As countries around the world begin to ease lockdowns, and airlines begin to bring flights back online, we’re looking forward to welcoming visitors from near and far back to beautiful Nicaragua.

Although the virus continues to affect large parts of the world, there are reassuring signs as many of the world's cities begin to come out of lockdown, flight paths resume and more and more businesses open up.

Before we go on, we'd just like to wish each and every person reading this strength and courage as we all try and navigate life after the coronavirus in what will become known as the 'new normal'.

A special mention of course to all of those on the frontline who have worked so selflessly keeping the rest of us safe and fed - thank you from the bottom of our hearts. PS - if anyone from the frontline is reading this, message us and we'll work out an even sweeter deal for you.

That said, let us look to the future - a future with good food, good music and even better conversation with friends old and new! Here's a little taste of what's waiting for you...

Good Vibes Only

Situated just 5 minutes from the bustling surf town of San Juan del Sur and around 15 minutes to the popular surfing beach Playa Maderas, the SPACE is the perfect place to enjoy the beautiful tropical paradise of Southern Nicaragua. Close enough to get a taste of San Juan while still remaining isolated in our lush n' large jungle setting.

The new reality means that there has never been a better time to have more space. Life after lockdown should be spent outdoors - enjoying nature, soaking up sunshine and reconnecting with our natural environment, cocktail in hand. Enjoy our premium boutique hostel experience with designer finishes, delicious local organic food & beverages, outdoor yoga deck & jungle gym circuit, two massive pools, a beach volleyball court and all the space outdoors you could wish for to enjoy a healthy and happy vacation experience. Uncrowded. Uncluttered. Come find YOUR space.

Imagine the first time your toes touch the refreshing waters of the Pacific, the cool sea breeze blowing on a body limber from morning yoga on the jungle deck. End the day with salty hair and sandy feet; sunset drinks in the pool overlooking the tropical Nicaraguan jungle as you excitedly chat about what tomorrow holds - rich with the promise of adventure and good times. Now stop imagining. This is the SPACE.

All 16 of our rooms are ensuite and, best of all, we have a range to suit all budgets - from female only or mixed dormitories (with social distancing protocols in place) to dreamy private double rooms all the way up to the luxurious Master Suites with AC, work station, chill zone and hot water. All 45% OFF!

These packages are only available by direct request and are not available on any booking engines. The SPACE is currently closed; packages are redeemable upon reopening. To book or inquire about a package please mail us.

To keep guests and employees safe and smiling, the SPACE will be implementing the latest globally recommended health and safety measures - including social distancing, additional cleaning, staff PPE and the provision of sanitizers to name but a few. Keep an eye out for a blog about all the new protocols we'll be introducing soon. We intend to lead while others follow.

For more information on our rooms, please see our 'Dream' page or checkout @thespace.sjds on Instagram to really get those juices flowing.
