San Juan Del Sur bed and breakfast description

My name is Blue and as owner/operator I invite you to join us for a few days at the ranch to experience rural Nicaragua in style.

Rancho Chilamate is known for our horseback riding tours but wouldn’t it just be awesome to come back from a ride, jump in the pool, grab a beer and sit down for a big ranch style dinner with incredible food and people? We thought so.

Rancho Chilamate just opened up the Hacienda for overnight stays this year. The rooms are full of rustic charm with incredibly comfortable beds, large en suite bathrooms with our signature cowboy showers.

By nature, the ranch is a small, private hideaway ~ a retreat of sorts. All four guests rooms have large ensuite bathrooms and the rooms in the main hacienda access the pool deck through large french doors. We serve a Cowboy Ranch Style Meals which is included in the per person rate per day ~ served up family style at the ‘Big Table’. This includes wine, beer and ‘cocktail’ hour before dinner as well.

The VRBO listing is for El Nido, a room featuring a double bunk bed, private deck and infamous jungle shower. Sleeps up to 4 persons.

The overnight stay rate is $55-65 per person per day inclusive of food, lodging and tax.

If you like the thought of waking up to the gentle roar of howler monkeys and stargazing under an endless sky before you turn in for the night, if cold beer and gourmet food make your mouth water, if you like to meet new people, walk down to the barn to collect eggs or go for a hike in the jungle, then you might have just found your place.

Our signature rural Nicaragua and beach horseback tours are offered once a day to coincide with low tide. Ranch guests are priority for the tours and they leave here from the ranch.

Are you a surfer? We are one of the closest places to two epic surf breaks: Playa Hermosa and Playa El Yankee. We run shuttles with a local taxi driver or you can rent the jeep.

We have been eco conscious from conception and proudly operate 100% on solar. Our involvement in the community ranges from medical assistance, supplies and teachers for the local schools, Christmas giving programs and interest free micro loans to locals in need.

We sure hope you come out for a few nights to experience the ranch for yourself. The rumors are true - there is a 3 NIGHT MAXIMUM stay here at the ranch. As wonderful as we think our ranch is ~ we limit our guests’ stay to three nights in order for you to enjoy all the other incredible experiences Nicaragua has to offer. We created a selection of great itineraries for your consideration ~ to ensure your visit here in Nicaragua is a great one.

Don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions, or how I might help. Wishing you an incredible Nicaraguan adventure.

Guests can of course enjoy the signature Rural Nicaragua and Beach Horseback Riding tour the ranch is known for. Additional rides on the property are available to in-house guests.

                                  A 450 acre Nature Reserve behind the ranch is ideal for hiking and wildlife viewing including monkeys (Howler, White-faced Capucin and Spider Monkeys), anteaters, toucans, sloths and more.

                                  Rancho Chilamate is located between two known surf beaches: Playa Hermosa and Playa Yanqui.

                                  Please note:

                                  • there is a 3 night maximum at Rancho Chilamate

                                  Year Purchased: 2008

                                  About the owner: They call me Blue. I’m a photographer, cowgirl, host and spiritual anthropologist. I’m originally from Canada but my heart and hat are sit warmly in Nicaragua. When I’m not busy hosting guests at the ranch or on a horseback tour with awesome people - I’m behind the lens- and lovin' it.

                                  Why the Owner Chose San Juan Del Sur:
                                  San Juan del Sur is the spot and this property is only 20 minutes south. Our goal was to be self sufficient and live consciously and this property allows us to have our own well water, 100% solar, enough land for our horseback riding business, a garden to grow fruit and veggies and wake up daily to the gentle roar of the numerous neighboring howler monkey troops. Oh yes, and the weather year round is incredible! and the Nicaragua people even more so.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
                                  Horseback Riding of course. And so much more... Come see for yourself.
