- How do I book with Yoga In Nicaragua or Balta Varna?
- How do I get there?
There are many airlines offering flights to and from Managua International Airport (MGA). American Airlines, Delta Airlines, Spirit, United, TACA, COPA. Recently opened Costa Esmeralda Airport , (ECI) is located just 30 minute drive from our location. If you’d like to arrange a flight there via Costa Rica’s San Jose or Liberia international airports you can do so. This is a great option for those making less expensive connections thru CR, often a larger hub into Central America.
If you need help finding the best deal please just write us an email and we will gladly help you.
Your pickup can be organized for you and is typically included when participating in a Retreat of All Inclusive vacation rental.
