Nekupe, Nicaragua // March 8-12, 2018



Leadership? Success? Building an inspirational life, business, career?
Creating a legacy for those you care about?


It all starts with you.

Consider that your external world is a reflection of your ‘inner core’:
your beliefs, values, thoughts, emotions and behaviour.

Changing your external environment (eg. your job, home, lifestyle, relationships)
is a temporary fix at best.


To create lasting change – to shape a life that inspires you and those
around you every day – necessitates strengthening your inner core. 

For many of us, doing this work is confronting, challenging – just plain scary. Yet history has proven again and again that ‘greatness’ comes from within – without exception.

We invite you to join us for what promises to be the journey of a lifetime. Celebrate your potential with a select group of people who share your belief in and commitment to a higher purpose in this life: inspiring ourselves and others to become the greatest version of themselves the world will ever know.

Become a leader without a title.


Nekupe Sporting Resort and Retreat is a 1,800-acre private nature reserve in Nicaragua’s Pacific countryside that offers opportunities to stimulate your mind, your body and your soul. It is the vision of renowned Nicaraguan philanthropists Don Alfredo Jr. and Doña Theresa Pellas, avid travelers and adventure enthusiasts whose commitment to nature is exhibited through the resort’s core principles of respect and stewardship of the environment.


This sanctuary is located in Nandaime, the “place of abundant streams.” It is just under two hours from the Augusto C. Sandino International Airport in Managua, 30 minutes from the charming colonial city of Granada and just over an hour from the Pacific Coast.

Nekupe also houses an animal sanctuary with more than 158 species of plants, including more than 14,000 trees that were planted throughout the reserve. Wildlife and fauna is sustained by the reservoirs developed by a team of local experts and ecologists. The sobering aura of the grounds serves as a backdrop for a variety of recreational activities and nature appreciation.
