Why Nicaragua and Mukul, an Auberge Resort Should Be on Your Radar

Tough decisions had to be made, like: Which pool do we swim in today? Do we go surfing, play golf or hit the spa?

Traci Ling, a photographer based in Houston never thought about vacationing in Nicaragua until a chance auction bid had her and her family dreaming of the ultimate luxurious holiday. We found her through her dreamy images she was posting to instagram and had to learn more about her Nicaraguan experience.

Why Mukul?

The year was 2015, my family was attending the annual Amschwand Sarcoma Cancer Foundation Catwalk for a Cure. We were having a good time, supporting an important cause then suddenly we realize my dear mother-in-law was the highest bidder to this paradise getaway.  The trip was ultimately gifted to myself, my husband and his sister and her husband. Kid-free vacay! 

What did you expect?

I wasn't really sure what to be expecting, but after looking up images about Mukul, Auberge Resorts Collection, it was a trip we were looking forward to. Once we arrived, we were promptly greeted with friendly and welcoming hosts who made us feel right at home. Even though "home" for those few days was a massive private villa overlooking the Pacific, complete with a private pool. With an extensive list of amenities we didn't know where to start. Tough decisions had to be made, like: "Which pool do we swim in today?" "Do we go surfing, play golf or hit the spa?" Really, the list goes on!

What was your #MukulResort experience like?

Not only is Mukul a beautiful, luxurious resort, their attentive staff went above and beyond to make our experience pleasant and unforgettable. One of the things that stood out was how genuinely happy everyone was - how could you not be happy in paradise?  I felt no negativity and you can tell the staff and surrounding communities and environment are well cared for.  All in all, the trip was beyond amazing and I cannot wait to go back to Mukul!
