fish snorkel surf
Verdad is now working closely with our friends from Pacifica Aventuras and Big Sky Ranch to curate the perfect combination of experiences for adventurers - those people that like an action packed day and don't like sitting still!
Start your day launching from Playa Ostional (about 20 minutes from us) or right here at Playa Escameca if the weather co-operates. As you head into deeper waters, the skippers will set up your fishing pole, with the hopes that you'll catch a fish or two to make ceviche later in the morning. As the boat travels along the beautiful coastline between Nicaragua and Costa Rica, guests have the chance to see the abundant wildlife that live in these waters including giant sea turtles, dolphins and even whales sometimes too!
After your morning fishing fix, we'll head to one of our secret snorkeling locations, where you'll have a chance to see a variety of sea life going about their day. The boat has one NEMO, an underwater breathing apparatus, which allows you to explore the rock reefs 10 feet below the surface without the need to come up for air. While one guest uses NEMO, others can explore the reefs with our experienced guide. Guests can also try spearfishing. When you return to the boat, we'll serve freshly made ceviche and drinks, and you can chill either on board, or an a float tethered to the boat.
As we head back, you can try wake surfing while taking in the sites, or continue trolling. We will filet anything you catch, so you can bring it back to Verdad for the chefs to prepare for your dinner.
Oh, and one surf lesson is also included in the package, because we know you want to get out on the water and shred a barrel or two! Your lesson will be taught by one of our professional coaches affiliated with La Escuelita Surf School. You'll start out up here at Verdad on land learning surf technique, then we'll head down to the beach and get you up on the waves. Our coaches are truly awesome and can help both beginners and advanced surfers alike.
This package includes one horseback riding day trip with the professional riders at Big Sky Ranch. You'll saddle up at their home base just 10 minutes north of us, and set out into the mountains...
The package also includes a canopy zip-line tour. Fly trough the mountainside just outside of the town of San Juan Del Sur with experienced guides leading the way.
We'll also take you on an amazing hike either to some hidden waterfalls if your with us when the water is bountiful, or in the dry season, we'll guide you on a hike over the rocks to Playa el Coco.
And, lastly the folks at Vivero Escameca will host you for a late afternoon at the turtle sanctuary down at the beach. You'll learn about the sea turtles that lay eggs right here and hopefully get to participate in a release of hatchlings.
A seven-night stay in our laidback luxurious ocean-view accommodations, where you'll be lulled to sleep after your active days listening to the sounds of the ocean, is included in the package, as well as a daily early-riser pre-breakfast of coffee, tea, fresh fruit, fruit juices and home-made granola, full breakfast, and dinner.
Our food philosophy at Verdad Nicaragua is centered around fueling your body properly for the week of adventures, using fresh and local ingredients, much of it grown right here in our garden. Our chefs create delicious and nutritious meals that cater to every kind of dietary need. We enjoy all of our meals family-style, either in the open-air dining area or poolside.
