Don’t worry, you will still have housemates to keep it social. Strong wifi, full kitchen and various areas for working around the villa and property.

We highly recommend sharing a room to better connect with your squad; a debrief at the end of an activity or long day is an instant connection point. Strong wifi, full kitchen, and various areas for working around the villa and property.

A Month for Your Mind, Body, and Career
At the optional 6am meditation and journaling, while we sip coffee on the yoga deck, watch the sunrise and surfers in the water, we will create, share, and hold each other accountable with our goals for week.
The jungle gym workout starts at 7am, this is always a variety of workouts and we're usually done at 8am with optional extras at the end.
By 8:15am we're enjoying our breakfast spread of multiple local fruit smoothies, local eggs, quiches, pancakes, bacon, vegetables, and loads of guacamole! Our private chefs also work with any dietary restrictions or preferences you have.
Dedicated time for silent 'deep work' starts after breakfast and usually goes until the sun begins to set (5:30pm-6pm). That is the universal sign for 'it's time put your feet in the sand' and we all slowly begin to congregate together either at the infinity pool, in the surf lineup, or the beach bar!
Dinner on Mondays is at the local restaurant and included. We talk about our days, meet other locals, and usually be at home for a nightcap or just bed by 9pm. Believe us, you'll be wiped out from the day and in bed early!
Speaker Series Tuesday
We hold to the same routine M-F except for the afternoon activities.
Also, carve in some time in the week for your included 1on1 surf lesson!
On Tuesdays our private chef cooks us up a hearty meal at our villas. But before that, we've got our Speaker Series! Your encouraged to share your knowledge, skill and expertise in the field you work in with the group.
Hump Day Wednesday
By now you know our routine, BUT we've been working hard all week so how about a break with a full body massage? Yep, that's included in... we got you. After the workday, and a beautiful sunset we head out to a local restaurant for dinner and drinks!
And just as a reminder, other things that are included as part of your experience are:
Same routine as the week, but when the sun goes down we're all about games! So let's let loose by around the beach bonfire with some SYB traditions after our included dinner at our villa.
Something about today always hits different. After our accountability check-ins we hype up the workday and then hit the finish line to the week hard! Hopefully we can finish early because on Friday's our fav local restaurant does live music and pizza night where all the local expats congregate!
We're setting up different options from catamarans, zip-lining, horseback riding, or even adventuring into other parts of Nicaragua.
Slow Down Sundays
Take a moment to just chill on the beach; we're setting up beach volleyball or taking in our pool to the fullest extent. We also love to get ahead of work so that we can have more free time during the week to enjoy the surf... an awesome makeshift office from the beach... I mean, what better way to work?
Sunday is also when we have our included roundtable dinner to round off the week at our yoga deck, right after our sunset yoga class.
CHECK OUT WHAT'S INCLUDED
And in a flash, weeks 3 and 4 came and went. Birthdays were celebrated, animals took center stage (a doggo fostered, horses ridden, whales sighted), and bonds grew stronger still. Work continued, but so did play, and our time together came to a close with a very unexpected honor. Never could I have imagined how transformative a journey this month would turn out to be; how enriching the experiences; how impactful the healthy habits and newfound connections of mind, body, and soul. Until next time! #surfyogabeer #sybremote #playamaderas
The daily work commute is more fun here 🏖🧉#sybremote
It’s not unusual for me that a one-week trip turned into three weeks, and it wasn’t hard to do, considering HOW MUCH FUN this adventure was. I’m so grateful to have the ability right now to pick up and go (or stay) without having to worry about much else. I know that won’t be a forever thing, but for now, I am soaking it all in. Inspired by an action-packed, super-fun, enlightening adventure with @surfyogabeer, I dedicate this piece to all of the amazing new friends I made over the last three weeks. #SurfYogaBeer #SYBNicaragua #travel #SYBRemote #Nicaragua
Flight mode on for a little bit 📵🕊️ Time to close my eyes and scroll down in my memory mesmerizing moments from the last few weeks with the most loving beautiful souls, in a very mystic and inspiring place. Grateful to be able to escape, disconnect, reset, reflect, reconnect, recharge and feel what presence, depth and momentum truly mean. Still buzzing and floating on the clouds. Thank you @mantaszvinas @stephcurrrie for creating @surfyogabeer magic as always ✨🤍
Reflections - I am entering the year with a new outlook, in the midst of a transition period in my life. Surrounded by beautiful minds and souls, immersed in an idyllic landscape, my focus is on reconnecting, reflecting, growing. This is my duty for myself; I am open to the new. #sybremote #sybnicaragua

Fly into Liberia, Costa Rica, at Guanacaste International Airport (LIR) or Managua, Nicaragua, to Augusto C. Sandino International Airport (MGA). From there, we head to the beautiful Playa Maderas, where we will be for the duration of our time here!
San Juan del Sur is located on the island's southwest side, but just twenty minutes north, Playa Maderas boasts some of the world's most famous surfing. Playa Maderas is located on the island's Pacific side, surrounded by lush jungles to protect you from the mainland, cliff formations to the north, and other stunning beaches.
Once a tiny beach town fishing village, Playa Maderas has evolved into a peaceful and tranquil surfer's paradise.
The Cordoba is Nicaragua's currency. However, most establishments accept USD.
We suggest bringing about $300 to $400 to use at bars and a few of our dinners, but otherwise, we've got you covered! For reference, prices of alcoholic drinks range from $6 - $12 USD.
Playa Maderas has no ATMs, and most establishments will charge a 5-6% extra charge for car payments, so remember to withdraw your cash in your home country!
Playa Maderas is one of the safest regions to visit in Latin America. However, there are risks of petty crime and pickpockets - we suggest not carrying all your valuables with you.
Our accommodations will have safes for us to leave our valuables in, and we suggest leaving all important items in the safe while we are out exploring - but maybe keep your Yeezys and nice jewelry at home!
