Highs & Lows

  • Stunning view of the ocean, every sunset was a treat.

  • Size. you really feel at home, as the 6 rooms spread across two buildings. There’s a lot of room to roam and I had the pool to myself most of the time

  • Healthy food and snacks, which are hard to find outside the main cities in Nicaragua.

  • Fast WiFi, I was able to work all week uninterrupted.

  • Private jungle path to the beach, keeps you off the dusty main roads.

  • Some noisy evenings when outsiders come for dinner, if you have a room in the terrace.
