A spokesperson for both Mukul Resort & Spa and Nekupe, arguably two of Nicaragua’s hottest resorts, recently reached out to Travel Agent to inform us neither resort sustained any damage following the recent passage of Tropical Storm Nate.
“Both Mukul and Nekupe are ok,” a spokesperson for the resorts told Travel Agent. “No damage to either property. Around Nicaragua, there is flooding in the streets, but not at Mukul or Nekupe, just around some towns. And trees have been blown down, but thankfully there’s still ability to drive to Managua from both resorts.”
Meanwhile, representatives of the Yemaya Island Hideaway and Spa in Nicaragua reached out to Travel Agent Friday afternoon to inform us the resort also did not sustain any damage from the recent passage of Nate.
“No damage to Yemaya, just a lot of rain,” a spokesperson for the resort told Travel Agent. “They’re fine thankfully.”
Yemaya Island Hideaway and Spa was already closed for renovations. The hotel will reopen on November 16 after an extensive refurbishment and the addition of five luxury oceanfront suites with plunge pools.
According to Reuters, at least 11 people died in Nicaragua, where thousands have had to evacuate their homes. At least eight people were killed in Costa Rica and more than 7,000 have been forced to take refuge in shelters, according to Reuters. Two people drowned in Honduras, while another was killed in a mud slide in El Salvador, according to Reuters.
