  • Back for a third summer!

    "We spent our third summer at Casa Portugal and continue to be charmed by Jiquilillo. The house is amazing and the caretakers are wonderful people. We have stayed a month here for the last three summers and my sons and I feel at home. Follow Sue and Peter's suggestions for a wonderful experience. Once in town, you will discover all types of activities, from a Volcano hike to a trip to the Padre Ramos estuary. There is a great surf/body board break right in front of the house, and a huge porch with a tiled table where we spend most of our time. I strongly recommend connecting with the folks at Rancho Esperanza. It is a great place to volunteer and enjoy getting to know the staff and guests (typically backpackers from all over the world). We arrange transport from the airport with the owners and stock the kitchen in Chinandega on our way in. We don't bother with a car. The house is exactly as described, and Juan and Jamileth are available to help with anything you need. We (my sons are 12 and 14) hope to return again next summer!!!"

  • Beautiful Condo Hotel in the Heart of Granada

    "We stayed at Xalteva for 3 nights and wished we staying longer. The condo was clean, spacious, air conditioned and beautifully furnished and the kitchen was well equipped. We enjoyed the pool with plenty of chairs and breakfast was great in the courtyard. The property is gated and has security guards. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Ernesto took care of our tours and taxis and was helpful with maps and directions. We would recommend asking for Giovanni if you need a taxi. Because of the location we enjoyed walking to see the local sights and dine is some great restaurants. We also had the good fortune of meeting the owner Jay. We would definitely recommend this property and hope to return for a longer visit next time. Jan and Mike Thunder Bay, Ont"

  • Incredible Experience

    "Seth & Lindsay have it dialed in as property managers! They arranged safe reliable airport pickup/return transport to the house. Our driver was so friendly and toured us through Granada and Rivas for cigars and groceries on the way. The house was amazing! Strongly suggest you sign up for the meal plans even if just 2 meals a day as the place is remote and there are only 2 restaurants in the Iguana Resort gates. Not to mention the cooks are SO good and it is a great way to experience local food. (They will cook you basically anything you want) If you need anything there is a local phone in the house direct to Seth and they can organize any extracurricular activities you want including riding horses on the beach or a sunset sail on a catamaran. The locals are very friendly too!"

  • Inolvidable!! Unforgettable !!!

    "This is our second time in Balcones and it won't be the last one!! It's our family favorite place ever!! We never travel twice to the same place and here we are again counting the days to our next trip to Balcones. We stayed at Casa Francesca last Christmas and we loved every minute of it, sometimes I didn't even want to go to the beach because the house is so amazing that you don't want to leave! The property is great and the pool is amazing!! I can't even try to describe the views, they are unbelievable !! So peaceful ( actually this trip way too peaceful, the monkeys didn't want to come to say hi:(:( Laura helped us since the very beginning making our last minute trip a reality ( Laura, I can't thank you enough!!) and Gabriela and her team were the best, as always!! The guards at the gate were very nice and always happy to help. Hasta pronto Casa Francesca, we'll be back soon!!"
