My husband and I had a wonderful time at Finca Del Sol. The Cabins are amazing, and make you feel like home. They are a great spot to chill out, hang in the hammock, sit in the lounge chairs and watch the volcano! Also, the firefly show at night is amazing! The breakfast is so delicious, its as fresh as...

We can't say enough good things about our stay at Finca del Sol. Sheri and Christiano have done an amazing job at their sustainable farm and B&B. They made us feel so at home and the Bamboo lodge is such a great cabin. It was extremely peaceful as you really feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. The... More

We stayed 3 nights at the smallest cabin of Finca del Sol. A cabin with a beautifull view on the Vulcano, however the 2 other 2 cabins might even have a better view. The many windows in the cabin make you wake up with this nice view, if you don't want that you can close them. I read an earlier... More

Unique cabin. Great experience. Amazing wildlife. We very much enjoyed the outdoor jungle creatures. Great views of volcano and night fireflies. Take a torch. Not for people with bug phobias! Great stay with kind hosts. Sherri organised our trips and was very helpful. Vegetarian breakfasts were delicious.

We stayed in the Bamboo lodge at the Finca del Sol. It lies in the middle of nature so one shouldn't be afraid of some insect, spider or other small creature to feel at ease.

How great to find a place where you can really connect with nature, tranquility and a bunch of all sorts of animals (and I mean ALL sorts). This is because the owners Sheri and Cristiano not only have a small B&B but also run the very large place as an eco farm. So please: if you're hooked on your 24/7... More

We spent a memorable four nights here with four teenage children at the start of our Nicaraguan holiday, and had two cabins about 100m apart - both lovely. The larger Bamboo cabin had a particularly lovely (and constantly changing) view of Concepcion volcano, more sitting space outside, and also a more luxurious and stylish eco-bathroom. Good mosquito nets meant that... More

Friendly people, great food, great accommodations, did I mention friendly people? The value you will get by staying a few days on the property is priceless.
