It's the second year of bringing students to Nicaragua and El Coco Loco knocked it out of the ballpark from beginning to end. It's a long 3.5 hour trek from the airport to get there but worth every minute. They take care of every detail so you can fully focus on your students. There is no air conditioning, no wifi...

Well, what can we say. Husband and Wife trip went incredibly right. These guys have really nailed down the hospitality and service side of things. We rented a room at the beach house for almost 10 days but it flew by like 5. We previously arranged a pick-up from the airport which was a 2 AM landing. The driver was...

I have just returned from 7 days at El Coco Loco, and I can't say enough about this very special place. I was there for a Yoga/Surf Retreat and it was so much more. The location is quite a ways from Managua airport (3.5-4 hrs depending on traffic), but SO worth it. I arrived at 11pm into Managua and they...

If you enjoy surfing, fantastic food and warm hospitality, then El Coco Loco is for you. The owners and staff do a wonderful job of making you feel right at home. The location is off the beaten path but it is the perfect location to completely disconnect from your everyday life. The yoga studio has amazing views of the grounds...

I've stayed here twice and highly recommend it to adventurous folks looking for an off-the-beaten-path stay. The surfing is great a 10-minute walk away, with a swimming beach in front of the property. Whatever activities you decide to do, you are going to be hungry and the food is delicious, as well as healthy and features some local dishes, too....

In mid-November, a group of 15 friends from across the world made the treck to Nicaragua for a week long stint at El Coco Loco. We had heard so many great things about the resort but all the compliments and hype we heard did not do this utopia justice. From the moment we landed in Managua, to the moment we...

El Coco Loco is off the beaten path but worth it. The people who live there make sure you are taken care of. The huts have ceiling fans and individual fans. The shower is enclosed and private. The accommodations are very comfortable. The beach is just a stones throw and you can hear the waves at night. The path is...

Everything was ok. It just depends on your quality of mind and what you are expecting. I wasn't expecting to be fully into nature and living in a hut with no ac so you get what you get. Once I was there I couldn't change anything.I just wish I fully knew what I was getting into. I expected to be...

I did my YTT 200 hour here with Radiant Life Yoga School. It was one of the greatest experiences I've had, travelling or otherwise. The combination of beautiful surroundings, amazing accommodation and excellent food made it such an amazing time for me. But mostly it was the people who run and work here. We were constantly supported during the training...
