New Years Eve 2023
New Years Eve 2023
Your flight needs to arrive before 2pm at Managua International Airport to make the SYB bus transfer to Playa Maderas from Managua; it's about a 2 1/2 hour drive.
We'll get to know each other and our amazing location. Dinner is served at 9pm, dancing is rampant, lights go low, and the disco balls come out. Where this night takes you is your story. This is just day 1.
WORKOUT AND SURF
Get ready to experience SYB to its fullest. We begin with wake-up calls, more on this later, and go straight into morning workouts, beach games, a dip in the ocean to clean up, and a hearty breakfast, all before it's even 9am.
We'll take a chill moment to soak everything by the pool and later head to the beach for surf lessons, tacos, a cold beer, and many good laughs with your new friends. Save some energy for an epic sunset yoga session and then to our open bar happy hour by the pool!
This is the night we head into town for dinner. Bring your dancing shoes, or wait, it's a beach town; shoes are unnecessary!
SURF YOGA BEER
Similar to yesterday, just different workouts. After breakfast, we walk down the beach to our surf lessons part two. Today we focus on surfing, standup paddleboarding, and anything water-related! Options for a more serious workout include a group trail run and circuit training at the jungle gym.
We head back to our house yoga deck overlooking that same ocean and enjoy a sunset yoga session. This is where the magic happens. Some of us will probably just enjoy the sunset with delicious drinks in hand.
We'll be visiting SJDS today, where we'll explore the famous Jesus statue and local shops, and dinner will be on your own in town.
We take in a full morning of workouts, then make our way to the marina for a day on a catamaran. This is truly one of the highlights of this trip as we head to a white sand beach to snorkel, enjoy fresh food on the boat and enjoy drinks sailing into the sunset.
Dinner will be at our spot. Believe us, we've earned this grub today!
Sleep in, friends; we know last night was crazy. We'll start the day at 10am. But once we start, we don't stop - morning workouts, surf, pool time, sunset viewing deck yoga, and for our last night of 2022, we have a few surprises!
We'll wake up to a new year and new habits! We'll give you some time to recover but then straight into our workouts, yoga, and saltwater ocean therapy! We'll do some life reflection exercises to help set the right path for a new year!
As the sun drops, we pull out the yoga mats to stretch our sore bodies and take our practice to a deeper level...this is where the magic truly happens.
This is our last night, so we'll do our awards, feast together, and take it out with a bang!
BACK TO REALITY
Everyone will be checking out at 8am and taking the SYB van to Managua airport, so choose a departure flight after noon.
Until next time... or until we throw our next party because this friendship just started!

Can You Handle It?
The trip officially starts 6pm on Dec 27th. Don't worry we provide a few transportation shuttles to our villas!
We recommend you fly into Managua Airport (Augusto Cesar Sandino International Airport, MGA). A second option is Liberia, Costa Rica. We'll set up transportation shuttles according to where most people fly into. Alternatively, we can connect you with trusted transportation services, they cost around $125-$200 per vehicle up to 4 people.
These are subject to change as we'll calculate everyone's flight times to make the best transfer schedule.
Departure is the same, we'll find out where most peoples flights are and take it from there!
We'll ask you 4-weeks prior to the trip to 'check-in' within the booking account where we collect your flight info, passport info, etc.
To enter Nicaragua you are required to show a negative PCR test.
We're taking over several hotels in Playa Maderas, Nicaragua. This is a remote beach town about 20 minutes away from San Juan Del Sur the closest port town.
Selina Maderas (Maderas 200mts north of Empalme Marsella San Juan del Sur, 48600, Nicaragua)
Villas Playa Maderas (10 Km north, San Juan del Sur 48600, Nicaragua)
We'll be doing some adventures throughout this trip that require a bit of self awareness of the surrounding area. Remember this is the jungle.
Dehydration is a common cause of feeling unwell. We require everyone to bring their own refillable water bottle and drink lots of water.
Avoid drinking too much alcohol. Of course you will want to enjoy a few beers and try some of the local rum around the first night, however don't make yourself a liability. Nobody wants to have to look after a drunk person. Tropical hangovers are a nightmare and you don't want to miss out on the day activities if you are trying to recover from the night before!
Your skin will burn easily in the tropics especially ya'll winter hybernating New Yorkers. Get the proper gear, and protection!
There has been no incidents that we've heard of or come across that would have us concerned. You are safe in the area and very safe if you stay with us, our accommodation is very secure and has several guards working 24/7.
DO NOT FLUSH ANY PRODUCTS, INCLUDING PAPER, DOWN THE TOILETS.
This is a third world country and the sewage is not the same as the US. There are waste baskets next to bathrooms, please use those.
This is a tropical beach adventure, not a yoga retreat or luxury travel experience. But our property is very beautiful with very comfortable and clean rooms. As we're in the middle of the jungle you'll have to keep an eye out for bugs, and spiders. As long as you keep the doors shut you should be good.
Almost everyday you can expect morning workouts, sunset yoga, beach run throughs, and fitness games. We'll be pairing that with big group dinners, nights out in town, and lots of dancing! You can always take it at your own pace, skip workouts or adventures and stay back at the house.
If you have an open mind and a sense of adventure we believe you can easily handle this adventure!
