The Finca was incredible. It was so much more than we expected. Sunning views, awesome hikes and delicious food. The staff was also wonderful. The fresh mountain water is so delicious and such a luxury after drinking only bottled up until this stop. We were there during the dry season and could see sloths, interesting air plants, giant rodents and toucans! We even heard the howler monkeys during a hike on the last day there. We would go back in a heartbeat and stay even longer, this was definitely the highlight of our trip to Nicaragua.

Our Rotary Group visited Finca Esperanza Verde for a a meal, a coffee tour, birdwatching, and a walk. We've been there several times before and we keep coming back (and will do so again). We highly recommend FEV!

In a remote corner of a far-away land there is a surprisingly beautiful place called, Finca Esperanza Verde. How this ecolodge came to be developed is a bit like a fairy tale. It involves the US war against the Contras, wealthy landowners who mistreated their native land, and a couple of American ex-Peace Corps volunteers who did the right thing. But I'll leave the details to someone else. What you need to know is that to stay at FEV is to indulge the senses. It's an outdoor vacation in a spa-like setting. Hike the many trails, splash in the waterfalls, marvel at the hummingbirds just inches away from you. You will walk through coffee plantations under the shade of banana trees and strangler figs. Listen for the howler monkeys. Relax. The sunsets complete the tropical paradise.

Everything here was top-notch, from the location, to the staff, to the food. I loved my stay and would highly recommend it to anyone who is hoping for some peace and tranquillity. Guided hikes were valuable for sloth spotting as well as bird watching - those guides can see things miles away.
Thanks for a great stay everyone!!!!

This is a beautiful finca built on love of the land and the people. You can just feel it. You do need a 4 wheel drive to comfortably get there but well worth the trip. The food is divine. All grown in their garden and freshly picked. Birders will be overwhelmed with the variety of birds. The trails are fantastic. Range from relatively easy to challenging. I recommend to go with a guide as you will see many birds, sloths and monkeys that you may otherwise miss. Don't forget to watch the Milky Way at night. Spectacular!

Room Tip: Any of the cabins are great. You have privacy in all of them.
