Jimmy LeSage, M.S., who founded New Life Hiking Spa in Vermont in 1978 will be running a week-long wellness getaway in Granada, Nicaragua at the Hotel Xalteva.
The Hotel Xalteva, was developed by Vermonter, Jay Snyder. Jay and his wife were the owners and innkeepers of The Landgrove Inn in Landgrove, Vermont for many years. They then decided to build Hotel Xalteva in their retirement years and now split their time between Vermont, Florida and Nicaragua.
The Hotel Xalteva is a beautiful property that is a perfect location for New Life Hiking Spa to run a winter retreat. The hotel was built in 2007 and is located in a beautiful area near hiking and a host of wellness and cultural activities.

The cost for each participant for 6 nights is $1,800 for single occupancy or $1,450 for double occupancy (two sharing a room).

Nicaragua Tour Details
Sunday, November 5 to Saturday, November 11, 2017.
The Granada, Nicaragua New Life Wellness Tour is a combination of a wellness week of outdoor adventure, relaxation and rejuvenation while exploring and amercing yourself in an up and coming travel destination. Jimmy LeSage, M.S., the founder and director of New Life Hiking Spa in Vermont, visited Nicaragua 5 years ago on a tour that was intended to recruit New Life Hiking Spa to set up a wellness retreat in Granada. He was fortunate enough to have an extensive experience of being toured throughout the country from the western Pacific to the eastern Gulf of Mexico and he knew one day it would be the perfect location for a winter retreat. In the meantime, New Life Hiking Spa has experienced significant growth, moved hotels within Vermont and became one of the most popular destination spas in America with the selection of being the #1 Spa by Travel + Leisure Magazine and subsequent coverage on the Today Show. Now, Jimmy is ready to focus on the Nicaragua Wellness Adventure that was developed five years ago and has been refined with the growth of this country that is on the cusp of the wellness tourism boom.
This tour during the first week of March 2017, will focus on the historic colonial city of Granada located on Lake Granada.
The home base for this wellness excursion is Condo Hotel Xalteva (pronounced “alteva”) and refers to the original indigenous Indians who were in Granada before the Spanish conquest. With luxury style accommodations and the only condominium-style lodging in this historic city, this beautiful property was built by fellow Vermonters and Vermont innkeepers, Jay & Kathy Snyder.
Xalteva’s Spanish colonial architecture blends in seamlessly with its surroundings while providing the comforts of a refreshing pool, and a poolside palapa bar where you will enjoy breakfast each morning. Various dinners during the week will be created and served at the hotel with fresh, local ingredients. (See weekly schedule for details).
The interior of each condo unit will also delight you with its unique layout. Each condo is has two private bedrooms with a private bath in a hotel sized room, yet each of these hotel rooms is connected with its own kitchen and living area.
With just nine units (18 hotel rooms) on the property, this cozy environment with a caring bilingual staff provides personalized service unlike anything else available in Granada. This wellness week will be limited to 12 guests.
On Jimmy’s visits to Granada, he has put together a week that will make each guest experience wellness and rejuvenation while being taken care of by seasoned pros in the nutrition, wellness, lodging and tour industry in this charming Nicaraguan town.
