Located on the Pacific coast of Isla los Brasiles in Nicaragua, the lodge is a beachfront Eco-resort, a natural building school and a workshops/retreat platform. Following the principles of permaculture, Carpe Diem was built over the last 4 years by over 500 international volunteers from our natural building school. Over 90% of building structures were built with natural or recycled materials. We are solar powered and use water directly from man-made wells on site. Half of the 1 hectare piece of land is forested and serves as a camping area and fruit farm, while the front is a stunning sunny area where guests can enjoy the main community space. Compost toilets and showers are scattered throughout the premises for your convenience.​ 

Apart from acquiring important natural building techniques, guests and volunteers can enjoy activities such as sunset volleyball, surfing, horseback riding, yoga, acro yoga meditation, flow arts and a variety of workshops etc. We also also dance our butts off and drop into ceremonies when appropriate.
