Vitina Blumenthal colors outside the lines – she always has. Her wellness path was sparked at the age of 19 and profoundly grew when she packed her bags and set off to live in an ashram in India. Two yoga teacher trainings later and over 10 years of practice, she continues to explore the world in search of different techniques and more mindful ways for living. Vitina enjoys sharing her love of these things through her business, WanderfulSoul, all in the hopes that she will meet a tribe of others who share her passions, and perhaps she’ll inspire a few people along the way!

Aqua Wellness Resort is situated in a lush tropical forest natural setting within a private beach cove on the Nicaragua’s ‘Emerald Coast’ on the Pacific just north of Costa Rica.
A secluded and peaceful natural setting ideal for a relaxing beach holiday, yoga, meditation, and spa treatments that nourish the soul.
Aqua is only two-hours from Nicaragua’s international airport by car, or 20 minutes by helicopter.
Enjoy ocean activities like kayaking, fishing and world-class surfing. Or spend your time on the beach, hiking our area or checking out the surfer-vibe night scene at Playa Gigante next door.
Day-trips to explore colonial Granada, San Juan del Sur, or the iconic twin volcano Ometepe island are easy from the resort’s central location.
Aqua’s Tree Houses serve two purposes – The first is environmental. By building above the forest floor, we minimized the resort’s impact on the delicate ecosystem of the jungle forest.
The second purpose you’ll understand especially at sunset, while you lounge around your private deck, or soak in your plunge pool while watching the sun sink into Pacific. Perched up high in your Treehouse, with views of the ocean and green-forested hills, you are truly immersed in nature.
You will fall asleep to the tranquil waves of the ocean and wake up to the sounds of the tropics – more birds than you can imagine and perhaps a family of howler monkeys having breakfast in the trees surrounding you.
Best to fly into Augusto C. Sandino International Airport in Managua (MGA).
Aqua is only two-hours from Nicaragua’s international airport by car. Transportation to and from MGA to Aqua Wellness Resort is included in the retreat package.
The fastest way to arrive at Aqua Wellness Resort, and possibly the most scenic, is to have our staff arrange for Helicopter Transportation from Managua. This exclusive method of transportation takes only 30 minutes from Managua and provides a view of Nicaragua like no other. (Not included in price of retreat)
