Mindful Monday: Mukul Beach, Golf & Spa

Opened in 2013, the Makul Beach Golf & Spa is what some might consider a “mystical paradise.”  Named for the Mayan word “secret”, the award-winning property is located on the stunning Emerald Coast of Nicaragua–a 30-mile stretch of Pacific shoreline featuring pristine jungles, rising cliffs, charming fishing villages, historic colonial architecture and untouched sandy beaches. Comprised of 37 spacious, freestanding accommodations, each complete with an ocean view, pool and private staff, their Spa offers truly spectacular luxury wellness programs unlike any other in the world.
