Nicaragua is better known for its fine rum and cigars than for its rarefied resorts. But with the February opening of Mukul (www.mukulresort.com), the Central American country has found a worthy complement to its natural beauty. The brainchild of Carlos Pellas—owner of Nicaragua’s Flor de Caña rum—the resort sits on a glorious stretch of beach bordered by jungle-covered promontories. A David McLay Kidd golf course cuts through the forest behind the hotel, which hosts guests in 23 tree house–like bohios, 12 beach villas, and the Pellas family’s six-bedroom home. All units offer easy access to Mukul’s four miles of Pacific coastline—home to world-class surf breaks—as well as to a network of hiking trails. After a day of adventure, enjoy Nicaragua’s finest selections in the resort’s rum and cigar rooms.
