Other Surf Experiences

Fullerton (March 2015)
We spent a week at Mukul in March for our kid's Spring Break. Our 12 year old is a surfer so we are always in search of great left break in a new locale. We had high expectations for our trip and Mukul exceeded on every measure! Not only was our Beach Villa amazing, but the service and multitude of activities were spectacular! Gavin at the Surf Shack took our son's surfing to a new level. He video taped our son's various surf sessions and then took him back to the shack to review his technique. My 9 year old daughter and I really enjoyed our surf lessons with Miguel as well. The experience couldn't have been better. The restaurants are excellent. From breakfast, lunch and dinner, not a single negative. We even enjoyed an evening barbeque on the beach.

We spent one day zip lining in the cloud forest, hiking Mambacho Volcano, touring Granada and boating on Lake Nicaragua. Our guide taught us so much about the country. His knowledge of his country and his English were top shelf. He enthusiastically relayed his love of country and desire for tourists to share in that love.
Don't miss yoga with Juan Carlos each morning. He is a real pro. A must is the Flor de Cana rum tasting on site. We learned about this amazing aged rum and the history of the Pellas family. From our view, Carlos Pellas has raised the quality of Nicaraguan life and will continue to do so. What an amazing man!
We enjoyed playing golf, tennis and relaxing by the main pool and our private villa pool. We've been home almost a month and are still glowing from our fabulous trip. Thank you Mukul!

The Secret is out; Mukul is hands down the best luxury resort we have ever had the pleasure to experience!
From the moment we arrived and where personally greeted by Adriana to the moment we departed with a final Macua Flora de Cana cocktail, we felt at home in this magnificent resort.
We would like to personally express our sincere thanks to the entire staff at Mukul for making our experience everlasting. The team seem to anticipate our every move, accommodated our requests and add a special touch to each experience.
To say that the location of the resort, accommodations and amenities are world class would not do them justice. This is truly an authentic Nicaraguan experience, from the furniture, to the artwork, to the stories told by staff, to the ocean rhythm, to the flavourful culinary experience...everything screamed original and authentic.
In the short 3 days at Mukul we filled our days experiencing all the resort has to offer, Spa treatments, Golf at sunrise, surfing the waves, enjoying the culinary delights and most importantly relaxing and bathing in the essence of Mukul.
Our highlight of the visit was to get to meet Sr. Carlos Pellas, his wife and son. Please extend our sincere thanks for their hospitality and our gratitude for the lovely bottle of Champagne we enjoyed for our 15 year wedding anniversary, very special memory that we will cherish.
We plan a return over Thanksgiving and will bring an entourage of family and friends to share in the Secret of Mukul.
