We strongly advise that you leave at least a 2-3 days buffer between the last day of the course and your flight out of Nicaragua. This gives you enough time to take a PCR test in Managua, the only location available, or make other documents that may be needed for your smooth return trip.

"Meditating in the company of Somananda is next level. My meditations are so much more deep and profound when meditating next to him. He is a beacon of light and a walking encyclopedia. I feel so grateful to have him as my guide and guru. If you want to evolve on the spiritual path you absolutely MUST meditate with Soma in person. It will forever change you."
"I have only ever done online courses up until now so the Shaktipat Retreat was my first in-person experience with Somananda. I was able to go so much higher in my meditations and achieve so much more spiritually in his presence. I definitely felt the outpouring of Grace!"
"I learned many new meditation techniques and how to meditate properly in this retreat. My relationship to the Divine became much more real and profound and I learned so much about myself. This was really an unforgettable experience."

Traveling during Covid times adds a few extra steps to your travel preparations but luckily traveling to Nicaragua is quite simple. Nicaragua has been and still is one of the countries with the least travel restrictions and requirements to date.
What is needed to enter Nicaragua:
When planning your trip, do also consider Covid requirements of your transfer countries (e.g. USA requires proof of vaccination for all transfers).
If you need a PCR test for your journey back (please check with your airline), then we strongly advise that you leave at least 2-3 days extra as a buffer between the last day of the course and your final flight out of Nicaragua. This gives you enough time to take a PCR test in Managua, the capital city of Nicaragua, and receive your results before your departing flight.
Please know that we do not have the possibility to be fully informed of the travel and transfer requirements of all the countries of the world. Your travel arrangements are foremost your responsibility. In saying that, we will be supporting all course participants with additional information after your course booking.
