What originally started as us seeking meaningful lives, to run a tourism based business, has turned into something bigger than expected.
The dream was to run a small hotel on the beach. Live simple lives. Over the years we have made deep and meaningful connections with our staff and this community. Our WHY has drastically shifted.
We didn’t know what it would look like but we knew that together, we wanted to create a business, one that would offer something special. We came up with the name Salt Escapes. (The story behind the name).
We are 3 best friends from Toronto, Canada, in 2013 we found a near deserted stretch of beach in Nicaragua. We now want to share that piece of paradise in Salinas Grandes, Nicaragua with you.
Mark and Matt have past chef careers and Rachel ran a massage therapy and Doula/Labour support practice back home, in Canada. We combined our skills to create a life driven by passion to serve others.
Moved to a new country, opened a business, learned a new language and now - managing vacation homes, serving tasty meals in our beach side restaurant and running wellness & fitness retreats. Our small idea of a beach hotel has transformed into offering something to pretty much anyone looking to disconnect & recharge. Solo traveler, group vacation or family getaway, Salt Escapes aims to create unique vacations. But the real WHY......
... behind what we are doing this - is all about our staff and this community.
We have realized by living here that access to opportunity is hard to find. Our WHY is now about education, empowering and inspiring our staff. We continue to expand and grow our business with one idea in mind – keep providing jobs and teaching new skills to those hungry to learn. Get to know the heart of our business and meet our staff.
Salinas Grandes and this community has enriched our lives in ways we never imagined.
We can't wait for you to discovered this incredible place!
