Casa Istiana is part of TOTOCO Eco-lodge which is located on the slopes of Maderas volcano on Ometepe island. Bordering the lodge is a dry-tropical forest and shade-grown organic coffee plantations. Higher up Maderas is one of only two wet-tropical eco-systems on the pacific coast of Nicaragua. Step out your door and into pristine nature! Other must-do activities on this beautifull island are the kayak tour of the Istian wetlands, the natural springs at Ojo de Agua, the San Ramon waterfall and the many ancient petroglyphs spread around the island....morecollapse

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: I am part owner and general manager of TOTOCO Eco-lodge which bought Casa Istiana from my friends and former business partners who started TOTOCO with me in 2009. I'm from Holland and have now lived on Ometepe for over 5 years. I'm here with my girlfriend Patricia (from Spain) who runs the TOTOCO Foundation (doing community development work here on the island) and our 1 year old son Hendrix.
Why the Owner Chose Ometepe Island:
Coming to Nicaragua to start a sustainable tourism business has been a dream of mine since 2003 when I first moved to Granada, Nicaragua to better get to know the country and its people. Ometepe in particular caught the attention of my friends and I for being a natural wonder that has an established reputation as an eco-tourism destination. The unique energy of the island will capitavate you as it did us!
The Unique Benefits at this Hotel:
The general proximity to the lush nature of the Maderas cloud forest is a special feature of TOTOCO Eco-lodge but what is by far the most spectacular experience is the view. From both the living room and the roof terrace you have sweeping views towards the majestic Concepcion volcano as well as to the immense lake Nicaraguaand the forests and fields of the island. The sun sets exactly where you hope it will and makes staying at Casa Istiana a stunning experience.
