We are Matt and Rachel

We are two individuals with a passion for raw beauty/potential/community/experience and empowering others. We believe in the transformative power of connection/recharging and creativity and their abilities to simplify communications, elevate experiences, and engage people. Let’s connect you to the space/experience you need.

The idea for Salt Escapes was born in 2013 when we landed on an untouched, black volcanic beach in Nicaragua and saw the potential to connect others to this serenity and authenticity.

We purchased a vacant beach lot and in 2016 an opportunity to live onsite to care for a home provided us an experience to develop the processes of operating a small hotel. We launched: intimate vacations, wellness retreats, and the Salt Lodge beach restaurant. Salt Lodge restaurant acted as a hub and transformed into a lively communal space, allowing 14 rental properties to connect. Salt Lodge united people from around the globe together and Salt Escapes was born.

How we evolved

What was a simple communal space became a community concept with a social enterprise hook. Salt Escapes is the BRIDGE that connects guests, in a remote area to Western conveniences and the Salinas Grandes community, to resources such as employment, education, and wellness opportunities.

Enjoy the pristine beauty of your escape, as we connect you with local services to enhance your experience.

Our curiosity and passion drive us to learn more about Nicaragua. With Rachel’s deep desire to empower others with their wellbeing and Matt’s ability to solve any problem; we will continue to connect and collaborate with the communities that surround us to drive impact and enhance wellbeing.
