Healthy Living with Miriam - The all-inclusive holistic vegan vacation for all

* The healthy vacation package created with the heart, specially for you*

7 nights / 21st - 28th March 2020

Healthy vegan food, yoga, hiking, learning and exploring the fascinating country of Nicaragua


Join Miriam RM, Health and Lifestyle Coach and co-owner of Apoyo Lodge, for a week of relaxation, yoga, nourishing plant-based food, healthy habits workshops and other fun activities in and around the stunning Laguna de Apoyo, Nicaragua.

This vacation is perfect for those who want to take a break from a busy lifestyle, reboot their body, reconnect with their inner selves, learn how to jump start or sustain a healthy vegan lifestyle, all while being surrounded by a tropical dry forest and the pristine and healing waters of the beautiful crater lagoon of Laguna de Apoyo.

There is space for couples, friends and single travellers of all ages. There is yoga practice in the morning, but this is not a yoga centered retreat. Whether you prefer to stay still or go out seeking adventure, there is something for everybody. This is a healthy, "feel good", all-inclusive holistic vegan vacation that gives you the opportunity to experience new things: from learning about plant-based nutrition to taking a peek inside an active volcano and exploring Las Isletas in Lake Nicaragua by SUP. It is also an opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals who, like you, care for the wellbeing of humans, animals and the planet. Oh! And let’s not forget that you won’t have to worry about food: all meals included AND unlimited juices and smoothies from our Healthy Bar. Nice.

Miriam stumbled upon veganism by chance almost seven years ago, and once she started questioning her food choices, she wasn't able to stop questioning her whole life choices. She left a very successful and stressful career in aviation behind (together with some very poor life habits and some disastrous relationships) and embarked on a personal journey to discover some life purpose and reconnect with Mother Nature.

Fast forward to present day and you find a certified Health and Lifestyle Coach, who is 37lbs lighter and has won the battle to many health issues with a balanced and delicious diet, enjoying a lifestyle free of cruelty and respectful to all earthlings and the planet. Miriam is also now a RYT 200hrs Hatha Yoga Teacher trained in northern India, teaching daily at Apoyo Lodge. After living in 5 countries across 3 continents, Miriam now dedicates her time and efforts to help people all over the globe achieve their personal health and lifestyle goals in a sustainable manner through her workshops and retreats (check out our calendar for details).

In 2016, together with her good friend and business partner Maribel, Miriam opened Apoyo Lodge, a health and wellness boutique eco-hotel, and Nicaragua's first 100% vegan resort. Apoyo Lodge was created as a sacred space where humans, animals and Mother Earth can thrive in harmony, and to bring healthier plant based options to the Central American scene. Miriam lives full time at Apoyo Lodge with her partner Manuel, her step-daughter Yahoska, and a bunch of rescued animals.
