This was our second stay with Gabriela and James at Equilibrio. We visited with 9 college students to conduct a service-learning study abroad program. To say that this was a life-changing experience would not do our time in Las Salinas justice. James and Gabriela not only offer an amazing place to stay, but they are also well respected in the...

I just returned from my 5th visit to Equilibrio and my 4th time with university health and education students. Equilibrio provides safe, relaxing and beautiful lodging, delicious and healthy food and a well-orchestrated number of service learning opportunities in the school, health posts and the community. Gabriela is well connected to the community and our students come home with new...

If you have the opportunity to stay at Equilibrio, you must go! As everyone else has mentioned, James and Gabriella are just a rad couple. They, along with their helpful staff, made sure that every one of our needs were taken care of. They are well respected by the locals, and as their guests, we were welcomed liked family when...

Equilibrio is an idyllic paradise. It is tucked away in the jungle, next to a river within a short paddleboard ride to the beautiful bech and Paciufic Ocean. The casitias are spacious and open (fully screened so no bugs!) The outdoor shower is wonderful and private. You can spend your days swinging in a hammock, taking a walk to the...

Equilibrio is a lovely, magical place---- great fun and very comfortable. The casitas, with outdoor showers, are very spacious; the food is great, and there are many things to do, besides the Pilates included in my retreat.. There are all sorts of possibilities for enjoying the adjacent river, and there is a nearby ocean beach for swimming, walking, sunbathing, or...

I brought a group of 13 people for a Pilates and MELT retreat. I had never been to Nicaragua and took a chance on Equilibrio based on all of the positive reviews. Our experience was over the top fabulous. The casitas, the hangatorium, the temescal, everything surpassed my expectations. But what really made our visit unique was the care and...

Equilibrio is a unique and wonderful experience. We stayed for nearly 3 weeks and enjoyed every moment.  The place is all you want, if you like to: relax, be in nature, make music, make art, practice yoga, spend time with wonderful people, be on your own to regenerate, enjoy lovely food, go surfing on the beautiful beach down the river,...

I was so pleased to find Equilibrio on my solo travels through Nicaragua a few months ago, it was the perfect secluded reprieve on the most amazing stretch of Pacific coastline. The place (and it's owners) inspire creativity and reflection with miles of walking trails, fruit orchards, peaceful paddles down a bird-filled estuary, yoga classes, wide open beach jogs, and...

Equilibrio is set up mainly to receive retreat groups, and I was here in February as part of a yoga retreat. I was expecting this simply to be the background to my yoga experience - but it was so much more. Equilibrio is the unique brainchild of owners James and Gabriela. They have transformed this piece of former farmland into...

My girlfriend and I spent 4 days here on a yoga retreat and had the best time. The food was outstanding, especially the breakfast which has healthy but hearty and delicious. Our room was amazing too: an enormous hut set on its own plot of land with an outdoor shower. There are mosquito nets instead of windows so the wind...
