VIvian Lopez

The best travel itineraries are thoughtfully curated by insiders we all tap for a guide to the best of a destination. Privy to the most soothing of Mukul’s offers, spa director Vivian Lopez reveals her three perfect days at the resort. Here, the not to miss restorative experiences to find peace and balance.

Day One

3:00 PM Hot Stone Massage

With rest and relaxation top on your priority list, enjoy a warm welcome to your private villa or bohio where you can immediately relax from your long journey to Mukul. Once you’ve had the chance to unpack, venture to Spa Mukul for a recovering 90-minute hot stone massage in the ancient temple treatment room. Here, enjoy the amazing view. 

5:30 PM Sunset Beach Walk

As the massage oils settle into your body and relaxation fills your lungs, extend your meditative moment along the Mukul oceanfront. Enjoy a sunset walk along Playa Manzanillo to experience the magical colors and unrivaled scenery. 

7:30 PM Villa Relaxation  

To recover from your journey to Mukul and soak in the last sunset hours, opt for a quiet dinner in your room. Mukul’s room service will deliver a custom meal – like a Guacalito salad – to the palapa outside of your villa.


Day Two

8:00 AM Yoga

Revitalize your body with an energizing morning Vinyasa flow session at Mukul’s Yoga Pavilion, which overlooks the sparkling Emerald Coast of Nicaragua. Here, you will enjoy being surrounded by the ebb and flow of nature’s choir as you find balance in your practice.  

9:00 AM Breakfast & Biking

Beginning with a fresh breakfast at La Terraza, enjoy a wide selection of seasonal fruits and a custom green smoothie. After nourishing your body, enjoy a bicycle ride to discover the property and Playa Guacalito. Bring water and snacks for the journey, and don’t forget your camera! Find a spot along the coast to rest and soak in the view. 

2:00 PM Sushi and Cocktails

For lunch, select from a myriad of sushi rolls at Tres Ceibas like the Sakana Maki roll with fresh mahi mahi. Pair this with a refreshing cocktail like the Macualito with local Flor De Caña rum, guayaba fruit, and lime. 

4:00 PM Beachside Massage

The afternoon calls for a relaxing beachside massage. Schedule a private treatment along the oceanfront before enjoying a sunset ritual with a healing Yamuna ceremony performed by Mukul’s own spa healer. This indigenous ritual will relax your soul and prepare you for a wonderful evening rest. 

7:00 PM Dinner at La Mesa

After your treatment, join the expert chefs at La Mesa to try their spectacular tasting menu. Sit back and enjoy as the chef surprises you with the best five-course dinner with your favorite ingredients.   


Day Three

7:30 AM Rooster Breakfast

Following a comfortable night’s rest in your bohio or private villa, enjoy your morning while dining outdoors. Order the rooster breakfast: hot chocolate and warm cookies will be delivered to your door as you prepare for the day. 

9:30 PM Hammam Spa Experience

Détox your body in this Moroccan experience at Spa Mukul’s Hamman temple. Harnessing the sensual history of the Orient and its ancestral beauty traditions, enjoy a cleansing body treatment to coat you in a sublime glow of peace and euphoria. Finish your spa day with a complementary wellness lunch and a bottle of wine at La Terraza Restaurant.

3:00 PM Surf Lesson

Spend the afternoon with Mukul’s luxury surf outfitter, TropicSurf. Their coaching sessions and beginner lessons will have you surfing the best waves in the finest secluded spots around Mukul. You will leave with a feeling of adrenaline pumping through your body.

6:30 PM Private Dinner

As if to extend your spa experiences at Mukul, opt for an aromatic private dinner. Relax as the bonfire billows in the ocean breeze and live music fills the air.
