With fresh, sustainable, and organic ingredients grown or raised right on the property, you can expect to indulge in an unparalleled farm-to-table dining experience during your stay in Nicaragua.

Visit Lauren Fisher's Family Home

Lauren's family has recently built a home in the hills of Rancho Santana, and she's excited to invite you for a farewell dinner at Casa Linda, named after her mom, on the last night where nothing is spared. Enjoy a private chef, DJ, pool time, and whatever else you can think of.

Fitness For All Levels

We call it a fitness retreat, but don’t worry—regardless of your current fitness and skill level, you'll be just fine to partake. Team Invictus will be coaching the workouts and will ensure you fit right in. Despite these elite-level athletes coaching and participating, you should not be discouraged from joining. This trip is for all walks of life and all levels of fitness.

You can expect workouts in gyms and on the beach. We will also be active through various activities, so there will be plenty of opportunities to stay fit.

Please note that proper gym access is limited in Nicaragua. If you're seeking in-depth technique and skill work specific to CrossFit or weightlifting, we recommend exploring one of our other retreats.

Is This Trip Right For You?

If you're looking for a non-traditional travel experience with a fun group of people, then this retreat is perfect for you! While we will prioritize fitness and physical activity, we will recognize the importance of a slower pace and a deeper connection to health and relaxation.

We are committed to providing you with a memorable and enjoyable experience that you'll cherish for years to come!

Whether you're traveling solo, with friends, or as a couple, we always have a mix of individuals on our trips, so you'll have no trouble fitting right in.

If you're still unsure, don't worry – click on 'contact' in the menu to get in touch with us and we'll be happy to help answer any questions you may have. We want to make sure you're comfortable and excited to join us on this unforgettable trip!

Absolutely! We actually encourage arriving a day early to allow you time to settle in, adjust to the time difference, and ensure that in case of travel delays, you won't miss any part of the retreat.

If you're interested in arriving early or extending your stay, please contact us at, and we'll assist you with the arrangements.


Flights are not included as our guests travel from all around the world. This approach gives you the freedom to select the flight that best fits your schedule and preferences. However, from the moment you arrive, we take over – handling all transfers from the airport to the hotel, ensuring a stress free experience for you. Once the retreat is done, we'll of course take you back to the airport.

Absolutely, we provide airport transportation. We'll arrange both your pickup and drop-off at the airport. Before your trip, we'll contact you to collect your flight details, ensuring we're there to welcome you upon your arrival.

Managua (MGA) is the closest airport, located about 2 hours from the resort. We will have water and snacks ready for you for this journey, during which you can expect to see a mix of city life and the farmland of Nicaragua.

If flights to Managua (MGA) are not well-suited for your travel plans, you might consider flying into Liberia (LIR) instead. However, please note that Liberia (LIR) is in Costa Rica and will involve crossing the border between the two countries. This journey takes about 3 hours and 30 minutes, and we will, of course, be there to pick you up at the airport should you choose this option.

After you sign up, we will contact you with exact instructions on how we'll meet you upon your arrival.


You can find an outline of what to expect further up on this page. As the date approaches, we will share more detailed information with everyone who has signed up. We promise you won't be disappointed!

The itinerary might change slightly, but we will of course keep you updated in such case.

If you have any questions at any time, please don't hesitate to contact us at

You are most certainly allowed to do your own thing! We understand that you may not want to be around everyone 24/7 so if you find yourself needing a break, not wanting to workout or join us on an experience, just let us know. We will always give you options to follow our plan or just do your own thing, it's completely up to you.


We typically do a mix of HIIT workouts and strength training.

We will utilize the gym connected to Rancho Santana, where we have reserved two private sessions. Additionally, we will do one or two outdoor workouts at the resort.

What all the sessions have in common is their adaptability to suit your fitness level. So, there's no need to feel intimidated or discouraged by the workouts. It is all about having a great time, stay healthy, and most importantly, have fun.

YES! There will be modifications for all fitness levels, and participation in any activity is entirely up to you. 

Across all sessions we have the flexibility to accommodate your fitness level, ensuring no one feels out of place. There's no need to worry about the intensity or difficulty of the workouts. Our primary aim is for you to have an enjoyable experience.

Not at all! This retreat is for all levels, ages, and genders. No prior experience is necessary! The main goal is for you to ENJOY YOURSELF! We will cater to everyone who participates, and we will scale each workout to your ability so everyone can join. We will have plenty of staff to accommodate exactly what you need.


INCREDIBLE! What all our retreats have in common is our commitment to providing an excellent dining experience. We aim to deliver a blend of local cuisine with a diverse selection of other foods, ensuring a mix of flavors and experiences throughout your trip.

If you have any dietary restrictions, rest assured, we will make every effort to accommodate them. After securing your spot, we'll send a questionnaire to gather information about your food preferences and any allergies you might have.

Of course! If you’re looking to enjoy some drinks at the hotel or explore the local nightlife, we've got you covered. We'll provide suggestions and help set you on your way.

Additionally, on select evenings, an alcoholic beverage will be included with your dinner. And of course, we always organize a goodbye party towards the end of the trip, allowing us all to enjoy a night out together.


You must be 18 years. Certain exceptions may apply. Reach out to for more information.

The typical age range of our participants is 25-50 years old. However, we warmly welcome everyone, regardless of age. We've had many guests outside this range, including our oldest participant to date at 68 years old, who thoroughly enjoyed the retreat.

We've found that 20 participants is the ideal number for creating a personalized and fun experience. On certain retreats we might go slightly over and others we will try to stay under. Each retreat is supported by at least 2 coaches or staff members, and we often include additional team members as necessary to ensure everyone receives the attention and guidance they need.

Yes, about 4-6 weeks before the trip, we create a WhatsApp group. Here, you can greet your fellow retreat participants and introduce yourself. It's an exciting time, allowing you to see who else is going, with friendships often starting to form even before we all meet in person.

It's entirely your choice. We use WhatsApp for communication before and during the retreat. WhatsApp needs an internet connection to work, but our hotel and most places we visit offer free Wi-Fi, allowing you to quickly and easily connect to the internet at no extra cost.

No, we don't provide travel insurance. We HIGHLY suggest you make sure you are either covered by your current insurance or get a specific travel insurance.

In short, yes, Nicaragua is a safe place to visit, especially in areas popular with tourists, like the ones we'll be exploring. We will be staying at Rancho Santana, an enclosed resort with 24/7 security, known as one of the safest communities in the country. For our two day trips outside the resort, we will be accompanied by local guides and will only visit regular tourist spots that are well-populated and safe.

However, like any travel destination, it's important to stay informed about your surroundings and mindful of safety precautions.
