Nekupe Sporting Resort and Retreat is a 1,300-acre nature reserve in Nicaragua’s Pacific countryside that offers opportunities to stimulate your mind, body, and your soul. It is the vision of Don Alfredo Jr. and Dona Theresa Pellas, avid travelers and adventure enthusiasts whose commitment to nature is exhibited through the resort’s core principles of respect and stewardship of the environment.
Nekupe is located in Nandaime, the “place of abundant streams.” It is just under two hours from the Augusto C. Sandino International Airport in Managua, 30 minutes from the charming colonial city of Granada and just over an hour from the Pacific coast.
Nekupe houses an animal sanctuary with more than 158 species of plants, including more than 14,000 trees that were planted throughout the reserve. Wildlife and fauna is sustained by the reservoirs developed by a team of local experts and ecologists. The sobering aura of the grounds serves as a backdrop for a variety of recreational activities and nature appreciation.
