A Latin Perch on the Pacific

Pack your bags for Central America. Mukul Beach, Golf & Spa is the country's first five-star hotel and a genuine institution on Nicaragua's shimmering Emerald Coast. You know you're in good hands when the hotelier behind the resort belongs to five generations of a family that can also lay claim to the Caribbean Pacific Transit Company and the origins and fame of Flor de Caña Rum. Immerse yourself in world-class surfing, yoga, massage, golf and on-site dining. The options at Mukul are truly endless, but in the rare event that you choose to leave the grounds, you're an easy day trip to many of the country's colonial charms and scenic overlooks.
