New Life Hiking Spa

Nicaragua Wellness Retreat

Join New Life Hiking Spa for a Wellness Week in Nicaragua!

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.

Similar to our program in Vermont, the pricing will be all-inclusive for all food and 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).  This price includes everything – including airport transfers, taxes and amenities.
