Beautiful place, waking up in paradise! Vivianne arranged a very kind driver, Alex, for us from Managua airport. When we arrived we were the only two guests but the people were so helpful and patient. The cabin, we had the calibri, was very beautiful and clean, we could even drink out of the faucet! It's quite impressive what they've build...

We learned quite a bit on our hike with the tour guide from Finca Esperanza. We hiked about an hour, seeing coffee plants, a bleeding tree, howler monkeys, Blue Prince butterfly, a waterfall. Mosquitos were not an issue. We really enjoyed the sitting porch with hammocks to enjoy the views, coffee, and quiet on. Very special place to spend some...

From the 5 gorgeous hiking trails, to the gigantic organic vegetable garden and coffee plantations, to the million dollar view across a mountain range, not to mention the tropical forests teaming with exotic wildlife, this place is everything an ecolodge should be. I can't wait to return.

The Finca Esperanza Verde is a complete experience. The knowledgable and vibrant staff will provide great food, stories, and insight into the ecological majesty of Nicaragua. The Finca is especially accommodating to groups, providing a transformational retreat and a model for ecotourism.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Finca Esperanza Verde is a unique experience in ecotourism and local empowerment - part organic coffee farm - part tourist lodge. The finca sits prominently on the edge of a quiet country road at 4000 ft (1200 mts) above sea level, providing spectacular views of the Dariense mountain range and the green valley of Matagalpa far below. The farm provides local Nicaraguans with profitable and sustainable ways to share their culture with visiting tourists and has received international recognition as a model of poverty alleviation through sustainable tourism and other socially responsible programs. We have three treehouse style double cabins with private bath. Two large dorm-style cabins with two baths in each. We can accommodate a maximum of 20 guests at a time. Three large hot water showers in separate building close to main lodge. A spacious open-air pavilion for lounging, yoga, and large group gatherings. Free WiFi service in main dining room only. ... more   less
