We had a wonderful time -- it's beautiful and serene. It's a magical place -- food, sights, and people are all incredible. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. If you want a place to relax and feel connected to Nicaragua this place is it!

A magical place, authentic and with a real purpose to run an ecological business in close interaction with the local community. Vivianne manages the ecolodge with love, good taste and without pretension. This is ecotourism at its very best. A must visit in Nicaragua!

We are a small group of six people who had worked in Matagalpa for a week. Our treat for the trip was to go to the finca for the weekend. Just like in past years everything was great. I'm the group leader, and many people in the group this year were new to Nicaragua, so it was a pleasure for me to be able to take them somewhere that everyone loved. We hope to return next year.

Room Tip: No tips needed - all the rooms are very nice.

I feel so lucky that I was able to visit Finca Esperanza Verde. The hummingbirds were out-of this world. The violet sabrewing and long tailed hermit! The trails are well-maintained and marked so you can walk by yourself or go with the the great guides that have eagle eyes, good knowledge and are very kind. I loved seeing sloths (and their babies) as well as several colorful birds I had never seen before.
I was in Nicaragua for some volunteer activities and this was the perfect respite. So beautiful, relaxing and nurturing. It was a little more expensive than the super cheap dorms and volunteer housing I was staying in, but I am so glad I chose to treat myself. I really felt refreshed. I can't recommend it enough.
Furthermore, staying here supports a great effort to protect a fragile environment and provide local employment with positive values.
I plan to return with friends and family as soon as possible.

Room Tip: I stayed in the "dorm" which was the most beautiful private room and bath with porch in the garden area. I loved it! All the accommodations looked great though - you really can't go wrong here.

This was a really unbelievable stay. Well worth the price. run by, and managed, at the highest Western standards. Beautiful views. Fantastic food. Excellent guiding. I have met quite a few expats who make this place as their second home when it is too hot in Center Nicaragua. And I totally understand why, gorgeous Place, relaxing, fun, excellent services. We were there on our honeymoon in addition to many other places and this was one of her favorites. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: colibri rooms #3 or #4 are the highest- and the best sweeping views!
