The Magic of Mukul

For people in most parts of the United States, the month of February truly represents the dog days of winter. The winter holidays are far behind and the mild spring weather just can’t seem to come soon enough.. If you haven’t had the chance to escape the ice and wind or are scratching your head about a spring break, this warm and relaxing spot may be just the ticket.

Mukul is a brand new hotel and spa located in Guacalito de las Isla, Nicaragua. The resort opened at the beginning of February and is in many ways the crown jewel of the burgeoning real estate boom in Nicaragua. Mukul is the vision of Don Carlos Pellas, a developer whose family has deep historical ties with the Central American country. Mukul’s mixture of luxury and sustainability are going to be, as Pellas says, “a game changer for Nicaragua.”

In order to do justice to Mr. Pellas’ hard work and planning, the Manual put together a slideshow of some of Mukul’s highlights, which should be convincing enough for you to get clicking and start day dreaming.

Want to climb to the top of the world? Here’s how long it takes to climb Mount Everest
How long does an ascent of Mount Everest really take?

The prospect of standing on top of the world has lured thousands of mountain climbers to Mount Everest since the first successful attempt by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay 70 years ago. Commercial expeditions began in the 1990s, and since then — not counting the 2015 season disrupted by the catastrophic earthquake or the recent Covid-affected seasons — the number of climbers has increased dramatically.

Climbing Mount Everest may be popular, but the difficulty of reaching the highest point on earth should not be underplayed. Ignoring the hefty price tag associated with an Everest expedition, there's the sheer physical exertion of climbing to that altitude. Unless you plan to recreate Killian Jornet's feat of summiting twice in one week without supplementary oxygen — don't try this — then you'll need to set aside serious time for your ascent to the top of the world. So exactly, how long does it take to climb Mount Everest?
