We welcomed the famous artist Carlos Morales to the camp in order to add two new murals to our walls! One for the hostel side and one for the beachfront yoga deck, resort side. Many have asked us over the year why we hadn’t put anything on the walls, and our answer was always “we haven’t found the right idea and or person to do something yet.” We were afraid to take away from the natural beauty of the beach, our town and Nicaragua, so it was important to us to find the right fit – in idea, person and style. And we found it!
The goal for both murals was to have a reflection of what you would be seeing if the wall was not there. Thus for the yoga deck, you see the mountain, waves and beach landscape and for the hostel you see the three surf breaks we frequent in El Transito and a few sea creatures!
Thank you Carlos – your work is amazing and we hope to have you back in the future to do some more! You can see more of his work at Universal Studios in Orlando, FL!
