolutely perfect. They served us the freshest plant based meals and juices every day. The food was too good. Im inspired to continue eating this way, my body really liked it. They also take a lot of pride in being completely eco-friendly. I felt like I was taking really good care of the Earth while I was there. We made a really special connection with the owners and staff. I feel like we are family now, and we always have a home to go back to. If you are visiting Nicaragua, you must spend some time here!

Unforgettable! Out of this World!

I am co-owner of Sol Breath Retreats. Our recent women’s yoga healing retreat at Apoyo Lodge was an unforgettable and powerfully transformational experience. Miriam and Manuel, the co-owners of Apoyo Lodge and their kind, caring, quiet generous staff took care of our every need: from the extra activities they skillfully organized to the cleansing, energizing and scrumptious meals to the clean cozy eco conscious accommodations. And not to mention the magic of Laguna de Apoyo and the surrounding preserve. The mineral rich volcanic crater lake is a luxury to swim in. We were constantly serenaded by the peaceful forest teaming with many awe inspiring varieties of birds. My morning meditations were accompanied by the distant sounds of monkeys in the dawn and frogs at night. And the stars….oh the stars. Miriam is artfully fulfilling what seems to be her divine calling, to create and hold a powerful and peaceful space, in balance with nature, that soothes, transforms and heals every needy soul. I can’t wait to return.
