While there is no shortage of fast-paced activity in Nicaragua, many of the visitors and full-time residents at places like the Gran Pacifica are eager to unwind and enjoy a slower way of life. Thankfully, there are a variety of ways to do just that, whether you are in Nicaragua for a few days or a few months.
1. Walk on the Beach at Sunrise
If you are an early riser, one of the best ways to see Nicaragua's absolute beauty is at sunrise. With a home or a condo right on the beach, you can step outside onto the sand in seconds and take in the breathtaking beauty of the sun rising over the horizon. Free from crowds and truly peaceful, this is one of the best ways to start the day.
2. Take a Yoga Class Outdoors
Yoga is a popular pastime in Nicaragua, and it helps participants to feel centered and rejuvenated while also providing flexibility and strength. Although many people practice yoga in an indoor studio, in Nicaragua, you can set your mat up outdoors year-round. With a view of the ocean and your feet in the sand, yoga can take on a whole new level of relaxation.
3. Sip Cocktails Overlooking the Ocean
Whether your day consists of work, socializing or just reclining on the beach, nothing caps it off better than with a drink at sunset. As the sun lowers over the ocean, the best place to be is at a poolside or waterfront cafe or bar. Whether your drink of choice is a glass of wine, a cocktail or a freshly-squeezed tropical juice, the experience will be one that you won't soon forget.
4. Try Horseback Riding or Golfing
While both horseback riding and golfing can be physically demanding in some situations, they can also be a great tool for relaxation. At Gran Pacifica, there are stables and instructors for horseback riding, and you can take a slow, easy ride on a tame horse along the water for a blissful afternoon. If the green is more your style, unwind by practicing your putting or teeing off for a full 18 holes, complete with golf cart rental.
5. Unwind in the Steam Room or Sauna
For many individuals, a spa experience is the ultimate way to unwind and feel refreshed. At Gran Pacifica, there are amenities that recreate the spa experience without the need for high costs or setting up appointments in advance. Head to the steam room or the sauna onsite in order to sweat out the day and feel ready to tackle the next activity on your itinerary.
