(Gracious Living 3 Day liquid feast detox is also available for those interested in taking their detox further.)
The NEW location of this retreat boasts an open beamed colonial/modern yet tropic house, just completed in the beginning of 2010 and designed so that you can enjoy the beauty of Nicaragua from every room. It sits on a bluff directly between two of the best beaches in San Juan Del Sur. From the living room you look directly out over the infinity pool on Marsella Beach and on down to Costa Rica. From the entry you have a view of the surf break at Maderas. This house truly has one of the best views of the Southern Nicaragua coast line and is one of the few high-end homes that can be found north of San Juan near the popular beaches.
